Go Cardinals!

October 26, 2006

Journal, Lloyd

Those birds are amazing -beating tigers and all. My brother and sister-in-law were at tonight’s game. Twenty rows (and thirty feet towards left field) behind home plate.

By the way – Happy Birthday, Bethany! I should have posted that earlier!


I don’t really have much to say about the World Series games. Most of the Cardinal fans I talked to were, “Just hoping we don’t get swept.” So it was really a fun series (but then, the whole playoffs were good if you happened to be a Cardinals fan). And the Tigers have pitchers to blame, so they don’t have to feel bad about the whole mess.

But, and I say this with nothing but caring in my heart, Fox Sports Suck. Watching the broadcasts made me wish they (and by they I mean anyone who has ever in any way been associated with Fox Sports) were dead. They missed pitches, showed interviews on the screen while showing at-bats in little picture-in-picture windows, never showed enough of the field to get a sense of the game, jumped from head shot to head shot (Pitcher, Hitter, Manager, Pitcher, Catcher, Hitter, Owner, Other Manager, Then the pitch). I hate them.

    From the comforts of my own home, I was right behind the mound for most of the game!

    I’m a little disappointed that Lloyd has not already put a post up in celebration of those beloved Cardinals. You’re slackin’ Lloyd.
