The Feeder Feed: between (extra) innings edition

It is the break between WS6 inning 9 and inning 10.

A shot taken today from the feeder: the first male Cardinal I have seen in weeks.

    Oh my goodness, what is the score?..I am scouring the Net for news…

  2. I think MLB will have live updates. But it is rather exciting. I suppose I could temporarily grant SlingBox access… but … I use it on the road.

  3. Supertradmum says:

    Thanks, I am now on the MLB site.
    Go Cards….

  4. Peggy R says:

    I couldn’t watch any more. Had to turn off Joe Buck. Listening to KMOX. Surprised and anxious, anxious, anxious! Get rid of Holliday and we start hitting. Yeah!

    I hope your cardinal is a good omen.

    This is a great game…

  6. Supertradmum says:

    I just found this MLB Gameday site. Several of the players are from my hometown team, the River Bandits, of Davenport, Iowa. Go, Cards…

  7. Peggy R says:

    David Freese. Hometown hero! He is STL native and was NLCS MVP. God’s team, I tell ya!

    See ya tomorrow.

  8. Supertradmum says:

    I guess the telephone in the dugout/bullpen communication could be heard tonight. Yeah, Cardinals…

  9. Tom says:

    I have never seen a game like that! Probably never will again. That has to be one for the history books.

    ite, cardinales!

    Awesome game! Totally worth the way I’ll be dragging at work this afternoon.

    P.S. to Fr. Z — we’ve had the most amazing year for cardinals (the feathered ones) here in south Texas. Lots of them, all the time.

    Heard they’re going for game 7, enough already! I have a BIG problem with “men” who run bases (or shoot hoops, or spike footballs), for mega-millions of dollars each year. How hard are you working for that money??

    That little cardinal looks like he’s talking to you! He should come to PA; he’ll look dazzling in tomorrow’s snow, have mercy!

  13. Random Friar says:

    Best. Game. Ever.

    Hello Fr. Z,

    It might well have been a sign.

    I recall a friend who found a dead cardinal on his front walk the morning of Game 6 in 1985 (the infamous Denkinger fiasco). I’m relieved to see that yours was alive and well (and magnificently red).

    That was an exhausting game to watch.

    That glorious-looking cardinal at your feeder must have been a sign, Father Z! [ducks]
    I heard part of the game on the radio while trying to fall asleep in a house with no heat, but switched it to an FM station which I usually listen to overnight.
    Then I heard the final score (and what led up to it), and I was jarred awake!
    Heard some of the highlights before I got up, on a local sports station that is affiliated with ESPN.
    Wow! What an ending!
    Bet there were a lot of groggy fans going to work and / or school with laryngitis or sore throats from all the yelling and screaming they did at the game!
    Game 7 is going to be a hard act to follow!
    ‘Ite, Cardinales’, quoth jonesmj1!

  16. Excellent game. Although I live in Texas and am a Ranger’s Fan, I still get choked up watching the joy from the winning team. All the players work so hard.

    Just as the 8th inning was over here, the electricity went out in our area. Instead of getting upset I dashed for batteries to put in a radio and lit candles so I could see where I was going. As soon as the 9th inning was over, on came the TV and lights. I figure God was testing our patience. I can’t wait to see what happens tonight.

    God bless him, but I sure hope that Alexi Ogando doesn’t pitch tonight. When Wash put him in last night, that is when the game took a turn against the Rangers.

    Am I the only one here who had wanted Texas to win?

  18. ocds says:

    Denita –
    No, you weren’t.

  19. Supertradmum says:

    Just woke up to find out the Cardinals have won the World Series. Wow! Talk about “come back kids.” My whole family will be so happy. I did not see any of it, and the last time I was at a game was in 2004. However, I am glad and really wished I could have seen some of it. Go, Cards, in 2012.
