Hellooooo baseball fans, its time for the World Series! The only problem is, you're overseas and you can't find baseball on TV. Moreover, every time you try and ask someone about it they scoff at the use of the word "world" in the title of a championship that only includes teams from the United States instead of just pointing towards the nearest expat bar. Frustrating.
The good news is there are a lot of ways for you to stay up to date on the World Series no matter where you are. Here are some of my favorites:
Expat Bars: I usually try and stay out of expat bars for all but important occasions, but trust me; showing up to watch a major sporting event can be wicked fun. They're usually crowded with people who reserve all of their American patriotism for this moment.
"Official" Sites: Sites like ESPN stream the games but you generally have to be in the U.S. or using a proxy server to have access to the coverage.
"Unofficial" Sites: There are plenty of unofficial places you can go to watch the game (and movies, and TV shows) and you're probably already well acquainted with some of them. I've heard great reviews of first row sports you can also try and catch the game on ustream. In my experience the best sites get passed down like secret code from studyabroader to studyabroader so I'll only list these few for now and trust that your network of friends can do you one better.
Additional Analysis: If all of this is mute because you'll be in class during the games, but you still want to stay on top of what's going on, you're in luck. There are a whole host of websites dedicated to play by play analysis of the games. Check out MLB Game day, Baseball Reference, and Fan Graphs to name a few. ESPN and MLB also have some great apps for the ipod touch/iphone that work internationally. I have the ESPN one (also available for android by the way) and love it because the stats are constantly being updated and I can keep track of all of my favorite teams from different sports and from all over the world
