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.
