I made a small amount of progress on the garage cleanup.
And then I settled down to read a week's worth of newspapers. I flipped on MLB Network as being relatively innocuous and got to watch the Twins beat the Cardinals in Game 7 of the 1987 World Series. I had forgotten exactly how many missed calls there were by the umpiring crew in that game, but they probably had no effect on the ultimate outcome.
Then I got to watch the Cardinals beat the Rangers in Game 7 of the 2011 World Series. :) All things considered, that may well have been the Cardinals most unlikely World Series winner.
