Here's one guy with Montgomery ties who will be in anguish over the World Series. Start your pity now.
Brad Tillery, the former Biscuits intern and BTW Magnet/Auburn University graduate best known for his awful "water sprinkler" on-field dance move (representation at left, though it's not Tillery), is a huge Colorado Rockies fan. He used to live in Denver and grew to love the Rox.
Tillery is now the radio voice of the Lansing Lugnuts. He's exiled to the press box, which saves fans from viewing any more of those moves (representation also at left).
I'll say Red Sox in five, which will please Tillery's boss. Lansing general manager Pat Day , formerly an assistant GM with the Biscuits, is a Boston fan. He doesn't show it as much as Tillery.
Of course, Tillery has his own prediction.
And the major-league umpire with Alabama ties drew a World Series assignment. Chuck Meriwether graduated from Athens State. Meriwether works third base tonight and will have the plate for Game 4. He's a 16-year major-leaguer and has one previous World Series (2004).
