world series 2017 2 by Randy Gardner

Hopefully you have been able to watch the World Series as it has been spectacular. By the time you read this it will be over but Game number 5 was a game that will go down in history.

So the Cardinals are done this year, the second year in the row they missed the playoffs.And now the Rams are 3-1 but nobody around here seems to care. But perhaps we still have a team to root for in the NFL, that being the cross-state 4-0 Kansas City Chiefs.

As we fly through the month of September, the Cardinals seem to be falling apart. Earlier in the year and even up to a week ago, I was thought the Cardinals still had a chance. Now after losing three games in a row against the Cubs over the past weekend, I feel that they are not in contention anymore.
