The Los Angeles Dodgers are going back to the World Series!!

They finished off the Cubs in style last night, 11-1. Clayton Kershaw got an easy win with these many runs and lead them to the series. But Kiki Hernandez, the man of the night, he hit 3 home runs last night and one of them was a grand slam, for a total of 7 runs batted in!

So now they wait, and will play the winner of the NY Yankees and Houston Astros series. The Yankees lead that series 3 games to 2, and the next game is tonight at 8pm. I'm pulling for the Yankees, I would love to see that matchup!! And even better, my wife has some connections and "may" be able to get us into one of the games. One of the guys she works with has season tickets, 4 tickets per game.

Screw that. I'd like to see those freakin' perennial bridesmaids the Astros actually go for once. F-ing choke masters of MLB beyond compare.

As a big Dodgers fan, I remember that moment very clearly!! Kirk Gibson was my hero for awhile there!!

Dodger Stadium? I paid $1100 for two tickets on the top deck, just outside of first base. Which is actually below the going rate, since the scalper I have dealt with for several years got them directly from a season ticket holder and not from the open market.
I wanted Game 1 as well, but the cheapest I could get in about the same area was $1600. So I decided to spare our bank account and just go to Game 2.
Funny story: We have been using the same bank since we moved here, so they are used to me withdrawing large amounts of cash to pay for tickets. So when I went in on Friday to get $1100 in cash, the bank manager said "how did you get tickets to the World Series?"
I hate it when people know me that well. :laugh:

Baseball is an incurable addiction. Ask any Cubs fan.

Baseball is an incurable addiction. Ask any Cubs fan.Nah. I used to play it and not watch it. When I outgrew playing it I STILL didn't watch it. I sure as Hell wouldn't pay what you do for something that comes on TV. And save it. Been to plenty of games. Used to play in them in 3 sports. So there IS "something like it". It's called a recliner.

You better HOPE and PRAY Houston doesn't take the WS. You will NEVER, EVER, NEVER hear the end of it. I promise.:happy0203:
