Now I'm Sure Spring Is Here

Cards vs Reds 2015-04-18 1

I went to my office Saturday morning, as I do all too often. Total boredom. My camera was on the floor beside my desk and I was out of local material. Go out, Robert, find something, I thought. But the sky was gray and everything looked dull and I didn't have any energy and wah wah wah, the usual excuses. With some effort, I trudged down Broadway toward Busch Stadium searching for images.

The Cardinals had a day game. Nothing happening outside the stadium. Now what? Go to the game. Our weekend matches are more or less all sold out but you can usually get a single ticket so that's what I did. Baseball is often a social event with family or friends. It was nice to go by myself and just pay attention to events on the field. 

Above, a young vendor selling snacks near my seat. Below, red, white and the theme of the day. It's really spring when Matt Carpenter leads off and plays third base near a Budweiser sign.

It was a good day for St. Louis sports--wins by both the Cards and the Blues!

Baseball... and it all begins anew. And just for the record, I'm an anything but Bud guy.

It does look like everyone came in their red and white! Its's a sea of red and white.

Both the vendor and the crowd shots are amazing. Well done once again, Bob.

I have been a Red Sox fan since 1954. (Don't get me started about 1967 and the Cardinals . . . ) These days the most fun I would probably have at Fenway Park would be canvassing the crowd for interesting photo ops.
