I was talking to someone recently about the best World Series we’ve seen, and I said 2001 even though the Yankees lost. Frankly, the Yankees had no business winning that series — they were outscored 37-14 (!) in the seven games — yet they had a lead with two outs to go in Game Seven. It took two dramatic game-tying homers (like the one you see above) to make that series interesting and they’re part of the reason why it was so exciting. That series was insane. Took bad the outcome couldn’t be different.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The Red Sox and Cardinals are playing Game Two of this year’s World Series at 8pm on FOX (John Lackey vs. Michael Wacha), and the Thursday NFL Game is the Panthers at the Buccaneers. Yuck. The Devils and Rangers are both playing as well. Talk about any of those games and more. Go nuts.
