  2. That had two things going against it. First was that both teams came from the same rather small geographic area which limited nation wide interest. Second, and I think more important, was that there was not a long standing rivalry between the two teams. Mets are a fairly new team, only going back to the early '60s. Yanks and Dodgers have a rivalry going for over a century, it would have been a west coast v. eastern seaboard as well as a CA v. NY series. Wide national appeal, even if nothing but to see the team you hate the most get stomped. This Series will be TX v. DC. Symbolic of rugged individualism against the political machine. Or Wild West against staid and stodgy Eastern Propriety.

  11. I have to say that my first thought on seeing the subject line was, "Why is he asking something about "Zur Judenfrange?"
  12. I had to look that up. I was expecting to see it as an euphemism for molasses. Boy, was I wrong! Sounds like nectar of the gods.
  13. It's a PDF so you may need to download then open.
