Halloween in Minnesota!

Growing up so far in the northern state of my beloved Minnesota, came with many fun-filled adventures that some in other warmer climates would never experience.
But the night of Halloween came with a gamble: would it Rain? Sleet? Be dry and chilly? D) A mixture of all of the above?
Once such year, it snowed.

St. Louis Cardinals WIN Game 7 - World Series 6-2!

This just in! -The Cardinals just won Game 7 of the World Series, coming back from 3-2 down in the series - and being a strike away from losing twice in Game 6 - to win their 11th title with another key hit by hometown star David Freese and six gutty innings from Chris Carpenter.

A day after an epic Game 6 that saw them twice within one strike of elimination, the Cardinals captured their 11th World Series crown. After a whole fall on the edge, Tony La Russa's team didn't dare mess with Texas, or any more drama.

Freese's two-run double tied it in the first inning against loser Matt Harrison and Allen Craig hit a go-ahead homer in the third.

Pitching on short rest, Carpenter improved to 2-0 in the Series and 4-0 in the postseason. La Russa won his third Series title.

UPDATE- Hometown hero..David awarded MVP! Congrats to him!

Wow! St. Louis Cardinals WIN game 6 in World Series!

PER AP NEWS:: The St. Louis Cardinals, who have been coming from behind throughout this season, did it again Thursday. The Cardinals came back from two runs down twice to beat the Texas Rangers 10-9 in St. Louis and force Game 7 Friday.
David Freese hit the game-winning home run in the bottom of the 11th inning.

The game swung wildly over the final innings. In the bottom of the ninth inning, the Cardinals rallied to tie the score at 7 after Freese's RBI double sailed over Nelson Cruz's head. Josh Hamilton put the Rangers ahead with a two-run home run in the top of the 10th, but St. Louis tied it in the bottom of the inning on a Ryan Theriot fielder's choice and an RBI single from Lance Berkman. Twice, the Cardinals were down to their final strike before rallying back.

Way to go David Freese!

Why I Write...

When did you first begin writing? What motivated you?
What makes us write, our motivations, origins, and unique character traits that encourage this elusive craft...
While others may paint and create objects, build towering buildings of glass and steel, why do I sit here and ponder, how they ever accomplished this? [Ed-Cause you suck at Math?]

Politics Shmalitics! My list of things to debate that means something!

Politics Shmalitics! With all the mud-slinging, and electioneering going on, I thought I'd create my own list of debate subjects. Use this as a catalyst to stop that co-worker from launching into another soap-box jaw-flapping session with you when you only wish to go and retrieve the lunch you've been daydreaming about for the last 2 hours.

Just do this, as soon as you hear, " Do YOU think Obama's going to be re-elected? Do you think Ron Paul is too old to be president?" Just smile, enact your best befuddled look and scratch the back of your ear...then fire off one of these tokens of pure legitimate debate fodder! That's right, if you don't instantly get a more amusing dialog going with your foe, at least they may go away and leave you to your lunch! I guarantee it!

I enjoy debating many things, co-worker/friend name here!:

-PC gaming Vs. Console Gaming!

-Apocalypse Now! Original Director's version, Redux, or Theatrical version!

-Global Warming, and other such political/financial motivations.

-Boxed PC games, or Direct Download/Streaming

-Aliens or Avatar - Which is Cameron's most influential movie!

-The only religion worth anything, is Pastafarianism!

-The point of the FDA, ATF, & Dept. of Education?

-Metroid or Zelda - Which was the better adventure game?

-How corn is killing us.

-Our national obesity rate. etc. etc. etc.

-The merits of Nascar Racing!

How about you all? What do you like to debate with friends/family, co-workers?
