5 is one of my favorite numbers for secret sorority (gay) reasons (normally i hate odd numbers but 5 is an okay kind of number). It is also the # of tonight's World Series Game. Game 5. Of. THE. 2006 World Series. The game the Cardinals are destined to win and end the series as World Champs. We like 5 today. Today is sponsored by the number five. Five five five alive. Detroit is going back to their lovely cold city without any Cardinals.
The part that makes me nervous about this whole thing is that I will be driving (karl will be driving actually because 1) i suck at driving and 2) i will be way too excited to drive if the game is on and i might run us off the road. ANYWAY, I will be on my way to St. Louis (where the aforementioned game is being played) and that just seems unfair. I mean, I could be like an hour away from the city in like Festus, Missouri and the whole city of STL could errupt in joyful celebration and I just wouldn't be there. So close yet so far away. Can't you just feel the injustice of that? I know I can listen to it on the radio but I would rather watch it on the TV or better yet in person or at least in a Sports bar where there are other Cardinal fans. Boo.
david eckstein is my hero. he just looked so calm last night when you know he was FREAKING out on the inside. Also I would just like to say ONE thing about the American League and their WONDERFUL pitchers (specifically the detroit pitchers) and how much BETTER they are than the NL. Errors. Errors all OVER the place. One for every game from a pitcher. Errors. That is all. I hope I am not jinxing anything by writing this - i am a bit nervous that i just might.
6 hours till game time. oh. my. god! somebody get me so magic transportation powder so i can go RIGHT NOW.
