Remember that life is good

Whatever the intertube drama du jour, don't forget the joys of family and loved ones. Whether you celebrate a holiday this year or not, remember to be thankful for what we do have in life. Honor your friends, family, both human and furry, and celebrate.

As a woman, I celebrate my sisters--by both birth and struggle--my friends, and the men who value us. I invite others to do the same.

51. I fully support this message.

Also I would add that years of experience around here have taught me not to take the intertube drama DU jour too seriously- because it is a mathematical near-certainty that next week, there'll be a new one... and so on, and so on, probably until the sun burns out.


So with that in mind:

54. I don't.

Personally, I'm not a big alerter, myself. Back in the days of meta, there was much discussion about greater transparency in alerting, putting #s of failed alerts on peoples profiles, etc.

Admin didn't feel it was warranted, obviously... Still I'd say I could probably count the number of alerts Ive sent in the past 6 months, on one hand.

I agree that alerting on this OP is exceedingly silly. I'd be pretty surprised if a jury didn't agree.

60. no. but it was a long stretch after. the were in World Series in 85 and 87

 

and lost both in dramatic fashion in game 7 to KC Royals and Minnesota Twins.

The next time they finally made it to the World Series was 2004 when they were swept by the Red Sox to break their long streak.

Finally, Cardinals broke through and won another in 2006 and then won the 2011 world series. They then lost the World Series to Boston again this year.

Yeah, I'm a bit of a fan!
