High Five’s or New Rules

I have been thinking about Game 6 all day today. The game had so many amazing features and I didn’t even turn it on until the 8th inning. Even though I am not a huge fan of either team, two of my favs are in the series: Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton…neither disappointed last night. […]
