It has been about 10 days since I accepted and passed the ALDS “Ice Bucket Challenge”. My son had a lot of fun dumping a bucket of water on his dear old Dad.
Okay, ten days now, and I still do not get it. The Standings in the American League have tightened, however there is still a whole month to play people! How does dumping ice water on your head affect the ALDS?!?!?! If anything, it would affect somehow, the Wildcard playoffs – not the DIVISIONAL SERIES!!!!
One, of the things that I completely do not understand is why this ice-thing had to be the AMERICAN League Division Series challenge. Look, I’m a National League kind of guy. I like the bunt, the hit-and-run, the taking the extra base. None of this waiting around for a three-run homer stuff. Don’t even get me started with the Designated Hitter rule.
Damn it! The AL won the All-star game this year, so we will only have National League strategy in three games this year.
Maybe next year, there will be a NLDS Ice Bucket, or maybe a HOT BUCKET for the league where they play real baseball with real strategy!
