I was talking at work with a guy who is a big St. Louis Cardinals fan.
We were talking about the current playoffs, players from his team and why I was disappointed but not devastated by the Red Sox losing to Tampa Bay.
He shrugged his shoulders and said "Well, you won last year... I'm still waiting since 1982."
I looked at him, cocked my head like the RCA Dog and reminded him that his team won the World Series in 2006.
He slapped his forehead and said "Oh man! I forgot!"
I guess that answers my question about how beloved Tony LaRussa is compared to Whitey Herzog!
When I accused the Cardinals and their fans for being subdued in their celebration when they won in 2006, I never imagined that in two years it would SLIP THEIR MINDS!!!
