A's Won't Win The War On Terror

You might ask, "can we win?" And I will say, "I don't think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions where you can compete every season."

I love the Oakland A's. I was raised an A's fan and will die an A's fan, but Bay Area, we're not going to win the World Series this year. Nope. Sorry. We need to be honest with ourselves. With large-market teams out there like the evil New York Yankees and the dispicable Boston Red Sox in the running, how can we do it? The evil Yankees can lose a superstar to injury and quickly have another ready to step up. The same with Boston.

Sure we possess the best pitching in the American League and maybe all of baseball. Our arms could easily shutout any team in a short series and our hitters can launch as many bombs as any other team, but c'mon.

Let's be honest. We are not suppose to win the whole thing. It would cost ownership too much money all at once. Sure, it's possible. The A's could have signed Pudge Rodriguez this last winter and win the World Series this year. Florida did it. One season of palatable attendance and now their back to square one. The A's, on the other hand, tease their fans. They make you believe they're in the race for the pennant, thereby securing good to great attendance and make a tidy little profit for years.

Ahhhh, I'm tired of this analogy!

What's going on, George W. Are you kinding me? We can't win the war on terror? You have such a bad attitude. Couldn't you keep that to yourself? You're ruining your little celebration of dancing on the graves of 3,000 people who dyed because you didn't pay attention to your terrorist czar. Let's give up. Forget it. Call Laura and the TWINS! and go chop some twigs in Crawford. This is the craziest thing I've ever heard from a president. Indefensible.

I use to be scared by this guy, now I'm very alarmed. A couple of weeks ago he "misspoke" and said his adminstration is doing everything it can to harm the country and its people. Maybe he was telling the truth!

Think positive America. Vote John Kerry. I was kidding about the A's, they're going to win it all.
