Baseball is the big thing here. Nothing else comes close. Football and Hockey are a distant second and third. Its very engrained in the culture.

When something like this happens, everyone knows about it. People come in from all over because we have fans in Missouri, southern Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Tennessee, etc. The fan base is big because we're centrally located, and a lot of people have no team close by. Its definitely a bfd around here.

I'm wearing my gear to work tomorrow, to heck with it, everybody else is.

Yea what a game is right. This is what I love about baseball. Back and forth the whole night. And a major comback at the end of the 9th. It was crazy insane....Both teams had so much fire in them. Both wanting the win so badly!

I passed out in the middle of the 8th...thought the Rangers had it, but woke up and was WRONG! Can't wait to see what both teams have in store for us tonight. NRPS are in town tonight and I may have to miss the ending of the game to make the show...Hope i dont miss out on too much!
Dreams are lies...it's the dreaming that's real!!!!

hey who could forget Andre Dawson? Gary Carter? Tim Raines?! Raines said he developed his face first slide cause he didn't want to bust the coke vial in his back pocket. God love these guys, it's so Americana with a twist of Canadian bacon.

EXPOS WERE FUCKING AWESOME! Except for the French part. As a Canadian, I must say those Quebecois are some douchey type of peoples.

I'm a die hard Pirates fan. I've been dead since 1992. As far as the expos I went to a game at Park Jerry in the early 70's got my program signed by Rusty Staub amongst others. I'm so friggin old I remember when the Rangers were the Washington Senators. I also saw the Pirates play at Forbes Field..the precursor to 3 Rivers stadium... the one that was torn down 10 years ago........... "looks like the old man ..is gettin old"

You're not the only one, pal. My first Phillies games were at Connie Mack Stadium AKA Shibe Park.

As for right now, I wish we were talking about the Phils, but I've gotta admit this is a great Series.
