A Proud Member of Cardinal Nation since 1981

A lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan, inside the "old" Busch Stadium

It’s the crack of the bat that sends our player home.
It’s the Seventh Inning Stretch.
It’s the view of the St. Louis skyline beyond the outfield and The Arch as the dramatic backdrop.
It’s Big Mac Land.
It’s the statue of St. Louis’ favorite son, Stan "The Man" Musial, poised eternally “at bat.”
It’s Fredbird.
It’s “The Wizard.”
It’s the old Busch Stadium and those iconic 96 arches, now gone forever.
It’s the new Busch Stadium and that fabulous view.
It’s growing up with the booming voice of Jack Buck announcing the plays on KMOX Radio.
It’s Game Six.
It’s having a beer and a hot dog at every game. Always.
It’s the majestic Clydesdales making their grand appearance.
It’s Darryl Kile.
It’s beating the Cubs. Always.

It’s the Boys of Summer and, after winning the 2011 World Series (sorry Becky); they’re finally back in town. And as we like to say in St. Louis, “Go Crazy, Folks, Go Crazy!”
