Bring It On!
So, it has come to this. Tonight, the Yanks and the Sawks got at it again for the AL Pennant. Tonight. 8:00pm. The Boogie Down. If you can't be there, check it out on Fox tonight.
Adding fuel to the fire this year is a lot of off the field BS that has nothing to do with the game. First is the A-Rod deal. Then, of course, there is the George Steinbrenner quote following the A-Rod deal,
We understand that John Henry must be embarrassed, frustrated and disappointed by his failure in this transaction. Unlike the Yankees, he chose not to go the extra distance for his fans in Boston.Then there was the July 24th Brawl between A-Rod & Vaginatek, as well as well as Gabe "The Babe" and Tanyon Sturze. Most recent is a brouhaha about a T Shirt that says "Who's Your Daddy" You know, every time I think the Sox are not that bad, they do something colossally stupid or whiny.
In addition to all this, ESPN.com recently published an article on the origins of the Curse of the Babe which was a GREAT read. Then suddenly, the article disappeard off their site (it even was removed from the Sports Guy's Intern's Links Page as well). Spooky.
Regardless, it's not gonna be a battle of the Owners, or the Fans, it's a battle between the teams. See how the stack up.
The Best Post Season Closer Ever
One of the Best Post-Season Starters
As far as mystique goes, You have the Fearsome Curse of the Babe
vs. the fearsome Mahow Mahow
You decide. Either way, it's gonna be a great compelling series. There is only one thing left to say, Bring it on!
