Every World Series winner since 2000 battles it out.

The premise sounds good. The intro is a little depressing.

In the next 10 days, we will crown the 16th World Series champion of the Aughts. (Note that this is not the 16th champion of the century; we must pedantically remind you that the new century did not start until January 1, 2001.)

This means four things:
1) You are old.
2) Life is passing you by at a pace that will grow more rapid and more depressing as the years go by.
3) Your existence is thus finite and should be savored at every opportunity.
4) There are enough Aughts champions that we can now make a bracket!
