The Cardinals beat the Mets 6-3 last night. I got to see part of the game on ESPN, makes me so happy! ;) They are now 24-13 and after tonight hopeful 25-13. :) They have the best record in the league! :D Go CARDS!!! B-)

It's been nearly 2 months since my last post here, since then the Cardinals have been 32-22. They are still at the top of the Central and have the best record. I am hoping to watch the Cardinals on FOX tonight and definitely going to watch them on ESPN tomorrow night. :) Adam Wainwright is pitching tomorrow, I love watch him pitch. :) He is the best!

Five Cardinals are All-Stars this year: Yadier Molina, Carlos Beltran, Adam Wainwright, Matt Carpenter, and Allen Craig. Molina and Beltran are starters this year, only the best. :) I think Lance Lynn should have been an All-Star again this year, but obviously he is not.

Sounds like the Cardinals might get Chris Carpenter back this year! And possibly as a starter. Too awesome! B-) Go Cardinals! :D

If I hear the word agar again I will almost go crazy. Oh the ashes series when nearly all men and some women go crazy about cricket all over Australia and the uk. I just can't get into it.

The regular season baseball is nearly over, who else's favorite team is going to the postseason? :D The Cardinals are and this year they have the division. Well, they just need to beat the Cubs tonight to secure the division. :) Which if they don't win, I will be quite surprised. Lance Lynn is pitching, after that rough patch he has rebounded and his last start he pitched really good.

The rookie pitchers have done/are doing amazing job! :) Michael Wacha's 8 2/3s no-hitter on Tuesday, WOW! I wish I could have have seen that game.

Welcome to the forum, thephfactor1!

I like to follow the NFL, though this early in the season I tend to focus on the MLB playoffs more (especially with the local NFL team off to an 0-3 start, though the Twins aren't in the playoffs either).

Do you have a favorite team or teams? Do you like to attend games or watch them from the comfort of your own home?

I don't follow the NFL much at all. I follow NCAA football more, but pretty much just one team: the Huskers.

I was actually referring to football. Like, real football, not handegg. :P I like Bayern Munich, although I don't get a chance to watch as much of their games as I should/wish.

I'm not much of a sports person I have to admit. The Olympic Games are about the only sports I go out of my way to watch. ;))

I do follow my college football (handegg ;) ) team, but I don't usually watch the games unless they just happen to be on where I am.

Handegg. ;)) I've not heard that term before. I like it.

So sorry for my incorrect assumption, thephfactor1. :ymblushing:

I'd not heard 'handegg' either. I like it too.

You're fine... 75% of the people I know consider "football" to be of the variety you play with helmets and pads and offense and defense etc.

I may or may not have just been trying to squeeze "handegg" into the conversation. :p

My favorite team, the Dodgers, is playing in the postseason for the first time since 2009. While I would've rather they clinched without such a massive payroll (I feel like the franchise has become many of the things I hated about the Yankees), I can't complain about success.

I am also very glad for the Pirates that they got to win the Wild Card game so that they'll have a real postseason series for the first time in 21 years. The single elimination Wild Card game is just brutal.

I have a minimal interest in sport. I have never been able to get excited while watching it. I usually drift off into a day dream. AFL(Australian rules football) especially. The final was last weekend, everyone was going crazy.

The Cardinals won! :D They tied the series 2-2 and it's back to Busch Stadium for game 5! :D Great pitching by Michael Wacha, and the bullpen.

GO CARDINALS!!!! B-)

The St. Louis CARDINALS are NL CHAMPIONS! B-) Once again Michael Wacha pitched extremely well and now the Cardinals are head to the World Series! :D I'm so excited! But I am sure nobody would have guess that. ;) :p

In the world of college football, the Mizzou Tigers (14) beat the the Florida Gators (22) 36-17 and that was with the red shirt freshman backup quarterback, Maty Mauk, starting his first game. The Tigers are 3-0 in the SEC and are alone atop the SEC East. B-) Next week, they play South Carolina in Columbia, MO.

It has been a great weekend thus far, the KC Chiefs (who are 6-0) have to beat the Texans tomorrow to make it a perfect sports weekend. :)
