Praise the Rays

Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Rays, American League Champs and World Series bound!!

I’m just feeling groovy this morning after watching the Tampa Bay Rays hold off the BoSox to earn a trip to the World Series in a worst-to-first season.

I’ve kept an eye on this talented bunch for a couple of seasons, using several of their players on my fantasy baseball team. Upton, Longoria, Garza, Price. Those are

names you’ll be hearing about for several years to come.

They’ve got a forward thinking manager who looks pretty cool with those glasses and that silver fauxhawk.

The Phillies won’t be an easy team for them to roll through, but the Rays do have homefield advantage and some fans showing up to make an impact (More COWBELL!!).

The boys from the City of Brotherly Love do have the overall edge in experience, but I’m not counting out the Rays.

And while we’re talking baseball, let’s give a shout out to the curse of the Billy Goat and 100 years of Cubs futility! Hip Hip Hooray to the losers in Wrigley. No Bartman was needed to down the lovable losers, just some Dodger blue and Manny being Manny.

Hey, I’m a Cardinals fan. I’ve got to throw a jab when I get a chance.
