Get your stats ready…
In a few more days, when the World Series ends and the 2005 season is officially over, I’m going to compile ALL my ball-snagging stats, so get ready for some numbers about this year, previous years, and my entire collection–plus various streaks, feats, records, averages and totals. When I post my big stats entry, feel free to share your own stats in the “comments” section. Hopefully, other people will do the same, and we’ll all discuss it in true geek fashion.
As for the Series, my original prediction was “Sox in seven.” But now, with a 2-0 lead, it looks like Ozzie and his boys are gonna wrap it up sooner than that. Of course, I don’t REALLY care who wins. All I’m thinking (and cursing) about is what it must’ve felt like for the fan who caught Podsednik’s walk-off homer.
Please tell me it wasn’t Shaun Dean.
