Mystery Date: The 2009 World Series/Live Game Thread

 We're 24 hours into the bidding and we already have an outstanding TWO bids on LOHO's postseason loyalties. And some of you thought this wouldn't work!

For those of you high rollers will $11.00 laying around (the current high bid is $10.50), make sure to go to Ebay and bid on LOHO now. High bidder gets to pick the team we root for in the postseason.

For the rest of you that can't afford $11.00, I'll say this: being disnefranchised sucks, doesn't it? Now you know how if feels to be Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, or the mom from 'Mary Poppins. '

America doesn't believe in disenfranchisement. Or racism. Or, apparently, evolution. But I digress.

We here at LOHO strive to include all Cubs fans in our quirky little contests. That said, this is your chance to make your voice heard. Perhaps the winning bidder is even reading and will take pity on your plight.

Who do you want to cheer for the in postseason?

So far, the teams that have clinched postseason appearances area as follows:

 

  • Yankees (AL East)
  • Red Sox (AL Wild Card)
  • Angles of Anaheim off Route 95 near Denny's (AL West)
  • Phillies (NL East)
  • Dodgers (NL West)
  • Cardinals (NL Central)

That leaves only the AL Central and the NL Wild Card left to be determined. It looks like those two teams will be the Tigers and the Rockies (ODGJM!). With that in mind, who would you prefer to cheer for in the postseason?

(Vote on the next page) 

Despite the tarp being on the field for most of the day, the Cubs are saying that this one will start on time. Tonight we are lucky enough to get to see Spellcheck (1-3, 7.53) one more time this season (sarcasm font off). He'll face Paul Maholm (8-9, 4.44).

Aramis is in the lineup tonight, but DLee was scratched for "personal reasons."

Theriot, Taguchi(lf), Aramis, Fox (1b) Baker, REEDZ (rf), Soto, Fuld (cf), Spellcheck.

Game time is 7:05 on CSN.

I don't see it possible to root for a team with HWSNBN on it.

Just saying.

So as an unemployed person living an hour from Chicago, I should drive as fast as I can to get a free candy bar. Kewl.

for the price of 15 minutes at a meter I'm pretty sure you can buy the Mars factory

Currently, "living an hour from Chicago" means it will take you seven hours to get to Chicago.

Traffic is brutal as hell.

Guys, clearly we cannot and will not root for the cardinals.

J Pep said:

Agreed. I say the Yankees. I think it's about time we started acting like a large market program and go out and buy whatever we need.

Tarp still on the field. Waiting to see if they play before I put up a game thread.

If I happen to flip past any postseason baseball during NFL/NHL commercials, then I will be pulling for a Tigers/Rockies series... just so FOX can suck it.

My God, there are some freaks on Twitter.

I just keep getting girls with crotches or asses as their user pics, are following several thousand people, but have no followers or tweets.

God, what a miserable night to be at Wrigley. I'm freezing just looking at them!

Maim said:

I can't watch anything; my DVR is hard at work recording three things, because apparently everything I want to ever watch all comes on on the same night.

JulieDiCaro said:

i'm watching Joseph Fiennes. . . I mean "Flashforward."

I really like "Mercy" so far. It's not all drama; it's surprisingly funny as well.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

what's that?

baturkey said:

It's about a nurse working at a hospital in Jersey after serving a tour in Iraq.

JulieDiCaro said:

Yes, and I'm reading lady books now too. Thanks to Julie.

Maim said:

I'm gonna have to watch it on Hulu. I really liked the first one.

JulieDiCaro said:

Spellcheck apparently got a hit. And almost got thrown out at first from RF. Ha!

JulieDiCaro said:

Tarp back on. Coming down like crazy out there in the west. Going to bed.

Night night.
