  1. Is this where we talk Pirates baseball?

  2. Holy Smokes-a thread for the World Series.

    I better go read Revelations again.

    DK: All three major pro sports championships have gotten threads for as long as I can recall.

    Let me know how this championship turns out.

  3. HI! :)

    If it’s baseball, I’m all ears!

    Rooting for the Sox – ONLY because Brian Butterfield’s (3rd base coach) sister is a friend.

    Hope you loonies are staying all warm & fuzzy – the “S”-Word is in the forecast!

    • Karen, you need an intervention.
      As of 2 weeks ago, baseball season ended.

      Tonight starts 7 games of media darlings and fawning.
      Spring training starts in about 120 days.


      • It ain’t over till it’s over, Mr. Plan!

        I loooove baseball.

        • Just funnin, Karen.

          I just have no interest in it, thats all.
          Hope you enjoy the games.
          Oh, and


  4. I really don’t like the Cardinals. But I just cannot bring myself to root for a team from Boston. Especially not the Red Sox. Especially not David Ortiz.

    If Tony LaRussa was still managing the Cardinals then I would definitely not pay one bit of attention to the series.

    I would rather watch that other sport – six letters, begins with S.

  5. Boston Strong in 6…….

    No really, the Cards win this one, but there’s a local kid on the Sox that I’d like to see do well, I heard he was a pretty good ball player.

    Can’t pronounce his name but his first name is Dustin, I think he’s the 2nd baseman.

  6. “Let me know how this championship turns out.”

    Let me know when the hockey playoffs start. I really hope the Penguins get in. :-)

  7. Excellent “Nature” on PBS about cross-species relationships.

  8. 3-0 Boston. The Sox already did more damage to Wainwright than we did in all of game 5 of the ALDS

  9. How about that catch by Beltran?

    He robbed Ortiz of a grand slam, which would have ended game one.

  10. Breaking news, everybody. The Cardinals defense reeks.

  11. Red Sox won game 1, but hold on, we have a young Cardinal pitcher who says that
    Boston pitcher was greasing up the ball with Vasollene. Of all the dumb statements to
    make, that is the dumbest. The Red Sox don’t need to use any substance on the ball to
    beat the crybaby Cardinals. In fact, I say they were lucky to beat the Pirates, who
    unfortunately forgot how to hit at the wrong time. We will have to work on that next
    season. GO,BUCS!!!
