It was Facebook pick-em week for the column, so if you don't care too much for today's reading, well, blame technology -- it made me do it.
Occasionally I post on Facebook for column topics, but this week was a little different. I gave my list of 'friends' just five minutes to come up with topics for today's column and I told them I'd pick amongst the first 10 listed.
Just for everybody's knowledge, the list varied quite a bit. Of course there's always the favorite, 'the Cardinals will win the World Series this year even though everybody doubted them' post, then the suggestions for the high school baseball team, which oddly enough happen every time I've ever done this as well.
