World Series
 
So it's the Yankees versus the Phillies in the WS.

Anyone interested or are the majority of posters here Pirates fans and because of recent ownership have come to loathe baseball? :chuckle:

I'm mostly hoping for a seven game series just to make it more interesting and intense. But I am rooting for the Yankees to win due to the fact that I'm a huge Pens fan and can't root for anything Philly because of it.

Who will the other baseball fans here be rooting for?

Ok, Nadrog not feeling this match-up. :chuckle:

Anyone besides me that will be watching and following the outcome? Although I'll probably be irritated when there's no SNF due to conflict with viewership for the WS.

Football and Pens trump baseball anyday.

Amen to that. And I might add Nascar, college football, march madness, Winter Olympics ect. Sorry, I'm just so down on baseball because of the Pirates. The Pirates and baseball were my first sport as a kid, but thanks to the Steinbrenners and their ilk (including the Nuttings), I have a hard time getting excited.

That said, it is sports and I will root for the anybody but Yankees team.

I hate the Yankees. Not a fan of the Phils either but I like Cliff Lee and Charlie Manuel.

that would be me. recent ownership???

i might take actual rooting interest if pittsburgh still had a MLB team like before '93 when they transferred to the minors.

other than that, i root against the yankees and have always pulled for the philly teams ever since i was five. it was pittsburgh first and pennsylvania second since i was a kid.

i hope the phillys win in 4, but this is probably the year g. steinbrenner proves you can only hold good money down for so long.

he's probably paid out a billion dollars to get this next crown, so i guess he deserves and has "earned" it.

Not really big on baseball in general, but most of my friends are Yankees fans so I guess I'll be pulling for them. My friends would kill me if I didn't. :chuckle:

I am the one guy not living in NY rooting for the Yanks. Hate the phillies and especially Pedro. I used to play and love baseball, now I only watch the games in person when I see the Giants or on tv during playoffs. I am a Giants fan but love the Yankee tradition with all the great players.

My apologies Jordan. :wink02:

Tony, current instead of recent should have been the more appropriate word I used to describe the Pirates' ownership. I have a huge love for the Steelers and Penguins, and would love to see the Pirates succeed because of how I can relate to all the fans and people within the city and beyond in the two sports. But I've never stepped foot in the state of Pennsylvania, so I just can't feel or root for Philly.

The evil empire that is the Yankees are in. It's definitely bought, I agree, but I still can't get myself to root for Philly.
