Game 7 of the World Series goes down tonight, and I think I’d be a bad sports blogger if I didn’t tell you to put aside whatever reservations you have about watching boring-old baseball and watch it. Don’t watch an all new episode of ‘Chuck’, don’t watch any of the season’s 14 new shows about how fairy tales are happening in real life, don’t watch Smackdown. Watch baseball. These two teams have played a hell of a series, and no matter what goes down tonight they deserve your attention. Watch it with your son, and use Joe Buck as an example of how you’re good at your job, so no matter what your child wants to do with his life, he can always do your job, only way worse. Fathers and sons, and all of that.
If you aren’t convinced, check out Burnsy’s illustrated recap of the crazy genius of game 6. Personally, I’m rooting for the Rangers. Sure, I live in Texas, but I want them to win so I can drive three hours north and take a bunch of pictures of drunk people carousing for my website. Also, there might be riots in St. Louis if the Cardinals win, but we’d be fine, as Arlington is barely a city to begin with. What’re they going to do, f**k up the Six Flags?
Have a safe, happy and hopefully fire-free weekend, everybody.
