Look, I love to watch ESPN in the morning, but I always find myself disappointed. I either don't see my favorite team (the Cardinals) unless I watch it for two hours, or I see the Boston Red Sox or Yankees twice before the Cardinals.
Red Sox fans and Yankees fans don't understand, and in truth I would love to turn on ESPN and in any half hour see my team's recap. So really, I am writing this because I'm jealous.
Although the Red Sox won two World Series, the Cardinals have been just as good, making NLCS appearances in 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 while Boston made it to ALCS in 2003, 2004, and 2007.
They made it to the World Series twice and so did the Cardinals. In fact, they are the two previous winners of it. The only difference is that the Red Sox won both. The Red Sox actually haven't been the better team over years in this decade.
The Cardinals are also counted out of the playoffs, even though they're in reach of the wild card, but that is a different matter.
The picture is messed up, but don't worry.
