My favorite St. Louis only holiday is finally here; it’s Opening Day at Busch Stadium!
I’ve been watching the weather reports like crazy over the past few days, as I was determined not to have a repeat of last year’s Opening Day. I love the Cardinals, but I’m not standing outside in a brutal thunderstorm for hours to celebrate. Luckily, the weather was gorgeous for the Cardinals Home Opener. And so were the ladies I was tailgating with all day!
My sister set up a tent in a parking lot down the street from Busch Stadium, and her rowdy friends were on hand to join in the party.
No wheelbarrows on traffic cones were safe from our celebration! After several hours of tailgating, the gang eventually made our way down to Paddy O’s to watch the Cardinals lose in spectacular fashion. The bullpen giving up nine runs in the ninth inning was pretty terrible.
But even that terrible ending wasn’t enough to dampen our spirits. Win or lose, Opening Day is still worth celebrating. 2013 looks to be another fun year for all my Cardinals fans. 12 in 13!
