On Saturday morning we got up early in Milwaukee to drive about 370 miles to St. Louis, and our friends Scott and Shawn Whitman got up in Tulsa to drive (rent car) to meet us in St. Louie.
On the way to the stadium, we got a shot of the arch.
We also passed a wedding party, and I got a picture with the bride.
Well, stranger things have happened on our grandslamtrip.
Here, I am dealing with ticket sellers, scalper in the orange and wonderful couple (Kristi and Jason) with a couple of extra tickets .
On the way to our seats, we ran into four people that we sat next to in Charlie Gitto's.
This is Harry, SJ, me, Jana and Eric. They agreed to be on the blog.
They are an example of the very friendly people one might meet at Busch Stadium.
These were the seats with Kristi and Jason.
I called Jeannie to have her and Shawn come down to the open seats, but Jeannie said that they had sweet-talked an usher into letting them in seats near third base (and they liked their new seats way more than wherever Scott and I were sitting -- SLAM).
As to the game, the Cardinals scored 1 in the first, but Toronto scored 5 in the 3 including a 3 run homerun blast by J. Rivera. Each team scored 1 in the ninth and the Cards fans went home sad after watching their team lose 6-3.
There was some fun though during the 7th inning stretch.
We had a great time in St. Louis. Sunday morning the four of us drive to Kansas City for an afternoon game and to celebrate Jeannie's birthday.
