Madeleine Monday (Baby It's Cold Outside)


The area of the baseball stadium we were in Saturday has an indoor food area and lounge called the Redbird Club. Anyone can be a member of this club who is willing to pay something extra for a ticket. (Groucho Marx: I don't care to belong to any club that will have me as a member.) Anyway, given the low temperatures, I'm glad we ponied up. In fact, we hid out there for much of the game, watching the action on TV screens.

Major League baseball frequently has giveaways for people attending a game. All the tchotchkes have corporate sponsors. This one had bobble heads (insanely popular here) of former Cardinal greats riding in little Ford convertibles. You got one at random on entry. Ellie was quite satisfied with Lou Brock and his clone and had to share her thoughts with her mother.

This kind of club makes a lot of sense for baseball fans who dislike cold weather. Bobble heads? I will never understand the human mind. But I can see why little kids would like them. Does major league baseball pretend to be non-profit as does the NFL in order to avoid paying taxes.

Cute photos! I have a sister who lives in Springfield and she sent photos of snow on the ground. What crazy weather!

Maddie and Lou Brock? Heavenly. (Maybe except for the cold . . . )
