New blog name?

By the time October comes around I am pretty much like a zombie glued to my TV (or in this case computer) watching playoff ball.  This is multiplied 10x when the Cardinals are in the running.  So you can imagine what life was like until they won the World Series.  Now, life is pretty much back to normal and clearly, I’ve been away from my blog for awhile.

But, I’m back in order to make a few comments.  So, let’s get started.

First, what a season.  I’m still somewhat in shock that I witnessed a Cardinals World Series championship.  I’ve seen a lot of great Cardinal moments over the years.  Moments, that as a Cardinal fan, you don’t forget.  But, I don’t know that anything can compare with this season, ending in the greatest thing a baseball fan can see.  Your team celebrating on the field after the last out of a hard fought series and proving that they deserve to be on top.  What a great high after such a low, low feeling that us Cards fans had in ’04.  It was awesome.

And the good news keeps coming.  Rolen picked up his 7th….yes his 7th gold glove.  The great part of this being, of course, that he was prevented from earning it last year because of his injury.  From his grand slam on opening day until now, Rolen has shown us that he is back to form and one of the greatest third baseman in the game.

Despite Pujols’ long list of awards, trophies, honors and hitting records, he has long stated that what he wanted was a gold glove.  Many Cardinal fans felt like his defense was worthy this year of the honor and luckily, we’re not the only ones who felt that way and he picked up his first of what will probably be many gold gloves.

I have more things to say about possible trade rumors, who the Cardinals should sign vs. who they will sign and more such things.  But, that will have to wait until I have more time to put together a decent post.

For now, I will leave you with what has been a frequently asked question on the blog these days.  As you know, the title of my blog is called Party Like It’s 1982.  This is the first blog I have done over the course of the entire season and therefore, my first blog to have this title.  And after only a few months it has become obsolete.  Many have wondered, will I change the name of the blog?

For the answer, I go to you.  What do you think?  Should I leave the name?  Should I change it?  And if I do change it, what should it be changed to?

I’m thinking strongly of closing down the blog for the winter and starting it back up in the spring.  So this will be mainly for what the blog should be called in the 2007 season.  (Side note: I think that MLB should offer the yearly subscription for $35 since the baseball season (including October) is 7 months.  And then the winter would basically be like a bonus, since obviously most people will blog less during this time.  I’d get a yearly subscription instead of monthly if that were the case.)

So, without further ado, the options are:

a- Keep ‘Party like it’s 1982!’  We’re baseball fans and superstitious.  If you change it, the Cardinals won’t win the Series next year!

b- Change it to ‘Party like it’s 2006!’  This team is the new 1982 team and to who all future teams will be compared!

c- Change it to ‘The Blog Formerly Known as ‘Party like it’s 1982!’  It’s the best of both A and B!

d- Change it to something else entirely.  It should definitely be called _________ because _____________________________________.

Clearly, if you pick option D, you need to fill in the blanks with your own idea.  Looking forward to a lot of fun ideas and seeing which names people like better.

Fan of a world championship team,

Tiffany

    I like the current title but… I think you should change it. Maybe “Don’t Wait another 24 years?” or “Detroit Pitchers for President”

    Just a suggestion…

    Rumor Mill,
    Love the suggetions, thanks!

    Kellia,

    Appreciate the vote.

    Mark,

    Yadi had a way of coming up big, didn’t he?

    Shadow8,

    Yes, weak….or just busy. Maybe you’re a Cub fan?

    Rrwohlschlaeger,

    Good suggestion!

    Brady,

    I’m up for that! Now if the Redbirds will just do their part!

    Kellia,
    Oops, forgot to comment on Soriano. Obviously, he was the man to get in the market. But, they’re still the Cubs and they still have way too many holes….namely, a very ineffective pitching staff. My prediction? They crawl out of the basement, but don’t come close to tasting October baseball.

    I completely agree with you on the Cubs issue. And have you heard some people have predictions set for the Brewers to win the AL Central? Crazy Milwaukeeans.

