Moments ago, an e-mail came through to the Cards Diaspora inbox with the subject: “An Evening With Bob Gibson”.
Gibby? One of the all time greats? We’d like to have an evening with Bob Gibson.
Turns out it wasn’t some super-awesome thank you from the Cardinals for our years of hard blogging. But instead an opportunity to spend a few hundred dollars at Busch Stadium when baseball is dark for the All-Star Game break.
So it looks like the Cardinals are now using the all-time greats of the franchise to try and squeeze out some extra mid-season revenue.
Let’s just hope Dan gets his fair share…. 3 hours of Q&A over 2 nights? At a cocktail party? Maybe that part wasn’t thought all the way through.
