Cards Lose Ugly…Again…

Watching these last few games has been stressful. My stomach churns the way it usually does in the playoffs when we stop hitting.  After seeing Ponson give up 6 runs and look sweatier than Elvis during his Aloha from Hawaii Via Satellite special, I turned the TV off and went to dinner.  Over a delicious St. Louis style pizza at Ponticello’s, I declared to my dad that I had pretty much given up hope on the Cards this year.  I didn’t really mean it, but I was feeling dejected.  I just couldnt reconcile how a team that had started so hot, and kept up the heat when their star player was out, could collapse and begin to look just like their lowly cross-state opponents.  After dinner, I was surprised to hear the score was 6-5, and the Cards were coming back.  Then Jimmy hit that homer, and I really felt a lift.  Then we somehow failed to score a run after having runners on 1st and 3rd with no outs.  I was then sure we’d lose, and we did – you’d dont get another chance after fouling up that, er, royally.
