Whilst meandering through the Mustard Museum in Middleton the other day, it occurred to me that two of the saddest things in life are a Cardinal off-day and an SBN gamethread containing less than one hundred comments. "Eureka!" I exclaimed, much to the surprise of the troupe of troubled teens traipsing through the colossal condiment collection. My exclamation was due to a single idea that would solve both of the problems mentioned above. What if VEB took over some other team's lightly-populated gamethread on a Cardinal off-day? Immediately, a voice, possibly D-Dee's, whispered in my inner-ear through the mustardy ether that Fish Stripes might be a perfect place to while away the long hours of a Cardinal off-day and simultaneously lend our unique VEB joie de vivre to the quiet Fish Stripe denizens. So what say you, VEB? We would need to register, pick a date, and then head on over. It MUST be understood going in that we will A) Not troll B) Truly root for the Marlins on this day C) Be generally & genuinely congenial The next two days that the Cards have an off-day while the Marlins play are: May 26th (Marlins @ Giants 3:45) & June 6th (Marlins vs. Brewers 7:10) I think I would vote for the 6th, since rooting for the Marlins against our divisional rival might make it a bit more genuine. Also, the Bandits are playing at Busch the night of the 26th, so it's not a normal off-day. If it goes well, we could adopt the Marlins on our off-days, if, of-course, the citizens of Fish Stripe are pleased with our efforts and intent. Let's discuss, and if it pleases the crowd, let us join Fish Stripes in preparation for the friendly invasion.
