World Series Smack

Tonight bellyscratcher and I join up to discuss the finer points of game four of the World Series that might just see the Chicago White Sox sweep the Houston Astros.

We saw the Astros play all season, so it shouldn't be too much of a surprise to learn that they're not the best team in the land, but swept? In the World Series? I mean, when was the last time that happened?

    Holy shit, Uribe.

  2. Red Hot Mama says:

    Well, there you go. After that catch in fowl territory, that last out seems anticlimactic.

    Who’s turn is it next year? Cubs?

  3. What a play to end it.


    So this is what it feels like to watch a sweep and not care. I like it.

    Congratulations to the White Sox. The (2nd) best team in the game won. Not a stupid Wild Card.

  4. Red Hot Mama says:

    But who gets the car???

  5. Good question.

    Think how sad Cub fans must be.

  6. Shoeless Joe can rest easy. Very nice.

  7. Red Hot Mama says:

    You know, there are crates full of "Astros 2006 World Championship" hats and shirts that will never see the light of day. Maybe we’ll run across some of them in a Big Lots some day.

  8. Maybe I can find a "Cardinals 2004 World Champions" shirt. 🙁

  9. Dye wins the car? Should be Crede.

  10. Red Hot Mama says:

    Oh yeah, I meant 2005. Dumb typo.

    Chevy SSR. w00t!

  11. Red Hot Mama says:

    "Thank you, Mr. Chevy. Now I’m going to go drink my weight in champagne and drive that cheap-ass car around."

  12. You forgot: "On the outfield of this shithole of a stadium."

  13. Thanks for staying up with me, darlin’. I’ll see you next spring. Actually, hopefully, sooner. Stop by once in a while, and I’ll do the same. When the blockbuster trade between our teams goes down, we’ll have lots to talk about. Not least of which is relative hotness.

  14. Red Hot Mama says:

    Woo, it *is* late. Alarm goes off in less than six hours. Ugh.

    I’ll be around; I don’t think I could stop if I wanted to. It’s been great fun. I look back at our first smack talk and all 12 barbs we traded and think, if nothing else, WE have grown this season.

    Next year ought to be good.

  15. You best be thinkin’ of smack all Spring Training. I know I will.
