I Can Complain A Lot But The Cardinals

Posted on: January 15, 2009 6:32 pm
Yes I Admit I Do Complain A Lot. I Wine About The Owner Not Resigning Key Veterans Or Going Out & Getting Free Agents Who Can Have A Real Impact. I Do Complain About Trades They've Made, The Mulder/Haren One The Most. That One Is Hard Not To Think About. If We Never Would Of Made That 2004 World Series, Jockety & LaRussa Maybe Would Of Not Thought We Needed A Stupid Left-Hander. OK That's Not What I'm Talking About. The Cardinals Have The Greatest History. We've Won 10 World Series, All After 1926. 17 N.L. Pennants Since 1994 The Cardinal Have 7 Central Division Titles. We Have 19 MVP's ,Second Only To The Yankees ( 22 )  We Have 16 Hall Of Famers. Any Time I Get Down On The Cardinals I Think About The Glorious Past & 2006 World Series. 2006 Proves We Don't Always Have To Have The Best Team. Something Happens To Players When They Put On That Uniform. They Think They Can Add A Piece Of Theirs To Cardinal History. I Think The Cardinals Will Do Just Fine This Year. GO CARDINALS  !!!

I Can Complain A Lot But The Cardinals

My Dad's company, Purnell's Pride (now defunct), sponsored Cardinal Baseball games on the radio for some 25 years via W-TUP & W-ELO in Tupelo MS (See the resemblance--TUP & ELO?)  BIrthplace of Elvis.  Undoubtedly have the BEST and MOST Knowledgable fans in ALL of Baseball (2nd behind Yankees at the worst) but should NOT be taken for GRANTED by St Louis Ownership. 

I LOVE our glorious past and history but personally only able to experience 1982 and 2006 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS.  But, I shouldn't complain b/c....hmmm, when was the LAST time the poor, pitiful, woeful Li'l Cubbies WON or, for that matter, PLAYED in a World Series???  100 + years! 

Sure do Hate it.  Here's hoping it's ANOTHER 100 years + MORE until those bumbling bunch of nobodies from the North Side even make it back to the Playoffs.

Amen to you Cardinal brother.We are the yankees of the National League.We have every right to complain about our boys.they play for us(the fans).and for the most part they all do play hard for us.At the time of the trade,the Haren for Mulder trade looked fairly good for both not so much.Being a Cards fan is a way of life for us.people here in Denver laugh at me because my Christmas tree has nothing but red and white ornaments and lights!Let 'em laugh i say.I've been to alot of cities,met alot of teams fans,there are no fans as passionet as we are.there are alot of good fans for alot of good teams out there,but none as good,and as intelligent as we are.

I'm a cardinal fan to & I get very frustrated with the cardinals not making moves & cheaping out on players. I to young to remember any of their championship before this last one. It is cool the Cardinals have so much Great History. I love hearing about the previous players & years. I guess we are luckier than most Teams.
