Weekending - First Games of the NLCS

This weekend was met with so much excitement -- we had not one, but TWO Cardinal games to go to!  Well, Saturday's game was a total bust.  I love almost all Cardinal fans, I really do.  But Saturday night I swear every cray cray Cardinal fan was sitting around me.  It probably didn't help that we were loosing and I wasn't in the most people tolerate mood.  Let me recap.  To my right was a guy that could majorly benefit from some anger management classes.  He actually had bought an extra seat so when things went poorly he could punch it and hit it with his hat.  Not joking.  Then we have the couple sitting directly in front of us.  He tried to explain to his date (for 3 whole innings) why he was bringing another girl with him to the game on Sunday night.  Dude, she's never going to be okay with you bringing another date to the game!!!  Stop trying to justify it!!  And chick, by saying "Are you kidding me right now?" over and over is probably not going to convince him to ditch his Sunday night date and take you instead.  Then we have the lady behind me that constantly was tapping the back of my seat with her foot and throwing peanut shells on my back.  Pair all that with the way the Cardinals were playing and you can understand why I made Eric take me for ice cream after the game.  Still love the Cardinals by the way.


Sunday I woke up ready and excited for Game 2.  Come on Birds, make this one count!    I prepared myself by staying calm all day reading the Nicholas Sparks book The Best of Me.  I read the whole book this weekend.  Time well spent.  It was a typical Nicholas Sparks book, but I still loved it and it made me cry and gasp a few times.  The movie is coming out October 17.  Movie anyone?
Sunday night was game time.  It was a home run derby for the Cardinals.  Final score - 5-4.  Walk off home run by Kolton Wong.  Home runs also by Matt Carpenter, Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras.  Way to go Cardinals!!!  Oh, and by the way, our tickets were in another section so I didn't get to see date #2 of the dude sitting in front of us on Saturday night.  

Good news from the other side of the state -- the Royals are up 2 game to none against the Orioles.  I-70 Series maybe?!?!

So basically, Cardinals baseball was my weekend.  I did no cooking, no errands, nada.  Monday night is Rams football.  Rams players -- please show up and give us a good game.

See you guys later this week.  Have a good one.

Check out the below blogs to see what they were up to this weekend.


  1. Sounds like a baseball-filled weekend. I think I will need to pick up this book. The movie looks really good and now, I've heard from a few others that the book is a great weekend read. Thanks for sharing.

    I hope you join us this week for the Celebrate Southern link up, held on Tuesdays over at You don't have to be a southern blogger to join, just love to be southern-inspired!

  2. Stopping by from the linkup! I just saw all the baseball highlights this weekend college football has now started to consume my life! I can't wait for that movie to come out!

  3. sounds like the guy sitting next to you was a little crazy if he was willing to spend all that money on a ticket just to have a seat to punch haha!
