In other news…the stunning collapse of the Cardinals was…depressing.  It would have been nice if one of the many players on that team had remembered how to hit a baseball…or catch one…or pitch one. 

However, I will trade an Obama victory for a Cardinals loss.  Because I love America.  I will now drink to Obama’s win and the Cardinals pitiful misery.  It’s great how alcohol works that way.

"From then on, you couldn’t breathe. We’d crossed the plane of reality to some screenwriter’s fantasy, a script so implausible that no one would ever greenlight it."

A great, great piece about game 6.  Let’s hope game 7 is worth its predecessor.

"Pujols produced one of the greatest nights a hitter has ever had in the World Series. He went 5 for 6 with three homers and six runs batted in, leading the Cardinals to a 16-7 rout of Texas in Game 3 at Rangers Ballpark. Paul Molitor is the only player besides Pujols to have five hits in a World Series game, and Pujols set a record for total bases, with 14."

Albert Pujols, ladies and gentlemen.  My hero.
