notes on government, sports and popular culture
, spoil Astros' party.
I respect teams that refuse to panic when facing elimination on the road. The Cardinals could have easily given up considering the team's meltdown on Sunday night. Extra credit goes to Jim Edmonds, who worked Brad Lidge for a walk on some pretty close pitches. One would think he'd be swinging away after his Game 4 ejection for arguing balls and strikes.
Now it's time for the Astros to keep their cool on the road. Remember, they're a cursed franchise......
