The Suck Store Called

In a stunning turn of events, the Cardinals bullpen lost a game last night. Shocking news, I know. Although most of the blame could be put on TLR for leaving Kyle Lohse in there through the eighth inning. Not like it was dumb to let him face Rickie Weeks...I remember in the olden days (before 7pm Monday) when Weeks was a .216 hitter. That was back when Estelle Getty was still alive (too soon?). I guess I'll be leaving the McClellan t-shirt jersey in the closet for a while until all this sucking dies down.

Besides blaming LaRussa, some of the blame could be placed on myself and the Mad Librarian. Since the domination trip in Kansas City, the ML and I have witnessed some shitty Cardinal games together: the 11-1 drubbing vs. the Mets (in her fancy 100 level seats), the "game that never happened pt. 2" in Pittsburgh (on her couch...alone together...with Barry White music in the background), and last nights' let's-blow-this-three-run-lead-to-the-team-we're-tied-with fiasco.

It's safe to say that the Librarian and I are like Harry Caray and Mother Theresa...who are like oil and water; just don't mix.

She did get to experience how to get into the park with a May 18th ticket on July 22nd. That's always fun to show off to the newbies. And how does she repay the Cardinals? Scrapes up the paint on the rail we were leaning on during the game! They trust people to come in there and treat the place with respect, and this is what she does. Unbelievable.

Though I'm not sure where she ended up. Last I saw, she was talking to a middle-aged gentleman with a mustache, jorts, and half a bottle of Polo Sport doused on his neck. He was breaking out his top notch material and next thing you know, I have to hitch a ride back to my car in Clayton. (I never knew the line, "Do you sleep on your stomach? Can I?" actually works on some women. Did. Not. Know that.)

The most important lesson of the night is that we are still owed two Jeff Suppan jerseys by Sir. He knows why, and what he needs to do to rectify the situation. My message is clear.

Finally, speaking of jerseys, who knew they made Mike Busby Royals jerseys...except for Mike Busby himself? Gross.

Edit: Steve Busby. Who the flip is that? I must don't know nothin' about my Royals history.

Wait, who's Mother Theresa in this scenario? It better not be me.

I don't think Mother Theresa goes home with middle-aged men from South County.....

Just saying....

I believe Steve Busby has a banner on the outside of the K as part of the "Greatest Royals Ever." The list is longer than what you'd think, or what it should be.

Rusty isn't from South County; he's from Dallas. And I'm 72% sure I love him.
