Work has continued being busier than I’d like, so there’s just this today, from an article on the Cardinals in Sports Illustrated:
“On Sept. 20, after a 7-4 victory over Milwaukee clinched the NL Central title, La Russa cut himself and his charges loose, romping around the visitors’ clubhouse at Miller Park soaked in champagne and beer. When King gave him an impromptu ice bath from a plastic wastebasket, La Russa, easily 75 pounds lighter than King, chased the reliever around the clubhouse, leaping on top of him and riding him piggyback, fists pumping in the air.”
Wild weekend of baseball coming up.
Dan: Where was John Mabry throughout all this?
Jim: He was scoring dope for a teammate!
Ha ha! Sorry.
