Tonight, the World Series begins featuring the even-year mainstays, San Francisco Giants taking on the ultimate underdogs, Kansas City Royals. And to get you ready for the inaugural game of 2014 will be some of the normal MLB FOX faces like Kevin Burkhardt, Gabe Kapler, and Frank Thomas.
In a little less than a month, you’ll sit down with the family you love, the family you love to hate, and the family you have a love/hate relationship with and commence in an annual Thanksgiving dinner.
