Congratulations, St. Louis Cardinals, World Series Champions 2006. No one can argue that you didn't outplay the Detroit Tigers. Nice job.
Jim Leyland, the Tigers manager, gave the classiest statement on his team's loss. He very graciously sucked up the blame for them. It's a perfect template of humility and candor for Washington politicians to emulate in conceding defeat.
I know, I know...when pigs fly out of my ear, right? Oh well, October baseball is over and it's back to politics as usual.
