I enjoy baseball. Like many of you, I wake up in the morning and make sure I plan my day around the evening's Rays game. I open my Google calendar and delete any obligations overlapping or near the Rays game, put on my ski mask, and go to work.
But now the Rays season has ended, I must ask myself: For whom do I root? I still enjoy watching baseball, but I have distinct dis-affinities for many of the teams in the playoffs. Personally, I feel I should root for the Giants because: (a) Brian Wilson's Greek god-like beard, and (b) I hate the Yankees (duh), the Phillies (since 2008), and the Rangers (since last week).
But what about you, Mr./Ms. Joe DRaysBay? Are you pulling for the Rangers to win, so we will have been beaten by the champs only? Do you want the Yankees to win because you just drank four 20 oz. bottles of motor oil and you can't think straight? Or would you prefer to see the Phillies beat the tar out of the Yankees? Let me know in the poll, and then explain your rationale in the comments section.
