Its a shame we have this conversation. All I will say: I never have and never will apologize for standing before the American flag with my hand over my heart; while singing or reciting the national anthem and pledge of allegiance.
Yadier Molina and STL Cardinal’s manager Mike Matheny had a bit of a difference of opinion recently. Molina was held out of a game…….in place of Carson Kelly; some say because Matheny said “Yadi looked tired”. Matheny said, “he never said tired”. Truth is you have to rest your catcher once in a while, and Kelly needs some playing time. Molina took exception, “I am not tired, I train to play 174 games” (which would include play-off and World Series games).
I was at last evenings Arizona D-Backs/Cardinal game. Yadi may not be tired, but he looks bored. The Cardinals got spanked, because of sloppy play and the offense could not score. This version of the “Cardinal Way” is boring, sloppy and don’t seem to grasp basic fundamentals of how to play the game.
There were fireworks following the game, which drew more applause from 50% of the fans that stayed to watch than there was in the game. Fireworks outside the confines of the stadium, not even a spark from the team inside! Team? They don’t look like a team, not a good one anyway. Time for some major changes!
Brothers and Sisters it is HOT! For the last few days we have had triple digit heat here in Missouri (St. Charles MO). I wanted to go fishing this morning before it got too hot…but couldn’t get up early enough as I stayed up to 2:00 am watching repeats of the Jason Bourne movies; one after the other in order!
Yesterday it got up to 104 degrees. It’s supposed to get up to 105 today, then cool down to 96 for a high tomorrow (Sunday). Maybe I hit the river early tomorrow while its only in the 80s until about 11:00 am The fish will be deep, trying to stay cool!
St. Charles (St. Louis) heat with high humidity. Been bringing in the Husky (Sky) and she is grateful!
Stay cool and have a great weekend. Gotta go do some research on whats biting on what bait/lures in this heat. Bass?
Friday night and Saturday afternoon went to the Cards/Mets game in St. Louis. We sat next to 3 Mets fans on Friday and there were about 200 Met fans in the right field section on Saturday. Good, clean fun! A little bit of back and forth rival bashing from both sides, but all in fun! Its not quite like it was when these two teams were in the same National League division, but it was a good reminder of the past.
We then went to Ball Park Village (directly across the street from the stadium) following the game for a couple of beers; Met fans were enjoying the Village with Cardinal fans there, probably for the first time.
The weekend series is tied at one game apiece. Today will be the rubber game! Go Cards!
