what is your connection with the Cards?

A local (Wash Post) sports writer makes a case that the Cards are the worst team that has ever reached the World Series. (Statistically, it is not all the unlikely for a 500 team to win 4 out of five against a 700 team, which is why winning the regular season is, in some sense, more impressive.)

I was born and raised in the Gateway city.

Winning the regular season may be impressive, but it isn't winning the world series, now, is it?

I'm from DC, which has not been in the world series in many many decades and doesn't look to likely to be there any time soon.

But these sorts of things make me think of -- and I can't recall whether it was Duane Thomas or Hollywood Henderson. Whichever it was, he was playing for Dallas during one of their superbowl years. Before the game, a reporter asked him "You don't look very excited?"

"Its just a game, man."

"But its the ultimate game!"

The player looked up. "If this is the ultimate game, why are they going to play it again next year?"

They won't play this one again next year, they'll play a different one next year.
