Hey, Why Not, eh?


My Thoughts As Well 😉








Cardinals = Zombies?

Zombie-like resilience propels Cardinals

By Jeff Passan -Yahoo! Sports-

ST. LOUIS – “The Zombie Cardinals refuse to die. For months now, they have been punched, kicked, stabbed, shot, burned, garroted, blown up and eviscerated. They stand right back up and march on unabated. Nobody has found the formula to slay them.”



As a Fan of, BOTH, Baseball AND Zombies, this honestly struck me a bit more-so than most would have expected…

Including ME.




He Continues…

“They (Milwaukee Brewers), too, left the St. Louis Cardinals for dead in September, and what do the Brewers see now but 25 men in their full zombie glory, terrorizing their antagonists, the latest horror a 4-3 victory Wednesday in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series that gave St. Louis a 2-1 advantage with the next two games at Busch Stadium. The feast came quickly with a four-run first inning and ended with Jason Motte throwing 99-mph peas past Brewers bats rendered helpless in losing the last two games.”


“The Zombies, meanwhile, stroll along happy to recite the laundry list of things that tried unsuccessfully to slaughter their season. A week into spring training, ace Adam Wainwright blew out his elbow. Matt Holliday needed an appendectomy after game No. 1. Ryan Franklin blew four saves in the season’s first 2½ weeks. Albert Pujols broke a wrist. Center fielder Colby Rasmus left town in a controversial trade. David Freese suffered an ankle injury that general manager John Mozeliak said would be “season ending.” They fell nine games behind the Atlanta Braves in the wild-card race in September. They faced two win-or-go-home games in the NL Division Series.”


“Athletes love to talk about adversity. They can spin anything into adversity. Media doubts you? Adversity. Stub a toe? Crazy adversity. Couldn’t sleep on the plane? Adversity at 35,000 feet is the worst kind of adversity. Unless, of course, you get swimmer’s ear from the pool. Underwater adversity is the Boardwalk to all other adversities’ Mediterranean.  The Zombies know adversity. The real kind.”

Yeah, this was a rather enjoyable read.

How can you not love a sports writer who dishes out a “Baseball+Zombies” article around 2am’ish?


I Enjoyed It A Bundle, Also 😉

As Jack Would Have Said… “And That’s A Winner!”

Carp gives up 3 Earned in 5IP

Gallardo gives up 4 Earned in 5IP

Cards Win 4-3

The NLCS heads into Game 4, Tomorrow, Thursday@7:05pm (Central), with St. Louis UP 2-1.

Fine Game To Watch, Fo Sho, Folks.

I think I deserve a Hot Shower, and An Jolly-Good-Effort at Attempting Sleep.

If I make it before Midnight?

Yeah, I’ll be shocked, also 😉

Night Night, Peeps.


Step1: Get Blog …check. Step2: BLOG IT!

Okie Dokie, Folks…

This is a Blog about BASEBALL (Reality AND Fantasy), so let’s Blog a bit…

Tonight, The Baseball Universe witnessed The 1st Post-Season Meeting since 1982 between The Saint Louis Cardinals (My Boys!) and The Milwaukee Brewers.

Honestly, it was rather painful to watch.

It Started Great… 🙂

Then Went Crappy… 😦

Then Got Great Again… 😀

And THEN was Pretty Damn Crappy the Rest of the Way through :*(

As Fleet-Admiral-Obvious Tim McCarver would have likely said, “If your opponent scores as many runs in 1Inning as you did in 9Innings, it’s going to be difficult to win.” …or something of that sort.

Yeah, I know, I wanna Off-Myself Each AND Every Time that man has TheCall, also.

I think EVERY-LIVING-HUMAN (Baseball Fan OR Not) would feel that way having heard this man “work” over the past Couple DECADES 😦

In the end, The BrewCrew downed my RedBirds 9-6.

Game 2 will be happening October 10th @7:05pm, Live From Milwaukee.

Let’s just hope Game 2 is a bit easier to both Watch AND Stomach.

My Guys had best be steppin’ up BIG-TIME, as The Brewers are CrazyArseAWESOME while At Home.

HOWEVER, regardless of a Win OR Loss, I’m still SUPA-DUPA-STOKED I’m able to Witness and Enjoy another Post-Season-Meetin’ between these two clubs.

Either way it goes, TheNL-Central WILL BE Representin’ in The World Series!


I am, of course, pullin’ for My Cardinals, tho.

I wouldn’t be American were it otherwise, right?


More To Come On This, FO SHO FO SHO!

Until then…
