There’s no better drama on television than AMC’s Mad Men.
It’s right on par with the Spranos, perhaps even better.
And Mad Men was the perfect escape to a rather boring Game 4 of the World Series, a 10-2 drubbing by the Phillies.
So, what’s the chance Tampa Bay rallies for a Game 6 with Cole Hamels – (4-0) 1.55 post season ERA – on the mound for the Phils tomorrow?
Let’s just say not likely.
And so, this isn’t exactly the series I was pulling for in this Fall Classic.
Sure, there has been some drama, last night’s walkoff dribbler, Utley and Howard’s back-to-back jacks, Joe Blanton’s bomb and an occasional flare from the Rays too, but this series is now largely in favor of Philadelphia.
The Phillies are already talking about its victory parade through downtown Philly, their confidence sky high with a 3-1 series lead.
And why not, Pena and Longoria are still hitless for Tampa Bay, the Rays are playing spotty defense and the once sleeping giant Ryan Howard is wide awake at the plate.
Oh, and did I mention Cole Hamels is throwing tomorrow?
Sorry Tampa Bay, you’ve been a wonderful Cinderella, but the shoe doesn’t fit.
