Reason Number 27 - Major League Baseball Season

Reason number twenty-seven, which is not even one fifth of the season, is Major League Baseball.  Now I fully realize this may not be the most popular of reasons September is amazing, but nonetheless if we had a baseball team in Portland or if you had a tie to a team that was on the verge of the playoffs this surely would be exciting.  Baseball is a different game all together, included in this is the fact MLB teams play 162 games in the regular season.  When you really sit down and think about it that is pretty crazy, but what is even crazier is that at the end of September teams face off in division playoff series to determine who played 162 games for nothing and who played for a shot at the crown.  You would think the disparity between teams respective records over a 162 game season would be pretty evident at this point, but with five games to play teams are often a ½ to 2 games back of playing into October or playing golf.  So in the end, September means a lot to those who play baseball, those who aspire to make it to the SHOW, and for those who respect a game that has the longest schedule of any professional sport.
