That's a Winner!

Oh what a great day it was for baseball in St. Louis. The temps were right around 80 and the Cardinals were HOT! The Cubs...well not so much.

Aaron was right about the Cub fans being annoying. I was practically surrounded by them. They did quiet down for while after the Cardinals took the lead...but it didn't last too long. If they put a man on base they would fall right back into the false hope that they have been living with for the past century.

Actually, they have a decent team. When Lee starts hitting in the top half of the order and Soto starts hitting in the bottom half they'll have a good batting lineup. Cub fans will tell you that they're also waiting for Bradley to get back to good health but I think that he's a ticking time bomb that should be out of baseball.

After the game, I headed over to Ted Drewe's where I met up with Mike and Claudia.

I'm working off of the hotel computers (left the laptop at home) tonight. When I get home I'll post pics from Hannah's prom night. (or you can join the latest greatest time suck and visit me on Facebook)

Sorry that I missed Andy, Buel and Chad in SGF, but ministry calls (that and Cardinal baseball). Andy, Buel and Chad...the ABC's of St. Louis TRACON! Catch you guys another time! My vote is still for sale...wait that only happens in Illinois.

Have a great Sunday!

"or you can join the latest greatest time suck and visit me on Facebook". Thanks for getting me completely addicted to Scramble. There goes what little sleep I already had.

I know even less about baseball than I do about computers! Glad you had fun though and I'm jealous ( in a good way! ) that you got to hang out with Mike and Claudia!

Mike H., glad to share the curse...just say no! (or one more game, which ever works for you)

Good to hear about the fun time you had. I have to admit that I've never been to ANY sort of live sports game. Must put it down as something to try. I'd like to target an F1 race.....is that a sport?

The east coast bloggers go out drinking when they get together. The midwest ones go to Ted Drews. I think we win.

We watched the Cubbies farm team in Round Rock last season . . . the farm team's fans were annoying then. . . however there were some drunk Texans who also "hit my last nerve". . .
That sounded like my ideal kind of day for baseball. . . sunshine. . . and hope . . . all baseball fans ever do. . .hope

You are busy, busy, busy and loved hearing about baseball. I am about as confused about baseball as almost all other sports but do love going to the games. Hope you are well!

Sorry I missed you at Tower Grove. We would have enjoyed being there. Mike told me you were preaching there...but I forgot.

Baseball is a lot of fun. It has been a while since I've gone to a game. Sounds like you had a great time.
