As WEEZER Sang… “IT’s In The PHOTOGRAPH…”

Wow! What About THAT Guy! Wonder If It Was a 3-Game-SWEEP??!?!?!

I Really REALLY Hope He Stayed Long Enough For a Hot-Dog and a Beer!

Lord Only Knows, Right?!

Oh…

…Wait…

…Uh…

…Hmm…

…Suppose That’s a Bit of a Pun…

…I Suppose.

(???)

šŸ˜‰

Yeah… Well… I Ain’t Ready To Call It “A Season”… yet.

Pujols decision can wait for Cardinals

(Pieces Of The Article) By R.B. FALLSTROM, AP Sports Writer —

Albert PujolsĀ tried to give away nothing during the celebration, tried to stay in the moment. But what a moment it was.

Getting another taste of that championship feeling surely will tip the scales in favor of theĀ St. Louis CardinalsĀ at least a little bit when it comes time to talk contract.

ā€œObviously, right now a lot of things go through my head and thinking about the whole season,ā€ Pujols said at the podium after the Cardinals won their 11th World Series.

ā€œProbably like two or three weeks from now, thatā€™s when Iā€™m really going to be sitting down and saying, ā€˜Wow, where we were, and now weā€™re the 2011 World Champions.ā€™ Itā€™s unbelievable.ā€

What remained of Friday after the Cardinals finished off theĀ Texas RangersĀ in Game 7 was for savoring one of the most unlikely comebacks in major league history. Hundreds of fans peacefully roamed the downtown streets well into the night.

ā€œTruly a dream come true,ā€ manager Tony La Russa said. ā€œItā€™s hard to really imagine it actually happened.ā€

On Sunday, the team will bask in adulation once again with a victory parade scheduled for late afternoon. In 2006, the team estimated between 300,000 and a half-milllion people lined the streets.

Five players remain from 2006, when the Cardinals backed into the postseason as an 83-win team and then got hot when key players got healthy. Pujols,Ā Yadier Molina,Ā Skip Schumaker,Ā andĀ Chris CarpenterĀ andĀ Adam WainwrightĀ remain from that team, which also was lightly regarded.

Canā€™t top 2011.

ā€œThis team is unbelievable,ā€ Carpenter said after beating the Rangers for the second time. ā€œMost amazing team Iā€™ve ever been a part of.ā€—

 

 

Yeah. I Think We’ll Take That.

Nice Way To Make It All Official.

Following Sunday’s Parade, I Suppose We’ll Have To Call It “A Season”.

It’s Going To Be A Damn Loooooooooooong, Coooooooooooooooooold, Winter.

However, I Do SOOOOOOOOO Love Spring-Time In The Midwest.

I’m Already Looking Forward To MANY MANY MANY Rounds of Mock-Drafting InĀ Preparation For The Ole 2012 Campaign.

I Do Promise To Not Stay Away Tooooo Long, Tho.

How Would The Baseball World Function Without Me?

Parrish The Thought, Eh!?!?!

EXACTLY MY POINT!

ST. LOUIS (AP)— The St. Louis CardinalsĀ won a remarkable World Series they werenā€™t even supposed to reach, beating The Texas RangersĀ Ā 6-2 in Game 7 on Friday night with another key hit by hometown star David FreeseĀ and six gutsy innings from Chris Carpenter.

A day after an epic Game 6 that saw them twice within one strike of elimination before winning 10-9 in the 11th inning, the Cardinals captured their 11th World Series crown. —
