Game-Fives? Yes. Grand slams? A ton. Watching the Yankees and their dipshit fans sent home packing? Indeedilly-do!
So far it has been a pretty decent playoffs. The games have been entertaining and most of the winning clubs have been pretty tolerable. If we can’t watch the Giants, at least we get to see some palatable clubs duke it out for the title.
And tonight the Cardinals can really make things fun if they can take down the Fillies. If Chris Carpenter can live up to his billing, St Louis could take game five in Philly and provide us with plenty of wonderful camera shots of obnoxious filly fans in tears.
Of course, there is a downside to this. If St Louis can’t get it done, the Phills have a pretty clear path to the title. They are by far the best club on paper left in the playoffs, though Justin Verlander seems to have a knack for evening things out in a playoff series.
This Sunday? Niners-Bucs and the ever-looming threat of the post-upset hangover. This could be a statement game where the Niners move to 4-1 and show everyone they are the least-shitty team in this year’s NFC West. It could also be another game where they come out flat, get embarrassed at home and show everyone they’re still the 21st century 49ers that have kept the local liquor store racket comfortably in the black.
