There is nothing like postseason baseball in St. Louis. Nothing. It’s sweet, a word I use about once every 20 years, on average.
This town loves its Redbirds. My wife, BB, and I are in St. Loo for a couple of days before moving on to Chicago for some family fun.
I lived and worked in St. Louis for seven years in the 80s, an experience for which I am forever grateful. It’s a wonderful sports town, and yes, despite the departure of two NFL teams, loves its football.
But this place is all about baseball. Cards and Dodgers in that one-game wildcard playoff thing tonight.
So we’re at least gonna get some on us.
One and done? “Won” would be the Red Sox. “Done” would be the Yankees.
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that the Cowboys are going to release LB Jaylon Smith. He has not started a game this year. He makes a base salary of $7.2 mill. Dallas is still on the hook for that. But the Cowboys are freed up from his $9.2 million 2022 price tag. I’m a little saddened by this, because Smith is an engaging guy and remains an inspiring story coming off that horrific knee injury he suffered at Notre Dame. But this is the NFL. And the beat goes on.
“Aww, come on, Baby. Cut me some slack. She hit my hand with her ass. What the hell was I supposed to do? I’m on to Tennessee. I said…I’m on to Tennessee.”
