Um, no... that's not my prediction. I don't know where to start in predicting this series. That's Jimmy Rollins prediciton. As he stated on the Jay Leno show last night.
You can read it here...
Rollins is good at making predictions though. He called the Muts out last year, the year before, and this year. He also stated that the Phils would play the Yankees in this years WS. So some credit has got to be given to this statement. :)
Realistically however, I think the Yankees will be a little bit tougher than the Dodgers. Texiera has been a huge reason that the Yankees did so well this season. His defense has won them at least 10 of the 103 they did. And stopped a game 7 against the Angels in my opinion. With 2 on and no outs he dove and made an unassisted out off of the first base bag that was nothing short of spectacular.
The post also put up another cover story that had a picture of Shane Victorino wearing a skirt and calling the Phillies the Frillies. Then doing a side by side comparison on several different points, such as Mascots, food, etc.
Here are a few...
Records: Phils - 10,000 losses NY - 26 World Championships (*sigh)
Mascot: The Phanatic NY - Kate Hudson (I don't know which one is crazier)
Best Sandwhich: Phils - Cheesesteak NY - Derek Jeter and a couple of models (Jeter wins!)
Ball Parks: Old stadium had a jail for idiot fans NY - New stadium has a steakhouse and the greatest fans on earth - HAHAHAHAHAHA Greatest FAIR WEATHER FANS on earth maybe.
Best quote - "Yo Adrian" NY - "Give me your tired, your poor, and I'll give you the city with the most hate crime. PHILLY WIN
Ok I made that last one up, but it's close. I bet!
Articles like this come out all the time denegrating the visiting teams city. Most take it personally. We here in Philly laugh it off and see it as pure comedy (as it is intended.)
All kidding aside, this World Series will be the best one in a long time. These two teams will put on a show that even the most jaded fan (Bam, I'm looking at you), should be able to enjoy. Forget the strike, forget steroids, these two teams will please. That I have no doubt about.
So get your pop corn ready Terrel.... and enjoy the ride. I thought about live blogging game 1, but I will be too entrenched watching the game and going crazy with every pitch.
