And now for something completely different........
It's Red Sox against Redbirds, and it ought to be good. There is something important here at stake that many people will forget to mention in the next week. Now that the Yankees are cursed, and will never win another World Series, the race to overtake their locked-in-stone-26 World Championships is on.
Yankees 26Now as for the games to be played starting this weekend, I refuse to talk any more about the future. That didn't work. I can't take the stress. Now I sit back and I watch and I comment on the present and the past, but I don't look forward. I refuse to.
That old strategy wasn't working and it may or may not have led to a nervous breakdown early this week.
I stopped that, it wasn't healthy and I feel much better for it....at least until the playoffs mercifully end. I've learned from the past, and all I know for sure is that the Red Sox and Cardinals are two very very good teams.
By the only measure that will matter in ten years, these two teams are even. They are both pennant winners, and neither is a dime better than the other. At the end of this series, however, one team will be remembered as champions, and the other will be the answer to a trivia question.
I don't know who will end up with the rings, and I don't care to waste my time thinking about it. I'm just going to sit back and let this ride take me where it wants.
See you guys Saturday night.
