Last night the Cardinals lost. We are now down 3-1 in the series and it seems almost impossible that we will advance to the World Series. Especially since their pitcher tonight killed us in Game 1. Maybe they figured him out? I have no idea. We've been so hot and cold all season, I just wish we could be super hot right now, which we will need to be if we want to advance.
While, yes, we did lose, but I had a great time at the Cardinals bar.
*Lovely group of people.
*It's so nice/strange when my friend, Molly, introduces me to her St. Louis friends she says I'm from Ste. Gen. Which I am. But no one's ever heard of it. These people have!
Here's how I usually introduce myself:
I'm from Missouri. If they ask.
It's a small town called Ste. Genevieve sort-of close to St. Louis. blank stares
*one of the girls claims she is an inexperienced Cardinals fan. She is definitely a fan! She's just learning the ins and outs. After I corrected things she said a few times (maybe that was rude). She just hit me up with questions & by the end of the game we were besties.
*i love being able to sit around and talk baseball without making sure I don't dive in to deep, in order to avoid boring whomever I'm talking with. Typically I get on my baseball talk and slowly watch the eyes' of the person I'm talking with glaze over. Not in this crowd! They like the info and will throw some back at me.
*Such a good group of people.
One guy came in the room and asked why we can't turn on the Blackhawks game. Everyone booed. Then one guy in our group yelled, "There are a hundred bars with the blackhawks game on." True. That was the only one with the Cardinals game on all TVs and the speakers.
*They played a lot of Nelly ;)
*One of the girls dislikes the Giants so much. Honestly, I don't have anything against them. I dislike the Dodgers very, very much so there are some ulterior motives to beating them. With the giants, I just really want to beat them.
*They had Schlafly Pumpkin Ale!!!! One of the group bought a round and it was SO good! We all cheersed and cheered.
I'm hoping to hit up the Schlafly brewery tour Sunday after the marathon.
*My old co-worker friend is a big Giants fan and she usually shit talks the Cardinals during the game. Then after the game, when, yes, the Giants won. She sends the below and it made me feel better
You bet tonight I will be wearing all the Cardinals things possible and cheering for my team :)
