Rangers and Cardinals Fight to the Death

Last night was amazing.  That’s there really is to say.  I’m honestly hard pressed to find the words to describe what I watched.

Yes… Beavis and Butt-Head made their triumphant return to television last night and it was amazing.  But… I’m not here to talk about that.

Last night also gave us one of the greatest World Series games in recent memory, if not ever.  It’s was unbelievable what transpired into the early hours of Friday morning.  I watched it as it happened, seen all the replays and listened to all of the analysis and still can’t believe it happened.

The Rangers found a way to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by blowing two, two run leads in the bottom of the 9th and 10th innings and then gave up a game winning home run to David Freese.  It was very Cleveland like of them and as such, I feel their pain.

Now the Cardinals and Rangers face off in a do or die game 7.  All hands are on deck in what is one of the most intense and dramatic events in all of sports.  Nothing beats a game 7 in baseball, a Stanley Cup Final game 7 is the lone exception.  Every pitch, every hit, every run matters.  I can’t wait to see what these two teams have in store for us tonight.  It’s been a great series so far and may very well go down as one of the best we ‘ve ever seen.  It’s been back and forth the entire time and depending on what happens tonight it may solidify its position near the top.

If you’re a baseball fan, you couldn’t ask for a better ending to a season.  Do you realize it’s been 10 years since we’ve seen a game 7?  10 Years!  We’re more than over due for this.

When these two teams take the field tonight, all that separates one of them from a place in history is 27 outs.  Rest assured, those outs won’t come easy.  They’ll be highly contested and nerve rattling from the start.  Eventually someone is going to come through and be the hero.  After that 27th out is made the party will officially be on for one team.  For the other, a long cold winter full of nightmares and what if’s. 

Twenty-seven outs…  That’s all that stands in the way of greatness.
