The baseball playoffs are in full swing, and I can't help but wonder why it is that they seem to stretch on a lot longer than they used to. Of course, that seems to be the case in all sports anymore, with the basketball and hockey postseasons now seemingly longer than the season.
They call Derek Jeter "Mr. November," and I figured at the time it was because of the gap in the season resulting from the games cancelled in the aftermath of 9/11. But the World Series has happened in November every year since. I don't get it. Of course, there are a lot of things I don't get. I don't mind, though. Gives me something to do when the power goes out. Cheers.
