Wow, how could we go through a weekend without talking about this one? St. Louis first, Detroit, second. We had to get around to mentioning it at some point, right? Inevitable, and the like. Well, it can not be said enough. Congrats, St. Louis.
Hey, St. Louis, Congrats, you deserve this Championship. You’ve worked very hard, and as much as I’m not a fan of some of the folks you’ve got putting together this Title run, I think I can get over that and appreciate the victory that you’ve compiled here. Party like it’s, well, party like you party in St. Louis. Have pride in all of your accomplishments, St. Louis. I don’t know what number title this is, but, I’m sure Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa knows. And hey, I’m sure he’s popping the bubbly personally after a Championship like this.
Congrats again, St. Louis…
2006’s most dangerous city. Yes, St. Louis, you managed to wrest that title out of the cold, near-dead, hands of Camden, New Jersey. While the folks of Camden are likely dissapointed to not three-peat with this honor, you really need to hand it to St. Louis. Take nothing away from them on this one. Violent crime up 20%? That’s getting it done.
And the hell with the Cardinals, too, because there’s a damn good chance they’re getting the business end of a shotgun at some point in the next year. Again, congrats St. Louis, this is your day. Your week, even. Celebrate!
