Guitar Story

Guitar Story

At 48, I have decided to do something that I have been meaning to do ever since I wrote a lyric. Ever since I learned Cat Scratch Fever. I bought a guitar. I thought I would write something out to explain why I did this even though I don’t need to, but I know I […]

Things I Am Thankful For

Yeah. I haven’t written a blog in a while. Some of you might be thankful for that. LOL I decided I wanted to write down some of the things I have been thankful for this past year. This list will be in no particular order and I am sure will not include everything. I am […]

Wisconsin Bound

I don’t think I have ever taken a vacation that has lasted over a week or ten days at the most. I seem to remember splitting them up. Well I will be leaving July 25th to start a vacation that will take me all the way to August 9th. That’s 16 days. Sixteen days away […]

Proud Dad Moments

Sometimes I find it hard to realize how amazing of a son I have. I am the type to remind him that he can always be better. Sometimes I know he doesn’t like me but I know for damn sure that he loves me and I love him. Going into this school baseball season Josh […]

Hunt For Red October

With less than two weeks left in the regular season St. Louis Cardinals fans are getting that itch for postseason. The Cardinals are tied for first place in the National League Central Division and their magic number to clinch a birth in the playoffs stands around 5 as I am writing this. So let’s just […]

Jake Westbrook Dominoes

Jake Westbrook Dominoes

The first thing that I thought when the St. Louis Cardinals announced they agreed to pick up the option for Jake Westbrook for next year and have a mutual option for 2014 was what about the rest of the Cardinals starting pitchers?  I mean they have Adam Wainwright, Jaime Garcia, Westbrook, Lance Lynn, Joe Kelly, […]

Cool Anniversary

I was asked by fellow Cardinal Blogger, Chris Jaffe, to look at his blog today since it was a cool anniversary.  I read it and am sharing the link to it as he requested.  So I guess Chris and Hardball Times are my first guest blogger, even though it’s all his writing and I am […]

All-Star Roster Thoughts

With the All-Star Game rosters being revealed Sunday, I thought this would be a good time to share who I voted for and maybe some insight.  I am a bit of a homer at times. Let’s start in the National League: C-Buster Posey-San Francisco Giants.  Yadier Molina-St. Louis Cardinals.  Yadi is having a career year.  […]

Is Cardinals Nation Spoiled?

Recently, a few of us have noticed that on Twitter, people are whining about the St. Louis Cardinals.  I mean not just your Tyler Greene haters, but the people who are saying we should overhaul this whole team now.  Sheesh people, it’s just the start of June.  Injuries have hit this team pretty hard and […]

Matheny Era is Alive and Well

If there is any doubt that the St. Louis Cardinals have moved on from Tony LaRussa to a new style with Mike Matheny, today’s move of DFAing J.C. Romero and calling up Eduardo ‘Nasty’ Sanchez proves it.  Fresh off of a weekend that included honoring LaRussa by retiring his number, being swept by the Atlanta […]
