My wife is picking the Giants... her logic is sound
Every year I ask my loving and adoring wife for her picks in the playoffs. In 2006 she got every single playoff series correct (including each of the Cardinals upsets.)
The thing is that she doesn't follow baseball. Her logic isn't always sound (she picked the Cardinals over the Tigers because Tony LaRussa is involved in animal shelters and Jim Leyland smokes.) But who cares about the method if the results are good?
So today, the day after our 7th wedding anniversary, we made the 2010 picks official.
SULLY: So honey, first we need the A. L. picks.
SULLY'S WIFE: The Al? The Al who?
SULLY: The American League picks.
SULLY'S WIFE: Well I liked The Town, so I am going with the Red Sox.
SULLY: That's great honey, but the Red Sox aren't in it.
SULLY'S WIFE: OK so who is playing?
SULLY: The Texas Rangers versus the Tampa Bay Rays.
SULLY'S WIFE: Bay Rays? Is that like Fay Wray? What kind of name is that?
