Congratulations, St. Louis

Way to go. That was a great game. If it hadn’t been for that miraculous catch by Chavez, this game would have been closer to the cakewalk I wanted.

I found out from my buddy Richard in IM that I’m 3 degrees from Adam Wainwright, the Cards’ closer and the man on the mound when they won. Richard is friends with Wainwright’s brother. I didn’t even have to use all 6 to get there!

I’m looking forward to this World Series. Give the 8 teams in the post-season, these are the two I wanted in it so I have no complaints. I don’t know that I have an actual favorite this year. I almost always root for the NL team (unless it is the Mets) but I’m partial to the Tigers. I love Cinderella stories, and I love worst-to-first stories (such as, say the 1991 World Series.)

    I think I’ll pull for the Cards – Adam Wainwright graduated from my High School – Glynn Academy in Brunswick GA (a mere 24 years after graduated)…

    According to Richard, Adam would have played for Georgia Tech if he hadn’t been drafted by the Braves out of high school.
