Much is being made of the less-than-anticipated matchup of the Rays vs. the Phillies in the World Series. In a recent survey of things Americans are craving, that showdown came in right behind: a recession, more movies by the two Coreys and another season of Joey. But there’s a bigger problem. If the Series goes seven games, with each game lasting about three-and-a-half hours, that’s 24-and-a-half hours. So that means I have to be locked in a room listening to Tim McCarver and Joe Buck for 24-and-a-half hours. That’s punishment I wouldn’t wish on anybody. I think I’ll watch Drinking and Driving With the Stars over on ABC instead. Upcoming guests include Joba Chamberlain and Tony LaRussa. (The answers to the quiz will be posted tomorrow.)
