RUSH LIMBAUGH: You know sports has always been culturally an escape. It has been a way for people to escape the hum drum of the everyday life that they have. It's a three hour -- or now depending on the game you watch, a three-and-a-half hour -- escape from reality. But in recent times, sports has really not offered a full escape because we've had to sit through lectures from sports commentators on gun control and gay marriage and civil rights and all of that. But this World Series -- I have to tell you from top to bottom -- was a wonderful escape just like sports should be. There were no lectures between innings or in the pregame or post-game by vaunted sports commentators lecturing America on how they were misbehaving or not thinking the right way. Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen. Unlike the Super Bowl there wasn't a pre-series interview with Obama, and he didn't put on a pair of mom jeans and go out there and throw out the first pitch looking like a girl. He wasn't anywhere near it. It was baseball. And it was incredibly exciting baseball. And look, I don't want to put too much on this. I mean I didsports, as I say, it's an escape from reality and I don't want to attach too much to this. But you know I am an observer, a quite keen observer of things cultural and social and political. The Royals won this World Series because they trust their players.
