I’ll probably get hate mail for saying this in a town like ours, but I've never been a big baseball fan.
In St. Louis, that’s pretty much the equivalent of saying I hate America and apple pie.
Don’t get me wrong – I have respect for baseball and even greater respect for the St. Louis Cardinals. There are so many elements of the sport I’ve loved since childhood – the history and the tradition and the camaraderie. I love the energy as the fans pour into the stadium and the good-natured ribbing of the Cubs fans who enter our midst.
But the game itself, ehhhh.
