The Cardinals win Game 7 of the World Series! This game was a little bit less exciting the Game six, but this still didn't disappoint. David Freese was the MVP, without question. He had a hitting streak, and hit the Walk-Off in Game 6. The Cardinals could have missed the playoffs if The Atlanta Braves didn't go into their slump. As for the Texas Rangers, this is the second straight year they fell short. All they can do is improve their roster, and try next season. However, congrats to all the teams who did make the playoffs, and especially the Brewers and the Diamondbacks. They weren't very good a season ago, and making the playoffs shows that they won't lay at the bottom. 


Happy Belated Birthday to my blog!

Indy 500 Winner Dan Wheldon dies after car crash

Dan Wheldon, the Indy 500 winner, passed away after a horrific 15 car pile-up at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Drivers did become concerned after some cars reached speeds over 220 miles an hour. In addition, the field of cars was 34, larger than other races. Dario Franchitti won the championship, but that was completely overshadowed by the crash. J.R. Hildebrand, the driver who lost the Indy 500 to Wheldon, was also hospitalized with a concussion. Will Power, who was Dario Franchitti's greatest contender, was also involved in the crash. This was the last race for Danica Patrick, who will be moving to the Nationwide Series in NASCAR full-time and a few Sprint Cup races. Wheldon will be remembered in IndyCar and elsewhere in the sports world.


MLB Postseason

The NLCS and ALCS are set! The Brewers defeated the Diamondbacks 3-2 in extra innings. Nyjer Morgan drove in the game-winning run in the 10th inning, moving the Brewers into the NLCS. They will take on the St. Louis Cardinals, who defeated Roy Halladay 1-0. Ryan Howard struggled, and went down with an injury after he grounded out to end the game.Chris Carpenter was phenomenal, giving up a few hits only. In the AL, the Detroit Tigers defeated the New York Yankees, and will take on the Texas Rangers. Here are the brackets and my predictions
