Before the World Series started, I had this very conversation on two separate occasions with two friends who don't know each other.
FRIEND: So who do you want to win the World Series?
ME: I don't care; I'm not going to watch it.
ME: Nope. I don't like either the Phillies or the Yankees. The Phillies won last year, and I don't like it when teams win back-to-back, and I just plain hate the Yankees. So I'm not watching.
FRIEND: Come on, it's baseball. You love baseball.
ME: I need a break. I'm not interested.
FRIEND: Oh, you'll watch. So you want the Phillies to win, right?
ME: I don't care! I'm not going to watch.
FRIEND (smirking): Yeah, you will; you'll watch.
Yeah, so I watched at least part of every game. Do I have smart friends or what?
However, I can't bring myself to say congratulations to Yankee fans. Before I joined Twitter, I didn't even know there was such a thing as a good Yankess fan -- every one I had ever met before was either a) not really a baseball fan and only liked the Yankees because they somehow thought it was cool, or b) a real ass. Now I know that there are three good ones. So, congratulations to them (you know who you are).
So, like I do every First Post-Baseball Day, I'll try to figure out how to get a life for the next five months. *sigh*
