[Redbird Reveille] Good things and bad things

by Nick June 2, 2009

Indeed, the game wrap-up had […]

[Redbird Reveille] Ludwick, UCB Radio, Memphis loses

by Nick May 13, 2009

Yeah, I know…it’s not really reveille when it goes off at 4pm.  Consider this the “sleeping in” version of the Reveille… —– Ryan Ludwick hits the shelf.  Todd Wellemeyer gets creamed.  Lineup still not hitting.  Cards and Pirates are on the verge of combustion during this series via the beanball.

Q&A with Jake Wagman, Post-Dispatch

by Nick May 7, 2009

[Ed. note – As part of our vacation reading, I asked my Twitter buddy Jake Wagman, political reporter for the St Louis Post-Dispatch, to do a Q&A with us.  Happily, Jake obliged.  Extensively.  We couldn’t have asked for better responses.  Jake gave us some great insight into the political workings that go along with a […]
