The worst of winter is yet to come. The world economy threatens to totter and fall. Albert is an Angel. All about us is football. But, lo, the past shall console us until a better future comes along! So as you reflect upon 2011 and its many afflictions, take time for this little moment …

PH8 signs two free agents

by on December 14, 2011 · 3 comments

Well, I guess that’s not actually true – they’re not really free agents, but rather, mercenaries adding to their list of websites being infiltrated by their great work. In addition to the great work Dennis and Josh do here at PH8, I’m happy to announce that we’ve somehow conned accomplished baseball minds and writers Dayn [...]

  Ryan Theriot has been non-tendered.  In non-baseball language, that means he wasn’t invited to play in the same sandbox next year.  I plan on wearing a pair of jorts at the home opener in his honor.  It’s not that he wasn’t good, either.  It’s just that his ability to catch and throw the round [...]

UCB Awards – Dennis

by on November 11, 2011 · 3 comments

It’s time.  Yes, it’s time for the UCB (United Cardinal Bloggers) members to pat each other on the back and remind each other just how awesome we think we are.  Okay, I’m exaggerating…slightly.  It is actually time for the UCB members to vote on the various annual awards which honor various people and blogs for [...]

I kid.  Maybe the angry mob in Blazing Saddles didn’t need any “stinkin’ badges”, but we certainly do need ethics.  Ethical principles provide us with a set of rules that are effectively the checks and balances system for our actions.  When our moral compasses fail to point to true north, a code of ethics helps [...]

That’s right, folks.  The end of the world is at hand, and the Mizzou football team is about to embark on a 7 year winless streak in conference games against their new friends in the SEC.  This is dreadfully important news, because football is most definitely the only sport involved in the move (no, it is not).  [...]

Breaking Down Jaime Garcia

by on October 15, 2011 · 4 comments

  Jaime Garcia held the Brewers to just 1 run in 4 2/3 innings last night, and the bullpen finished off the rest of game to put the Cardinals just 1 win away from the World Series.  Unfortunately, Garcia’s performance did little to silence those who have voiced concern about his ability to pitch his way out [...]

We Are All Steve Bartman

Each and every single one of us has done at least 1 thing in our lives that we’ve almost immediately regretted doing, and we’ve been mildly embarrassed at a minimum or brutally ashamed and guilt-ridden at a maximum.  Maybe we’ve offended someone by speaking too loudly at a dinner party about the host’s over-exuberant use [...]
