The playoffs are here! October baseball! Rally caps, angry managers, champagne, ever so slightly cooler weather! That crazy adrenaline rush with the crack of the bat!
Wait…the Mets aren’t playing again until Spring? Well &@$%!!!
But just because our team is caput for the season, doesn’t mean we have to ignore all the exciting baseball being played. I know from personal experience that it can be brutally difficult to choose what team to root for in the playoffs, if I can’t choose the Mets. I’m sure you’ve all felt the same pain and frustration, so the good folks at Real Dirty have compiled our own list of who to root for and who to hiss at based on the individual votes of all 56* Real Dirty authors. (*sarcasm)
The list begins with our favorite playoff team, and concludes with a team that should spend all of eternity shackled in the darkest depths of hell, never again to see daylight..never again to hug their loved ones..to kiss their children. A team that embodies all that is unholy and corrupt in this depraved society of ours. A team created directly from the nether-regions of Satan himself; left with a deep stain of the devil’s red. Oh…wow…got caught up with myself. Sorry about that…here’s the list:
6. Red Sox
My top two teams were the Rockies and Twins, so I’ll stick with them. However, if you’ve had a hard time deciding whom to root for, Real Dirty likes the Angels. The Yankees and Phillies had a rough battle for most unliked team…though you may be surprised to know that one author voted the Yankees his favorite playoff team, and one voted the Phillies his second favorite! I have to be honest though, if it’s Yanks v. Phils in the World Series…I’m an all out Yankees fan for a week.
Who are you cheering for or against this October?
