My wife and I are both Canadian and baseball to us is about the same as mayan handball is to the rest of the world – a complete non-issue. So this morning, when my wife announced that the Cardinals had won the World Series, we had an interesting conversation:
Me: “Cardinals… that’s St. Louis isn’t it?
Her: “I don’t know. The TV said Texas and St. Louis yesterday.”
Me: “So it is St. Louis, then.”
Her: “How do you know?”
Me: “The other team had ‘Texas’ written on their shirts.”
Her: “Oh, then I guess St. Louis won!”
And now we know – St. Louis won the world series.
