Last night's game was amazing. It ended with a 3-run Renteria homer in the ninth inning. Yesterday, of course, was the same day legendary Cardinal Shortstop Ozzie Smith was inducted into the hall of fame -- prompting ESPN broadcaster John Miller to yell "Go crazy, folks, go crazy" when Renteria smacked it.

This mirrored Jack Buck's famous call of a Smith 3-run homerun that won game five of the 1985 NLCS playoffs. Said Smith homerun and Buck's call just happens to be my favorite cardinal memory. And Miller provided a fitting tribute. Just thought I'd share. Anyone else see the game?

Yes. I am never watching baseball again. I detest all that the Cubs stand for.

They can't lose today, anyway. God, I HATE being a Cubs fan.

Even if I had been up to see the ending, I would have been watching something else. I thought the game was going to stay a blow-out, as it was the few times I surfed over during the commercials on Alias.

There is something cool about a team winning on a day when one of their HOF players gets inducted.

Smith's shot was a solo homerun, and yes the game was awesome. I kept wanting to turn it off, but told myself "No, they can comeback, they can do it," and sure enough, they did.

Ah! You got me! That's what was nagging me when I typed the whole thing out. Grrr. My parents would be ashamed of me, as I was born and raised in St. Louis and I still consider it home. :)

As a bitter White Sox fan who is busy watching his team go into yet another "rebuilding" mode, watching the hated Cubbies blow 2 huge leads during that game brought me a small amount of joy.



You never know when you'll meet that special someone... the someone that's mysteriously blind to your flaws. or, you know, stupid enough not to realize that yes, you really are that cynical.

Yeah, that's strike two for Bruce Kimm for me. The 1st was messing up the double-switch where he had to pull Sosa (although I cut him slack for that one). But pulling Clement in the 6th after 82 pitches? The honeymoon may be over already...
