How 'Bout Them Astros!

Post by enigma57 » Mon Oct 30, 2017 2:43 am

Just watched game 5 of the World Series. 2 great teams, both with great pitching, great batting and great fielding. And no one showing disrespect for America. Can't wait for the next game! Go Astros!

Best regards,

Harry

P.S. >>> My wife really followed (now past tense) the Texans football team. And we both applaud JJ Watt and other individuals on the team for their being not only great players but great human beings all 'round. However, after the majority of the team 'took a knee' at Sunday's game......

...... Cheryl has now joined me in no longer having anything to do with anything the NFL is involved in. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Protesting a lie...... Something that really doesn't exist if you do the research and look at the stats...... By showing disrespect towards America...... Something which has nothing to do with the lie they are 'protesting'. And to add insult to injury...... Not understanding that America is we, the American people. So they are showing disrespect to each and every American citizen...... Including you and me and yes...... Themselves as well...... Adios, NFL! Don't let the door hit ya in the arse on the way out.

I watched that game up until LA gave up that 3 run homer in the 5th to tie the game at 7?? Good thing cuz they lost anyway, but, had to be a pretty good game though as it wasn't over until 1:15am this AM making it the second longest WS game in history.

Was really surprised and disappointed to see Kershaw give up 4 and leave two walks on base when he went out. Looked like he wasn't on "his game" last night for some reason.

Ennywho, being down 3 games to 2 it's do or die for LA tonight.

And I'm with ya on the f*** the NFL attitude. Haven't watched any of them since the end of the first half of the first Denver game of this season.

Looking forward to the next game. 2 great teams, evenly matched, each doing their level best. I'll leave out the Dodger pitcher Jansen who purposely hit one of the Astros batters (McCann) in the 10th inning. Jansen is a better skilled pitcher than that. It was intentional. No doubt in my mind.

Best regards,

Harry

I don't know whether Jansen hit McCann on purpose or not. Putting anyone on base in the bottom of the 10th isn't smart. Hitting batters is part of the game though. I was told to hit certain batters, at certain times as early as Jr High.

I've always hated the Dodgers (and Yankees). The Dodgers should win, they have the highest payroll in MLB. Part of me thinks MLB should have a (real) salary cap, but part of me says it's free enterprise. I've been a Braves fan all my life. I used to listen to them play on a transistor radio when I was a kid (they struggled to win a game then). Later, when the Braves had a winning team they had one of the bigger payrolls.


According to what I've read there was one player (catcher for the A's) who didn't stand for the Anthem. He was recently arrested. ~30% of MLB players are from other countries. I suspect they see how good EVERYONE has it here in the US, and what opportunities are there for EVERYONE.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

There is a large problem with the baseball mind trust ... the World Series which is supposed to be their CLASSIC BEST is so late night in the east that hardly anybody saw those great games; certainly not the kids who could be their future.

Let's see if football will put the Super Bowl on so the ending is around 1:00 o'clock in the morning.

Who's going to watch it? By then, there may not be any fans left! :wink:
