When Albert Pujols hit his first homer last night, didn't you think it was kinda scary?
Like, if you were in the stands and that ball was coming your way, you probably wouldn't have time to duck before it went through your chest like a cannonball, the guy's chest behind you, the seats, a beer vendor, the stadium, and finally out through morning in Beijing.
And he was just getting started.
The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Texas Rangers so bad last night it hurt my eyes.
Every facet of the game, too.
3 errors for the Rangers?
Man, you cannot win playing like that.
And hey Ron Washington - every time you do something stupid people think it means Tony LaRussa is smart.
SO QUIT IT.
If Yadier Molina is up with guys on second and third and first is open...WALK HIM!
St. Louis 16 Texas 7.
Cardinals go up 2 games to 1, and the experts say the winner of game 3 wins the series so...the experts must say Cardinals win.
But the big story was Albert Pujols gettin' all historical with 3 homers, 5 hits and 6 RBIs.
All of those things tied records made by guys with names like Ruth or Reggie.
Maybe the greatest single night with a bat in Word Series history.
Christopher Columbus said, "Welcome to history, Albert."
Russian novelist Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy gave Pujols a signed copy of "War and Peace" and said, "Call me Leo."
And Ross Perot said something.
Can't remember what it was.
Hawks lose at home to Colorado... and the Bears play Tampa at Wembley in London.
Here's what it says at Wembley.com:
"London Game 5 features two previous Super Bowl Winners. The Chicago Bears, who have long been one of the NFL’s elite teams, have graced a sold-out Wembley Stadium before in 1986. The Buccaneers are loaded with young talent and have transformed themselves into potential Super Bowl champions!"
