It’s the Cardinals!!

St. Louis Cardinals scored 4 runs in the 9th inning to eliminate the Washington Nationals and will face the San Francisco Giants in the National League Championship Series.  This was the largest comeback in a post season winner take all game.  Interesting to note: all four of the division series went to the max, 5 games!

NO FED in Shanghai Masters final.  I am not happy!  Fed lost to Andy Murray 6-4, 6-4 and he looked very sluggish in doing so.  Earlier, Djokovic took care of Berdych, 6-3,6-4, so he will face Murray in tomorrow’s championship match.  The next event is the Paris Masters and then it is onto London for the Year End Finals. (Federer will play his hometown tournament in Basel, Switzerland as well).  Hope Roger can perform better in Paris and London.  He has a lot of points to defend at these two final events in order to hold onto the number 1 ranking.

Are we ready for some football?  Today’s marque games are Notre Dame hosting Stanford (two highly regarded academic institutions) and a great SEC match up with South Carolina visiting Baton Rouge to take on LSU.  This is a battle between two interesting personalities as far as respective coaches;  the old ball coach, Spurrier, wearer of the visor, and the mad hatter, Les Miles, wearer of the hat!!  Looking forward to both of these games.
