baseball fanatic...


I'm very ambivalent when it comes to the post-season, especially this year. You see some of the most exciting games of the year during the post-season (the Detroit ALCS win, for example), but it also means the end of baseball for another year.
I love baseball...have since I was a kid. I'd watch games with my dad, quality time. I can remember sitting next to him on the couch watching the game, wearing our matching Cardinals t-shirts. He'd take me to as many games as he could, and I'd stuff myself with hotdogs and nachos, cheering whenever my dad did. I loved the entire atmosphere of the ballpark, even as a kid. I liked the smells and the people. Everything about baseball appealed to me.
Still does.
While I love seeing my Cards in the championship, I'm disappointed baseball will be over soon. I'm going to miss it.
But...Let's go, Cardi-nals!

Oh, what a difference a couple of weeks makes. A little over two weeks ago, your Cardinals almost blew a seemingly insurmountable lead. The Tigers had blown their division by being swept by the Royals. Both teams were obviously going nowhere in the playoffs. My Twins, on the other hand, were on top of the world after having made an incredible comeback to win the American League West. Now, there was a team with potential!

Three games later, my Twins were toast, and now the Tigers are in the series, and your Cardinals are only two wins away.

The Cards are in the series! But A.T., you have not made me feel better. There's always next year? Sure there is--162 games during April, May, June, July, August, and September. And if you survive that, you make it to the playoffs. And then...... Three bad days and you're history! Yikes!!!

I tried, Dennis.

I suppose "there's always next year" only works on Cubs fans, huh?

Congrats on your cards. I tried rooting for them, but my "Astros-fanatic" side just couldn't let me. It's get'em next year for us.
