Another Baseball Season Comes to an End

Well, at least it's true for most of MLB's thirty teams and it is true for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Last night the Cubs eliminated the Cardinals from post-season play as they move on to the National League Championship Series against either the Mets or the Dodgers. It's been 70 years since the Cubs have made a World Series appearance and more than a century since they have celebrated a World Series Championship.

I can't say that I'm really sad that the Cards are out of it. In fact, it is really amazing that they managed to do as well as they did this season. Being eliminated by the Cubs is a little tough to take, but it is how the quirks of the game go.

I'll continue to follow the remaining postseason games, but with a little less enthusiasm. And I'll be fine with the Cubs winning it all for all of the faithful family members and friends that have been waiting for such a moment.

In the end, the World Series winner will have very little impact on my life.
I'm sure that I'll have to put up with a little more grief if the Cubs or Royals win, but still--nothing that will have much of an impact on the day-to-day happenings of life. I didn't make nor lose anything from the Cardinal division win nor the series loss.

I'll watch a little Blues hockey in the off season and follow the winter baseball talks and off season signings of players. In a way, I suppose that the off season is good for the fans, too -- a time to rest and recover and get ready for next year.

I did watch a few minutes of the Democratic candidates' debate last night, but then switched the channel to watch the Mets and Dodgers play game four of their series to a series tie. It was far more interesting than the debate.

Today looks like another beautiful day in the Ozarks and we have plans to spend it with friends on a short day trip. It's mid-week for you working folks so enjoy the second half of the week.

You win some games and you lose some games; some games get rained out.
But you dress for them all, 'cause you're in the Big Leagues!  --

I'm sorry the Cardinals didn't make it too!
