Admittedly, maybe its the lack of Cubs in this years playoffs…but I haven’t seen anything to get excited about. Normally the playoffs are extremely addictive and I love watching every minute regardless of who is playing. This year however, I haven’t seen anything to get all that excited about.
I am hoping that it is either going to be an Angels/Dodgers series…my number two choice because then we’d hear fun promos about a freeway series. Not really fun as much as different which will keep things interesting. A Yankees/Dodgers series…my first choice because I’d love to see Torre beat the Yankees. For sports fans it provides the best story lines. An Angels/Phillies series because I hate the Phillies and wouldn’t mind rooting for them to fall at the door of a back to back championship.
The only combination I absolutely won’t watch is a Yankees/Phillies series. I hate both teams with a passion and will find no joy in seeing either finish October successfully.
So, hopefully it’s Torre over the Yankees. I get to see the Yankees lose and Torre have the last laugh. The Cubs aren’t in it, so that sounds fun to me.
The film festival was a blast by the way. I had more people show up to screen my comedy “Quarter Life” than any other film in the festival. The audience loved it and it was a blast to screen a film I act in, in front of a group of people I’m not blood related to. The filmmakers had a great time. We screened over 75 films in four days and I look forward to screening more films next year. One of those films may be a Cubs film I have in mind. We’ll see how that goes though over time.
For those with teams still playing in the final four, enjoy. I can’t wait for the 2010 season to begin.
