I’m Off to St. Louis!
As I write this, the Mets are crushing the Cardinals 11-1 in the seventh. It’s actually kind of a relief that it’s not a nail biter, because I’ve got to be at the airport at six o’clock in the morning. So if the lead holds (ha!), the Cards will have split the series. The three game set with the Cubs could be huge. I can’t wait!
Funny thing about my flight. It leaves here and connects in Chicago, before finally arriving in St. Louis at one. It’s not really my idea of a good time, so I’ll have to make the best of it. I figure maybe if I deck myself out in Cards gear, I’ll have a decent chance of getting into it with some Cubs fans during my layover. Whether I end up in a bar brawl or just do a little smack talking with the Cubbie faithful, I should have a nice story to share when I get back on Tuesday.
I’ll be sure to take a ton of pictures from the games, and will share them with everyone next week, assuming I don’t die of alcohol poisoning. Wish me luck!
In the meantime, you can still get your Cardinals fix from some of the other blogs listed in my blogroll.
