Sorry, Astros fans. Your team played valiantly, but the Cards are the team this year. I predict they will beat the Red Sox like yard dogs.
Tonight, I have no animosity for the losing team and feel no schadenfreude at their loss. Last night was much different. I made sure to watch the celebration long enough to see unhappy Yankee faces. Joe Torre looking distraught, check. Jeter’s top lip quivering, check. That I really got into. I like it when my team wins, and I like it when the Yankees lose.
