The excitement is beyond believable. What will happen in this best-of-seven series? Can either the Orioles or the Royals keep playing the level of baseball they displayed in their respective sweeps?
Like most of you, I have no clue. I'm just thinking it's going to a great League Championship Series between two teams that are starving for another trip to the World Series.
I'm not going to make any predictions except that the team that wins four games will represent the American League in the big show. Sorry.
Anyway, baseball is not the only thing happening around here. Back to football. Aberdeen and Bel Air are the two remaining unbeatens. Havre de Grace was poised to join them, until North Harford scored 15 unanswered points in the game's final few minutes.
Bel Air will visit Havre de Grace this Friday in what is a big game for both. Not just because of the UCBAC divisional play, but with five weeks in the books, it's time to start keeping an eye on regional playoff possibilities.
Entering week six, both the Bobcats and Warriors are in the top four of their respective classifications. Havre de Grace is on top of Class 1A East standings, while Bel Air is second behind Aberdeen in 3A North.
Just those three are in position to reach the playoffs, but there are five more games for each.
