“O Piece of Bunting, flying high and higher That next October it shall flutter here: This is the end of every fan’s desire.”*
Spring is just around the corner. I know this because we see a lot of these guys–the GM, owner and manager of the STL Cardinals–on the local news these days.
Which is okay with me. I much prefer Redbirds to political commentary. And I should mention that our baseball team owners are like gods compared to our former football team owner. I mean really.
Ah, Fans, let not the Quarry but the ChaseBe that to which most fondly we aspire!For us not Stake, but Game; not Goal, but Race—THIS is the end of every fan’s desire.
