Weekend Reading And Winning

1 Esdras 5.


It's great to win pennants, and even better to win the World Series.  Since I was born in 1963, I naturally don't remember the 1964 WS champs.  But I've been blessed with a lot of great baseball.

Since I came on the scene, the Cardinals have won the World Series 5 times- 1964, 1967, 1982, 2006 and 2011.

In addition, they have won the NL Pennant another 4 times- 1968, 1985, 1987 and 2004.

Plus making the playoffs in 1996, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2009 and 2012.

That makes 16 out of 49 years that I've been able to see post-season baseball, about 1 out of 3 years.  And 9 out of 49 years to see a World Series, about 1 out of 5 years.

And yet some people root for the Cubs.  Go figure.

Anyway, there's nothing better than winning the pennant.  Except for the World Series.
