Not sure if anyone else noticed this, but it appears that Major League Baseball is intent on calling the World Series the "Fall Classic". I know that is a name for it, but I never remembered it being quite like this. All the reporters were calling it the Fall Classic after the clinching game in LA, the cable guide refers to it as the Fall Classic, the official ticket holders they were handing out all said Fall Classic, and a whole host of other instances that I don't really need to catalog.

Basically this sucks. Obviously MLB is trying to distinguish between the upcoming World Baseball Classic and the World Series. They want the World Baseball Classic to take off, and having another "World" series is in the way.

Something has to be done about this, as I don't think I'm alone thinking Fall Classic sounds lame. I want my DVD, shirts, etc. to read 2005 World Series Champions, not some lame marketing loser's idea.

so they are going to turn that whole International Spring Training crap into the "World Series"??? Ugh. Olympics part deux.

Yeah, those "Fall Classic" patches on the hats and jerseys and that huge "Fall Classic" painted in foul territory really suck, too. :rolleyes:

Even up 2-0 in the WORLD ****ING SERIES, there's something.

My slice of Connie's cheese pizza last night had too much sauce on it, and some of it got on my thumb.

My coconut chicken didn't turn out so well last night because it was rushed.

I've always been a fan of Rush. "Spirit of Radio" is probably my favorite tune by them.

The hanger in my dry cleaning today faced to the right side of the shirt instead of to the left.

Speaking of radio, mine has an annoying buzz to it. These damn clouds in the sky are messing up my reception!

My sister picked me up a polish w/ onions and mustard at the game yesterday, BUT NO NAPKINS. The mustard got everywhere and ruined the whole 7th, 8th, and 9th inning for me.

I drank too much beer last night and my brain still hurts. I fell asleep half on the couch and half on the floor and my left arm has gone numb! :(:

And darn it, I have to go buy more beer.
This Fall Classic is simply costing me too much pain and money!
It's much easier and cheaper when we are 10 games out by September.

Speaking of clouds, I really hate the misty, undefined ones. I like fluffy clouds. Last night at Game 2 of the World Se.... er... Fall Classic, there was nothing buy crappy clouds. It ruined my night.

I think you may be onto something.

I got soaked while tailgating. I got home from the game at midnight, but couldn't fall asleep until after 1AM. Limo picked me up at 5:30AM. Flight to DC was bumpy, so I couldn't sleep. My voice is still hoarse, and I couldn't assert myself on this afternoon's conference call. My life is hell.

That's nothing to complain about; you can still sell it to the blind kid.
