I've Made My Peace with St. Louis Baseball

You know, except for the 2006 World Series, when I was pretty sure I was going to explode from conflicting loyalties, I’ve pretty much settled with the fact that I’m now a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. My two oldest children wear Cards hats. I have a stuffed Fredbird. It’s happened, and I have to deal with it.

I can reconcile this because my Detroit Tigers are in the opposite league.

Because of this fandom, which has grown from the fact that I’m raising my children in this fine metropolitan area, I have to say that I’m pretty excited with how the beginning of the baseball season is progressing. There is—of course—still room for the Cards to disappoint, but they’re looking good.

It is also the reason that this picture is one of my favorite baseball photos of all time:

It literally never gets old. I thought of it completely spontaneously yesterday and felt I just had to share it with you all.

  1. TOO FUNNY! I bet '06 was a tough year for you. 2006 was my best year EVER in that respect, except perhaps for 1982. But I bring up 1982 here in Wisconsin and everyone gets all crabby on me.

    Go Cards!

    Bummer about Carpenter though.
