The Cardinals are St. Louis' pride and joy and last night they ended their three-game losing streak with a 4-2 win over the Pittsburg Pirates! Ahoy!
I've always wanted to go to a baseball game in the US, mainly to perve on the boys and drink beer and eat hot dogs, which is exactly what we did.
Having bargained with the scalpers we actually ended up in the bleachers, some of the best seats at the game, for 10 bucks a pop. Not bad when you consider some people are paying a couple of hundred for theirs!!
After the star player, Pujols (yes Pujols), hit a home run and the fireworks went off over the crowd and I saw the excitement on everyones faces I knew this was the game for me.
Not because that much actually happens but because, when it does, they let off fireworks.
And everyone loves a good bang!
