World Series Headlines

For it's one, two, three strikes your out at the old Game Time!

Last Week's Winner

Halloween was last Saturday, and in honor of the ocasión we played a little game where you had to come up with a spooooooky story. Thing is, you had to start the story with "I was in the graveyard when…"

Look at the answers yourselves if you want to, but some weird stuff happened with everybody forgetting the "when" and then re-posting their old comment with some misspelled form of "proofread" at the beginning and then adding in the "when" all at the same time in the early morning.

We at the Pake Shlake Band call shenanigans. Bad shenanigans. Not good shenanigans.

Big A wins. End of discussion.

This Week's Game

So the World Series took place this week, and six games later, we have a new world champion (if you consider the United States the "world" and a team with 27 championships as "new").

Anyway, since "new" "world" "champions" seems like big news to us, we've decided to play a round of the PSB Original Game, Headliners. You remember how to play? You'll figure it out. Here's the news summary:

The New York Yankees won their 27th World Series Championship on Wednesday, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies 7-3 in Game 6 at Yankee Stadium. It was the first year the Yankees have played at the new Yankee Stadium after closing the stadium of the same name built in 1923 after last season. Despite Phillies' 2nd baseman Chase Utley tying Reggie Jackson for most home runs in a World Series with five, Philadelphia could not come back from trailing the series 3-1. Hideki Matsui became the 1st ever Japanese born World Series MVP after hitting in six of the seven runs in Game 6. It was the first World Series championship for the Yankees since 2000, as it marked Alex Rodriguez's first and the fifth for Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, and Mariano Rivera.

And now our headline for this article? Here it is:
Jeter and Rodriguez Get Rings for Thumb; ARod Starts With Thumb To Look Cool

Let's see if the PSB can't crown a "new" "Headliners" "world" "champion".


  1. Chase Utley? More Like Chump Utley

  2. "Jerry Hairston Jr. screwed out of World Series MVP, just like dad and future son JHIII"

  3. Godzilla Defeats Mothra!

    [Pretend Utley's nickname is Mothra.]

  4. Nick Swisher's World Series Ring Mistakely Awarded to the Swiffer Broom.
