While I hadn't followed baseball throughout the season, I do pay attention during the playoffs. Interestingly enough, I found myself rooting on the Dodgers to beat the Cardinals. Grown up a Giants fan, rooting for the Dodgers, unspeakable? No, not this year. The Dodgers had an incredible season. The kind of season they haven't had in a number of years. The Cards, they seem to reach post season every year, kind of a lackluster white-collar team. Gotta a go with the Dodgers~ Sorry guys.
Needless to say, the Cards are in, the Dodgers out. So now I'm going with the Red Sox, and here's why:
I'll start with the Cardinals~ They dropped the ball last night! Memories of my fifth grade farm team.
The Red Sox~ Fenway Park is arguably the best place to watch a baseball game: throwback(back to 1912), the Green Monster, the passionate blue-collar fans, better beer, better beards, scruffy and scrappy.
But the biggest reason I'm cheering on the Boston Red Sox tonight is this hand painted mural in my fan cave~~~
The prior owners of the house must have been big fans, so naturally, I am too.
