Oh yeahπŸ’”

Yanks Dodgers could be fun though (not as fun as Yanks Cubs)
Will Yanks - Dodgers leave cons with no one to root for?

Was it less heartbreaking than a close game would have been? I pretty much counted it as over in the 3rd, just surfed back every now and then to see if there had been a miracle.

Definitely over after the slam. I didn't torture myself to much after that, did some channel flipping and watched the last out.

No complaints here, last season was magical, world series hangovers are real. They stole one from the Gnats, Maddon shot his wad with the pitching staff.

If you're gonna lose, I'd rather not have the heartbreak, 2003 still hurts, I'm finally over 1984.

Sadly, I've had to change my signature.

:D Not starting with '01' is something. Let's hope they don't have to add another placard again.

Not passionately for either, may not even know how I feel until I start watching the 1st game. You?

Still don't care. I think I'll root for whoever is losing the Series or losing a game in a tied Series.

I was going to root for the beard, but . . .

Go Astros . . . for now.

Great πŸ‘series so far. A little easier to enjoy when you're not living and breathing every pitch. ⚾

Unbelievable game, tied at 12, bottom of the ninth.
Even Joe Buck can't ruin it.

Wow! The Dodgers tied it in the top of the ninth with 2 outs and 2 strikes.

I should have gambled on my wish.

Darn, I lost all of my imaginary winnings making an imaginary bet on Game 7 being close. Good for the sodden people of Houston.

Congrats to Houston, I had L.A.in seven, oh well.

A GREAT World Series deserved a better game 7.

World Series Gambler Walking Away After Going Six for Six and Winning $14 Million

Sir Let it Ride is no more. Long live Sir Let it Ride.

The mysterious World Series gambler, who bet on the winning team in each of the first six games of the series and won $14 million in the process, will walk away with his winnings and will not bet on Game 7....
Wow. Based on what I posted here, I would have gone 3 for 3 since "extra innings!" was a joke that I never would have really bet on. But, I probably would have bet on the other 4 games to uncertain effect.
