What. The. Heck.
So STL wecolmed The Flying Saucer, a new bar, to town last week. They've got 200 beers on tap, doors close to Busch Stadium and a cool little deal where you get a plate (sacuer) posted on the wall once you try all 200 beers.
You can only get 3 punches on your card at a time, so the soonest you can get a plate is 67 days.
Oh, and on the plate? You can write whatever you want.
That's where Joe Hoffmann comes in. He's a Royals fan living in STL. And his plans is (was) to make the first plate a memorial to Don Denkinger (see 1:27 of this video for a refresher if you forgot who Don was).
Fortunatly, we have a protagonist in this saga… Richard Haegele. This proud American and Cardinal fan has decided to match Joe, drink for drink and have the first plate be a tribute to Stan Musial.
