The 2012 World Series begins at 8pm on Wednesday night, and while I'm thrilled that the Yankees and Cardinals can't possibly win a championship this season, I'm not really sure I care enough about either the Giants or the Tigers to have a rooting interest in this year's Fall Classic. This is a mixed bag, emotionally, because while another Yankees title would have made me baby-punching angry, when I can't root for the Mets I throw all my weight behind whoever happens to be playing the Yanks.
A World Series without a clear personal favorite is a World Series with a little less excitement, and while I might normally just root for any National League team who doesn't hail from the NL East, knowing the Giants just won a title two years ago makes me at least a tad reluctant to root for them over the Tigers, who lost in the World Series to the Cardinals in 2006 but haven't won a title since 1984.
What about you? Giants or Tigers, and explain why in the comments.
