Matt Carpenter was the Cardinal who Kicked Kershaw`s Ass yesterday...instead of our ace Adam Wainwright...as I bragged would happen yesterday. It shows what know: very little.
Wainwright got his ass kicked by hot Dodgers bats and rotten control of his fastball in Game 1 of the NLDS. Wainwright was quoted postgame, "I stunk." Both aces, both 20-game winners this year,
both heinies: whipped. Some days a guy just can`t get off that stool.
It was a classic ballgame. Tense...brawls about to boil...seesaws. A camera showed a little Dodger kid crossing himself, rapid fire, asking Jesus to save his stars. It didn`t work with Jesus this game...my holding my breath on the couch whipped that Holy Crossing... for my Cardinals to win instead. I may ask Jesus for Game 2...tonight as Lance Lynn starts for the Cards.
I want to tie-in (2) Fall Classics here...I just remembered what I was thinking to blog(my web man says I must do it to stay alive in this shark puddle)...Telluride is bluebell clear today@ 55 degrees right now, whitecapped up top, green and gold pouring below. Fall postcards don`t come close to this Telluride day...it can`t be copied.
I may call Jesus though to copy that Cardinals win yesterday..for tonight. That little Dodger kid will be making his Crosses...wherever he is for Game 2.
