If a World Series took place in the woods? Would it make noise?
Posted 23 October 2011 - 10:35 AM
Really....it's amazing how far the Series has dropped in the Sporting World...you are more likely to see the 59th replay of Michigan States' hail mary victory over Wisconsin than Pujols 3 homeruns.
So to all you snooty "Now Theriot knows what it's like to win" Cardinal fans...the hard truth: more people in baseball are interested in our new president than in this World Series. This is the lowest rated series so far since 1987, when the Twins played somebody, oh I can't remember...oh, that's right...The Cards.
Yes I respect the organization. Stan Musial is one of my favorites of all time. I think Dave Duncan is the true genius behind the magical Tony LaRussa. I do though still think Pujols needs to pee in a cup.
But the bottom line is for all your on the field dominance over the Cubs(and you have, I will give you that) you are still an afterthought on the big stage. Nobody cares other than you. Which is probably fine with most of you in Missoura. Just realize that if the Cubs ever do get consistent and start winning, you will be an even bigger afterthought, like the White Sox.
So I won't mind if you win, I won't mind seeing Nolan Ryan, Ron Washington and George W. Bush upset, and hey, if you win, you might be a bit more relevant.

But, it makes me a bit sad about the state of the sport, overall. Interest is at a multi-decade low.
I guess that makes it an even better time for a banner franchise like the Cubs to turn things around and become a perennial success.

And let me give a particular yes to this:
Respect. Whenever I hear somebody say, "[Blank's] the man," my inner dialog is, "No, there's only one 'the man', and it's Stan the Man."
Stan Musial is one of my favorites of all time.
