I do love me some baseball. Even when I don't follow or much care about any of the teams playing in the postseason, I watch some of the games then pick my favorites based on absolutely absurd criteria such as
1. Are they NOT the Yankees. - then possibly my favorite
2. Did they win the World Series recently? - then NOT my favorite this year, though I may have liked them previously. I think this is due to my innate Cubfanness which requires I root for the underdog in all situations.
3. Is one of their players one of the steroid-hyped-mean-aggressive-types? If so then probably NOT my favorite team. Fortunately this year we are not seeing quite so much of that. Whew.
4. In the final series, the so-called World Series even though it includes only one team from a country other than the US, I tend to root for the National League team. I think that's because I am more likely to know the players, because I don't like the DH, and also in most years you can see item #1 on the list.
Naps are an important part of my regular season game watching routine. The postseason games, however, are on so late that I often just go to bed while they are still on. I miss that experience of waking up in the 8th inning and seeing the end of the game. Since I don't have to get up early tomorrow, I might stay up to see the end of what I hope will be the Yankees final game this year.
