-Jeff Passan, from the article “America is missing out on a great World Series”
This is my favorite quote from an awesome article that totally sums up my feelings about this World Series. As I write this, Josh Hamilton (an amazing human interest story) has just hit a two-run home run in the top of the 10th inning to break a 7-7 tie after St. Louis came back to tie it in the 9th.
I guess I’m just really sick about how people view baseball. If the Yankees and Red Sox are doing well, it’s not worth watching because baseball’s ruled by the elite, upper class of teams. When it’s too smaller market teams, it’s not worth watching because, “who cares?”
And baseball has gotten such a raw deal with steroids, it’s kind of unbelievable. So, thank God that someone injects some rationality into this conversation.
And I already can’t wait til next year.
