This has officially been a great sports week, and the first great sports week in a long time for me. The Brownies finally won a game, fairly unimpressively, but they won. The Cornhuskers beat their first ranked opponent in a very long time. And, most satisfying of all, the Cardinals got swept out of the playoffs. The Cardinals losing is very close to as spiritually fulfilling as the Cubbies winning.
Fight on Brownies and Huskers, and R.I.P. Cards. Actually, scratch the peace. I hope the self proclaimed genius Tony Larussa is tormented day and night by the thought of this total failure. That would make me happy.
