So tonight is Kris's book club, so I was looking for something to watch on tv and the MLB world series video was on sale on Apple tv.  I bought.

Is it as good as the Series?  Naw.  Is it pretty good?  If you get through that without either joy or tears or both, I'll buy the beer.  But you'll have to drink it on your own because I surely don't want anything to do with you.

I still get misty-eyed watching replays at certain points.

Thanks, Neil. It hadn't occurred to me to search for this. Since we no longer bother hooking up a DVD player to the TV (and don't own a BlueRay), I wasn't sure whether to buy a copy or not. But we have Apple TV, so that's perfect.

Now, I just have to decide whether to rent it or buy it...

I think it was $3.99 to rent, $9.99 to buy.  I suspect I'll watch it again, so I'm glad I bought.

Is it Beta or VHS? If you have the superior technology of the Beta system, I would like a copy too, please.

Well my ship finally came in, a variety of shirts and other items.  A little disappointed that the handle of the coffee mug was broken but wtf, I can always get another one.  Guess who is the best dressed Astros fan in Murrin Murrin this week?

Have any of you that ordered something post-Series from SI actually received it? I ordered the issue just after the WS ended and have not rec'd it nor do they respond to any inquiries at their "Customer Service" phone. There is a reason I put Customer Service in quotes as it is a fucking joke. I have also written to their "Customer Service" email and they don't respond.  I suspect they farm all of this out to a 4th World Country. Just wondering if anyone has actually rec'd what you paid for. I will stick a fork in my eye before buying anything from jokers again.

My World Series magazine, the 2014 magazine, and print of the 2014 cover, came last week.

I received the 2014 reprint but am waiting on another order.

We ordered the WS issue and the 2014 reprint during the week after the WS and received both within a couple of weeks. I'm beginning to think we got unusually lucky.

Perth Heat 2 - 0 in games when I wear my new JV shirt, so that's pretty good.

I got 2 WS Champs hoddies just in time for the freeze.  Also a sweet cap and another tee.  I guess I was good this year.

I finally got my WS Documentary Bluray/DVD combo. I ordered it on 11/2 when obviously it hadn't been created yet so it's nice to finally have it.

A nice feature is the ability to download a digital copy to play on your computer, phone or tablet.

I saw one set that included the games on dvd. Was that what you got?

No. Talking about the documentary MLB did. One BluRay or DVD.
