"Slarrow" refers to the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" from Hamlet's soliloquy. Here are the chronicles of such darts and whatever attempt there may be to take arms against such a sea of troubles.

The Cardinals Win The Pennant! The Cardinals Win The Pennant!

For the first time in 17 years, I'll get to see the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series.

Man, that was some good baseball. Jeff Suppan outpitched Roger Clemens, Albert Pujols and Scott Rolen came up big, and some of the Cards like Womack and Tavarez gutted it out there on the field. After the heartbreaks of the past few years--Daryl Kile's death, the Johnson-Schilling monster in 2001, Rick Ankiel's meltdown--this was sooo sweet.

What a gutsy performance from a team that's been consistently underrated all year. What a great time to be a baseball fan. What a great day to be part of Cardinal Nation.

Go Cards!!
