Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Game 1 Fall Classic, 1st pitch due around 1:57am in greater downtown Bremen.  i've returned from the WAB offshore stammtisch this evening, couldn't even get close to sleeping for an hour or two.

i'll try to find a way to write some more, we'll see how it works with a completely disrupted time zone.  what you all should realize is...

this (so-called) World Series pits the misfits of San Francisco against the aptly named Texas Rangers, formerly owned by George W. Bush. why aptly named, well, with no reflection on the current ballplayers, the historical texas rangers were either klansmen or kriminals, who killed ndns and mexicans equally, with no resort to trial. appropriate for a team owned by a bush.

but now the military jets of destruction have flown over the beautiful stadium, the last act of propaganda equating "america's pastime" with war.  all that's left is first pitch, and finally, the ads, the hype, the propaganda, takes a back seat to a brilliant game which begins with a diamond.

Go Giants!  Beat the Texas Rangers.
