My Baseball Bucket List

by on December 19, 2011 · 13 comments

If you haven’t already seen the movie “The Bucket List”, starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, then I highly recommend that you do so.  In short, the movie is about the adventures of two men who believe that they are terminally ill and have decided to write out a “bucket list” of things they want [...]

I have seen this film, and it is magnificent. Dennis watched the film. Shockingly, he loved it. Remember the goosebumps you had watching the Cards in the World Series when it was going on live? Experience them again, watching highlights of the Cardinals’ 2011 season, culminating with an in-depth look at the World Series, complete [...]

Kudos to the people at A&E Networks Home Entertainment who recognized that the 2011 World Series story would not be complete without discussing the mad dash to the finish, the penultimate game 162, and the defeat of 2 baseball powerhouses en route to the World Series.  Don’t let the title fool you, though.  This DVD set [...]

Just when we thought the crazy part of the baseball year was over, St. Louis now has to fill two very large holes barely a week after celebrating WS Title #11. And for the first time, the thought of not having TLR scowling from the dugout still is hard to imagine. After the final out [...]

Folks seemed to appreciate having the Letterman and Leno clips here yesterday, I figured I’d put up the video of David Freese making the rounds, this time appearing with Ellen DeGeneres. Turns out, his visit there was part of a larger story that’s been going on between Ellen and some local Cardinals fans. (I’m admittedly [...]

World Series Game Seven’s are best watched from the edge of a seat. I learned that last night as the Cardinals slowly, systematically – thankfully – secured their eleventh World Championship in franchise history. What a game. What a series. What a season. The Texas Rangers were the perfect, formidable foe for this season’s Fall [...]

“What are you doing here?” Tony La Russa to Lance Lynn, Game 5 It’s been a punch line since Monday night, but viewed in a different light, that line – that question – is really a microcosm of how the Cardinals’ 2011 season has turned out, no? They weren’t supposed to be here. Ten-and-a-half games [...]

[ED Note: I received an e-mail this morning containing an unsolicited story of one Cardinal fan's recollection of how he watched the Cardinals defeat the Rangers in Game 6 of the World Series.  PH8 Reader Matt led off the e-mail with this: "I had to sit down and type out my thoughts about last night. [...]

Too many things are still floating through my head after last night’s magic and thankfully, I have that little distraction called work to get me right up to Game 7. No matter how many times this story started writing itself during the back and forth of possibly the greatest World Series finish, a Hollywood ending [...]

Do you see what I did there?  Thought so.  Not only was the weather in St. Louis a bit nasty for a while yesterday, but it also may have given the Cardinals a bit of an assist (or two).  The degree to which the Cardinals can take advantage of that fortuitous splash of rain will [...]
