    At least the Cards lost

    I know the "post-season scoreboard watching..." thread might already have covered some of this sentiment. But I just wanted to put it out there.

    That is all.

    I get no joy out of it.

    No joy. Just less pain.

    This. I think it would be sour grapes to root against the Giants. But to root for your division rival not to win? That's baseball.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Fixed that for you. I feel the same way in football, I always cheer for the AFC team in the Super Bowl unless its Denver, KC, NE (I usually just hope for great commercials). Just can't bring myself to cheer for any of them for a wide range of reasons.

    I likewise feel the pain lessen knowing that I won't have to put up with the sports world slobbering all over St Louis as they "do it again". I'll likely watch at least some of the series as I don't have any real problems with either Detroit or San Fran because the hurt was self inflicted as we failed so many times vs San Fran. Cardiac Kids is usually a pretty good storyline in sports and we'll see if the "underdog" who has "perceivered" through so much this post season has a play on the national stage and boosts ratings higher than what SF vs Det normally would carry.

    Wow...homophobia run rampant.
    I don't think a requirement of employment should be that you can never offend people. It's high time folks deal with being offended. It's another example of how we're becoming a bunch of wimps. - Person offended by NFL players not standing for national anthem.

    Wow. Quite the homophobe fest.

    It's almost like they forgot they shouldn't have even been in the playoffs.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    It's locker room talk, not sensitivity training. Being politically correct is not a prerequisite in every venue

    Public social media is a locker room?

    I hate PC garbage as well, but that wasn't locker room talk, or just Un-PC. That was disgusting, vile and hateful. The N word was used several times. I've been in plenty of locker rooms, and heard lots of locker room talk. never heard any talk like that, ever.

    Seriously, you're wrong. Would you rather someone insult your family in a locker roiom or on social media where the whole world can read it?
