I'm sure George is LOL right now.
Yeah, Josh, that about covers it!
The Series starts tonight, and this expatriate Bay Stater will pull for the Sox. Of course, on Nov 4th, I'll be cheering against the team from Massachusetts when Bill "the boor" Belicheat's New England Video Abusers show up here to take on the Colts...
It does show how a reporter can "spin" a story two ways also
I'll be rooting for the Rockies since as a true Yankee fan, I root for two teams: the Yankees and whoever is playing the Red Sox.
My daughter's best friend's dad is a Rockies fan and his family leaves on a trip to Hawaii today. He's all bummed because his team finally made the Series and he won't get to see any of it.
I'm rooting for the SOX...
New England home team. Now if the Mets were in it I'd have a conflict, 'cause when I lived in NYC I was a Mets fan.
Besides that the Rockies have the ugliest uniforms in baseball (those black tunic things). Yuck!
SI.com had a photo piece a few months ago....
....on the ugliest uniforms in sports history. There were some doozies, like those old Astros uniforms from the 70s. Remember them? Ecccch.
Yes. They looked like cigarette packs.
I remember those Astros' uniforms!
Once when I was playing slow pitch softball while in the Air Force, our team captain, who was from Houston, decided that that pattern - in shades of green - would be nice for our uniforms. YECCCCCHHHH.
It's like the thing NFL teams do with the retro uniforms; some of them are truly hideous. Specifically, I'm thinking of the blue and gold atrocities that the Eagles foisted on us a few weeks ago...
Some pics, for those who haven't had the pleasure

There have been some hideous uniforms on other teams as well.
I gotta cheer for the Red Sox if I'm forced to pick one...
being a Cubs fan, they're kinda like long-lost-cousins, ya know?
Hee hee...one down!
I hope it's a sweep. The season is far too long nowadays.
I only saw a little bit of the game....
....but the Rockies looked over matched. They did beat the Red Sox 2 out of 3 times during the regular season though, so who knows how the Series will go. It may well depend on how many times the Red Sox can get Beckett to pitch.
As an aside, Josh Beckett is a perfect example of why Brian Cashman, and not Joe Torre, should be held accountable for the Yankees early demise. The Yankees could have pursued Beckett but chose not to. That decision wasn't Torre's; it was Cashman's.
two to go.
A shame the series won't end at Fenway though.
See my post to Paul
They will not be able to play the same game in Colorado. It should be interesting.
I suppose you have a point....
it's theoretically possible the Rockies could avoid a sweep.
Now you can concentrate on the NBA
No squeakyball for me!!
Almost as dumb as soccer IMHO.
Oh you must be an NHL guy then !
Soccer on ice skates.
Who thought that was a good idea?
A Canadian I'll bet.
I wonder if the Rockies would do better if their fans stopped waving those white surrender flags all the time? Too pessimistic!
Yup, the Rockies seem way over matched
I thought those looked like surrender flags too, LOL.
One of my favorite World Series moments was in game 4 of the '99 series. The Yankees were up 3-0 on the Braves, and at Yankee Stadium the fans started mocking the tomahawk chop -- with brooms.
I agree they are overmatched...
But they are putting up a good fight, I'll give them that. Last night's game was great but it was about an hour and a half too long.
Rooting for the Rockies: How's that working out for you?
So far, Josh, I'd have to say not well, since they're down 0-2 after last night. Meanwhile, given the number of people who've actually considered taking the job as Yankees' manager, I understand that Steinbrenner's bring in the judges from American Idol to assist in the process, and intends to make the whole thing a reality show.
It will be called Who Wants To Be George's Punching Bag, and will also feature Brian Cashman as emcee and occasional comic relief...
They seemed way over matched in game 1
Game 2 showed that they're still in it, at least. They held that Red Sox lineup to two runs.
Things will be interesting in Colorado. The Red Sox will have to decide whether to have David Ortiz play first base (a defensive liability) or bench him (an offensive liability that also pretty much takes the bat out of Manny's hands).
As for the Yankees, I'm still hoping Girardi gets the job. An announcement could come as soon as today.
Detroit papers are readying their headline:
LONG LAYOFF COOLS COLORADO
The Bosox use the brooms!
Boston 4, Colorado 3, completing a 4-0 sweep! YIPPEEE!
Congrats to the winners
At least the other team showed up this time (sort of). The Cardinals just rolled over and handed it to them in 2004.
Meanwhile, A-Rod has demonstrated yet again what he's made of: cold hard cash. Good riddance. I hope he gets his $30 million --- from the Devil Rays or Royals.
