More sports-related rambling. I won't be offended if you're a non-fan and skip this one.
I'm cheering on the Diamondbacks in the World Series. I think that Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson are two very good pitchers, and they complement each other well as a one-two punch. There's another reason: their opponents. Fuck the Yankees.
I've been an anti-fan of the New York Yankees for a long time now, and I've rooted for everyone they've played against in the postseason. As you've noticed, I've been very disappointed the last few years. The D-Backs, currently ahead two games to none, have a very good chance of changing that.
And tonight the Diamondbacks fans gave me another reason. As Johnson batted in the bottom of the eighth inning, meaning he would pitch the ninth to try for a complete game, some fans in the outfield stands held up a sign: "You Can't Yank R Johnson!"
They're sickos and I love 'em for it :)
