It usually is not a good idea to board a bus with no idea of where it is headed. This is just what the Cardinals were asked to do by their manager, Mike Matheny. The trip was apparently part of a "team-building" exercise. The whole thing was weirdly vague. Derrick Goold, beat writer for the team for the St. Louis Post Dispatch, chronicled the strange story via Twitter:
The #cardinals have been told to board a bus. They have not been told where they are going. No schedule posted.— Derrick Goold (@dgoold) February 23, 2017
Group bused away this morning for team-building exercise will return to workout this afternoon. Other half of #Cardinals roster then goes.— Derrick Goold (@dgoold) February 23, 2017
Quite strange, indeed. So where did they go? I have some theories:
- They went to Disney World (duh)
- They embarked in a charitable endeavor (like visiting a hospital)
- They were taken to the
super-secret underground cavern where they were covered in the Cardinals Devil Magic Dust™Wizarding World of Harry Potter™
I need answers!
