Alright baseball fans! The World Series starts today and we couldn’t be more excited!! My Boston Red Sox will face off against the St. Louis Cardinals, in the pursuit of their 8th World Series ring. That’s right… it’s the Beards vs. the Birds!
This will actually be the fourth time these two teams have faced off for the World Series. The last time these two teams played each other was back in 2004, when the Red Sox ended up winning the series (and finally breaking the Bambino curse!!!). Both teams ended the regular 2013 season with a 97-65 record. (Yes, if you aren’t familiar with baseball, the teams do play that many games!).
I’m not the only blogger out there excited that her team has a shot at the 2013 Ring! My bloggy friend Sam, over at Nifty Mom, is a huge Cardinals fan. So you can imagine her excitement when she learned that the Cardinals are pursing their 12th championship!
Now we couldn’t help but place a friendly little wager on who’s team comes out on top. Be sure to pay attention to our social media accounts after the Series. You will then see what the “loser” as to do in honor of the winning team! Let’s just say both us have our fingers crossed that our team wins.
Don’t forget that Game 1 at the historic Fenway Park starts tonight with the first pitch scheduled for 8:07 p.m. EST! Will you be watching?
Who will you be rooting for in the World Series: the Boston Red Sox or the St. Louis Cardinals?
All opinions are 100% mine. I have not been influenced otherwise, except for my totally bias love of the Boston Red Sox!
