As Michael discussed at Baseball is Fun, the Cardinals were last night the beneficiary of one those delightful, admittedly incredible baseball sideshow moments.
With the Cardinals trailing the Royals by a run in the sixth inning, with the bases loaded, two outs, and Yadier Molina at the plate, play was stopped because a kitten had run onto the field. Naturally, after the kitten was corralled, Molina hit a grand slam, and the Cardinals won the game.
Thus, The Rally Cat was born, and the story blew up around the baseball-related world. People immediately loved that cat.
And his dramatic legacy lasted … about 45 minutes:

You … lost the cat? If someone shoves a golden horseshoe up your butt, you don’t fart it out on the train and forget about it.
If this does not descend upon the Cardinals a one-hundred-year curse of the most wrathful vengeance, then truly, the Cardinals Voodoo Magic is alive and well, and completely invulnerable to cosmic intervention.
In all seriousness, I am an unabashed cat lover, so I hope somebody finds that cat and cares for it more dearly than the Cardinals and the random fan managed last night.
