Just like Chicago Cubs fans, the Mizzou Antlers are a classy bunch. So classy, in fact, that these infamously mischievous student super-fans will happily photobomb a free throw taken by their own beloved Missouri Tigers. At one point in last night's match-up between Mizzou and South Carolina State,& ... More >>
Sometimes a journalist has gotta say the things no one else will say. So here goes nothing. There are probably three people in the greater metropolitan region who like me, have no interest getting wrapped up in the whirlwind of disappointment that is serious Cardinalmania.

The Chicago Cubs are currently rocking a 47-76 record on their way to another losing season. And because schadenfreude is one of the most powerful forces in the universe, that's something that warms the heart-cockles of untold Cardinals fans. That's a scientific fact that is indisputable, at least h ... More >>
It may be that at the end of the season we will look back on the series sweep just completed by the Cardinals as a singularly important moment. I say singularly, but that may not be the absolute most correct word. I think we could very well see this series as an extraordinarily important moment ... More >>
Yes, the rally squirrel was endearing. Yes, it was a tiny, furry beacon of hope that sustained us through three-quarters of playoff season. Yes, it raised money for charity. But does it have the power to break a twelve-game losing streak? Never mind that the Cardinals seldom find themselves in that ... More >>
A view from Chicago, ca. 2030: Based on current standings, with the Cubs dead last in the NL Central -- and the Cards in first -- this is going to be a really exciting summer. Also, there will be an explosion of urban plant growth during the next 18 years and Katniss Everdeen-style bows and arrow ... More >>
Marty Prather, 53 For the Cardinals' home opener series against the Cubs last weekend, "Sign Man," also known as Marty Prather, came prepared. Well, Prather always comes prepared -- the Springfield resident has upward of 40 hand-painted signs jammed in beside his seat along the first-base line -- b ... More >>
The rain has pushed back the start of the Cards' home opener to 3:45 p.m., so if you're one of the many office drones who was planning to watch via world wide interweb you've suddenly developed a glut of time. But fear not.
I was watching MLB Network the other day, watching the Angels and Diamondbacks play, I believe, and a commercial came on. You may have seen it, or you may not have. Or you may have seen it and thought you were just having some kind of horrible hallucination, perhaps caused by a stroke or somethin ... More >>
Do the Cardinals need one of these?Update October 31: It turns out they can! (It was proven in 2008 when the Rays lost to the Phillies that minor-leaguers do count as ex-Cubs.) Which means...if the Ex-Cubs curse has been broken, is the Curse of the Goat far behind? Dare we say -- Cubs in 2012 ... More >>

One day in May, a Chicago man boarded an El train (or maybe it was a bus) -- and disappeared. No one actually saw the abduction, but reports of the dastardly deed appeared all over the city's mass transit, along with hints that more information could be found on the website www.kidnappedchicagoan.co ...

It's Christmas in June! Finally, Draft Day is here, and I'm as giddy as a small child the day before Christmas, shaking all the packages and trying to figure out what might be in that really big one with my name on it.

The Cardinals are in Chicago today for a three-game series against the Cubs -- the first match up of the rivals this season. And say what you want about the north Chicago franchise, they do have a few talented fans. Like the guy in the video below...
angryasianman.comSo, according to Derrick Goold's retweet, the Cubs appear to be interested in signing Rick Ankiel just as soon as they can figure out how to unload Milton Bradley. You know who I feel bad for? Will Leitch. Seriously. This is going to kill him.

He was nice enough to speak with me on the phone this past week from his home. The good stuff, thank him. A ... More >>
You know, as a Cardinal fan, I'm always happy when bad things happen to the Cubs. I know, I know, I shouldn't feel that way, but I just can't help it. When black cats charge the field, I find myself laughing and cheering for the cat. When a Cubbie fan reaches out and plucks victory away from an outf ... More >>
