Fair Weather Fan

I'm first to admit that I'm a total fair weather Cardinals fan. It's not that I follow another team or another sport until the Cards start doing well. It's just that I generally don't give a rip about sports.

My whole family is way into Mizzou football--I'm the only one who didn't graduate from MU and as I said sports in general are not my thing (unless we're talking gymnastics or figure skating and even then, only every four years). This whole state is ridiculous about the Huskers but it I can't get into it.

I have, however, been following the Cards, thanks in part to Melanie's obsessive postings. It's nice to give a little hometown shout-out and show a little hometown pride. I love St. Louis. It's a great city. I miss it. I enjoyed going to Cardinals games when I lived there -- maybe one a season, no more than that, sitting up in the cheapseats. So, yes, I am excited that they are in the series. I have watched portions of the last two games. I really hope they win.

But really all I can think about is this: Albert Pujols.

Poo-Holes.

which she has tried to keep slightly hidden from the eyes of the public (it's earthy and she's in a sorta public role), but clearly, uh, shows that she is also an intense fan...

and on a funny note (for cards fans), JVB wrote me yesterday that the Tigers are changing their name to Cheetahs. Say it out loud. :)

good land, how did MY blog, become the hotbed of sports quips?! really the ONLY thing I know about either team is that one has poo holes and the other kenny rogers. i feel like i've slipped into an alternate universe...

...except in the alternate universe of my dreams there's a world series of crochet...and everybody wins...

again, i'm a moron.
