Bummer arrived earlier this year


As everyone knows, there are really only two seasons in the year. Summer is the nice one. Bummer is the other one. The former starts with the first pitch in earnest during Major League Baseball’s spring training. I usually deem summer to end with the last pitch of the World Series.

But not this year. Last night saw my St. Louis Cardinals trashed and humiliated by a bunch of wild boys of summer in San Francisco Giants uniforms. It happened in AT&T Park, out of which no homers ever fly. Well, almost none. It is a beautiful park, but one would think that those yahoos would treat their honorable opponents with more respect. Down three games to one, they won three in a row to win the dubious honor of facing the Detroit Tigers in the World Series starting tomorrow. Not only that, the hapless Cards scored only a single run in all three games. It’s rather hard to win games that way.

Like my team, I have just run out of gas and cannot bring myself to stick around for the rest of my summer. Bummer here I come, ready to sleep out the remaining months until February of 2013.

I still don’t see how they could do that to us! My team are all such nice, clean-cut kids. Like we hear from the cute Cubbies, just wait until next year. And the year after that, and… .

Dave, and it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out at the ol’ ball game.

    But during the last few years, IPTV has dwarfed the
    grade of DVD and Cable TV. By the process, you are reinforcing that negativity and attracting to
    yourself MORE. The Vi – O comes pre set most abundant
    in widely used mobile devices, which include Blackberry, i – Pod, i – Phone
    amongst others.
