WORLD SERIES ACTION TONIGHT
World Series action tonight! Back in my day the World Series was the biggest sporting event of the year. Now, I’m afraid, for most sports fans it’s an after thought. Some even need to be reminded it begins tonight. Still, even some more many need to be reminded who’s playing. Many others would have trouble naming players on the participating teams. This fact was eluded to recently on a Monday Night Football broadcast when announcer Troy Aikman referred to “my Rangers” are doing well. Joe Buck fired back and said he’s give Aikman 100 dollars on the spot if he could name 4 players on the Rangers. Point made.
Never the less, it’s time to get ready for the Fall Classic with a quiz. Are you ready?
