‘World’ Series! What rubbish. Where are the teams from Australia? Brazil? Any European nations represented here?

Good job, Braves. I remember watching the '95 parade from the fourth floor of Library South on the GSU campus.

And, Politik Kills, 29% of major leaguers are foreign born including 15 Astros and 7 Braves. So, yes, World Series is appropriate.

Long and short. The owner of the Pirates, then the number one team of one league, challenged the Red Sox, the number one team from the rival league, to participate in a “World Championship Series” between the two team. People were people and shortened the name overtime.

...and thus began the triggering of Brits for a century.

Congrats Atlanta. Fun Series. And after the clown baseball comish punished you for promoting statewide voting integrity just like the Constitution gives you the exclusive right to do, this win is doubly fine.

The Atlanta Braves were cheered by hundreds of thousands of fans

and WNBA's Chicago team that won the championship a few weeks back had a few dozen fans at the parade lol

People are complaining about the name World Series? Well, they don't know the history of the name.

And there are players from Australia, Europe, Brazil. And more than 20 other players from different countries.

Well done to them and to Atlanta.

Canada used to have a team, right?

Everyone realizes that the Brave's home stadium isn't in Atlanta. The ballpark is in Cumberland, GA, which isn't incorporated into a city to keep taxes lower. It is in Cobb county where about 800K people live.

Congrats to the Braves, and a raspberry to the whiners.

It's easier to con people than it is to convince them they've been conned.

How to grow up and think like an adult about professional team sports:

-- Well over $11 billion of taxpayer money has been spent the past 15 years on sports facilities for privately-owned teams. The taxpayers never got to vote on 75% of that.

-- The franchises always tout how much business and jobs will be created. Yeah, right. They're all minimum wage jobs.

-- A small number of people in the franchise make enormous amounts of money, and "fans" pour money out of their pocket directly into the pockets if management and people hitting a ball with a stick or running and kicking a ball.

-- This small number of people couldn't care less about the "community" or city. They'll move a the drop of a helmet for a better deal.

-- it's an incredible waste of time and money. You get nothing if these people win. They're not going to send money to the fans if they win.

American corporate 'baseball'? That's still a 'thing'. Well, considering the current state of America, people must be desperate to 'celebrate' SOMETHING...ANYTHING, even this meaningless dead cultural relic...

But it's a domestic competition. So how about calling it: US Series
