No matter how many years pass, few of us old enough to understand the scope of what happened on September 11, 2001 will ever forget those video images of planes flying through skyscrapers, which then crumbled into dust. Perhaps out of psychological necessity, we have distanced ourselves from the visceral emotions of that day.
The Cardinals and Cubs now play Game Four of their NLDS this afternoon at Wrigley Field. John Lackey gets the start for St. Louis, while Chicago sends Jason Hammel to the hill. First pitch is at 3:37 p.m. If necessary, the Cardinals will host a deciding Game Five on Thursday.
