In just a few short hours World Series tickets will be going on sale. I will be attempting to score seats for games three, four and/or five. Being as tickets are only being sold online, season ticket holders get first dibs and only 18,000 seats will be available to the general public per game, chances are slim that I will be drunkenly heckling Coco Crisp for being benched from the nosebleeds. If no tickets are procured, I will officially renounce the Christian messiah and go the god-hating way of Perez.
Update: The risen infant Christ has forsaken me. Ticket purchasing attempts were made on a Mac via Firefox, Safari and Netscape while simultaneously rolling the office PC test computer on IE, Firefox and Netscape. All to no avail. (Shaking fist at sky and screaming, “Evolution rules!”)
Brozzizzo, it will be fun to root against you.
Welcome to the sweet rationality and logic that is atheism. Now you, too, are fully qualified to deride your favorite player when he points to the sky after crossing the plate.
Not that you didn’t already do that…
Hook up your Texas Instruments super computer Brozy, it’ll be another rough ride today.
Kinyah: Right back ‘atcha. Your town is probably going to win a Super Bowl. You don’t need a World Series crown, too.
Gary: Nothing I hate more than an athlete that thanks his god when he does good but blames himself when he does bad.
CH: As I post this comment I have been waiting in refresh hell for a magical screen to pop up that will score me some tickets to game four.
on numerous occasions in the last week (i am a bartender) i have espoused the following notion: when folks say “remember the golden days?” that here in new england we’re living in them NOW, so really, really enjoy it.
i’ve also confessed to being a completely spoiled, jaded fuck. i don’t just want to win, i expect to win. i think the pats pissed away the last two super bowls.
kids who are now 7 – 10 don’t understand what it’s like to have your football team go 2-14 or 1-15 with dick macpherson as coach. or to have your guts ripped out when your baseball team loses two WS game sevens in a decade (’75 &’86). they think it’s always been this way. winning.
frankly, i hope your rox put on a great show and still get swept. i can’t take another game 7. unless we win of course. 😉
I know how you feel, Kinyah. The wife and I are huge baseball fans and were at Coors Field during some LEAAAAAAN times. Only until they beat the Padres in the one-game playoff did bandwagoners jump on. ‘Course this is the nature of Colorado professional sports; team languishes, people bitch, no support (unless it’s the Broncos), than a win comes and everyone is happy for 8 years. The Rox are young and scary. I would definitely not want to face them. Being a realistic baseball fan? I say the Rox in 6. They beat Beckett in June. Wakefield was the only one who dominated them. Now that he is out. Schilling is a shell of a former great pitcher. Dice K has only threw 5 or so innings in his last 2 post-season starts? Yikes.
