So they won …

Congrats go to the Red Sox and all that, but as a Brit, I just don’t get baseball. I’m sorry, but watching last nights game, the most exciting game *EVAH* had me bored after about 5 minutes. And no, I don’t like cricket either.

And what is all this rioting, car tipping and other crap all about? If you’re going to riot after a game, do it properly (

With all this stuff about the Sox in the news, it’s easy to forget that there is a huge event coming up very soon which everyone should be much more conerned about than some silly little game.

I mean come on, it’s Halloween on Sunday!

    Its easy to call it silly, and part of me would agree. But there is something about the fact that this silly game effects so many different people. Some may argue that people should care more about art, or politics, whatever. But they don’t. Sport and tribal activities are a fact. I don’t think it has anything thing with being a brit.

    i just thought that everything that happened kind of had an erie feeling to it after all the lunar eclipse that occurred wed. night ended at 11:45 et that was pretty close to the end of the game and also the last out was recorded off a groundout by cardinals’ shortstop edgar renteria who wore #3 the famed number of Babe Ruth could it have been the sign of the curse being retired…and also the red sox not only broke the curse but set many world series records including the only team ever to win a 7 game series after trailing 0-3 to the yankees

    Oy! Smeg, I’m anxious about Tuesady more than I was about the Sox, but Thommy has a point. 40 years ago, CLR James wrote a book, Beyond a Boundary ostensibly about cricket, but also about colonialism and a lot more.

    The Red Sox saga is much the same. Baseball can be nothing more than a soap opera with chewing tobacco — and often is. But it can have a deeper meaning as well. Not mythical, mystical, or supernatural, but historical, sociological, political.
