Well, it took them five games but the Angels have just now (finally) beaten the Yankees in the ALDS. While I'm not an especially big fan of the Angels, it's always nice to see the local boys do good (particularly in the absense of any quality play by my Dodgers). But even better, I'm just happy to see the Yankees go home empty-handed, and for the post-season to finally be free of any fevered coverage of the Yanks and/or Sox. For the time being, at least, the baseball world no longer rotates on that damn Boston/New York axis.
While, in my heart, I'm hoping for an Astros/White Sox World Series, I know it'll probably be the Angels and Cardinals instead. But I suppose I could live with that.
