Baseball in October

Just a tiny post today, but for all you baseball lovers out there (like me): has this been an exciting ALCS (American League Championship Series) to watch or what?

Yankees and Angels. Two extra-inning games, one in the rain (I missed the 11-inning Angels win, due to misreading the schedule (sigh).) Game 6 coming up on Saturday, back at Yankee stadium. Yankees up 3-2, momentum with the underdog Angels, history on the Yankees side... my, oh my, oh my!

(Quickie explanation for those who need to know: the championship series has to be won by 4 games. The location is split 2-3-2. First two games were in the Bronx, and the following third in Anaheim. Thus the Angels need 2 games to win and the Yankees 1. The Angels were down 3-1 before yesterday.)

Can this year's World Series beat these thrills?

(As another footnote, there are many ways to watch this postseason, including the ALCS, even a reasonable ($10) Post-Season TV on a laptop...)

October baseball: the weather is all wrong, but the competition can be riveting at its best.
