by Nick December 11, 2012

This bit of news is a few weeks old, but I wanted to share for multiple reasons. One, someone had a chance at, and presumably won, a fishing trip with Chris Carpenter.  I wonder if they listened to this before bidding?

Cardinals add alternate uniform, opinions abound

by Nick November 19, 2012

The Cardinals officially announced Friday that they are adding a third uniform to their wardrobe (yes, uniform – the pants will be Heritage White also) to wear during Saturday home games.
