Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between local, national, and blog [...]

It’s time.  Yes, it’s time for the UCB (United Cardinal Bloggers) members to pat each other on the back and remind each other just how awesome we think we are.  Okay, I’m exaggerating…slightly.  It is actually time for the UCB members to vote on the various annual awards which honor various people and blogs for [...]
