I don't really follow baseball -- the only time I've seen much of a World Series was when I was in 8th grade, and my english teacher, Mrs. Butcher, brought a T.V. into the classroom so she could watch it. Watching baseball is all we did for several days.
But I do know about the misfortunes of both the Cubs and the Red Sox, and it seems to me better that only one of those teams should be in the series, anyway. If they played each other, it would just be too sad that one of them had to lose. Better if the Red Sox kick Florida's ass this year, and the Cubs get to slaughter the Yankees next year. That would make a much better story.
I probably still won't watch, of course, but eventually I'll see a silly, sentimental P.B.S. documentary about it, I'm sure.
