This Daniel Descalso Character Looks Familiar [CARDINALS]

It would be a bold-faced lie if we told you that we watched the entire Cardinals game, or even one full inning.  Sorry Redbirds, it’s premier week.  And, you stink.  When given a choice between watching Sofia Vergara and a lineup that features a Pagnozzi not named “Tom”, we’ll choose Vergara every time. Nevertheless, we [...]

The Cardinals have an affinity for “Eastbound and Down”

Every now and then, MLB integrates graphical advertisement into their online game schedules.  They’re usually inconsequential, but we couldn’t help chuckle at the recent embedded marketing for HBO’s “Eastbound and Down” on the St. Louis Cardinals’ September schedule. Hey, don’t say MLB doesn’t know their fans. It’s perfectly reasonable to think that a Cardinals fan [...]

The Worthless Card Awards: St. Louis Edition

After spending our childhood believing that sports cards were the cardboard equivalent of a 401k, collectors from our era were forced to the realize that they will never be worth anything financially. This day in age, their only value is the pure entertainment that comes with mocking them.  With that in mind, today we introduce the local [...]

The Highest and Lowest of Cardinals Fan Jerseys

This season, Cardinals fans saw some hefty numbers on the backs of their home team’s uniforms.  The topic was interesting enough that local Cardinals blogger, Fungoes.net, researched what Tony La Russa lineup produced the highest (and lowest) uniform-number total.

Don’t Worry St. Louis, Eric Crouch is Alive and Well [RAMS]

Earlier this week, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush relinquished his 2005 Heisman Trophy due to USC recruiting violations and allegations.  Frankly, we see this whole thing as a non-issue since he’s been with Kim Kardashian.  Suddenly, a little bronze football statue seems irrelevant when you consider that voluptuousness. Anyway, that hasn’t stopped every [...]

Jon Hamm Constructs an All-Time St. Louis Blues Lineup [BLUES]

Jon Hamm seems to be just about everywhere these days.  Television, print, web, everywhere. Add “weird internet interview that was supposed to feature chatter about his new film…but instead asked him about his dream hockey lineup” to the list.
