Well, nobody can say Madame Karnak doesn’t go out graciously. My Diamondbacks didn’t turn out to be the Team of Destiny this season. The St. Louis Cardinals did. And I congratule them and their fans on a fantastic feat.
It has become a cliche to say that they “came out of nowhere” to win it. And it isn’t true. They had to be somewhere, because legions of loyal Cards fans were with them all year. And they stayed there, rooting for them from beginning to end. Through the years, they’ve been among the most steadfast of major league fans.
I, likewise, am a D-Backs fan even when they lay sad little snake eggs. They did very well this year, and I’m quite proud of them. They didn’t win it all, but I think they will — and soon.
No more bold predictions, though. Madame Karnak has laid enough sad little snake eggs.
