I'm a baseball fan.
Last fall, I believe at the beginning of the National Championship Series between the Cardinals and Brewers - you know, right after that stupendous 1-0 game between Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Philies in the division Series - I said to myself: if this ragtag team, my Cardinals, manage to pull off another surprise World Series Victory after such an awful season (lets ignore that spectacular last run to screech just past the Braves), like in '06, I would put a cardinal somewhere in my art.
And by golly, the fools pulled it off...
