10/21/2004: I have never been so happy to be wrong in my life....
Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals:
2004 National League Champions!!!!!
I honestly thought I'd have more to say, but I'm too busy being ecstatic.
Probably write more tomorrow, once I've had a chance to let it sink in, and read the Cardinals blogs....
UPDATE: Nah, I do have one thing to say right now. I'm frankly surprised (very pleasantly surprised, but surprised nonetheless) to see them giving a trophy to Albert Pujols, that says "2004 National League Championship Series Most Valuable Player".
Surprised because it's seemed that this series has been "The Carlos Beltran Show", and I was expecting Beltran to get the series MVP award, no matter whether the Astros won or lost. I suppose the "give the MVP to the star of the winning team" rule kicked in there (not that Albert "The Great" doesn't deserve it, he does).
