St. Louis' Opening Day in Photos 

Despite the rain, St. Louisans stuck it out for the first game of the 2008 St. Louis Cardinals season -- until the rain came heavier than hooves of Budweiser Clydesdales. Included: People dancing to "Cotton-Eyed Joe," Fredbird and people being interviewed about why they're all wet.
