stlouis missouri usa fall seasons color baseball cardinals playoffs 100911

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 evened up the series last night with a "drubbing" of the Brewers in game 2 of the best of 7 series so we come home for the next 3 (if needed) - the 1st team to earn 4 wins goes on to the World Series.
Just 3 wins away!! By splitting the series in Milwaukee we return to St Louis with "home field advanage". Tied 1-1 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!!!

thank you my good friend. Yes Memphis is actually a very important part of the Cards farm system.
