Send In The Clown

Fredbird On The Bridge 1

It happens a lot around St. Louis. Fredbird, the baseball Cardinals' irrepressible, relentlessly idiotic mascot, was in attendance at the bridge opening. Fredbird. Red bird. Cardinals. Get it? Har har.

Fredbird is famous for clamping his (its?) beak down on people's heads. All in good fun. In the second photo, he seems to be about to try it on some politicians. From left to right: Sen. Claire McCaskill (yay), Rep. Lacey Clay (yay) and, most immediately, Rep. Ann Wagner (not yay). Might it do some good?

Tomorrow: you can see the Arch from the bridge. Mostly.

je suis toujours surpris par l'engouement que porte les supporteurs américains envers leurs mascottes

I like him! We have to 'entertained' by Wally the Green Monster. Now he's stupid!

Representative Clay seems to have a genuine smile.

Unlike Rep. Wagner.

Could we have her if we send you Rob Ford?
