Baseball Season: A Fairy Tale

Once upon a time in the great city of St. Louis, there lived and played a wonderful baseball team called the St. Louis Cardinals. During the regular season - and the first two series of the postseason - Cardinal batters were feared and mighty. Those days are gone.

Sigh. That's where I've been. Sitting in front of the TV with my Propel on one side and crochet materials on the other. And until the last three games, it's been a treat.

But all Fairy Tales must come to an end. When, as a fan, you turn off the TV in top of the 7th and consider making other plans for the night of game 4 (tomorrow), your hope is lost.

I'll not boo hoo on your reading time any longer.

Famous, Famous I Tell You

So, last week the flummoxed St. Louis Blues picked up aging (not maturing) left winger (no, wait, he's listed as a center now. Boggle.) Pascal Rheaume. Again.

Here's a bit of my e-mail to Jeff Gordon, talented local sportswriter. He published me. I'm published! Oh, wait, I do that publishing thing every day, don't I?
My reaction on hearing the (Rheaume) news from KMOX was maniacal laughter while rounding the corner of Marine and McKelvey. And that's dangerous while driving, by the way. The Blues are environmentally conscious with all of this recycling . . . you know that old saying about history and doom.
Yes, folks, here it is. And, here it is (about halfway down the page).

Just like Rheaume. Here he was 5 years ago, and here he is again. The Blues have this retro theme this year, maybe 50s or so? The players are playing as if they were born then.

Packers Win!

Not that _I_ really care about the Packers winning, but my esteemed spouse is obviously quite thrilled.

Game on.
