    As the World Series gets under way later tonight, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the "frienemies" that will develop between fans in this year's World Series.


    Hope you enjoy!

    Former MLB player Eric Karros called my article into question on Colin Cowherd's ESPN Radio show yesterday.

    He challenged me for a re-do: but here's my response.

    I assure you, it's not just a ridiculous personal attack, but it shows that Karros was off-base with his statements.
