We are attending the game tonight (Friday, 7:10 pm) against the Cubs, and will be tailgating prior. You're invited to come by.
UPDATE - Cardinals won the game. Highlights:
- Babe-esque, I pointed to the Dobbs sign in left field when Albert Pujols came up to bat and said, "he will hit a homer just above the sign on the next pitch." He hit it about 5 feet to the right of that sign. I credit my incredible baseball knowledge. Other people, not surprisingly, credited my amazing ability to bullshit my way through life.
- Emily and I engaged in a contest, where one person says the name of someone famous, then the other person has to say another famous name, whose first name starts with the first letter of the last name of the previous person. For instance, if I said "Bill Cosby," she'd might say "Cybill Shepard." Then I'd say "Sam Adams," and she'd say "... A... uh, A... um, I give up." Yes, I totally RULED in that game, although it did go a little longer than this illustration... but she had to enlist the help of the guy next to us to keep up.
- We decided we're going to the other two games this weekend, if we can get tickets. With the help of stubhub.com, that seems quite possible. And yet, so not-cheap.
