It’s 1968 all over again: Tigers vs. Cardinals in the World Series

Sadly for some of my readers, it won’t be a Mets-Tigers World Series. The Cardinals pulled it out in game seven in a classic fashion, winning the game 3-1.

FOX isn’t going to like an all-Midwest World Series. You could almost hear the disappointment that there wouldn’t be a big market team like the Mets in the Series this year to generate better ratings.

But I love it and can hardly wait. Unlike fellow SBer Afarensis, I’m hoping the end result is a repeat of 1968. But without the Tigers falling behind three games to one before coming back. I don’t know if I could take that sort of suspense any more at my age.

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery.
