Ah, summer - the best season of the year (no, I will NOT listen to any quibbling; this is a fact). Although the weather has been quite tolerable, we as Cardinals fans have not had quite as much to celebrate this season as in previous years. However, all seasonal gripes aside, baseball 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 2017 is upon us. Would you like some details? Of course you would! (I blatantly plagiarized the details from last year's post):
DATE: 8/12, 6:15 pm vs the Braves (This happens to be the Replica 1987 National League Championship Ring 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 again, 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 $25), 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 Friday, July 14th. 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.
Join us and the boys of summer for action!
