We Win!!

Do I much care for the baseball? No. Only Cardinals baseball. The greatest team in the history of the Majors are returning to the World Series (where, chances are, they'll get chewed up by Detroit). But a seven-game win over New York? We'll take it. Though it must be said--that Endy Chavez catch was OFF THE CHAIN (and before we get too impressed, let's not sleep on the throw that got the additional out). Between that and Rolen deciding to hurl that grounder all the way to Islip, I was pretty sure that the momentum had turned. But Suppan got them out, and Molina stepped up. We're so happy. I'm quite sure Will Leitch over at Deadspin is in the throes of catharsis, so go wish him the best.

And remember, no matter who wins the World Series, any league that allows designated hitters cannot really be considered American.

Yeah, I had a lot of fun watching that. It's nice when your team's vaunted power hitters CAN'T SWING AT THE FUCKING BALL!

Go Tigers.
