Outright jubilation broke out at the Thompson household late Friday night.

The St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series.

As improbable as it might seem, a wild card team that won a spot in the playoffs on the last game of the season, a never-say-die group of players who avoided losing the series three times in game 6, the favorite team of my St. Louis area-born wife won their 11th World Series title with a 6-2 win over the heavily-favored Texas Rangers.

Amy, of course, is ecstatic.  She grew up a Cardinal fan and never lost faith in the team’s ability to capture the championship one more time.

All is well at Chateau Thompson.
