If I Could Go Back to Any Game

If I Could Go Back to Any Game

The January United Cardinal Blogger project is a fun one. If I had a ticket and a time machine which game in Cardinal past would I attend? I went to the last regular season game at old Busch Stadium and the first at the new Busch. I got to experience the final game of the […]

2015 Winter Warm-Up Preview

With the weather warming up here in St. Louis, I have decided to get back to this blogging thing. Let’s just say it was better for me not to blog during the month of November. Between being busy at work and not really being able to share my opinions, I silenced my own public forum […]

St. Louis Cardinals 2014, So Far

The St. Louis Cardinals are 30-29 and over one third of the way thru a long MLB season. The majority of their early games have been on the road. Finally they came home more during May and many thought that would help them. Well it has, a little (thinking optimistically). Tinkering with the lineup has […]

Cookie Party

I love cookies! I love Christmas! So it would make a lot of sense that I love Christmas cookies. I am not sure what makes a cookie a Christmas cookie to you but I know what it means to me. Christmas cookies are cookies that are special because family or friends share them with you […]

From Furlough Fuzz to Playoff Patch

Last night the Senate and House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution to bring back all Federal employees to work and include back pay. This current CR now takes us thru January 15, 2014. Committees will be created to work on a budget to fund different branches of the Government for the remainder of Fiscal […]

Call Me What You Will

Recently I was called a redneck. More specifically I was told I was a ‘small town, redneck hick who is uneducated, has low self esteem and had an unpleasant upbringing.’ I think this person was trying to offend me. Nah, not me. Not the guy who doesn’t want to be normal. I kind of laughed […]


Yeah I know I haven’t written anything in a while. Life gets in the way. I also never write about asking for help. There are things that go on daily in our lives where we require the support of others. Not very often do we thank those that give us that support. I did this […]

12 Days of Christmas

12 Days of Christmas

Some of you may not know that there are really twelve days to Christmas.  The 12 days mark the time from Christmas to Epiphany.  Epiphany is the time the Wise Men came to deliver their gifts to the baby Jesus.   For more information read Matthew 2: 1-12.  Some cultures celebrate Epiphany with a King’s Cake […]

2011- The White World of Sports

I just wanted to take a few moments to reflect on 2011.  It was an exciting year in sports.  The St. Louis Rams got us excited thinking they were gonna make the playoffs to start the year.  St. Louisans got all revved up in the time leading up to that one Sunday evening in Seattle.  […]

I’m Disappointed Cardinals Nation

Let me start off by saying that I was shocked when I heard Albert Pujols signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for 10 years and 254 million dollars.  No trade clause included.  Shocked. Stunned.  I really thought there was no way he would leave St. Louis.  Baseball is a business and if you […]
