And Do You Care Who Wins?
As I was flipping through the stations last night trying to decide what to watch next, I happened to flip by the World Series. It took me 0.4 seconds, record time, to flip away from FOX. No way could I watch that. It was way too soon (not to mention the fact that I had tickets to the game, and I realized that I should have been sitting in Jacobs Field rooting on the Tribe). Those accidental 0.4 seconds is probably all I will see of this World Series. I’m going to make a more focused effort on ensuring I don’t accidentally stumble on it again. I just can’t watch.
I’m not the only, it seems. I guess reliever Jensen Lewis also feels like he can’t watch,
“I’ve got such a sick feeling in my stomach (from losing Game 7 of the American League Championship Series to the Boston Red Sox). I don’t think any of us (Indians players) will watch it. You think a lot of the what-ifs.”
So this got me to thinking, how many of you will be watching the World Series, and regardless of whether you’re watching or not, who do you want to win? I’ve already told you that I will not be watching. What I haven’t told you, and what may surprise some of you, is that I am rooting 100% for the Sux. I just couldn’t bear the thought of the team that beat us going out and laying an egg against the inferior National League. I want Boston to make a statement, that the American League is the better league and that the Indians therefore truly did lose to the best team in baseball. I know, it’s not a lot, but I can take some small, tiny solace in that thought.
So let me know. Leave me a comment, let me know if you’re planning on watching the World Series at all and who you would prefer win.
