Busch Stadium

After celebrating a very long but exciting day at Busch Stadium for the Blogger event, it became apparent that a tradition needed to be started here for our three loyal readers. The Cardinals put us up in some amazing digs and to honor that a new segment will be running every few weeks (or when [...]

Yep, it felt good just to walk up to the stadium knowing that real baseball would be played inside it after the long, cruel winter.  It also felt good knowing that there were plent of bathrooms inside said stadium since I’d been practically chugging water since leaving home that morning. With Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, [...]

I’ve never warmly embraced the end of MLB’s regular season, even when the Cardinals were headed to the playoffs.  There’s just something about the end of the regular season that signals a change in the air.  It’s the unofficial beginning of “true” fall for those of us who live in denial of what the modern Gregorian calendar indicates every [...]
