The Titanic’s Deck Chairs Are Now In Order

by Dennis October 23, 2012

The 2012 season for the St. Louis Cardinals came to a rather abrupt, sobering halt tonight.  Taking time to reflect and collect one’s thoughts before writing a post-mortem might be a savvy move.  I am not that man.  So, please go elsewhere for brevity, hat tipping, and the usual exchange of pleasantries that often follows [...]

Cardinals and Giants Playing Roulette

by Nick October 22, 2012

There exists a gambling fallacy – one that applies to many games, but is especially evident in roulette – in which a player believes that if the bouncing ball has landed on red enough times, black is bound to come up next. There are a few other ways to play this particular gambit on a [...]

Rally Unicorn Time

by Dennis October 22, 2012

After the Giants took to Twitter to make some rather unoriginal topics trend on Twitter last night, I think it only right to fight fire with a nuclear unicorn weapon.  Of course, the hashtags in use have no impact on the game, but they provide a cathartic release for those of us who are sick [...]

Not The News – Vol XVI

by Dennis October 17, 2012

To celebrate the Cardinals making the playoffs that infamous person known by the singular name “She” was quoted on the topic of the team making the postseason.  Of course, many quotes have been attributed to “She” over the years, but this one makes more sense than some of the others.

Building a Bonfyre

by Dennis October 15, 2012

Imagine Facebook minus all the extraneous crap that most people don’t have time to use, kick, or farm.  Then imagine that the slimmed down version of Facebook is solely dedicated to a unique, personalized social networking experience, and you don’t have to worry about security or privacy issues.  Think of it as a combination of [...]

NLCS Q&A With The Curse of Benitez

by Dennis October 15, 2012

Armando Benitez has cursed us all, and the founder of Benitez Has Cursed Us, David Schubert, wants you all to stand up and recognize, yo.  If you think that sentence makes no sense, then you should try following the stream of semi-consciousness that is Schube’s Twitter feed.  He’s a sucker for misspelled words and ignorance, [...]

Cardinals defeat Giants, dodge karma

by Nick October 15, 2012

Just like that, less than 48 hours removed from another thrilling do-or-die postseason victory, the Cardinals have negated the San Francisco Giants’ home-field advantage by winning Game One of the NLCS. The win wasn’t without its own fair share of heartburn, though, as the hometown Giants tried their best to replicate the Cards’ miracle comeback [...]

Down To Their Last Strike (Humpty remix ft Skrillex)

by Dennis October 13, 2012

The moment Jayson Werth pulled an Adam Wainwright offering to left field for a double, it seemed like the Cardinals might be in for a long, long night.  When Wainwright has it all going good, he does not give up a lot of extra base hits.  When he doesn’t, you get Bryce Harper following Werth [...]
