So, the World Series is over. The Yankees are World Champions of Baseball. Again. For some, this is a time of rejoicing when every happy day is Christmas and the streets overflow with beer.

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The New York Yankees Versus The Philadelphia Phillies

Tonight, my friends, is game six of the World Series, aka the night the Yankees could win it all. To be completely honest with you, I couldn’t give a damn about baseball and have never watched a full game in my life. However, I recognize that the game involves hot, illusive men in tights who do heroic things, so I’ll take a gambit at making potentially fakelife-altering decisions and choose which of the Yankees and which of the Phillies I would shun, shag, and marry.

Female Phillies Fan Offers Sex For World Series Tickets

It’s been raining cats and dogs here in New York City for the last 24 hours, but hopefully it’ll clear up tonight for game one of the World Series between the Yankees and the Phillies. My die-hard Yankees fan of a husband would probably give his left … well, let’s just say he’d be really excited to go to a game, but he’s not as desperate — or as stupid, it seems — as one female Phillies fan who was arrested last night for her efforts to score tickets. Susan Finkelstein, 43, was charged with prostitution after she placed an ad on Craigslist offering sex in exchange for World Series tickets. She described herself as “gorgeous” and said: “I’m the creative type! Maybe we can help each other.” She was busted when an undercover cop responded to her ad and she allegedly offered to perform sex acts in exchange for some coveted tickets to the series.

The Girl’s Guide To The World Series (From A Woman Who’s Rekindled Her Love Of Baseball)

Last year, when the Phillies won the World Series, I cheered myself hoarse, posed with a police officer for a triumphant picture, and called my mother from the happily delirious mob I joined, beer in hand, to march down Broad Street. It was amazing — I have the Facebook pictures to prove it. And, I easily could have missed it. High school me would have rolled her eyes, channeled “Juno”-level snark, and stayed inside. Here’s how I learned to love the ball game, plus a guide for non-believers. Keep reading »
