But if I weren’t a Red Sox fan, I’d probably agree with them.
So let’s take a look at the other match ups in big league baseball… you’ll find there is reason to watch games in places other than the Bronx.
The “We were good in the late 70s and early 80s” Series.
The “I Swear, we both won pennants in the last 5 years even though you probably forgot about them” Series.
The “Battle for Pennsylvania” Series… make that The “Incredibly Lopsided Battle for Pennsylvania” Series… or the “I Can’t Believe The Flyers Are Still In It And The Penguins Aren’t” Series
The “If This Were The Early 90s This Would Be A Match Up Of Recent World Series Winners” Series
The “Average Age Of Our Players Is 22” Series
The “Lousy Central Pick By Sully for 2010 vs. Lousy Central Pick By Sully for 2009” Series
The “We Both Beat The Yankees In The World Series Last Decade” Series
The “I Swear This Used To Be A Heated Rivalry” Series
The “If The Rockies With The World Series Before The Cubs Then Cub Fans Will All Be On Suicide Watch” Series
The “Last Time the Angels will be BEHIND the Rangers All Year” Series
The “Can You Believe This Is A Match Up of SECOND PLACE Teams?” Series
The “Did we BOTH Really Think We Had A Shot Against The Angels?” Series
The “Can You Believe First Place Is On The Line?” Series
The “Bad Divorce vs. Bad Management” Series
So there you have it… there are great series up and down the dial. So if you don’t want to watch Red Sox/Yankees, flip around and quit yer belly aching.
