It's our brand-spankin' new stadium, and we couldn't be more excited. Home of the National League's finest, the St. Louis Cardinals, Busch Stadium is ground zero for Redbirds fans. Tours are available (call for details), and while the building is too new to have much history, it's just a matter of time.
English Premier League clubs Chelsea (never met a trophy they didn't try to buy) and Manchester City (also-rans for years until they married a bill...
The St. Louis Cardinals finish the current homestand with a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds. The last time the teams met the Reds pounded the Cards 13 to 4, the Cards won the next game 5 to 1, and then the Cards pounded the Reds 10... More »
Gut Check loves us a day at the ballpark. And Gut Check loves us some ballpark food. Nachos? Bratwurst? Soft pretzels? Pretty much anything shellacked with orange cheese product? Yes, please. We ain't... More »
It's unfamiliar territory for the St. Louis Cardinals this year. For the first time since 1941, the Birds will start a campaign without Stan Musial present in some capacity. And yet, baseball will be played, and Musial will never be far from the... More »
There are few things more satisfying than a bike ride through city streets late on a gorgeous summer evening -- and the later, the better. Unfortunately, nighttime urban cycling isn't particularly safe, with decreased visibility and a greater... More »
It may seem like a cheat to award Best Hot Dog to a vendor at Busch Stadium, a veritable clearinghouse of cased meats. But understand that the St. Louis BBQ Bacon Dog is no ordinary frankfurter: It is nothing short of a perfect marriage between culinary fusion and American gustatory excess. As can be gleaned from its name, the BBQ Bacon Dog begins as a hot dog wrapped in bacon, cooked until the bacon yields with a satisfying crunch. But that's only the start. One side of the bun is lined... More »
Face it. The "Best Fans in Baseball" trope aside, Busch Stadium is not reserved for real baseball fans. True adherents of the national pastime can be found at home following the game on TV, radio or the Internets. Why's that? Because there are just too damn many distractions at Busch -- from that annoying "Cha Cha Slide" song (you know: "Everybody clap your hands") to the cap dance, the Kiss Cam and Fredbird's T-shirt launches. Most distracting of all are the people. How are you... More »
Ah, the new Busch Stadium. A worthy palace for baseball's best fans? A pleasant, if unoriginal, variation on the theme of new "old" ballpark? Over dinner not long ago, a St. Louis expat put it in perspective: "I just couldn't get over the view," he exclaimed. "St. Louis actually has a downtown. I mean, that's my city right there." The view beyond the center-field fence is a singular take on the familiar skyline: The Arch sits slightly off-center, prominent but not overwhelming, while the Old... More »
Forty seasons after its opening, the stadium that was home to Gibby, the Wizard and Prince Albert is perched over history's dustbin. The unique ballpark is revered by baseball fans and architects alike. Redbirds fans love it because, well, it's chock-full of memories. Archophiles adore it for its use of formed concrete and steel, its subtle interplay with the Gateway Arch and its first-class lineage as one of Edward Durrell Stone's modernist masterpieces. Yes, despite its rusting rafters,... More »
Love it while you can, because the Cardinals say it sucks and want it torn down. Given an odd alliance that included Republican mayoral candidate Michael Chance and most liberal of Democrats, Jeanette Mott Oxford, couldn't scrape together enough signatures to put a stadium-replacement proposal up for a public vote this fall, the old ballyard's days do seem numbered. Before it's gone, buy a $10 bleacher ticket and go. Doesn't matter what team is in town. Doesn't matter that you're sitting... More »
I always enjoy playing in St. Louis because it's a great town. The fans are knowledgeable and appreciative of good performances. They seem to cheer on both sides of the ball which makes it fun as opposed to going somewhere like Philly or New York where you get cussed at.
