“BUTJOLS” makes another appearance

This week, the Cardinals embarked upon yet another home/home series with the Kansas City Royals.  Typically, that means “one home series for each team”, but for this particular series it means, “the Cardinals play in front of a home crowd in St. Louis and Kansas City”.

In 2011, we captured the gentleman below at Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City.

Oh, that patchwork.  It looks like this guy constructed his product with a Swiss Army knife and a few safety pins.  And the two MLB logos on the collar are a nice touch.

This effort was good enough to land this fan in our “Hall of Fame“.

But a lot has changed since 2011.  Billy Butler is still kicking it with the Royals, but Albert Pujols is a lost artifact from the cross-state rivalry.  But that didn’t prevent this fan from making the rounds yet again this week at Kaufmann Stadium with the Cardinals in town.

Odd habits die hard.

Namely, promoting horrific jersey concoctions and tucking said jerseys into khaki shorts.

It could be that our brain synapses are clogged with an overabundance of bro, but it appears that this is a different man than the one in 2011.  Did that man sell the jersey?  Did he have a friend that borrowed the jersey?  Is this a father/son combo with two different jerseys?

Oh, mind blown.

 

PHOTOS: Blues/Kings Game 5

With the Blues back home for a pivotal game five of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the club held a pep rally outside Scottrade Center. The team saw it as an opportunity to showcase its rabid fan base.

Bluesiers saw it as an opportunity to let the demons in their heads run wild.

The inexplicable “Go Blues” referee jersey is distubing enough. Throw in an epic skullet, and dude’s sure to haunt your dreams for the remainder of the series.

What’s the over/under on the number of bodies buried in this man’s basement?

Morph Suits

Temperatures dipping into the sixties, with even chillier temps in the arena? Time to break out the anatomically unforgiving morph suits. We cropped this photo above the waists.

You’re welcome.

Gretzky Sweater

Wayne Gretzky played 31 games for the Blues, then rejected a 15 million dollar offer to stay with the team. Don’t tell this guy, though.

Playoff Beard

This modest gentleman would like you to know that he’s sporting a playoff beard. See it? His shirt makes it easy to find.

Fortunately, men this sexy don’t travel alone. No no. His Juliet wasn’t far behind.

Playoff Beard Gross

Um. Ew. Gross.
