Quick Take

But first, a little peek behind the scenes here:
Most of these entries are written weeks or months in advance, by several different collaborators and edited a few days before being posted. Thus, the highly polished appearance and the general lack of current events that you've come to know and love. It's an expensive and time-consuming process, but you're worth it. (Well, not you *pointing* or you *pointing again* but in general most of you are merely adequate.)

However, I thought I'd break from convention and post a quick take on the professional sports disaster that recently took place or, The Astros Debacle, as it's come to be known. It seems that in professional baseball there is a championship series at the end of the season to determine which team is superior to all others. For the first time in the history of the sport, the Houston team (hence the Astros part of the Astros Debacle, as it's come to be known) was chosen to participate in this contest. At first glance, this sounds like one of those silly teen movies where the captain of the football team invites the homely girl to the prom and we all learn a lesson about tolerance and inner beauty. (If you haven't seen that movie, don't panic, they'll make another one next summer.) But after a 4-game sweep, the World Series folks have got to be pretty red-faced about the whole thing, their friends wondering aloud why they didn't ask Atlanta instead. (Sure, Atlanta's kind of a skank, but at least we know she puts out.) I predict that next year it goes to a system kind of like the old college bowl games where they get to invite the teams based on popularity. It's better for ticket sales anyway and that's what's really important.

Now that's the best take on the World Series I've seen all week.

Mimi: Atlanta 'flowered' early and really enjoys all the attention.

KCTL: Making fun of the Astros kinda takes the sting off the Royals, eh?

Wait a minute! We won the league pennant, AND we were in the World Series. Pretty good, I say.

Par for the course for the Astros!

The best come back i heard was when the White Sox fans were chanting Houston sucks. The announcer turned around and goes, "Hey Chicago, have a nice winter."

1L: So you want me to be proud of Houston? I'm so conflicted.

Bright-one: I know you're going to rush right out and buy season-tickets for next year.

Sass: Meanwhile we're suffering through mid- to upper-40s. BRR!
