MLB.TV isn’t working at all now, not even for games that have already finished. So, I finally gave in and just read the recap of the Cardinals game. I have a little patience to watch games in their entirety even after they’ve been played, but it’s not unlimited and after waiting all day for MLB.TV to get their act together, I couldn’t wait any longer.
Looks like it was a decent game, so I’m sorry I didn’t get to see it. I did see Albert’s home run though on stlcardinals.com’s front page. That now makes 12 for the man. Awesome. It seems like he could easily break the April record now, but of course, who knows what will happen. Slumps happen to even Albert. (Remember the first Chicago series anyone?) The thing with him is that they seem to be shorter and less frequent. So we will see.
Side comment: I found a quote today that Albert made back on April 10.
"In April, the ball doesn’t jump in any park."
Reading this amused me because clearly the ball is definitely jumping off of Albert’s bat.
My family is going down to see the new Busch for the first time this Sunday and they’re right behind the bullpen. So, who knows? Maybe they will get to catch a Pujols record breaking homer.
Well, since I can’t really intelligently discuss the game since I didn’t watch it, I will discuss something else. On Sunday night I went to my first ever professional soccer game. (Or football as it’s called here. That can be very confusing sometimes.) I watched the home team, the Madrid Real, squash MÃ¡laga 2-1. The two goals were scored by the guys on the right. On the left is Zinedine Zidane from France and the other is Sergio Ramos, from Spain. The game was reasonably exciting because the Real won in the last 60 seconds of the game by Sergio’s goal. Other than that though, it was quite boring. All the running around in between with nothing happening. I will definitely just stick to baseball!
Praying I will be able to watch tonight’s game,
