Who Won the Week — 10/24/2021

The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

I was really looking forward to this week’s edition of Who Won the Week. My plan was to name the Boston Red Sox as the winner of the American League (baseball) championship, who would be playing in the World Series against the National League champs, the San Francisco Giants.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. The Giants were eliminated early on by losing the National League divisional playoff to the Los Angeles Dodgers. But the Red Sox prevailed in their series against the Tampa Bay Rays to live another day. But the Sox were eliminated by losing the AL championship series to the Houston Astros and the Dodgers were shocked by the surprising Atlanta Braves in the NL championship series.

So my winners this week are the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves, who will face each other in Major League Baseball’s World Series starting this coming Friday.

Who am I going to be rooting for to win the World Series? Quite honestly, with the Red Sox and the Giants out of it, I couldn’t care less.

What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
