Am I the only person who just didn’t care?
The wife and I watched the final half inning last night, which was fun. But otherwise, I was indifferent. Giants—meh. Rangers—meh. Save for Josh Hamilton and a little Matt Treanor (great guy, by the way), didn’t have much interest in their players. Struck me as two forgettable ballclubs that happened to make it.
Which, of course, isn’t a bad thing. Actually, it’s a great thing. Much better than Yankees-Phillies. But I didn’t care. At all.
What I do find myself caring about is the NFL. Shocked by the Jets 9-0 loss to Green Bay. Dazzled by Detroit, a team that just might give Rex two-straight loses. Seriously, the Lions are good. Really good. So, for that matter, are the Raiders. A couple of years ago I thought Darren McFadden was doomed to enter the gates of Bustville. Now, if the Pro Bowl were today, he’s starting. What I like about Oakland is how wrong I was. Genuinely believed Jason Campbell would go there and suck. But he doesn’t suck—he’s actually pretty darn good. Genuinely believed the team was on crack for sending a first-round pick to the Pats for Richard Seymour. Well, look how that’s turning out. The man is an animal, and New England will wind up with the 23rd or so pick. No biggie.
