EP 18: The One with Andy Van Slyke (and The Cardinals Cowboy)
The response from last week’s show with Bernie Miklasz was tremendous. It was a bit of a serious slant to The JoeSportsFan Show as we spent nearly 20-minutes talking about the state of the industry, where its been and where its headed.
Seven days later, we come back with an interview with Cardinal Cowboy.
Admittedly, it’s a bit of a curve ball. But it’s part of our promise to bring some of St. Louis’ finest superfans out of the woodwork and into your eardrums. Just like we did with St. Louis Superman and Rasmus Girl. The Cardinal Cowboy is a staple of the Busch Stadium bleachers. He’s a grown man who wears a baseball jersey, baseball pants, a cowboy hat and is usually carrying around a fake World Series trophies. We had to hear about the method behind the madness.
