Last March I wrote a blog entitled “2011 Postseason Predictions” and I’m here to say with all my opinions and wisdom in the world of baseball , I was able to correctly predict two teams, one from the National League and one from the American League. That’s 25% folks, I say as I’m looking for those wet noodles and a carton of eggs to slather around my face.
I mean, who knew? The only two teams that I predicted to win that actually won were the Detroit Tigers and the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies, of course, were a no-brainer, but I was very proud to stick my neck out in prediction of the Tigers. So be it.
If you were lucky enough to catch one or both of the games last night you were in for a real treat! Whatta thrill! Down to the wire! Reminds me of last year’s Giants – Padres game, the 162nd game, 9th inning and last out. I still get goosebumps remembering the thrill of it all.
