The World Series, much like every other major sports championship, is a must-see event.

Yes, the fact that it could last for seven games will deter many fans from paying close attention, but at the same time, the fact that, well, it could last for seven games makes it incredibly exciting.

The 2012 MLB playoffs have had it all: blowouts, late-inning comebacks, series comebacks, series sweeps, a Marco Scutaro MVP award, an Alex Rodriguez benching, multiple Game 5's, a Game 7 and plenty more unforgettable moments.

If the past unbelievable month is any indication, then the Detroit Tigers, who haven't played in what seems like a couple of months, and the San Francisco Giants, who have made a habit of three-game comebacks in win-or-go-home situations, are about to give us one of the most compelling World Series matchups in recent memory.

If that doesn't sound like something you'd be interested in, then I simply don't know how to help your poor soul. 

Let's take a look at everything you need to know to catch the action.
