Welcome to Notes from a Far-Flung Correspondent, which features the weekly interests and musings of Bossy’s Son, who is currently enjoying his junior year at Columbia University in the City of New York.
This week: Major League Baseball Playoffs.
Let me put this as simply and as directly as I can.
Four home teams.
One World Series championship on the line.

GOOOOO GIANTS!!!! Welcome to SF Phillies and be prepared to leave your heart and more at the city by the bay!

Hoping for the Phillies, but after my Tigers, my favorite team is whoever is playing the Yankers.

Yankees rock !!!
This reminds me of the World Cup while living in Queens NY. No matter who was playing there was a party to go to on the block .

Dear Matt – haven’t spoke to you since we last met at Blogher – your Mom intro’d you to my sister and I – I’m with the Philly’s too – Giants – nah – Rangers – well let’s just say Texas is the Lone Dumb state – Yankees – NEVER EVER NEVER – I’m a Boston gal – Red Sox all the way – but since they sucked this year – I’m with you and the Phillys!

Fierce rivalries indeed — both in and out of the pool 🙂

I forsee much betting, jibing and imbibing in the future of these four friends.
Reeb saysOctober 18, 2010 at 4:08 pm
Suspenseful. Will the friendship survive?
Bellacantare saysOctober 18, 2010 at 4:35 pm
Goooo Giants! Fear the Beard.
The Domestic Goddess saysOctober 18, 2010 at 9:42 pm
Bridget, I gotta tell you, if you are with us, it’s the PHILLIES. Not Phillys. C’mon. If you’re gonna cheer for us you gotta misspell stuff like a true Phillies fan.
Cupcake Murphy saysOctober 18, 2010 at 11:26 pm
May I submit, dear sir, not ’nuff?
Caroline saysOctober 19, 2010 at 3:31 am
Oh HELL yeah! I don’t even LIKE baseball, much, but that sounds like the tour to end all tours. You ought to gather a Bossy Posse in each city, to drink pricy beers and eat pricy hot dogs in the stands and have some big ole fun, Bossy’s-son style! aloha from Caroline!
Philly saysOctober 19, 2010 at 7:54 am
Fightin Phils, all the way!
TDO saysOctober 19, 2010 at 10:40 pm
3/4 chance you’ll have to deal with a cocky bastard for a few months post series… 1/4 chance you’ll be said cocky bastard.
Dobes saysOctober 20, 2010 at 4:58 am
GO YANKS! Never heard of the Giants.

Wendy saysOctober 25, 2010 at 9:14 am
