Well I’ll Be a Monkey’s Uncle

Congrats to the Giants on defeating the Phillies, winning the National League Championship and moving on to face the Rangers in the World Series. When this post season started, my main wish was to not see a New York Yankees / Philadelphia Phillies World Series. I would of settled for either team making it to […]

Congratulations to the Texas Rangers for defeating the New York Yankees to become the 2010 American League Champs, and move on to the World Series for the first time in the history of their franchise.

Things Certainly Are Getting Interesting
October 22nd, 2010 by slangon

A day or two ago, both teams that I hate were looking at a 3-1 deficit in their respective Championship Series, and both teams have managed to pull themselves up by the bootstraps to force at least a game 6. Wednesday CC Sabathia and the Yanks did it against the Rangers, and last night Doc […]

It Just Keeps Getting Better.
October 20th, 2010 by slangon

Apparently I have much more success rooting for teams that I don’t really root for than I do rooting for my own team.

I was thinking that the Rangers might win last night, but I really wasn’t expecting that particular outcome. I almost feel bad for Andy Pettitte.

The Giants beat the Phillies ace in Philadelphia, leaving Citizens Bank Park with the Series at 1-1 after facing the 2 Roys. The other Giants hung […]

On we march into the second round of the playoffs. I can’t say I saw too many surprises in the outcome. Although, I will admit that I thought that the Braves would’ve made a better showing against the Giants. I really thought that they had the better team. I guess the San Francisco pitching and […]

Postseason Thoughts from a Fan Standing on the Outside
October 6th, 2010 by slangon

So today starts the 2010 Major League Baseball Postseason. Some of you may be shocked to learn that my beloved Mets did not make the cut this year. Yeah. I know. Crazy, isn’t it? Anyway, despite not having my team in the mix to root for, I still always love watching the playoffs and the […]
