Was talking to a guy at work and we were wondering... if it's Cleveland/GS again, it would be the same final two teams for the 3rd straight year.   Has that ever happened before in the four so-called "major sports"?   We couldn't recall any.   Don't think it's happened in college football or college basketball either, though Clemson and Alabama have a shot to do it this fall.

Dodgers and Yanks in Brooklyn days maybe?  Have to look it up.

I believe they mentioned that it hasn't happened in basketball.  Baseball may be the best chance.  Need to look at the old WS.

Here in Elkridge it has mostly stopped raining.

It started here a bit before Baltimore, and it takes about 20 minutes to get the tarp off the field, so....

Agreed...but I can't deny that I'm stoked for the Finals. 

I have hardly watched any of the playoffs. More hockey even though I don't watch regular season hockey at all. 

Should be a good one.

Yanks and Giants played three straight years from 1921 - 1923

I'm sorry. I was being a smart ass. I have no idea. 

No worries. That was funny. I really thought you had the radar up and could tell how long it was going to take for the system to go though. I'll still take sleep and horse racing over late night baseball. I'll give it another 15.

Lakers-Celtics played 4 out of 5 years in the 60s, but not three straight.

I hope I am close or under.

Yes.  I heard earlier it was a blowout.  

Hard for me to get into a sport with no competition until the Finals. Just awful 

I don't have a problem with it at all. Champions should be determined by who the best team is not a team who catches fire at the right time or have a few lucky bounces go their way. In the NBA playoffs, the best team always wins and that's the way it should be. They award excellence like no other professional sports league in North America

One of those long nights. Had an early evening gig, a radio show. Listened to the game on At Bat on way home. Went out to dinner with the family, tracked the game. Listened on the way home and then to the storage unit to dump the drum gear. Back home, watching it on MLB-TV. And now a rain delay. It's playing out almost like that Davis two inning pitching game vs. Boston for me. I kept up with the game in 3 or four different places I was that day.

Yep, but it's still no Premier League. That is a "true" champion.

The Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions played in the NFL World Championship game 3 years in a row, from 1952-1954.

    • Cobb in his postgame interview was solid and doesn't want to be traded. When told Palmer thinks he could be dealt if he continues to pitch well he had a change of facial expression like he was upset. He thinks their team is real and are in every game and likes it here.  The perfect answer after giving the team  basically nothing so far on his big contract. If he keeps going around 6 innings and giving up 3 runs or less he will be in demand and will be dealt. We have too many young pitchers ready to move up and they will  move his salary the first chance they get to a money team like the Dodgers, Angels or even the Red Sox. 
    • Ben predicts pitches regularly and is very informative. Is Ben on all of the shortened season games? I hope so. He is awesome! I think somehow he is helping the players and coaches. Not illegally just being around. Scott doesn't have much enthusiasm but think he will get better. I think no fans makes him that way. Ben is fantastic and holds things together.  Change is good!
    • I agree with everything said. The cutouts and noise will keep the players from getting bored or falling asleep.
    • Can't say I've been enjoying the commentary. Garceau has the same mispronunciations and inaccuracies as Thorne but without any of the energy and excitement. Ben McDonald just goes on about productive at-bats and bunting like it's 1990. Palmer had a little bit of that too, but he seems to have kept up with the advances in the game more, despite being 20 years older. The one positive is that McDonald identifies the pitches correctly and is pretty good at describing a pitcher's repertoire.
    • Horn blasts arent phony.  There's a group of 10 or 12 real fans who go to a gate of the stadium where they can see a tiny sliver of the field through bars and they sit in lawn chairs and stand on ladders and follow the game and blow horns and do some chants.  They wear masks and say they social distance.  The Phillies even turned on TVs over concession stands in their view so they can watch the game. They call themselves the Phandemic Crew or something like that. Aaron Boone and the Yankees actually complained about them saying the horn blasts were timed with pitches just like fans who try to disturb golfers by making noise just as they swing. Google Phandemic, you'll find articles about the m.
    • I like it.     Thought it was really a fun vibe in Philly.    I like their phony crowd noise too, complete with random horn blasts.    Overall, I think the sound engineers are getting better at what they’re doing with experience.
