I'm Willing to do Whatever it Takes.

Tonight, I decided that sporting events such as the World Series were meaningless. Especially ones that include the Yankees.

So I decided not to watch any of the game and instead put on "Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory" and didn't think twice about the game.

OK. I lied.

I did it out of desperation. Somewhere in the back of my demented mind I figured that MAYBE, if I didn't watch the game and instead watched some mindless sitcoms instead that somehow, someway the mojo would change.

And lo and behold it did. It's currently 6-2 Phillies (I never said I wouldn't flip back and forth during commercials. For God's sake, all I've watched is baseball for the last 6 months. You can't expect me to quit cold Turkey.)

I'm currently scouring the DirecTV guide for what is coming on Wednesday night. And I'd like to punch the creators of "LOST" and ABC square in the marbles for not scheduling any new shows on Wednesday until next year.

Dinks.

Maybe it worked. 8-6 Phils.

Tex, there is but by the time I leave work it's half over. You, on the other hand could make it. I'm just saying. ;)

Matty, whatever I can do to help. Go Phillies!

It was Dancing with the Stars for us, Ted, but same idea. I couldn't watch. Ok, maybe just during commercials to see the score. But I couldn't watch even if the Phillies were up 10-0, I was afraid the Skanks would come back to win 11-10. No lead is big enough when it comes to beating the Skanks.

I'll be doing the same Wednesday, and possibly Thursday. I just can't bear to watch more than a minute at a time of these games with the Skanks and their champagne on ice.

On Wednesdays I like "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Gary Unmarried" with Jay Mohr. I'm not sure I can watch the next WS game.

Last night was the first one I didn't keeo on the whole game, Redbeard. And it seemed like everytime I flipped over they had scored again. And thanks for the suggestions, Chrissy!

You HAVE to watch the game LIVE!

Tex, I didn't watch all the game and the Phillies won. I'm sticking with what works. And what did you say now?
