It’s too bad my team is so bad this year.
At work, I’m part of a trio of baseball fans: one Red Sox, one Yankees (boo!), one Orioles (meh). We have broom that gets passed around each of our teams sweeps someone else’s. The broom has been pretty quiet for a good long while. The Orioles swept the Yankees in a rain-shortened series (the definition of a “sweep” has been up for debate for some time now), but since our Yankees fan had been holding onto the broom for the better part of the year, the technicality of what a sweep is, is currently a moot point. Really, what’s important is the fact that the Yankees fan still has the broom.
