Default It seems to me . . .

that it's high time somebody started blowing the Cardinals' horn around here! Holy cow - these guys were counted out completely as recently as last month. Now they've won the first game of the World Series! Are any of you awake?!
LaRussa's bullpen strikes again!

I'm not the sports fan around here, but I DO like the World Series, when the Cards are in it .... I WAS surprised no one had posted anything on here yet .... THANKS, SHANNY!!!
They sure didn't seem to make many mistakes last night, 'course Texas didn't either; I sure liked that sliding, last second tag the pitcher (Carpenter?) made right in the first few minutes! That surely helped set the tone for the game. Of course, the same could be said for that Texas outfielder who made the sliding try at the right baseline fly ball - his face in the last second when he'd realized his butt had scooped up too much sand, and he was gonna come up a few inches short was PRICELESS! LOL

Carpenter came WAY too close to getting his pitching arm spiked on that play . . . actually had a laceration. But wow - WHATTA play!

LaRussa has invented a whole new way of using his bullpen . . . so far it's working VERY WELL! He has some awesome pitchers back there & knows exactly when to use 'em. Let's just hope they hold up.

Yup - made it home. Just wishing they'd play ball and forget about the pre-game stuff .... I could care less about all that.

Game 1's opening ceremony was pretty cool with 150 Fort Leonard Wood soldiers unfurling the U.S.flag. and they got to see the game for free, too.

We're relieved that Jaime Garcia is coming on so well for his first World Series; none of those Ranger batters have ever faced him . . . that's quite an edge!
