It doesn't get any better than this


It doesn't get any better than this

Two classic rivals , the Dodgers and Giants. Game 5 for all the marbles. And now it's going into the 9th tied 1-1. This is where legends are made. I have no rooting favorite for either team just love the drama of the situation. only thing missing is if Vin Scully could be calling the game.

Re: It doesn't get any better than this

Only thing missing was a bad call to end it. Sad it ended that way, great game otherwise.

i agree , he was safe , kinda ruins it

Re: It doesn't get any better than this

Horrible way to end the game on a terrible call on a check swing.
However, can't say Giants would have won seeing that Flores is not a great hitter and would have been down 1-2 in the count and facing Scherzer. BUT.... Give the hitter a chance! The 1st base ump didn't do it and the game ends on a sour note. Disappointing.

Fans are left with watching the cheaters (Astros), the current most annoying fan base (Red Sox), the team that with the highest payroll (Dodgers) and the team without their most exciting player (Acuna and the Braves). I am rooting for the underdogs. GO BRAVES!

This is all I have to say about the check swing call:

Come what may, this will be a new low rating for a World Series & once again shows that MLB needs RoboUmp.

Re: Re: It doesn't get any better than

This post season has been another great example for all the folks who love to complain when their #1 seed doesn't win the world series on PC. :)

Re: It doesn't get any better than

So let me see if I've got this right, if it ends up being a Dodgers revenge/rematch against either the Redsox or Astros, it will have low ratings? I want some of that stuff you're smoking !!

The final 4 is great. That is coming from a Royals fan who's #2 is the Rays.
I disdain the Dodgers, Lakers, Canadiens, and Cowboys. All my mortal enemies. But it is still a great watch when they are involved.
I personally am rooting for the Braves. Only because MLB dropped the ball big time using politics to take All-Star game away from Atlanta.
#1 they hurt all small businesses in the Atlanta area. Including African American businesses. Atlanta is mostly a democratic city. Now I don't care what anyone's politics are. Its America. We're allowed to differ on opinions without hating.
Also they were to honor Hank Aaron. His family was supposed to be there for the celebration. MLB made a knee "jerk" decision without thinking it all the way through.
Because they believe a voting law passed by the state of Georgia, which went to Biden, as "racist", they punished the fine people of Atlanta.
Go Braves. It would be great to see the National League trophy and W.S. Trophy in Atlanta.

Re: It doesn't get any better than

Would like to see Dodgers - Astros rematch so LA can beat the pants off Hou.

Re: It doesn't get any better than

No, ATL-HOU is what I meant!
And I only smoke the best, so you're welcome!

Re: Re: It doesn't get any better than

I won't be watching......

Re: It doesn't get any better than

LOL.

Re: It doesn't get any better than

Seems hardly anyone is. And with NFL & college football this weekend, probably gonna be a new low for ratings.
