Is evisceration too much to ask for?

We might not be involved, but I think this post-season is way more interesting than last year. My post-season wishlist involves a Tampa/Milwaukee World Series to screw with FOX, whose executives are no doubt praying nightly for a Cubs/Red Sox match-up.

In the spirit of baseball cameraderie, I do have a little request of our little buddies, the Rays.

Dear Tampa Bay Rays,
Tomorrow is a big day for you, and here in Twins Territory, we're all very
proud of you and we're pulling for you to go all the way. In return for
our unwavering support this post-season, I do have one teeny-tiny favor
to ask of you. I would like you to annihilate the White Sox in historic
fashion. I would love for blood, tears, and drool to be involved. If
one or more Sox players has to change uniforms mid-game due to soiling themselves, I will give you bonus points AND cookies. Actually, now that I'm thinking about
it, is evisceration too much to ask for? Because that would be awesome. And it'd probably boost ratings. Win-win.

Amen.
The only thing that would be more fitting than the Rays destroying the Sox would be if Boof were apart of it. *sigh* Ahh.. the road not taken.

I'd be very disappointed if Boof didn't fly home to see his hometown team (and his BFF Garza) beat the crap out of the White Sox. Boof is practically a Ray in spirit....ever since he gave a couple of [very premature] interviews saying he was being traded there. Oops.

I would also request a high fast ball that flattens (not hits) AJ enough times to put some grey in his bleached hair. (I know you love him) which is why I have not called for the loss of a testicle

Katie said...

I'm guessing that after AJ's theatrics the last time the Sox and Rays met...there are several Rays pitchers willing to make all your dreams come true, Michele.

From Rays fans everywhere, we thank you for the support. I'll be at the game cheering my ass off for my small market team! GO RAYS!!!

A Rays/Brewers World Series would be maginficent. I too was thinking that would give the folks at ESPN really high blood pressure.

oh man...I meant Fox and I spelled magnificent wrong the 1st time.

I'll help you bake the cookies for the Rays if they are able to do that for us.

After the loss of Jason Bartlett from the Twins...I never thought I'd be able to cheer *loudly* for him again (without feeling any guilt). Here I am though...hoping for a blowout from the Rays and to tear apart those filthy White Sox. GO JASON!

First time I've been able to smile since Tuesday night when it comes to anything concerning the Twins. Thank you for softening the disappointment a bit with your excellent style and humor. And I love the fact that one certain AL team is left out of your vote as favorite to win the pennant.

AJ hit by a pitch just as they are pulling shields and now they have a play anywhere......oh happy day

Well, as much as I'd like a Rays/Brewers match-up, I am a total anti-Sconnie guy, so I can't wish for it. Personally, I'd rather it be the Rays/Dodgers. That way the Steinbrenners would have to eat so much crow they'd be Sh*tting feathers!
