Learn it, know it, and don’t feel one bit bad that you are feeling it right now.
The big, bad, Philadelphia Phillies with their “Phantastic Four” and most wins in baseball couldn’t even advance out of the first round of the playoffs. Beaten, shutout and blanked by the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 on Friday night. Oh, and Philly favorite Ryan Howard might have torn his Achilles tendon. Karma is an absolutely beautiful thing. Seriously, I am thinking of becoming a Buddhist thanks to it. It couldn’t have happened to a better team.
I am going to go as far as to say it completely negates any sort of bad feelings I might have that Phoney Boloney Plush actually produced a meaningful hit to put the Brew Crew one step closer to the World Series (video here complete with Nyjer dropping F-Bomb in post-game). You know, what? Good for him. Enjoy it while he can because I’m pretty sure St. Louis is absolutely jacked to the point no one is stopping them now. I’m going to predict a St. Louis/Detroit World Series even though the idea of a Texas/Milwaukee WS is sort of tempting just so I can see how those amateurs over at ESPN handle it. They would go freaking nuts considering no one of much glorified substance is on the Rangers or Brewers and all of Bristol’s meal tickets have been eliminated.
Look at me, I’m ranting and it is college football day.
I apologize. I’ve had a huge week: sold my car, had a son, nailed a big job interview, my subscription to Sports Illustrated kicked in, the world is completely overacting again to something Bryce Harper did and the god damned Philadelphia Phillies face planted.
I really don’t know how life can get any better.
EDITOR’S PERSONAL NOTE: I want to thank everyone for all the well wishes, congrats, messages, flowers, etc. concerning the birth of my son on October 4th. The family is home happy, healthy and safe. He is a handsome lad which I hope to groom to one day either be a Jedi or a Nationals lefty specialist. As for the business of this blog, I am taking a few days to adjust to the new arrival so posting here and on Twitter will be scarce, but I am hoping Monday or Tuesday I will be back on the beat.
Again, thanks for all the kind words and messages and all your support.
