I can't say the same thing. I sympathize with Joe Boyd, the lead character in "Damn Yankees," who's willing to sell his soul to see New York lose. I got a kick reading what John Grisham, the author of "Calico Joe," said about how much he hates the Yankees.

They're a strong organization -- got to give them that. But I've seen the White Sox get pushed to the back of the line by that team for so many years that I can't bring myself to appreciate what they do.

Having said that, I'm also not crazy about Detroit, for obvious reasons. So if the Manhattan Millionaires make it through the ALCS, I will then become an rabid National League fan.
