mid-autumn sports update
Baseball: The slowest (?) of all sports finally ended its season last week with the San Francisco Giants beating the Kansas City Royals in the World Series. Most people seemed to be rooting for the Royals, since its been eons since they've been in the Series and the Giants have won 3 of the last 5. It went down to the wire, the 7th game, in Kansas City, and the Giants pulled out a win. Royals fans are traumatized too, when they should be happy that they even made it that far -- way farther than my favorite teams, the Phillies and the Twins.
Football: It's been a weird season so far. No team seems to be very consistent. There are upsets and there are blowouts. It could end up anywhere. At least, my team, the Philadelphia Eagles are 6-2.
Hockey: All I know is that the Minnesota Wild are doing pretty well. Local Wild fans seems happy but cautious. Go, Wild!
