This World Series wasn’t exactly the most popular, going in. People came up with a whole lot of reasons that they didn’t want to watch and not that many reasons they did. I danced randomly in the street and wore my antlers around town but that didn’t really convince anyone. (Hmm, I wonder why.)
Then came Game 6 and all its magic and craziness and bam, Game 7 got the highest ratings in almost 10 years. And suddenly this was a series for the ages and baseball is an awesome game and really, why weren’t we all watching before?
*straightens fedora and says, I was watching before*
(Incidentally, why does this blog make me look like such a hipster all the time?)
No, really, what I’m trying to say is that I’m really glad that game brought baseball back to the forefront, in a way, and at the same time I hope the doubters will take this as a li’l sign, if you will. The World Series is a great time and yep, history will be made. Enjoy it, don’t let everything else get in the way and don’t just start watching when things get really famous.
Baseball is an awesome game. But not just sometimes. Always. Game 6 didn’t prove anything, it only kind of righted people’s minds and for that I am glad. Let’s all just watch the World Series next year and cut the cackle, as they say in Tintin. (Can I also just take this moment, then, to promo the Tintin movie which is coming out in December? I haven’t been this excited about a new film since Takers. Or something.)
