Props to Nolan Ryan, George Bush and Herman Cain for sending the Texas Rangers to the World Series. Herman Cain, you ask? I presume his 9-9-9 plan inspired the Rangers to tack up nine runs in the third inning (three nines, get it?). You can't buy that kind of advertising.
And since my initial prediction of Phillies over the Yanks has been washed out, let me pick Texas over whichever beer outlet represents the lesser league.
