With Leather’s Watch This: People Are Going To Complain About This Wild Card Thing

I absolutely hate this new MLB wild card scenario. I think it’s utter hooey, and I’m sorry for being so vulgar. It’s important to remember, too, that I’m a classy and intelligent St. Louis Cardinals fan, and I still think this wild card play-in game is crap. Yes, the rule is the only reason that my underachieving team is even playing for a chance to be in the playoffs today, and I still hate it. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, I HATE IT.

It’s simply not fair to the Atlanta Braves, Texas Rangers, and Baltimore Orioles. And don’t give me none of that “Well it wouldn’t have been fair for the Rangers or Orioles and their 93 wins either” because they still would have had a play-in game, and I’m damn grateful for the convenience of their matching records, because otherwise my argument would have sucked more than it probably already does. By midnight tonight, we’re going to have two upset fan bases, and the AL fans will really deserve to be pissed. The NL fans, perhaps not as much. Either way, Bud Selig will probably give himself another raise.

I’m a pessimist by nature, so I think the Braves are going to win, because they’re playing with chip(per)s on their shoulders. What’s funny to me is how pissed off some BARVES fans are at the Cardinals, as if it’s their fault that the Braves completely fell to shit last year. Whatevs, blame who you want and enjoy the playoffs… maybe.

I’m certainly not trying to revel in misery, but I’m eager to see how pissed off the fans of the losing team are when their team doesn’t win. Sorry, I just love watching people hate Bud Selig.

Forget this game, how about those dicks at Utah giving us raging blue balls last night like they were going to beat USC. Bunch of jerks.
