"Zombie Mode" failed to catch on this season. Or maybe it caught on too well.
It was 4-3 for what seemed like the entire game last night and the Brewers forgot that they were the three (3). I have no specific reason to begrudge the Rangers' fans a World Series berth. And, on the real, St. Louis fans have never done anything to offend my personal honor of that of my family. But there are reasons beyond general distaste for the Cardinals to hope for a Tigers-Brewers Series. Comrade KevinMitchellisBatman spelled out the appeal of an "(Intestinal Casing/Ferry/I-94/Rustbelt/Ditka Sucks) Series" rather well last night:
That means I can grow a mustache, eat brats, drink copious amounts of beers, and make fun of Chicago regardless of which team I root for. It’s like my own little version of heaven.
It's a distinctly remote possibility at this point, but this is the season of remote possibilities.
