This year's World Series hasn't been at the top of my list of things to do. In fact, it hasn't been on the list at all. My continuing heartache over the Yankees' elimination a few weeks ago has pretty much assured my obliviousness to this year's Fall classic. Anyone claiming that baseball is just a regional sport will get no argument out of me.
Unless, of course, you mention the name Albert Pujols. His 3 home run performance last night in Game 3 was enough to pique my interest in this series again. Maybe I'll watch Game 4! Well, maybe not. Anyway, it was cool that Pujols became the third player to hit three home runs in a World Series game. The last player to do it was, of course, Reggie Jackson. If you don't remember Reggie doing it back in 1977, or, you weren't alive yet, take a look at the video below, from the YES Network:
If memory serves, this was the game that earned Reggie that nickname: Mr October. The back page of today's New York Daily News channels Reggie with this tribute to Pujols:
Good job, Daily News and, congratulations, Sr Pujols.
