My husband (who reads the blog so he doesn’t get in trouble for being unsupportive – Hi!) is a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan. He grew up going to the games at the old Busch Stadium and introduced me to the FUN of baseball. I grew up… NOT a fan of baseball. I thought it was slow, boring, hot, and just a filler on TV.
But then – he introduced me to the game – and the St. Louis Cardinals.
The StL fans are amazing – they legit love the game of baseball and will cheer for a great play – no matter the team the made it. They’re actually FANS – fair and foul-weather. They talk about the strategy of the game, the history of the ballpark, and they know the standings, history, and rivalries. But they’re NICE about it all. Plus – Busch Stadium has REALLY good hot dogs. Deal-breaker for baseball, people. DEAL. BREAKER.
Perfect! And when you’re sweltering in the Midwest heat (or enjoying the game from your air-conditioned living room), Jams won’t wilt, run like sweaty mascara tracks, fall flat. Because they’re Jams, and they’re awesome.
Not a Cardinals Fan? Cubbies, BoSox, Nationals Fans – don’t fret!
We live in the Chicago area now, where “Cardinals” is kind of a dirty word. So if you’re here from Chi-town, Boston, or D.C., just pretend this red-white-and-blue fabulousness is cheering on your own Boys of Summer.
