    hope I can get to a game sometime this summer.  My sister and BIL make it into St. Louis for a game a couple of times a year, so maybe I can tag along.  We are in Columbia, about 125 miles west of StL, so going to a game is never a spur of the moment thing.

      In 2007, I drove down from Chicago to attend the funeral of my only 1st cousin on my mother's side of the family in Washington, MO. I drove directly from the funeral to the new ballpark where, still dressed in a black suit, I attended a game against the Astros.  That was the first time, but I have enjoyed games there once or twice a season since. A game at Busch Stadium is not to be missed.  

      Aren't you glad that the clueless won't get a chance to run the country again, just yet? Yeah. Me too.

        members who go to the games drive from Columbia, park, and take light rail to the ball park.  Heck, I'd go just to get to ride the train!  Re the Astros.  I became a supporter (not a real Cardinal-like fan) in the early 1980s.  I loved the Astrodome: it was a wonderful place for football and baseball, easy to get around in (unlike the Super Dome, which is a whole other story), comfortable.  It is such a shame that it has been totally abandoned and deteriorated beyond repair.  I understand they will soon tear it down.

        it cost a lot of taxpayer dollars, and the older one was already pretty nice.
