This is exactly how I felt, too. Couldn't muster myself to watch any postseason baseball really, except for maybe an inning here and there, maybe have a game on in the background, and just watch the highlights in the morning.
Probably also fuels the prominance of the Super Bowl over the World Series, too. The baseball season is so long that by the end, even the most diehard fans are ready for a break, except for say the teams actually in the World Series. Football, the maximum number of games your team can possibly play is 20. There's still a desire for football, even after your team is out.
