I've got to say, there have been more interesting World Series matchups in my lifetime.  

It's actually a really good matchup, but without the fans and the weird season, it's just not as hyped up.

I hate the Dodgers but I'm pulling for them in this one. At least they have fans that come to the games, and there's some guys on LA that deserve a ring.

LA fans get to the game in the third inning and leave in the seventh.  But yes, at least they exist.

There is not a baseball team I detest more than the Dodgers.  They are on Flyers-Bruins-Dolphins level for me.

And Tampa is boring, and their town just won something.

Yeah, but that's only because they're busy stabbing people in the parking lot!

Man, that new SoFi Stadium in LA is sensational.  I guess with a cost of $5 Billion+, it ought to be, but it is.

I think the outside is *****. Looks like a dystopian factory where Skynet builds slave transports.

The outside looks like a good place to stab the people deserving of it to me.

Anyone else watch F1? Netflix has a great docu-series on it that got me hooked, and now I'm waking up at 7am on weekends to watch a Grand Prix lol

You might like the movie "Rush", which is a pretty good movie, stars Chris Hemsworth and is based on a true story about 2 rival F1 drivers in the 1970s.

Love that movie. Nicki Lauda is an incredible story, recently passed away too.

Roman Grosjean (Haas F1 driver) crashed into the barrier yesterday on lap 1 of the grand prix, exploding the car in a fireball in two pieces; himself trapped in the fire for 20s. Grosjean lived with minor burns on his hands. Absolutely incredible that he's alive and just a wild scene to watch, we totally thought he was gone for when we saw it live.

 

 

Side note : Grosjean is an idiot. He routinely has idiotic crashes, and in this one he's trying to avoid the crash on his left so he cuts hard right on a straight-away for no reason really. This causes him to collide with another car and fly into the barrier, which also sucked because he blew through it. The only reason he still has a head and isn't decapitated is because F1 introduced a safety feature called a 'halo' which is a metal bar on the car surrounding the driver's head.
