WOW! What a game! If you did not see game 6 of the Word Series last night, then go to YouTube, call your friends, post an Ad on Craigslist or do whatever it takes…Just get a copy!
I grew up in St. Louis from age 9 on (after Vail). My family has been in St. Louis for 200 years now I think? So yes, we are an OLD St. Louis family. A few friends of ours got together and bought the team years ago from Gussie Busch (owner of Budweiser Beer Brewery etc), one of the true great men to ever grace this planet. When you grow up in St. Louis, you love baseball – NO – you LOVE THE CARDINALS and learn baseball from the best! I remember watching Lou Brock breaking and setting records, Ozzie Smith back-flipping out onto the field and Whitey Herzog, what A legend! (thanks Dad for letting me be late for school!)
For those of you whom do not know, St. Louis IS BASBEBALL TOWN AMERICA…Period. Only the New York Yankees can claim more World Series championships and Boston can hang their stinky “wanna-be” socks on their “green monster” wall to dry! No matter what, if you REALLY know baseball, you know what I am saying. If you don’t believe me, then I invite you to come to a game in St, Louis – any day – any time, it will blow your mind how the entire City is Alive with RED and the Cardinals stream through the blood of everyone in unison, good or bad.
I predict the Cardinals will win another World Series tonight, another Game 7 -another ring- and food for an entire city to feed off yet once again, like Filet Mignon & Lobster tail with a fine Champagne. If not, it does not matter, we will be back again and again and again…. because “We are the Cardinals, the Mighty Mighty Cardinals”….and we LOVE our baseball!
