If you are a baseball fan, there are not any more exciting words than Game 7 of the World Series.

What an incredibly exciting World Series this has been.  Two equally matched teams displaying fight and grit.  One moment it’s been great pitching and then it’s home run mashing.  Watching the excitement in the players has been a joy..something that we never used to see players show.  As i watched Joc Peterson round the bases last night, he looked like every kid who dreamed of hitting a home run in the World Series.

Just when you think one team has control of the Series, the other rebounds and comes back to gain the momentum.  Going into last night’s game, I thought Houston was going to take it…they had traded for Justin Verlander mid-season just for a game like this.  Guess what?  LA wasn’t buying into that theory and came back for a 3-1 win.  Kenley Jansen, who had been hammered his last two outings in the Series, got a six out save and now we are headed to Game 7.

Game 7.  World Series.  Last baseball game of the season.  What more could you ask for as a baseball fan!!  Every kid’s dream…every fan’s dream.  I have no idea what so ever about who is going to be the World Series Champion late tonight…all I know is that even though neither of these teams is high on my “favourites” list…as a baseball fan, couldn’t ask for anything more.    LET’S PLAY BALL!!
