On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
The Cardinals begin their final regular season home series tonight with the first of three games against the Reds at Busch Stadium. John Lackey puts his 13-and-9 mark up against Cincinnati's David Holmberg, who is 1-and-1. The Cards play at Chicago and Arizona next week.
