St. Louis Proud!

Sorry I haven't posted lately, but I've been busy cheering on my St. Louis Cardinals who are now the World Series Champions!  It's hard to believe since on August 25th, we were 10 1/2 games out of first.  But we scratched our way back to the Wild Card spot and then beat the Phillies and the Brewers in the playoffs.

Game 3 was amazing with Albert Pujols tying only Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson with three home runs in one game.  But Game 6 will forever be implanted in my memory as the most amazing baseball game I have ever seen.  Twice, the Cards were one strike away from losing it all, but came back to tie the game.  And home town favorite David Freese nailed it down with a walk off home run which sent us to last night's game and victory!  A fairy tale ending to an amazing season!  If sports is a metaphor for life, the message is don't ever give up.  In baseball or in painting!  The journey is its own reward!

Here's Albert Pujols hitting a homer early in the season.  And waiting in the batter's box is World Series MVP David Freese.  Congratulations to the World Series Champions, the St. Louis Cardinals!
