Call this one a straight up rant.
Tonight’s playoff game, Climax Series game, part of a best of seven series, ended in a 5-5 draw. A draw. A tie. All even. Call it what you will, it makes no sense whatsoever. It’s flat out stupid.
The official game post is coming, but I thought I’d vent some frustration here. Anyone care to fill me in on what I’m missing? Instead of Game 5, maybe we’ll all join hands and sing “Kumbaya”? Maybe the series will end in a draw and we’ll cut through all the pretense and just give the trophy to Yomiuri?
Somebody out there, please explain the reasoning behind this. Explain how this is anything other than abject stupidity.
Hey, maybe there’ll be a Game 8 and Yomiuri will get to pocket more cash. Anyone who goes to or watches such an event is an apostate who should be stoned. This nonsense has to stop.
I used to think NPB execs had their heads up their asses. Now I feel like their collective heads are up my ass.
