Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals
On a lighter note, I think that kudos are due to the St. Louis Cardinals, who looked like they were out of the running to even make the playoffs. They pulled themselves together in August and September, securing the wild-card berth at the end of the regular season. They then proceeded to eliminate in the playoffs the best record in baseball-Philadelphia Phillies and the powerhouse Milwaukee Brewers to advance to the World Series as National League Champions. I wish them well. They demonstrated what a team can do when they apply themselves to reach a goal, and their performance was indicative of a group that truly deserves to be where they are. They showed tremendous spirit and perseverance.
