Default Rays Win! Rays Win!

Made it nerve-wracking after winning the first three. But they’re going to the World Series!

Congrats to the Rays!

I can't get interested in sports where players have opted out for the season which has one third the number of games of a regular season. I think that all of the champions of their sports should have asterisks next to their names for the 2020 season.

Apparently you got just barely interested enough to post in this thread. Too bad.

Pardon me and others for trying to have a little fun through these difficult times.

Thanks, Debbie.

I am pulling for the small market team that drafts and developers their talent and operates their business on a tight budget. Go Rays!

Rays rock 7 players on astros each make over half what rays team makes , by the way no one on the teams the rays have played opted out .you sound like some of the guys who’ll come up to me while I’m wearing a sports cap to tell me there boycotting sports , well I don’t care I don’t care if you don’t where a mask and that you were in the army and it’s disrespectful I’m still going to wear my hat today and watch football all day and maybe think a little about the eleven years in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia as a soldier and civilian

That * would be about as necessary as the ‘ you put in it’s.

Sorry...couldn’t resist.

Yeah, but your original post didn’t need “it is”, it needed “its”, the possessive word.

Heheh. I rarely go the grammar route. Mistakes are very common on ToTV...and I know I’m not immune. Heheh. I tried to do it with a bit of a fun.

Very classy of you to acknowledge.

Possible Tampa trifecta on the horizon, Lightening won the Stanley Cup, Rays going to the World Series and maybe Brady will take the Bucs to the super bowl! Pretty exciting for us Tampa natives.
