The National Baseball Commission pulled the plug on the 2010 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Texas Rangers today due to severe loss of revenue. The surprise triumph of the Rangers and the Giants in their divisions this season astonished everyone as both teams normally end up in a much lower bracket in the wins department at summer's end.
The normally top slated New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have both been left out of the party this year, a shakeup of what has almost become an East Coast tradition of having both teams at least in the playoffs and usually one in the Series. This has come as a big upset to both fans and, in our modern American society more importantly, their corporate sponsors.
When the major corporations who now own American baseball realized their big swingers, the Sox and Yankees, where not going to be in the big revenue generating Series, they got together in a major cabinet meeting and ousted the two lesser teams and, overriding the entire season and the playoffs to reinstate the Sox and Yankees as the opposing teams.
Baseball Commissioner Itsall Bout DeBucks had this to say:
"Hey, I know people are upset, but this is big business. We can't be wasting the money spent on one of America's greatest sporting events on two fleabag teams that aren't even from the east coast. I mean, for Christsakes, Texas and San Francisco? That's not even the suburbs any more. We need to keep the great American game of baseball on the East Coast where it all started.
"The Rangers? They are a snotty nosed bunch of punks have barely even gotten out of diapers. And San Francisco? Man, what are we going to get for fans at that? A bunch of pansy waisted girly dressing limp wrists sashaying their way into the ballpark from their Saturn sissy cars while sipping on fruity wine coolers? No thank you!
"Think we would get any muscle SUV or beer ads from the big boys with that crowd watching? No way! Imagine what THAT would do to the macho image of our beloved sports! No siree! Leave the control of who is on top in baseball to us just like we do in politics.
"Remember our motto: 'We know what is better for you than you do.'"
