Okay, I don't usually write about sports in this blog as I don't feel sports have much to do with pop culture, but tonight an event of major importance (at least if you live in Missouri) occurred. After 24 years and four trips to the Series in that time, the St. Louis Cardinals have won the World Series. It was also the first time in three years that a National League team won the Series. This was the 17th trip for the St. Louis Cardinals to the series (more than any other team in baseball besides the New York Yankees, if I recall) and their tenth World Series win (one of which, in 1944, was against the St. Louis Browns). I might add that it was also the first time in 11 years that a team from the South beat a team from the North (the last time was in 1995 when the Atlanta Braves beat the Cleveland Indians). Anyhow, it is a good night to be a baseball fan in Missouri.
