NLCS GM 1 : Y’all Just Got Straight Bumgarner’d

Might be worth giving Adam Wainwright a pregnancy test… dude has been laboring in these playoffs. Sorry. And yes, I get that it doesn’t actually make sense. A disaster joke for a disaster start for the Cardinals in Game 1 of the National League Championship series. There’s no way around it. Nothing positive to glean. […]


5 Super Bold Predictions: SF vs STL NLCS

The Cardinals and Giants (finally) begin the NLCS tonight in St. Louis. Before GM 1 of the NLDS, we made 5 super-bold predictions for the NLDS and ended up nailing 2 of five (Kershaw did get rocked, the FS1 broadcast of GM 1 was the highest rated in the network’s history), missing on 2 (Bourjos did […]


A Very Analytical Breakdown Of The NLCS

The Best Cardinals Bars Outside Of St. Louis

Diaspora. The dispersion of any people from their original homeland.  It’s in our name and many of the people that have come and gone from working on this site over the years were big Cardinals fans, but didn’t live in St. Louis. So with that in mind, we wanted to put together a little list […]

The Friday Links

The Friday Links

The Blues picked up the 2014-15 season where they left off 2013-14. They’re already 2 points behind the Blackhawks and 0-1 at home. Worse, they looked flat in pretty much every aspect of the game. Perhaps when they were asked to emulate their cross-town brethren, they accidentally popped in the Rams game-tape instead of this? The […]

The Cardinals Drama Is Worthy Of An Andy Cohen After Show

It’s only been a week? 6 days ago we were right here. Chomping at the bit for the Adam Wainwright/Clayton Kershaw oober match-up wondering if we’d be able to sleep through the night; plotting early exit strategies for work on Friday. Somehow, some way, the following three things happened: 1) This became funny: 2) The […]


Tavern On Little Fort Is the New & Best Cardinals Bar In Chicago

It’s over. For years it’s been known as ‘The Cardinals Bar’ in Chicago. But the run is done… the king has been dethroned. It’s curtains for Sedgwick’s. ‘The Sedge’ had a good run. RIP. There is a new, best Cardinals bar in Chicago and it’s called Tavern on Little Fort. (LINK HERE) They join Stoney’s […]


NLDS GM 4: The Apple Of Emotional Investments

Charles Barkley had Michael Jordan. Jim Kelly had Troy Aikman. Ted Williams had… Babe Ruth’s curse? —– One of the most tired tropes of sports talk is the list of ‘best who’ve never won the big one’. Just ask any of the men above. But as long as we’re going to have this distinguished group […]


NLDS GM 3: The Bulldog You Didn’t Know You Wanted

July 31st. The Cardinals were stagnant. The juggernaut that St. Louis expected to see had failed to launch. And in its place was a shell of the NL Championship team that looked poised for a sustained run 10 months prior. Injuries (Wacha, Garcia), dead arms (Wainwright) and inconsistency (Miller) were starting to take a toll […]


An NLDS Game Via Tweets

Lazy? You bet. But why not take someone else’s hard work and re-purpose it here? Tweets during post-season games come fast and furious. So this is more like a public service than anything. This. Will. Never. Happen. Dodgers fans hate Matt Carpenter. Still breaks our heart just a little. He misses Matty Holliday so bad. […]
