Our National Nightmare Is Over: Today's Final Hall Of Fame Game

| | Comments (17)
boyzend.jpgToday at 2:00 in picturesque Cooperstown, NY the San Diego Padres will take on the Chicago Cubs in the 2008 Hall Of Fame Game. Alas, the grand spectacle of the HoF Game will end with the final out. Yes kids, today's the last one. "Why?" you may ask. Well it's pretty simple. IT IS STUPID TO HAVE AN EXHIBITION GAME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEASON. You get that, right? Just like it was stupid to have teams play exhibition games after their "season opener", it's silly to risk injury in a game that means nothing. So maybe next year they'll knock that Japan crap off too.

Lou Piniella spoke out against the game this week. Truly a brave stance. It's that kind of honesty in the face of already canceled pageantry that makes him a leader of men.

Unlike my co-captain here, I like the Hall of Fame. It's an incredible museum and I find no trouble setting aside the flaws and politics of it from the enjoyment I get walking around and looking at all the exhibits, relics and plaques. But like most, I'm glad their game is as dead as Joe Garagiola, Sr. Wait, what?

As for the game itself, as of press time I can't even figure out who is starting. But I hope everyone there has a nice time, or whatever.

Since this game doesn't count, the Padres will get about 15 hits and score 9 runs.

And they will still lose.

So why are the Mariners and Nationals still playing?

How about two teams play at Cooperstown during Spring Training, in February?

ps: I like how WoW is just like the rest of the sports world....College World Series = not worth covering/mentioning

Why doesn't college baseball exist in the sports media world?

pps: FUCK Miami!!!

CTC did a good preview for the CWS.

@Grunter

Write one on your own. You're bored and lonely, aren't you?

Why doesn't college baseball exist in the sports media world?

Because Rice, Cal-State Fullerton and Wichita State are elite programs.

Oh, and metal bats.

previews, emus!

i need game coverage...even though i'm an FSU fan, i still would have thought that the record breaker Stanford had in the 9th inning would have made some sort of headline (they scored 11 runs in the 9th inning...CWS record)

@ Phony Gwynn: metal bats....touche!


WoW Unofficial CWS Update: FSU 1 MIA 0 (2nd inning)

FACT: Nothing is more boring than the NCAA boxscore

@Grundle

Then watch it here (espn360.com) like i'm doing.

BTW, Grunter, we can barely cover Major League Baseball properly, let alone amateur baseball.

@CTC...was that a subconcious compoundswear.com freudian slip?

@ Jiegel

I can answer for CTC (he's too busy not covering the CWS)

YES it was.

@ CTC

that's MISTER Grundle!!

@ Rob I

I can understand that, but CTC does have a slight interest in this year's CWS

I give no breaks to CTC.

CWS Update: FSU-1 MIA-2....3rd Inning

-WoW's Answer to the FSU Cowgirls

Hall of fame game got rained out.

so will they make up this stupid exhibition game or just let sleeping dogs lie?

did it really rain or did the league finally start paying attention to WoW?
