Why I Missed the Capricon Meeting

daisy_knotwise gave me a pass to watch game four of the World Series. (She also gave a pass to Helen, who's from Detroit and is a Tigers fan, because she believes in being evenhanded.) So I skipped tonight's Capricon meeting and watched a really exciting game of baseball.

The Cardinals finally took a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the seventh, coughed it up in the top of the eighth to give a 4-4 tie, then scored once in the bottom of the eighth on a David Eckstein double off the left fielder's outstretched glove. Wainwright (who gave up the tying double in the top of the eighth) set down the Tigers in order in the top of the ninth to preserve his vultured win.

The Cardinals now lead the World Series three games to one, as the improbable series of events continues. Of course, the TV graphic notes that the last time the Cards led a World Series by this margin was in 1985 vs. the Kansas City Royals and I still remember what happened then.

On the other hand, Don Denkinger is safely in retirement.

I'll continue to cross my fingers.
