Baseball begins on Thursday and the Cardinals season starts Friday. Yes, you will see your favorite sport on TV once again, but more importantly...
CHEAP DRINKS ARE COMING BACK.
There are few things stronger than my love of the On the Run promotion of $0.50 any-size drink the day after the Cardinals score six runs or more. This has been a very strong part of my brand for many years. You of course, know all about this from the ridiculous things that I have written like this.
I am not alone, though. There are others like me, others that above almost all else, prize the cheap drink promotion. Together we will stand with pride. Join me and Greg Warren’s dad, an avid Cardinals fan and fellow cheap drink enthusiast:

And maybe in the day we have left before baseball resumes, check out the Warren’s special. I think I have to give it a watch now!

Pittsburgh’s beautiful PNC Park looks increasingly likely to be the Jays’ home park in 2020. MLB could possibly massage the schedule to alleviate the few home days in conflict. @JMackeyPG noted only 7 home dates for Pirates and Jays conflict.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) July 21, 2020
