10/9/2015 – Cardinals’, rookie, first baseman, Stephen Piscotty hit this Pedro Strop pitch into a conniption for a two-run homer to put the finishing touches on the first game of the Cards/Cubs series.

I feel like I did when I was a little kid and my Dad came home with Tigers or Red Wings tickets. Tonight, the baseball playoffs begin and Thursday the NHL season starts.
I believe I was telling Sark last night at the bar, how despite my propensity to squander money, notwithstanding the $12 Comerica Park, chicken fingers, horrification I was going to start an austerity program. Hmmm, I’m afraid that will have to wait.
You see, I had my fantasy hockey draft last night. I was able to get Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Dylan Larkin. I woke up this morning so excited that I got on NHL dot com just to peruse the new merchandise. I didn’t plan on purchasing anything, you understand. Then I ran across this.
What was I to do?
This was unfair trade practices on the part of the NHL and the Edmonton Oilers. Orange in my favorite color. Royal blue/purple are a close second. I’ve been awaiting the arrival of McDavid for over a year. McDavid was my first draft pick on my fantasy team. I have tickets to the Wings – Oilers game. Couple the aforementioned with my excitement, and well, austerity will be there tomorrow.
