Never have I been less disappointed at having to miss a Cardinals game. The implicit hierarchy of sports fandom reared its ugly head again—on one headline, Chris Carpenter feeling better; on another, Rick Ankiel injured in Cardinals game. I can't be sure about this, but something seemed different in the headline—I feel like typically you injure things in a baseball headline; when you're injured, it's different.
In any case, I'm glad to see that news, right now, is receding back into the injured x category. Pretty soon we can go back to accepting, as a group, that baseball is the most important thing that can happen on a baseball field.
Anyway, I've got one more night of Anthropology-related sabbatical to spring on you; I'll try to do some news and notes for the game thread. Heal up that arm, Carp; heal up, Rick.
