Requiem For A Puma

by on September 12, 2012 · 3 comments

If Lance Berkman‘s knee surgery indeed turns out to be the straw that broke the Big Puma’s back, then so be it.  Berkman can look back at 14 seasons of Major League Baseball with a lot of pride and likely few (if any) regrets.  Rather than soulfully mourn his career with some overly dramatic soliloquy, [...]

Take a close look at the above image.  It’s Josh Harrison of the Pirates propelling his body into catcher Yadier Molina.  Some will call it a clean baseball play.  Some may even call it a “scrappy”, “hard-nosed”, or “gritty” play.  Call it what you like.  I call it a gutless, bush league move made by [...]

When I think of John Francis “Jack” Buck (August 21, 1924 – June 18, 2002) and Darryl Andrew Kile (December 2, 1968 – June 22, 2002), words fail me.  My brain works at creating spontaneous thoughts, but the signals that tell the rest of my body how to operate fail after the one that first [...]

Make note that we are not giving away anything proprietary here (whatever that means).  The PH8 logo is property of PH8 and may be presented to any true Gryffindor in need of it.  The actual schedule is not even close to identical to the official ones released by the St. Louis Cardinals, so there is [...]
