Somehow I missed this

Last night was Spouse's turn to choose the movie for Saturday date night. So we ended up seeing Fever Pitch. The love plot in the movie was pretty predictable, but I kept wondering what was going to happen with the baseball team.

At the end of the movie, I turned to him and said, "So the Boston Red Sox ended up winning the World Series? After all those years?"

He rolled his eyes and said, "You know, for most people, this was not a surprise ending."

Just tell everyone you lost interest in MLB when they went on strike years ago. You'll get empathic looks and remarks and you won't look so clueless.

LOL!! Since I sit right next to a *huge* sox fan, I got the blow by blow every day. Otherwise, I probably would have been just as clueless.

Hee hee.
Catherine Newman wrote once about seeing "Titanic" and how the woman sitting behind her gasped at one point, "I don't think the ship can sustain that type of damage!" Compared to that one, you're looking pretty informed.

This is so damn funny. Just out of curiosity, where do you live?

Joe,
Because if you live in NYC or Boston, then this is funny AND amazing.

Grandma Blue, I do live in the northeast. But the only person I know who follows baseball -- my husband -- is a Chicago Cubs fan. And Cubs fans usually stop watching baseball somewhere in July.

Hee. I wouldn't have known either. Well, maybe if I thought about it. Because now I do recall. But that's the kind of info my brain immediately releases because of limited capacity and low priority.
