World Series

So it's the end of October and it snowed four inches in Salt Lake City yesterday.  Must be time for the World Series.

This year I'm kind of excited.  The Texas Rangers have never been to a World Series in their 49 year history going back to 1961 when they were an American League expansion team known as the Washington Senators.  I saw the Senators play in 1962 when I was in Washington, D.C.  They lost to the Yankees.  From the National League we have the San Francisco Giants, who haven't won a World Series since they were the New York Giants playing in the Polo Grounds, in 1954.  Since I always go for the underdog, this is a tough choice.  Which team is more of an underdog?

In the end, I think I'm going with the Giants.  The Rangers have accomplished something already, just by getting to the World Series for the first time in franchise history.  The Giants haven't won in two generations, longer than the Rangers have been waiting to get there.  So, GO GIANTS!
