why I write this blog


I went to my first Cardinals' game with my family when I was eight. My favorite player from that era was Vince Coleman for a couple of reasons. (1) I've always been especially partial to outfielders, and (2) he had very impressive baserunning skills. I remember watching Ozzie Smith and Willie McGee in their primes. I didn't really understand what "Whitey-ball" was, but I knew it was revolutionary and important, and I knew it made baseball fun to watch. My dad always brought the binoculars along when we went to games because he insisted that the bleachers were the best seats at Busch--as long as you didn't care if you could see anything. He also brought along the walk-man so he could listen to the play-by-play on the radio. I lost touch with my baseball roots for a while, but I have re-discovered them and now celebrate the game with as much enthusiasm as anyone. Even though I grew up with the Redbirds, I consider this to be my Cardinals generation and these to be my players. I have lots of opinions and ideas about the games, the plays, the players, the opposition, the coaches, the front office, the umpires, the league, the division, and the season, and I'll share as many of them here as I can, within reason. If you agree/ disagree/ don't understand, feel free to comment. Actually, I appreciate the input.
Go Cards!