  5. Tiffany

    William,
    Thanks for stopping by!

    One player won’t win it for the Cubs or have they forgotten the Nomar Garciparra incident? The Brew Crew seem to be everyone’s favorite dark horse this year, but the NL Central definitely belongs to the Cardinals.

    If you could leave your MLBlogs url next time, that’d be great. Then I’ll stop over and check out your page!

    All right, this could throw you off a bit, but I am… A Yankees fan (Cue gasps and shrieks of horror from the rest of baseball). But… My favorite NL team is the Cardinals(Cue sighs of relief, springtime music, and birds singing). I actually have a big No.5 jersey as well as one for Jimmy Edmonds. My blog is Lonely Yankee Fan. I think you’ll appreciate at least my tribute to Cory Lidle, if nothing else.

    William,
    Well, I’m quite happy to have a NY fan visiting the site. I’ve always liked the Yanks and even own a pair of Yankee pajama pants! 🙂 And then after 2004 when the Redbirds got swept by the Sox in the Series…..my great dislike for Boston propelled me even further into liking the Yankees.

    I am suprised, however, only because a lot of Yankee fans, or really AL fans in general don’t seem very interested in the National Leauge.

    And yes, I enjoyed your tribute to Cory Lidle. It’s nice that the Yankees will be honoring him all through the season.

    Well, I didn’t really realize that none of the AL baseball fans I know besides my father and I seem to ever talk about the NL. But it hit me. You’re right. I’m also very glad that the Yanks will be honoring Cory all year long.

    William,
    Yeah, I can’t tell you how many times I heard last year from AL fans about how boring the NL postseason games were to watch, which is ridiculous. Yes, a Yankee-Red Sox matchup is always fun in October, but you can’t tell me that the NLCS wasn’t exciting. Going down to the wire with the winning run driven in by a mediocre hitting catcher in the 9th inning of game 7? Come on….way better than an easy sweep by Detroit.

    Very true… BUT Mags’ walk-off homer to go to the WS was pretty dramatic, up 3 games to 0 or not. At least, until the rest of baseball finally paid attention to Cards-Mets.

  11. Tiffany

    William,
    No doubt. And I fully enjoyed watching the Tigers do what they did, especially with a bunch of young hurlers.

    Tiffany

  12. William

    Definitely. I think I spelled that wrong. The Tigers were great (in the ALCS, at least.) Their pitchers fell apart in their own special way come World Series time.

  13. Tiffany

    William,
    The errors were unbelievable. Whenever the Cardinals put the pressure on, the Tigers completely fell apart.

    Tiffany

  14. William

    Yup. I don’t think that the Tigers will get last long in the playoffs this year, since they were never really under pressure until Game 3 of the Series. Now, with so many teams adding key players that actually fit with the team, and the Tigers running in place acquiring Sheff and losing Rogers, they’ll be under pressure almost the whole playoffs if they get there. They nearly cracked late in the regular season.

    Willliam,
    Yes, it will be interesting to see how they do. The White Sox had similar struggles last year after being World Champs and winning so many games in ’05. Then last year they don’t even make it.

    Tiffany

  17. William

    Yeah, I think the Yankees should start channeling 1998-2000 to break the repeat curse. But I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if the Cards repeated, as long as it wasn’t against the Yanks.

  18. Tiffany

    Hmm…a Cards/Yankees Series….it would definitley be chaos…..those are two huge baseball citiies.

    Tiffany

  19. William

    I think maybe some riots would break out, so let’s hope it doesn’t end up that way. I haven’t gotten a comment in a while on my blog, so could I have some tips on how to have people notice your blog?

  20. Tiffany

    Hmm….I don’t know if I’m the best person to ask. There are definitely people who get a lot more comemnts than me. I guess just commenting on other people’s blogs. Or maybe you could go talk some smack to a Red Sox fan. 🙂 That might just produce hate mail though!
