Mechanical Problems Force Cardinals To Switch Planes; Cause Many Obstruction Jokes

Mechanical problems prevented the Cardinals’ team plane from taking off in St. Louis today. The team finally boarded another plane, after a six-hour delay. Twitter responded predictably.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

“We’ve been sitting on the plane here for a couple hours with some mechanical difficulties,” manager Mike Matheny said in a quickly arranged conference call with a few members of the media already at Fenway Park. “There’s another plane en route in case they can’t get this one to where it needs to be. But right now everybody is just kind of waiting around and anticipating either this plane to get fixed or another one to show up, so we can get on our way.”

    Albert Pujols was on track to achieve the Triple Crown in 2010 UNTIL he appeared onstage at Glenn Beck’s rally in Washington, DC that used the same spot on which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I have a dream” speech. Pujols went into a slump immediately thereafter and hasn’t hit .300 since then. Karma is a bitch, man.
