Tweet of the Day:
You gotta love Hunter Pence. Said didn't know until he got here that Kanas City is in Missouri and not Kansas. "I wasn't a geography major."— Tom (@Haudricourt) October 20, 2014
Enjoy these final few days of the 2014 season, before a long cold baseball-free winter is once again upon us. And before I wax too poetic and wallow in the sad dismal dreary months ahead, I want to know: on whose World Series bandwagon are you getting comfy?
Blasting Journey or Lorde on an endless loop?
Binge watching Rob Schneider or Paul Rudd flicks?
Chowing down on sourdough or BBQ?
I could go on and on, but my brain is fried, it's a Monday night, and I'm really just ready to watch some baseball.
So, despite my Giants loyalties, I'm wanting this Royals win streak to continue. And I really, really, really want Shields to win a World Series. #TakeTheCrown it is. Sorry Buster.
