The Angels Stadium - one of my favourite pictures from holiday
The Red Sox did it. Or rather, David Ortiz did. A convincing 4-2 win over St Louis and I confess that I watched pretty much all of it. Great stuff.
We're talking baseball, in case you're wondering. I don't fully understand how it works but having seen a game in the summer, I was immediately hooked. A friend took us to see the LA Angels. We chose Mike Trout as our favourite player before we saw him play because how can you not root for a guy with a name like that? Turns out he's their star player but we didn't know that - honest. "We" beat the Toronto Blue Jays. A brilliant evening that the whole family enjoyed. Normally that would be the end of it but on returning home I found that, due to a BT broadband line, I was able to watch baseball here too. Hence being able to watch the World Series. Had we made the trip to watch the Dodgers instead we'd have had a longer season as they were contenders at one point. But you know how it is, support your local team.
I see that there is a South West League over here. It comprises four teams, Bristol, Plymouth, Exeter and (oddly) Torbay. If I was ten (or twenty) years younger... As it is maybe I'll take a camera along sometime.
