But what kind of sports is this? It's an American teamsport no doubt. But what kind? Baseball? Icehockey? Rugby? Softbal? Honkbal? Football? Basketball?

 

PS

Toby is cheering with our astros's absense.

What kind of sport is this, Lo?

Seriously? As much as you talked to astros about it? :)

I never talked to astros, Gary. And publicly, we exchanged zero words about it. Not one iota, Gary.

 

What we did talk about often was his religion which in fact even tempted you to join if I remember correctly myself here: ASStroanity. Did you ever follow up on that and joined his church? Last I heard it is now led by Toby.

 

For sports, I can only imagine it is something American which is why it didn't reach the European news. And it's probably a teamsport. Which is why I said baseball? Icehockey? Rugby? Softbal? Honkbal? Football? Basketball? But maybe it's yet another one. I should ask DarthRemark, he knows sports very well but momentarily is quite disappointed at the anthoming so probably has not tuned in about this Houston team.

Lo, please know that's a huge lol that you say I might have been tempted to join his "religion". :)

But now we still do not know what sports you're talking about, Gary. Ofcourse I can look it up but the Jookiyaya-directive dictates that constitutes cheating. And I'm no cheater. Trust me. I'm not.

Lo,

 

It's Baseball.

 

This is the first time in the team's history (55 years) to win the World Series.

Thanx my friend!

 

That clears things up for me.  Seems something very different from the NFL our WSC-colleague Darth always talks about. F being Football as I gather it.

 

You know, we've only got 1 big sport over here and that's soccer. My country has just become Champions in it. Female league, that is ;)

I watched some of the games of this series  , though i don't have a great understanding of the sport.

 

I forget the decisive game was on so missed it.

 

I was interested that apparently in 2013 Houston had been one of the worst teams in the leagues but - rather than take steps to improve right away - they implemented a plan of recruiting players that would not be immediately useful but would be the core of a team 3 or 4 years in the future.

 

Some fans of struggling 'soccer' clubs here got excited about this and suggested a similar long term plan .But it only could work in America where you can lose every match and still be in the league .In England you would be 2 or 3 leagues lower before your long term plan guys were ready , and then they would straight away want to leave..

Don't worry no need to learn about Baseball other than RED SOXs rule all other teams especially Yankees drool. Our team so much better, Astros coach came over to be out coach !  For the most part that can be said for most New England teams. Any euro players that are not up on american sports are welcome to send me a message and I will be happy to answer your American sports question.  : )
