So I watched the 1st game of the World Series last night

I've always loved baseball. I lived in the Houston area for many years, and would see the (dis)Astros at least 4 or 5 times per year.

I left the game when the players got greedy, when the owners all wanted new stadiums...

Last night I tried to watch the game. I made it until about the 7th inning. I had to turn that crap off.

- when did the color commentators start talking so much? It would be nice if they had something to say, but they don't

- why do we need on field announcers giving us commentary that just a bunch of hot air? Just because you're a girl doesn't mean I have to listen to you; just because you wear a stupid bow tie makes you neither provocative nor smart.

- why all the stupid statistics that mean nothing

Can y'all just shut up and let me enjoy the game? Oh, that guy Pence from SF is fun to watch.

I suffered through the whole game, but turned off the tv sound after four innings and listened to ESPN radio for the sound. Better, but the game still sucked. The home boys better pick it up tonight.

The fans sure looked pretty shell-shocked by the middle of the game. They had been promised world-class ball, and it's not that they were denied, just that it came from the guys in orange and black.

Hard to believe this about a series that is seven games long, but the odds over the last 26 years overwhelmingly -- it's not even close -- favor the team which wins game 1.

I'll watch again tonight, I'm sure.

But I'm gonna turn the volume off.

Was hoping for a better show from the Royals vs. SF than my Cards gave them. Alas.

I do this for all baseball. Don't watch football, bores me. Soccer, most of the commentary is worth listening to until World Cup comes around, then it's too much chatter.

Well you know, lots of people turn the sound off.
It's amazing the lack of sound.
I mean, the silence is deafening.
At the ball park, people listen to the game on their radios, some keep score themselves, and some people are deaf.
I mean it's a total sound-free zone everywhere for them.
Yes, sir. Nothing. Just golden silence.
Ha ha ha ha ha!
They can consider themselves lucky in some ways, right Lobby?

KC left Shields in way too long. What's the over/under on a sweep?

When we used to go to all the Cards games we always listened to the radio while at the park, especially a best friend of ours cause she is blind!
P.S. I would love post a pic of our blind female friend of ours for you guys cause you would go nuts, she's freakin stunning/gorgeous!! (and now married, not to me).

GO ROYALS!

KC has got some cute

blonds sitting behind homeplate. Watching a stream from England, I love the voices for the ads. The announcers are Rick Sutcliff and Gary Somebody, they are pumped about the great museums in KC.

I take the "no sweep" bet.
