Since the year 2000, the St. Louis Cardinals have won the NL Central nine times. They have appeared in the playoffs 12 times. They have played in National League Championship Series nine times, advancing to the World Series four times and ultimately hoisted the World Series trophy in 2006 and 2011. I haven’t enjoyed any of it. That’s not true. I did enjoy Game Six of the 2011 World Series. My favorite team was not involved in the game, I had no money on the game and I still found myself pacing around the apartment as it unfolded. It was a rough one on the ol’ ticker.
