Why Must the Cardinals Make My Life Miserable?

I can’t eat.

I can’t sleep.

I can’t find a date.

Thank you, St. Louis Cardinals.

kyle_lohse.jpgI went to bed last night thinking: So we blew it.  So what.  Tomorrow will be fine.  Lohse is on the mound.  We’ll be fine.  Really.  It’s all good.  The man is Lazarus.

And he was — just fine, raised from the dead and all — until he was left in a little too long and he started to show weakness: a crumbling arm.  And Tony, with little else to fall back on, because Mozeliak won’t make a deal for some relief, left him in.

And all hell broke loose.

I, as a St. Louis Cardinal fan and devoted US American, refuse to accept this surface steaming idealogical concept that we can survive on our own, without making a deal.  We’re up against the free-spending Cubs and Brewers!  Get your act together, Mr. Mozeliak!  You’re looking a lot like sit-on-my-^ss-while-I-read-a-story-book-GW Bush during the greatest tragedy of our time!

a-rod smirk.jpgI wrote an editorial on my dissatisfaction with the Cardinals’ front office and submitted it to the New York Times; however, they rejected it on the basis that it wasn’t controversial enough — not enough T&A — and it had nothing to do with the Yankees, the Mets, A-Rod nor Madonna.

So much for being the world leader in print news, New York Times.  For that I offer you a great big RSBS “EAT IT!”

And no, you may not hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Thx for the comment Jeff and.. I knooow, there just aren’t any other nicknames you can make with a name like “Sidney Ponson”.
    And LOL, hilarious post. I hate hearing so much about the controversial/gossipy topics such as A-Rod & Madonna, Clemens & steroids, etc. It’s interesting the first day, afterward it’s just overkill.
    Great work with the blog 🙂

    I know you are an Obama supporter so it is nice to see you are fair and balanced regarding the New York Times refusal to publish McCain’s op ed. It is absolutely outrageous. He is, after all, a nominee for POTUS. No matter what his opinions, they are news and deserve to be heard. Hell, if they were poorly reasoned or even downright stupid I would want to hear them to know who to vote against. What were the editors thinking? The NYT is destroying its reputation in one generation.

    V — Okay, we’ll allow journeyman Ponson to be known as “Sir” but ONLY in NYC.

    Michael — Yeah, this was a b.s. move by the Times. While the media tries to convince us they’re covering this thing fairly, that was a pretty dumb move by one of THE giants of the biz. Not cool.
