Our long winter is finally coming to a close, gentle readers. Although the weather was quite tolerable, we as Cardinals fans have had little to celebrate this winter, unless you are bowled over by the hilarity of excessively large pants. However, all offseason gripes aside, the start of the season is a great reason to celebrate, as literally any baseball is better than no baseball at all. With that, the time to organize VEB Day 2016 is upon us. Would you like some details? Of course you would! (I blatantly plagiarized the details from last year's post):
DATE: 6/4, 6:15 pm vs the Giants (This happens to be the Yadi-Waino Final Out bobblehead game, if that is of any interest)
PLANS: Enjoy a game! A cold beer if that's your thing! Perhaps afterwards we'll go for a drink or hang out at some accommodating VEBer's house (I will even volunteer my home, which is relatively close to the stadium). Before the game, we will likely meet at a bar (4Hands is always a good suggestion, but feel free to make other suggestions in the comments) and stare awkwardly at one another.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO, AYVSI?: Well, I need to buy tickets. So I need you to tell me in the comments below or via email (which can be found in my profile) if you want tickets and how many you would like. You can either Paypal me for them (they'll likely be around $27), or if I deem you not especially shifty, I may allow you to pay me in person instead.
WHEN DO I NEED TO HAVE AN ANSWER FOR YOU, AYVSI?: I am going to purchase tickets on Saturday, April 2nd. You have just under a month to let me know. I will post periodic reminders during this time to get some of you (you know who you are) to RSVP. (I'll probably also move this post to the top at some point.) After that point, please feel free to join us, but you're on your own for tickets. This is the Yadi/Waino bobblehead game, so tickets are already in high demand.
Join us and the boys of summer for action!
