"It's on like DONKEY KONG, CLEVELAND INDIANS!"
The Toronto Blue Jays will be playing the Cleveland Indians for the ALCS and I am really excited for this series for two reasons:
1. The Toronto Blue Jays are playing.
2. The Cleveland Indians are playing and not the NY Yankees or the Boston Red Sox or the Kansas City Royals will be playing. Cleveland's last appearance in the world series was in 1997 and they have a shot at possibly returning to it. However, their last few trips in the playoffs have not been so great as they lost to Boston in the ALCS in 2007 and lost in the wild card game to Tampa Bay in 2013. Change is good though and I'm glad to see another team that has struggled over the years in the playoffs.
I was hoping that I would get to see a NY Mets / Toronto Blue Jays world series match-up (Bucket List item) but thanks to the San Fran Giants, that will not be happening this year. Toronto being in the playoffs is kind of the bright spot for me right now in "my sports world" as the Mets are out of the world series. The NY Giants are playing "pee wee" style football and Odell Beckham is slowly turning into this prima donna:@
Eli Manning is thinking about Christmas and is giving away the team possessions. It's only preseason right now for the NY Rangers and I'm hoping that Oscar Lindberg (new pc player) can have a good second year. Henrik Lundqvist was impressive again last year and I hope he can obtain his 12th straight 20 wins season.
