Yesterday, it came to an end. The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers in game six of the NLCS. The Cardinals move on to the World Series; the Brewers go home.
It's a bittersweet loss. Milwaukee has not had a team play in the World Series since 1982. Ironically, it was the Cardinals that beat them back then too.
This year, the Cardinals just outclassed the Crew. They played well, they got more runs over the plate, everything was clicking. In the end, they closed it out with a 12-6 victory. I would've liked to see the Brewers win, and the NLCS go on to a game seven. I could've handled a loss in seve; this just seems so premature, so sudden. But, it is what it is.
Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals. Best of luck in the big Series. Play well, keep up the winning ways. Do your fans proud. I, however, am going to have to root for the Texas Rangers. You've played in 18 World Series, and won ten of them. The Rangers have played in one (last year), and lost. I've gotta side with the underdog.
In five and a half months, the Milwaukee Brewers will try for the championship all over again. Their first game of the season will be on Friday, April 6, 2012 at Miller Park. Their opponent: The St. Louis Cardinals. You can bet THAT series will be sold out!
So... here's to the Brewers. You had a fantastic season! You made it into the post-season, and were eliminated only two wins shy of the World Series. It was a spectacular run! Entertaining. Thrilling! Dramatic. Come back and do this again next year... and we'll be supporting you.
Because Brewer fans
a World Championship! We've never had one. There's a deep hunger. 42 years is a long time to wait!
