World Series '07


Many of you dear loyal readers will remember the candy bar that I offered to whoever was closest to guessing the score to the Superbowl. Unless you are Ben or Jenn then you will also remember that you did not win. Here is a chance to redeem yourselves. Everybody that would like a chance at winning the candy bar simply needs to guess what team is going to win (Colorado or Boston) and in how many games (this value should range from 4-7 - if you want a realistic chance). As a tiebreaker include what you think the final score to the game will be and then of course, don't forget to let me know what kind of candy bar you would like.

Although, I consider Boston my second favorite team (after the Cincinnati Reds), I would like to see the Rockies win this year. There are a few reasons for this. The first is that the Red Sox are simply to bandwaggony anymore. I'll admit right now that I was more of a bandwagon guy than anything when I started cheering for the Red Sox. When your team (the Reds) stinks it up for a decade and a half, you've got to find another team to cheer for, as an attempt to fill the void. Another reason is that I'm excited to possibly see the 8th team in 8 years win the World Series. Talk about parity. It's also exciting to see our closest major league team make it to the WS. If I wasn't in school, we would really consider trying to get tickets to a game.

If the ALCS would have ended in fewer than 7 games, then I would have chosen the Rockies to win because they were so hot. Because they've been sitting so long (8 days total), I'm a little nervous as to how they'll respond. See my own attempt at the candy bar in the comments.

I'm going out on a limb and sticking with the Rockies here (I really think that all of the top AL teams are far better than the NL teams). My vote is for the Rockies in 6, with a final game score of 6-4. Get me a butterfinger!

I cannot predict when the Sox are in...I have too much invested! I agree about the bandwagon Sox fans. They drive me nuts. But let the record show this guy has been a Red Sox fan his whole life. No bandwagon here.

I'm also going to go with the minority and choose the Rockies in 5. Final game: 7-3. Hook me up with a Twix!

Reigning champions weighing in here: We say Red Sox in 7! Final score: 9-5
We enjoy White Chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Is it fair for both of us to be on the same ticket?

It's going to be Red Sox in 7. The final score will be 12-1.

And...the Utes will stumble in Ft. Collins on Saturday. They will, unfortunately, beat BYU, however.

I'm not sure if I need to pay up or not. Out of the four guesses, 2 of us picked the Rockies and 2 picked the Red Sox in 7. Maybe Spencer and Ben and Jenn all deserve the prize... We'll see :).

Since we won last time, you can give the prize to Spencer. After all of the Halloween candy I'm planning on eating, I probably won't need the candy bar too...but if you want to send it, well, we won't send it back. :)
