A Cubs Fan’s 2008 World Series Preview
October 22, 2008
(Tampa, FL) – Hello friends. Name’s Timothy King, and I’m a huge Chicago Cubs fan. I was asked by the good folks at The Brickyard to provide a preview for this year’s World Series, and after a great deal of calming myself, I agreed.
Yes, of course, I’m sad that my Cubbies didn’t make the show this year, but baseball goes on, and I can be an adult. And be professional. This isn’t about the Cubs. It’s about this year’s World Series. Ok. So here is an impartial look at the upcoming Fall Classic.
First things first. The teams. Well, from the American League, there’s the Tampa Bay Rays. A young, inexperienced, lucky, average talent level team. People keep talking about how impressive their story is, you know, making the show with all these young guys.
Yeah, real impressive. Suck huge balls since your inception, draft in the top 5 for over 10 years, and I’d say the last few years where they were terrible were far more impressive than this year. Having that much raw talent and still losing 90 games? That’s impressive.
And boy did they have to wait a long time to make the World Series. Lucky bastards. Oh, look at me, I’ve been in the league for like 10 freaking years and then boom, I’m in the show. Forget you, clown. I mean, whatever. I’m not bitter.
Then you got the Philadelphia Phillies. I don’t really know much about the Phillies, other than the fact that they don’t completely suck. They got lucky as hell with Cole Hamels, and they sure disposed of the Los Angeles Dodgers pretty easily. Thanks, Dodgers, by the way. Way to show up for the NLCS. Glad that you saved all your super ability for the NLDS and then completely sucked thereafter. Way to go. Whatever. It’s fine, it’s fine.
Another thing, is that I’m really glad that Scott Eyre is getting to play in the World Series for the Phillies, after being dumped by the Cubs. It’s really great that he figured out how to pitch again once he left the Cubs. Really great. Figured out how not to suck donkey dong. Good for him.
So anyway – ok, breathe, Tim – these two teams will square off starting tonight in the greatest, most exciting event in all of sports. And they totally deserve it. No really. I’m happy for all their fans, because they’re going to get to see something really special. And I hope they cherish it.
Oh, who will win? X’s and O’s? Am I really supposed to talk about that stuff? Oh.
Well I have no freaking clue. I can’t take it. Screw those bastards. I hope the stadium explodes. Like my heart has. God I hate them all. I got a two word preview for you: [Expletive deleted] YOU!
Thanks, Tim. That was very… informative. As a special treat for our readers, we were also able to locate a White Sox fan to preview the World Series from his perspective. Enjoy.
