I am an avid Cardinal fan, rarely missing a game. My disappointment is evident in my choice of dialog, but replays, I can do without.
The Cardinals start out with a winning bang
The Stars Spangled Banner played so beautifully
The Cards and Braves played so endlessly
The eager crowd roaring so happily
The Cards ahead, the Braves trailing so tirelessly
Ruby and Ray yelling, " Go Cards go "
The Cards ahead, three to zero
We're on our feet yelling " Bader ( cute butt ) go man go
Then Carpenter is up, his bat on fire
They walk him, his shoulders sag, he was sooo ready his gun was for hire
Now it's the bottom of the ninth
The Braves up, hoping to end this struggled strife
Hicks is pitching, he's just a kid
His arm wicked, doing his bid
The Braves bag a home run
Two on base, that gives them a tie, It's like they loaded up a Tommy gun
the Cards up, Miller pitching, Hicks in the bull pen looking down
The Braves crowd on fire, this is the last round
I'm on the edge of my seat with mouth wide open and a pitiful frown
Now it's up to the Cards to show their stuff
As for me, too much excitement, have I had enough?
My bed is calling, yet I can't leave
Come on Cards, I feverishly need a reprieve
We're tied three to three
Look at me, I'm down on one knee
It's the last of the ninth, the Cards are up again
They do nothing, I've lost my hopeful grin
It go's into overtime the tenth inning
I start to hope again, just like in the beginning
The Braves get a run, now it's three to four
The Cards are finished, they couldn't even score
So another disappointing evening, excitement turns to glum
If Carpenter had gotten his promised home run
It's now time to hit the sack
Oh yes, I'll be coming back!
My throat is raspy from yelling out loud
I'm just happy I'm home and not among the crowd.
