Say it isn't so!

Ever since Brian Wilson got the called 3rd strike to end game six Saturday night, I've been walking around with a permanent smile on my face.  Even the 49ers loss did little to dampen my spirits.  But then I read something that really brought me down in a hurry.  Apparently, the TV ratings for this World Series will be low.  Oh the horror!  If the Giants win the World Series, and no one in NY or Philadelphia is watching, did they really win it?

I love the Giants.  Nothing would make me happier than to watch them win the World Series.  But if the price of my happiness means low ratings for FOX, well that's just too high of a price to pay.  I emailed the Giants and asked them if they would forfeit their WS spot so the Phillies and their larger national fan base could take their place, but they have yet to get back to me.  Maybe they don't care.  Maybe they have no compassion for all those long suffering Yankees and Phillies fans who now have nothing to watch?  Next thing you know, we'll hear that Cody Ross clubs baby seals in his spare time.

Well, it might be too late to fix this seasons gross miscarriage of justice, but we can fix things for future generations of teams with big fan bases.  I propose we have two World Series.  One for the major market teams like NY, Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago, and one for middle to small market teams like the Giants, Rangers, Rays, and Twins.  It will be like at elementary schools where they have one playground for kindergartners and a different playground for everyone else.  Maybe MLB could even get the Jr World Series games played on Versus.  How great would that be?!

So in the name of everything sacred and holy, let's join together to push for reform in this matter.  Let's ensure we never have a World Series match-up wear the ratings could be low.  Because knowing some stranger in Philadelphia doesn't care about the outcome of this World Series, is making it really hard for me to sleep at night.
