They said it couldn't be done

Above: Guess what this is.

Nobody gave St. Louis much of a chance to advance past the Philadelphia Phillies. Yes, the Phillies are considered the best team in baseball, but in a five-game series, anything can happen.

I heard Mike Shannon say (on the radio) that anyone who has not been to a playoff game in St. Louis doesn't know what they are missing.

Guess who will use the ticket (shown above) to go to the St. Louis Cardinals' first home game of the NLCS next Wednesday?


  1. I'm thinking a Brew-crew vs Rangers WS. Here's hoping for me anyway.

  2. The retiree committee has determined you are have experienced TDMF. (too damn much fun) The only cure would be to have you report to a new salt mine as soon as our next whips and chains shipment arrives.

  5. Yeah! Good for you! I hope you have the time of your life!

  6. I was raised a Cardinal fan. Although I no longer follow baseball, I nevertheless get a little thrill when they do well. Have fun at the game.

  7. @TenMile: LOL

    @Birdman: I like Milwaukee, too, and won't be too disappointed if they advance to the World Series.

    @KenP: Retirement is working for me

    @Jacob: I don't know who will win, but I do know I'll have fun.

    @bastin: Once a Cardinals' fan, always a Cards' fan.

  8. Congrats and I'm happy your team is through and you have tickets.
    That being said, I don't know about the "they said it couldn't be done" part. Here was a preview that suggested StL would win (with supporting arguments):

    even in retrospect worth a read

  9. Cards vs Brew Crew. I think I'm gonna throw up in my mouth. Yuck!

  10. I hope you are relaxing, resting, fixing up cameras, cleaning lenses, charging batteries ... you know, getting ready for next Wednesday!

  11. I was not aware that one could go to college and major in restoring old homes. That sounds a little fishy, but then, these days, who knows?

    Lot of restoring going on, though. Might be a good field to get into.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
