When do we find out who they'll be playing?

I'm not sure. I guess Keith and the guys will tell us what's going on with that.

Game six between Detroit and Boston tonight, whoever wins the best of seven will play the Cards.

Hmmm... Big Cardinals fan here. Half the payroll of the Dodgers and they still won. I actually wished the game would have been more competitive, you want to beat a team at their best and not at their worst. In the end the Cardinals played better and were better managed.

That comment was a reference to earlier comments re the fans who were at the game and the ones who were tweeting Keith obnoxiously accusing him of pro-Dodgers bias. Keith observed they acted worse when they won, and you know he likes people to be gracious when they're winning. So that explains what I meant when I said 9-to-0, there'd be no living with them now.

I don't attribute any of the fans' attitude to the players, btw. They are good ambassadors for St. Louis.

I get it -- so it may be decided tonight, unless there's a tie. Then there will be a game 7. Thanks!

Now I need to find out how the World Series itself works -- whether they play on successive days, or whether they get days off in between.

It works the same way that the playoffs did--the first two games in one city, then a travel day, then three games (if they need that many) in the other city. If they have to go beyond five games, there's another travel day, then back to the first city for the remaining one or two.

Keith is now back home and he has one thing to say about the past 3 wks --
So you know what's nice? Watching a playoff game and not having to calculate how soon you'll be doing the post game. #OtherWayIsNiceToo

Tweeted to Keith about an hour ago:
Great, now can't so much as see Saltalamacchia on screen without mentally hearing 'DON'T SELL YOUR HAIR TO A WIG SHOP'. Thx Keith Olbermann.

:lol:

I love some of the responses, especially to the last tweet! :lol:

Wonder if Fox Sports 1 is doing so bad that they're trying to generate interest by putting the game on Faux News instead. Maybe trying to win over some of Keith's conservative viewers? :-k

I thought it must have to do with the WS game running over, but I haven't checked.
