This is the greatest moment in “America’s game” and one that you haven’t been even involved in since 2002. The last time you won one was about the year I was born, and I’m considered a fossil by most. The fact that you lost more games than you won throughout the entire month of August and it took a total melt-down by San Diego for you to get into the playoffs…
The first thing the fans do is Boo the entire starting lineup of Texas, with the exception of Benji Molina – the only one on Texas who has ever “done anything wrong” to our team (and not intentionally – HE PLAYED HIS HEART OUT FOR US).
Have you not heard Josh Hamilton’s story and cried? I did when he had to pawn his wife’s wedding ring for coke, and then later came back clean and sober. There are 24 other stories on that team, probably better than the average schlep in the stands that has the audacity to boo them.
We are lucky to be alive, let alone in a world series. They are also blessed to be our competitors. For (whatever you consider to be your comfortable equivalent of God)’s sake. Thank you lucky stars you can afford tickets and give your opponent some respect. Just like Philly, he may be “better than you” but we could still win. I think it might take all the Karma we can produce to effect that. Wishing you opponent ill is NOT GOOD KARMA!!!
Those ignorant little so and so’s with their 3 martini lunches at ‘MoMo’s” could cost us a very humbling gut shot. I don’t think we can count on 6 more 18 run games. I will certainly understand it if Texas wins. I humbly apologize for our disrespect.
