In spite of former statements, and for once a thankful divergence of recent headlines, CONGRADULATIONS HOUSTON! Not being a bezbol fan muchly, this has been one helluva series. Shows to not take the World Serious... this has been glorious entertainment without distractions. Finally. All well-earned, all well-played, other than one faux pas from one faux-hero... until next year.



Everything fun in life is either illegal, immoral or fattening. I've had a lot of fun.

My wife and one of my sons wore their Dodger caps. We were hoping to have fun, and we loved the park, which is beautiful, and the food is amazing. But it sucked because we were heckled and abused the entire game. Which the Dodgers won. Stay classy, burrohat.

Altogether an entertaining Series.

I am more of a baseball fan, than a fan of any organization. This was great baseball.

Dodgers hit in some tough luck last night. They had their chances to come back. Just didnt happen.

Baseball now has a few organizations that have developed several good young players from within their organizations (as opposed to signing expensive free agents); augmented by a good trade or two. This means they will be good for the next few years. I would count the Dodgers, the Astros, the Yankees, the Red Sox, the Cubs and Cleveland in this camp.

Atlanta is probably poised to enter this group, with a trade or two. They have drafted well and have traded for a lot of good, young players.

More baseball than anyone on Nomads wants to know, I suppose........

Dodgers just didn't bring their "A" game last night. Oh well, good for Huston. Very entertaining series, good to be a baseball fan as opposed to the other spoiled brat professional sports teams.

Congrats to Houston


Two teams that were the cream of the crop and very even in talent and heart.

To me the HUGE difference was in the managing and coaching, with the big advantage to Houston.

Am I one of the few who thinks Roberts almost single handedly could of lost the series? Very poor management of his players. IMO.

I've had the same experience and not only Giants fans but Raider fans as well.

Great series, congratulations Houston, you earned it.

Difficult to Watch TV


Having broken my usual abstinence from watching baseball (or ANY sport) LIVE due to the over-abundance of irritating commercials, I found that despite paying DISH $168.35 per month there wasn't a decent movie to set the remote recall to for the commercial breaks.

SO ................. I stuck a DVD in the player (first The Cruel Sea - later L.A. Confidential) and switched back and forth from TV to DVD.

Still, frustrated that I would consistently underestimate the LONG commercial interval.

Even more frustrating was that the hapless Dodgers were not blown out MORE so that time wouldn't be wasted hanging around through the 7th waiting for a possible comeback.

It's hard to believe that viewers sit through ALL of those commercials. THAT takes a real fanatic.

Fox introduced a new type of commercial that I have never seen, during a baseball game. They would squeeze the game into a small box on the screen, display the text and logo of a business and had a voice-over plug it. It was all of five seconds........but there were more than a few of them.

Sign of the times


I was at the Dodger-Cub game when Justin Turner hit the home run in the bottom of the ninth and noticed the following.

After every 1/2 of an inning, a countdown clock started in center field and behind home plate and the game could not start until the clock got to zero. The time varied but I think the average was 3-5 minutes. It wasn't a matter if the pitcher was ready, he had to wait until the clock got to zero.
Guess someone has to pay for those salaries.

The Giants fan that was assaulted after a game at Dodger Stadium was Brian Stowe. He was not killed, but close. They bring him to an occasional Giants game in his wheelchair.
I have not seen such bad behavior at Giants games as described but quit going to Niner games because it got so ugly.
And, my son is an Alameda County deputy sheriff and he sometimes drives "The Bus" that they park under the Coliseum to haul off the drunks from Raider games. 55 to the bus and sometimes there are half dozen buses.
Vegas, you are welcome to these hoodlums disguised as fans.
My 65 year old cousin with two knee replacements got knocked on his burro at California Speedway last year by a young dude after the dude had grabbed my cousin's daughter by the bottom and my cousin protested.
Makes going to any event an adventure, and not a fun one at that.
