I've been checking in with my usual Twins blogs over the past week and a half since we lost our playoff chances. I like to stay up to date on what the Twins community thinks about their team.
This evening, as I was checking in, it occurred to me that I had no idea what was happening in the ALCS/NLCS games. I had paid just enough attention to know who was in it, but short of that, I didn't know how many games had been played, what the series were at, etc.
I live in Chicago, so I had my fair share of entertainment in the ALDS/NLDS watching the Cubbies and Sox self-destruct, but after the Sox were out, I stopped caring. Is my lack of interest in this year's playoffs due to the Twins being out of it? Perhaps it's because there are no teams left that are geographically close to me? Maybe it's because I have a vested interest in the AL Central and with the Sox out, don't care?
So my question to you is this: How closely are YOU watching the playoffs this year?
