For fun yesterday, I put together a list of examples of why the Rays are “The Most Likeable Team In Sports.” Of course, this is nothing that most of you guys don’t know. But I have a sneaky feeling that if the Rays can get past the Red Sox, the Rays (and especially Joe Maddon) will become the trendy team to fall in love with.
Then, this morning, Dre pointed me to “19 awesome things about the Tampa Bay Rays,” which is a similar look at the team over at USAToday.com.
Now I am wondering if the Rays’ slobber-fest will actually begin in this series. In the meantime, let’s bask in the knowledge that we have been here the entire time, and welcome our new friends as they jump on board.
