My Favorite Post of the Year

Today I'm getting a kitty-kat and it reminded me of this particular post.  I'm going to call her, Isabelle...or izzy for short.  Izzy??  Like many, I hated izzy in 06 and booed the ever loving hell out of him.  Then, like a refurbished T-100 terminator, Izzy came back in 07 and badder then ever.  Handing the ball to izzy in 07 was automatic.  Nobody had a chance with his knuckle curve.  Then we all know what happens next, Sarah Conner  crushed the ever coming Terminator.  Not only was it the end of Izzy, but a symbolic end to a entire era of Cardinals baseball. 

That night when Izzy threw one of his last innings as a Carinal, the next day The Red Baron made this breath taking and touching post and kung fu'd a quote that was not only the most profound thing I've read at VEB, but almost anywhere else.

"One by one, all of our heroes have fallen; time gets us all in the end."

Here's my favorite post of the year, with an Honorary Mention for Best Supporting Comment in a touching thread by Scoot

My favorite comment of the year...by Mattybobo

"the winner of the national league is actually the champion of baseball. then there’s the american league, which plays something a lot like baseball, only the pitchers don’t have to hit, and according to official rules only teams from boston and new york are allowed to compete for the championship. then the winner of baseball (NL) and bizarro-ball play in a seven game exhibition “world series”.
