Here are a few photos of my wife and I in St Lou this past weekend.

We went to the game Friday night. It was a tribute to Stan Musial. There was a group playing "Take Me out to the ball Game" on their harmonica's. We all got one with Stan's name on it.

It was pretty cold. About 45 degrees with a 20 mile an hour wind. I had several layers on and wished I had more.

We were in the park about a hour before the start and there was almost no one there. So different than a Packers game.

A great many people around us were more interested in talking than watching the game. Many left early despite the game being very close. (Ended up being 2-0.) Maybe it was the cold.

I am not done putting pictures on but I will say this- The crowd booed him in the first inning of every game then kind of ignored him until the 8th or 9th inning.

Braun for the first two games:
Friday 0-4 3 strikeouts
Saturday 0-3 3 strikeouts. He was doing so bad they pulled him out of the game.
Sunday 1-5 1 hr 2 rbi but he still left 5 runners on base

I will take this every series all year long.

For Kevin:

Braun's first strike out against Wainwright on Saturday. I took it knowing he was struggling at the plate and he would do something before the weekend was over but his ineptitude would outweigh his few successes.

Saturday's game was a 3:15 start. they gave a way a very cheap replica jersey. People went ape over them. There was a line 3 blocks long. Since I got a decent one when I ordered football jerseys with Kevin and Co I will use that one when I paint or slop hogs or something.

The view from outside the stadium was from our hotel room. They are working on commercial development in the lot. Stores, restaurants. Anheuser will have something.

Once again we got in early. Because it was a little warmer and people wanted the jerseys there are a few more people in the stands.

We had the Uecker seats. There was a little breeze that hit us in the back. I didn't mind it too much but we were in the shade so it was a little chilly at times for me. Rhonda loved it.

A few scenes from the park Arch and the museum below.

I love the photo of Neil Armstrong and the stagecoach.

She has her morning cup of coffee and some sunshine along with her son's jacket. Life is good.

I offered to take a photo of some others in the park so the guy who took ours dropped onto the steps to get the top of the arch into our picture. We laughed.

I knew dad didn't have many years left so I wanted my brother's and sister to go in and buy him a brick paver outside the new stadium. They went and got him something else. When he heard what my plan was he loved it. He wanted my name on it too. (I suppose it makes it seem less like a tombstone that way.) It was up to me to come up with the wording. I tried to keep it from looking like a tombstone. We are both older than the ages on the paver. The dates are the years we each decided to follow the team.

I took a picture of the event that caused Dad to follow the Cardinals.

A few of the statues outside the park.

Let's play a game. I'll give you a quote, you tell me who said it...

"It's very emotional, it's telling family members, friends and coaches, you know, it's former teammates to try to get ahold of, you know, that I'm coming clean and being honest. It's the first time they've ever heard me, you know, talk about this. I hid it from everybody."

I absolutely love it! You are finally equality the cheater Braun with the cheater McGwire. That is the first step toward recovery. Admitting Braun is a cheating douchebag and deserves to be punished.

For the record, I knew McGwire cheated when he was with the Cardinals and I had no respect for him then or now. My Dad and I had many discussions about how I felt about him.

No sir. I simply think it is hypocritical to continue labeling Ryan Braun something he is not, while your team proudly supports a cheater on its team. Big Grin

McGwire is not on the Cardinal team nor coaching staff. I have nothing to do with him nor does the Cardinal organization.

The only reason Braun is "not" is due to a weak technicality. Reporters saw that McGwire had Creatine in his locker during a post game interview and asked him about it when he first came over to St Louis. He closed his locker and would not talk to them any more.

While it had been banned in other sports it was not banned in MLB at the time. I stopped supporting him then and there. It was only a technicality that kept Mark off the hook in some peoples eyes but not mine. So you won't find the hypocrisy on me that you seem to carry around.

edit
I found the article I was refering to. It was back in 1998 so my memory was a little fuzzy, In addition to Creatine, which I don't think is banned, McGwire also had Androstenedione in his locker.
