Victory in St. Petersburg

WOO! Great news! The Red Sox One! ... And Tampa Three!

I pulled this on a coworker before noticing he was brandishing scissors. =) Anyway, Tampa earned and deserved this win, although they should have been drinking champagne after Game Five.

Now we have the Phillies and the Rays in the World Series. My questions are these: Will the television ratings be as bad as they were in 2006 with the Cardinals and the Tigers? What would the ratings have been like if we had the Red Sox and Dodgers? And why does the final round of any playoff usually seem less interesting than the opening rounds?
