    Are you going to watch the World Series?

    My Cubs were out a month ago, so my baseball watching desire is about done for the year. Is anyone else calling it a season and moving onto better things?
    As much as I hate to say it, my picks are Cards vs. Yanks. What's yours?

    I always try an watch some of the games. I haven't watched a full series since my White Sox won it.

    Re: Are you going to watch the World Series?

    Phillies/Angels is my guess. If the Twins pull it out and go instead of Detroit, Yankees/Phillies. Yankees won't be able to beat both the Tigers and Angels so hopefully Boston would knock the Angels out if the Yankees got by the Tigers.

    I'll probably watch regardless just because it's something other than doing homework.

    I'd much rather watch "Police women of Broward County"

    Re: Are you going to watch the World Series?

    probably 1/2 a game or so.. that is all I can take of baseball on TV.

    Re: Are you going to watch the World Series?

    If the Cards are in I will watch every game. If not, I will only be interested to see who wins when it's all over.

    My interest in baseball drops drastically as soon as football season starts.

    Re: Are you going to watch the World Series?

    Probably depends on who it is, what night, what's up against it on tv or other activities.

    World Series has never been "must see" tv for me like the Superbowl.

    But it's one of those events that I'll have a tv on and kinda have it in the background if I'm doing something else - not really paying complete attention.

    Re: Are you going to watch the World Series?

    Of course I'll watch at least a couple games regardless who makes it.. my teams are long since out of the race. Probably won't make a point of watching each and every game but if I am in front of the TV it will be on.

    What else am I going to watch, some reality show?

    Watch? Attend, Hell Yeah! Go Rockies!!!

    It should be noted that since the start of June, they have played the best baseball in the National League.

    I'll be watching even though my Royals won't be playing in it. Oh well, beats being a Cubs fan.

    Re: Are you going to watch the World Series?

    If the Twins are in it I will watch. Maybe if the Angels are in it too, to watch Hunter. I might watch if the Phillies are in it because I like them as my National League team.......but even if they are in it not sure I could watch if the Yankees or Red Sox are there.

    Re: Are you going to watch the World Series?

    There are several teams I enjoy rooting against so that helps. I'll watch anyway as I love the game. In the meantime the Orioles have posted their 12th losing season in a row...


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    It's the curse of Brady Anderson and his possible PED'd biceps.
