Non-Sox baseball entry
Know what was the best part of Albert Pujols' 9th inning, 2-out, 3-run moonshot that gave the Cardinals a 5-4 win over the Astros Monday night? George I and Bar shutting up and sitting down. Those swine were standing at their seats behind the plate when Brad Lidge hung his slider, and sitting quietly a moment later.
SportsCenter has been showing the video on pretty much an endless loop, so look to the far right (naturally) in the stands just behind the plate and enjoy watching them being silenced.
I wasn't rooting one way or the other in this series until ESPN showed those two in the stands. But now I realize that the Astros have a history of coming close to winning a postseason series and then losing, and they weren't expected to beat the Cardinals anyway, plus now they get to go on another fun plane ride, so this (chuckle) -- this is working very well for them.
