Re: I'm going to the World Series
WTG, GIK! I actually went to the last World Series DET played in. It was such a weird deal cause the Cubs were involved and if they won the NLCS, the series would start in DET but if SD won - which wasn't very likely since they were down 0-2 - the Series would start in SD. All this was cause Wrigley didn't have lights installed yet. So, my dad and I had tickets all set for DET and the Pads came back and won. He had to change the reservations and tickets and he got the tickets from a broker in SD. He told me, and I don't know if he was just pulling my leg, that the seats - which were in front of a skybox - belonged to some organized crime figure who was just arrested or jailed. We got there real early and I met a vendor who was about my age and he told me if I could collect empty beer cups, preferably ones that hadn't been drank out of, he'd buy me a beer. So I did it and he was true to his word and bought me a cold one. I was rooting for DET cause of Sparky but it was difficult not to get caught up in the SD excitement. They had little American flags at every seat like they do for Opening Day here. I guess that was for Captain America, Steve Garvey. They won that first game and, boy, they thought they were on their way. DET had something to say about that, though.
