Yankess and Cardinals win and it looks like the A's are going to get knocked out of the playoffs altogether. More data points to support my "life is shit" thesis.
Fuck youuuuuuu, Yankees! FUCK YOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!
many tine tanies
Wow, Paul Ryan and the Yankees lose on the same night? What demi-god did I unknowingly please?
If the World Series is Yanks-Cards, I'm going to set my eyeballs on fire.
It's a certain toxin in the air from the Potomac, I'm pretty sure. For some reason, it really hits hard somewhere around Landover constantly from September through December, but also has periodic bursts of toxicity around Chinatown in late April-early May, and apparently now by the Navy Yard in mid-October.
And as for the Orioles, despite putting up a good fight and getting everyone's hopes up, once again a walking metaphor of Capitalism run amok infiltrating and distorting a system to its own ends crushes the city of Baltimore. Just as David Simon would have written it.
The Yankees winning is depressing but it makes sense: it's the banal evil of money and power crushing all before it. They win for the same reason the U.S. Cavalry beat the Plains Indians. The Cardinals, though...they're as awful as the Yankees in their own smug Midwestern way, but the way they win suggests a darker, more terrifying truth. Stumbling into that title w/ a .500 team in 2006, that insane run last season, that game last night...that's supernatural. It suggests that "evil" isn't just the word we give to our own petty selfishness, but a conscious force. The Yankees are Adolf Eichmann. The Cardinals are Randall fucking Flagg.
