I witnessed 2 deaths today. The first death occurred in the 6th inning of the Cards/Brewers game. Our TV truck died. We lost all power to the mobile unit for about 20 minutes. But, miraculously, our TV truck came back to life. The second death I witnessed today was the playoff chances of the Milwaukee Brewers. Before they had even lost today's game by the score of 9 - 1, they were done. They were done mentally. They were done physically. They botched relay throws and showed no effort on a catchable foul ball. Done. In first place for 150 days this season and now they will not make the postseason. Yes, the Brewers postseason hopes died today. I know. I watched it. Unlike the TV truck they will not come back to life.
