On a night when Every. Single. Break. went the Cardinals' way, on a night when Tigers fans had to have been ripping out their eyebrows, on a night when the Cardinals' spikes were made of diamonds and the Tigers' were made of Vasoline ... the Cardinals have taken a 3-1 lead in the World Series and are one game away from winning the World Championship for the first time since 1982. We cannot imagine how difficult that game must have been for Tigers fans.

That game is (scheduled for) Friday night. It was originally called "Game Four," but a rainout has made it "Game Five." Those people with "Game Four" tickets will be at "Game Five."

We are one of those people. With an 0-7 record on the season. With the opportunity to clinch the World Series in St. Louis.

We don't anticipate sleeping much tonight.
