The Cards lost to the Phillies today and we are currently flying to Pittsburgh. I am looking forward to the Pittsburgh series and I know my attitude will be in better shape. Today's game/telecast offered little, if anything, to fire up the viewer much less the TV team. I don't want to be negative but there was just something about this game that bored me to tears. If a TV sports director is bored the viewer is bored. Even though I fought it and fought it, even though I tried every director's trick in the book to fend off my ennui, the game defeated me. I never gave up but I gave in. I surrendered. I apologize.
