GAME SEVEN

Well, Game Seven of the World Series is on right now and after the great game last night, when the Texas Rangers had the St. Louis Cardinals down to their last strike not once but twice, only to lose 10-9 in 11 innings, I think it's a foregone conclusion. I think the Rangers have had it.

I see no way they can win now. Texas looks like they're about to go down in history as the Buffalo Bills of major league baseball, right into the same dustbin as the '97 Cleveland Indians who blew a World Series to Florida in similar fashion. Last night was their opportunity, and they let it get away. And when you let opportunity get away like that, chances are it won't come back. Right now they're down by three runs. Well, anyway, at least it's nice to know there are other sports fans suffering (folks in football-mad Saskatchewan are not alone...).

Speaking of suffering sports fans -- get ready for a full month of nothing after this, because the NBA just got rid of two more weeks of the season.
