I am starting to believe that some people (fans) have lost their minds. I am listening to talk radio and people are calling and saying that this season is basically over for the Cardinals. As I write this Tuesday, we are seven games into the season and the Cards are 3-4. Sarcastically speaking, I am not sure we have enough games left in the season to come back from this huge deficit.

As I planned to head out to Circle 7 Ranch, I wondered, “Would boots and a cowboy hat be appropriate?” I’m always looking for an excuse to wear boots and a cowboy hat, but I reminded myself I wasn’t heading to a country concert or Texas for that matter. I was heading to dinner in Ballwin. The boots and cowboy hat would have to wait for another time.

The first day of spring came and went a few weeks ago. And the earth didn’t get the message. Low temps and crazy snowfalls were the norm rather than warm sun and green sprouts. But luckily there were other signs that bespoke the season.
If you are over the age of 40, I think you will understand exactly what I am talking about here. You can be told and reminded to do something and within the snap of your fingers you can forget about it and do something else.
What a weekend as we were pounded with a record March snowfall on the first weekend of spring. I am lucky that I can even lift my arms and fingers to write this column as the snow was falling so fast that I had to shovel my driveway four times. Luckily, I have a small driveway but it was great fun as it was a bonding experience with my kids as they all pitched in to help out, as we helped all of our neighbors out also. The point beings, that even in something that is not a sport, I think there are lessons of sportsmanship and friendship that can be taught. Myself and my kids, along with others coming together to help out neighbors is a great feeling, much like players coming together on a team to accomplish a goal.
There were so many things that I could write about this week in the world of sports in St. Louis including the losses of Stephen Jackson and Danny Amendola, which are huge to the Rams franchise, along with Mizzou and Saint Louis University Basketball in the tournaments, to Cards baseball and their potential pitching problems as they enter the season.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
