When Theriot struck out in the 9th, FanGraphs had the Cardinals chances of winning at 4.7%. Pretty incredible.

    It was just a blur - both times they tied it, but especially the home run to center. The stands turned into a rave, everyone jumping up and down, the girls in red wigs two rows down crying - CRYING - and that was just Freese's hit in the bottom of the ninth.

    Everyone was floating walking out of the ballpark, and the only thing that makes me happier than the memories is that I get to go again tonight. My god.

I'm not sure there is a happier place on earth than a baseball stadium when the home team wins via walk-off in a World Series game.

Tim McCarver makes these games almost unwatchable. I can not stand this guy.

I have 100 Internet points for anyone who can provide a .gif of Nolan Ryan's expression shown during the broadcast of the top of the ninth.

WHAT A SERIES. The Cardinals absolutely earned their 11th world championship, and made a damn strong case for why baseball (Ray) is the best sport in the world.

Great series, especially Game 6. Game 6 was like a comedy of what NOT to do in a Baseball game (example; getting picked off at the catcher....and spraining your wrist in the process), quickly turning into "this is what Baseball should be".

Waiting for PeterStork to recover so we can find out what it was like in the stadium.

Congrats to the Cardinals and their fans.

Ron Washington made some bad, bad, BAD managing decisions, but a good chunk of them came AFTER his closer couldn't lock up the championship. Not much he could have done about that.

I'm happy for Furcal.

Paul Allen just announced on KFAn that he got an e-mail from a friend of the family that Harmon passed away this morning in hospice care in Arizona. Wow.
