St. Louis is a proud town with a bit of an inferiority complex. And this baseball team is embarrassing my hometown.
Hope springs eternal (especially against a team battling an 86 year curse), and the Red Sox know as well as anyone that it's possible for a team to come back from three games down.
But this is an embarrassment. I can't recall a team playing this poorly when everything was on the line. My son and I will be in the park tonight, desperately hoping that we don't have to see one of sports' most enduring curses end in our ballpark against our team.
