stlouis missouri usa fall season colors change 100911

442 views

It looked like it was going to be the perfect fall - right temperatures and rain - then it started falling apart in just the last 2 days with storms running through. Glad I got out and shot these first.

YAY yay yay yay yay!!!
The home team (St. Louis Cardinals baseball) who made it into the playoffs on the very last game (162) of the season made an improbable comeback to defeat the best team in baseball, against the best pitcher in baseball in the best of 5 series - romping the Philadelphia Phillies!!!

We went ahead of the Brewers by defeating them last night giving us a advantage being up 2 games to 1 of the best of 7 series.
We have 2 more games here in St Louis - the 1st team to earn 4 wins goes on to the World Series.
Just 2 wins away!! By splitting the series in Milwaukee and winning the 1st game upon our return to St Louis with "home field advanage". Ahead 2-1 with them, there are 3 games here and the final 2 back there (again - if needed).

This series harkens back to the 1982 World Series (which we won by the way) when they were in the American League and was referred to as the "Suds series". Both towns are very well known for the beer that is brewed in their town. For us it's all of the Budweiser brands (we're # 1 and they are #2 in world-wide sales).
Go Cardinals!!!

Excellent Album. Wish we got the change in colors in Southern California. One of these days I'll be able to make the trip to the East to capture the beauty.
You're a real pro Bill !!!
