hen you’re ta
That’s a great story. Thanks for sharing. The Cardinals are a hell of a team historically. And while Boston’s had their number this century, the Redbirds got their licks in last century (though you’re too young to have enjoyed those).
I guess when i say I'm life long fans of teams i mean it. I think i picked my 2 favorite teams between 82-83 when i was 3-4 and stuck with it, The wizard of Oz and then Dan the man. Was crazy how many games i actually got to see younger as a kid before studios bought the rights to everything. For some wild *** reason i guess WGN (i believe thats what it was) a chicago station was aired in the Charlotte area, so got to see all the Cubby - Card games, and then TBS aired all the Braves games so got to see quite a few games. I did actually like watching the Braves some (didnt have much of a choice, stayed with grandma after school til dad got off work, and she was a huge fan) but was exciting to watch their pitching.
I went to a game late 80s and got Phil Neikro and John Smoltz's autograph on a ball. I tossed the ball to Jose Oquendo (the cards 2nd baseman) to sign and he smudged out both their names. thanks *******, I'm a kid.
But pretty much playoffs this year, even if i wasnt pulling for dad's BoSox at this point, I'd be pulling for whoever the hell was playing the Astros. I would prob even pull for the friggin Yankees i dislike the Stros so much.
Ideally Braves vs Sox with BoSox winning.
