Why yes, life IS sweep
Dear Cardinals fans:
You know that feeling of smug satisfaction that you've had the last two Octobers? You know, the one stemming from how you saw the Cubs swept out of the playoffs? I'm talking, of course, about that superior feeling that comes from watching teams like Arizona and, yes, Los Angeles crushing the playoff hopes of Cub fans?
It turns out you were right. That feeling is a good one. It's not as great a feeling as a championship would be, but I have to admit I smiled when the Cardinals were helplessly swept away by the Dodgers.
Sorry about your luck, Cardinals fans. The winter is long. Go Rams?
