The World Series is set

A few minutes ago, I was checking out the Bushmaster site. While I was there and looking at weapons, I couldn't decide what I wanted. So, I went and looked through some old photos of mine to see what my old M-16 used to look like. While I was looking, I found a few pictures of Iraqis wearing hats of the two teams that will be appearing in the World Series. Here they are.

First up is the first team to clinch, the Phillies. Check this out. Notice the one kid there with the Phils hat. He is accompanied by a few friends and my old gunner, SGT Burgess.

Unfortunately, the Yanks held off the Halos tonight. I would have preferred that the Angels had won, but ultimately, it would not have fit this post (I have no pictures of an Angels hat in Iraq). So here is an Iraqi kid that will surely be cheering on the Yankees on Wednesday.

Damn, I found another Yankee fan in the bunch. I guess that means the Yankees are going to win, 4 games to 2. I hope that is not the case. But if it is, at least we have someone to blame.

On a side note, these are the only two teams that I can find in my Iraq picture albums. I know that I saw more, but I do not have pictures of them. For instance, I saw two different Royals shirts there. One looked like a kids stadium giveaway. The other was a polo that looked like it belonged to an employee of the supermarket that used to sponsor the team. So, in the end, I think that it is kind of ironic that the only photos that I have of MLB teams in Iraq feature the two teams that will be facing each other next week. What are the odds?
