Well, the big decision is tonight at 8:00 at the Sportsman’s Grille. It is then and there that I will pull the chad (ooh, that does sound dirty) that will decide which MLB team I will root for during the 2007 season. I am closing all lobbying efforts at noon today and no supporters will be allowed within 100 ft. of the bar during the time of the election.
I have been inundated with intense last-minute campaigning and I have to admit some of the negative ads have started to wear on me. And some people’s “logic” revolves about how cute I’d look in a John Candelaria vintage Pirates cap. I promised to respect everyone’s opinion, no matter how weird.
I’ll be glad when this process is over and a selection has been made so we can get on with the business of running this country, working to bring our boys back from Iraq and talking about my various bodily functions.
So the current polling is one chance for each of the 30 major league teams with the following adjustments and their lobbyists:
+1 Red Sox Bridgett
+1 Yankees Hutchmo
+1 White Sox Shauna
-1 Cubs Aunt B
+2 Cubs DogDoc, Mistersippi
+1 Brewers Kerry Woo
+2 Reds Sista Smiff, Fishwreck
+2 Pirates NewsComa, Aunt B.
-1 Pirates JB
It may be after midnight before we can get the final results tallied, depending on how many Jager shots I drink. So stay tuned tomorrow for Selection 06!
