The common lament of a pennant-race involved fan is that his team didn't give two, uh, well, you knows during a particularly frustrating defeat to a lesser opponent.
But rest assured, St. Louis Cardinals fans! For a brief time on Monday night, both the team's main website and official Twitter feed were busy assuring the public — probably unintentionally, but still — that Tony La Russa's boys really did give a pair of poops while being two-HIT by J.A. Happ(notes) in a 3-0 loss to the Houston Astros.
The unfortunate mistakes were quickly noticed by the Cards' web staff, but not before they zoomed around the Twittersphere and were gobbled up by the snafu-loving snarks over at Joe Sports Fan. With Matt Sebek's beloved Cardinals now a season-high six games behind the Reds with 33 to play (and the team 0-3 since Tony La Russa and Albert Pujols(notes) went to pow-wow with Glenn Beck) stuff like this is the only thing keeping a smile on his face these days.
