I’ve been watching the World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. This is weird for me, because I don’t even like baseball! I played all of my childhood, but sometime around 9th grade the magic was gone. I think it was my coach at a private school in Miami that turned me off to the sport altogether. Not that I was the next Aaron Judge or anything, but it just wasn’t fun that year.
Enough about me though! I did happen to catch the final game of the Yankees vs. Astros, too, and the 9th inning was crazy. A homerun by NY to tie it up and go to the bottom of the 9th. Then Altuve hits a homerun to win it for the Astros. Crazy stuff.
Usually baseball is so boring to watch, right? Just admit that’s true and we can move on. In fact, the game before Altuve’s homerun, I couldn’t make it to the 9th… and I’m on central time so it was only about 1030pm and I was out like a light! With all the pitching changes and commercials and foul ball hits.
So with all that said, I’ll admit the past 2 games, at least for the first innings, have been interested and fun to watch. But will Houston battle back to have a chance? It looks like the Nationals aren’t playing around… they want this championship and they look good.
What’s been boring or exciting to you during this playoff and championship series?
