Well, sadly we’ve come to the end of the 2008 regular season. Our beloved Cardinals did not make the playoff for the second year in a row. But just like last year, it wasn’t without them doing everything they could to play in October. The player’s that is. The front office & coaching staff let them down big time. But I’ll get to that later. They’ve got one game to left in the year, and if they win & sweep the Reds right out of town, they’ll finish ten games above .500 for the season. And that’s something no one, not you, not me, not anyone who follows the game of baseball realistically thought this team had a snowballs chance in hell of accomplishing.
What a bad day. It is truly a sad day. LeRoi Moore, saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band died Tuesday afternoon from complications stemming from injuries he suffered from an ATV accident back in June. I didn’t even know he was hurt & sick. Like most things, because I’ve spent the last 5 years taking care of dad, I’ve lost track of what I considered my favorite band. But I still never stopped listening to their music. I can’t believe he’s gone. It seams like just yesterday I made the road trip to Cville & watched the band play an amazing concert with my friend Jeff at UVA. He’s a big DMB fan as well. I can’t believe that was 2001. How could that be? This is just awful, awful news.
On top of that, IZZY’s career could be over. If true, this truly is a sad day in Cardinal land. It’s a damn shame he didn’t get to go out on his own terms with at least 300 saves. He’s taken so much heat the past three seasons, it’s just so wrong for him & his family if this really is the end of his career.
This was just bad, bad day. Life is just so unfair. RIP LeRoi. Thanks for the memories IZZY.
Bad day. Bad, bad day.
I give you your 2008 St. Louis Cardinals bullpen

Well that was a fun 4th of July weekend wasn’t it? Every one enjoy the fireworks, BBQ’s & picnics? Wasn’t watching the Cardinals take care of those north side losers just awesome? I mean the way the O ate “Big Z” alive Friday night, and then beat those two soft tossing lefty’s into the ground Saturday & Sunday afternoons was a thing of beauty. Wasn’t it?
As we celebrate our nations birthday this long 4th of July weekend, I just want to tell every one to be safe out there. And keep in mind those who have served, and are currently serving our country overseas. No matter you opinion on the war, they all have volunteered to serve & keep our country free. Thats something you & I can’t say about ourselves.
From all of us at ATAW, thank you to all our service men & women. Without your sacrifice, our country wouldn’t be half as great as it is today.
And GO CARDINALS! Sweep those losers from the south side right out of town!
Till next time, this is Jonny Bone reminding every one, yes, even you. That the light at the end of the tunnel may be you.
Always keep makin it bounce.
Truly this is a sad day in Cardinal Nation. Because you see, our loudest pro Cardinal voice in the media has gone silent. Will Leitch has left his position as editor of Deadspin for bigger & supposedly better things. (New York Magazine? Are you F’king kidding me Will? Are you sure that’s even a real magazine?)
Any way, I don’t look at this like every one else does. Meaning the rest of the planet simply sees that Deadspin is losing its editor, it’s leader, hell even it’s very reason for existing in Will’s exodus. No, I take this loss a lot more personally because of what color I bleed. And that’s Cardinal Red.
