Yeah, lots of ingredients in the mix that make a team a winner.
To bad about the Yankees....nah!...next year, Twins!, if not Sox(White or Red).

Re: There's Always Baseball

My vote is for the White Sox.* This coming from an avid Red Sox fan who traveled this summer to see the Red Sox play the Cubs in Chicago, the Devil Rays in St. Pete., and the Orioles in Baltimore.

I thought Camden Yards had the best park although my 9 year old son still loved Fenway the most.* I guess he'll be one of those fans who would never want to see Fenway replaced .

Anyone have any votes for there favorite park that we need to visit?

Based on the parks I've been to and ranked in order of ambience:

1. Wrigley
Fenway
2. PacBell (Giants)
3. Coors Field
4. Milwaukee
5. Oakland
6. Fort Myers-Twins 8)
7. White Sox (had to pay $10 for someone to "watch" my car)
8. Detroit (same as above except it was $20, area seemed like out of Robocop)
9. MetroDome (Twins) - Don't travel out of your way for this. See it if you want to know how bad it can be - it is interesting though when the ball hits the ceiling or the other team can't see the ball

Re: World Series

Yakers, very happy guy originally from Chi Town. Lived on the north side but liked the Sox as my older brother liked the Cubs and he got first pick. Funny, the family is now all on the south side. Happy calls around this evening.

Go Sox!!!!!!

Pre-season Vegas odds on the White Sox to win the world series: 100 - 1. (Hope you got some of that.)

Re: World Series

My new team (this year) is the Astros. This should be a low-scoring affair. We need another professional sports champion in Texas. Now the Cowboys.....

Saw the "Tuna" running out in the field with the Cowboys yesterday. He's got some massive man-boobs. Needs to either get a super-support bra, or lose a helluva lot of weight.

Re: World Series

Tuna couldn't stand retirement. He had it made, couple of super bowl rings, going into record books, etc. But, he got bored, and came back. He's got everybody convinced in Dallas that he's the 2nd coming. He did hit it on the head, himself. "If I don't win", he said, "Then the kids will laugh at me. Tell me I'm old-fashioned and out-of-date." Team looks better this year, using his methods. He's 64 now, so can't imagine he'll reup his contract which runs out, I believe next year. If he gets to the playoffs, I'm a believer. And the Super Bowl? Well, he can stay as long as he wants.....

Why do baseball players spit so much? What other sport is there spitting?

There should be more spitting, especially in those, shall we say, "boring sports".
How about chess.* Spitting would be great.*
And spitting shouldn't be limited to just sports.
How bout those marching bands during halftime,
or those kids spelling bees we always see on TV.
Spit is happening* 8)

and another thing...why can't the guys keep the dugout cleaner? Ever look at the floor of a dugout? Like a sewer! Can't these guys put their trash in a can or a recycle bin? Didn't their mothers raise them to do better than that? What kind of example are they setting for our youth I ask you? I'm surprised they aren't urinating on the dugout floor while we watch.....

That's actually a pretty good question, regarding the new generation of ball-players.

When I was playing ball, and actually until the 70's, the reason there was so much spitting going on is that most of the players used to load up with a cheek full of "chaw". You either spit out the juice, or turned green.

Just finished watching Ledge serve up a "hanging" slider to the big guy, and they're going to St. Louis.

I have a feeling Houston is really going to regret not putting them away. In any case, more fun ahead.

Re: World Series

They still chew tobacco... you just don't see it on TV...or they use bubble gum during the games. Nasty habit. Another thing they do is eat sunflower seeds and spit out the hulls.

Re: World Series

Could you imagine seeing Arnold or Jack analyzing a major putt at the Masters and then spitting out a good wad right before the putt. * On the other hand,* I can't imagine not seeing that in major league baseball.*

Dan ol' buddy, you're starting to sound way too much like my DW. Maybe you need to spit, scratch youself, have a brew and just relax... 8)

If you don't change your ways, you're going start posting about how wonderful some show was you saw on HGTV!

I can imagine John Daly or Craig Stadler doing that or maybe relieving themselves behind a tree.
