With a 10 1/2 game deficit in the NL Central and a Brewers magic number now at 11, any hope of that being a race is over. (Wondering about the wild card? They’re now tied with the Giants at 8 1/2 behind the Braves, who now have a magic number of 14.)
So, with the end near, will the Cardinals still have your attention? Which of these will you do?
A. Continue watching every game possible. Baseball is baseball, the Cardinals are my team and I’ll be there until there are no more games to watch.
B. I’ll watch on occasion, but don’t care as much now as I did earlier in the season.
C. Baseball? Really? Now? The NFL starts Thursday night! And college football already started!
D. A combination of the above.
What will you do for the next 21 games? Share your thoughts below.
For me, it’s mostly A. I do find myself checking more often on my playoff step-team (more on that in a future post) and am a little bit more interested in the NFL season since I’m playing fantasy football for the first time. (How’s this for beginner’s “luck” — Peyton Manning is my quarterback.) But, the Cardinals are still the main priority until there are no more games left to watch. There’s still Albert’s chase for .300 and 100 RBI and the chance to (hopefully) see what Tyler Greene, Tony Cruz, Adron Chambers can do and more. There’s a story to every game, every day.
So, what about you?
