Thanks to a lead, the boys down at the gif lab found the Creedence
Volume I was just the appetizer to this 20-course feast I've prepared for you. On our Thanksgifing table, we got a cornucopia of 2018 bite-sized goodies featuring former Cards, former MLB-ers, and current Birdos who we'd love to see return to former performance levels. I threw in a dash of mustard and salsa for a little kick.
It Takes a Village to Gif
Or specifically, a VEB Village. (A Ballpark Village, if you like.). And I am your Village Idiot.
I'm thankful for the current and former VEB writers whose thorough and creative articles always contained a nugget of something--a movie reference, a pun, a metaphor--that inspired a gif.
And thanks to the generous VEBer recs! Those have encouraged me to improve my gif-making and allowed me to find a niche through which I could contribute to our collective enjoyment of the Cards.
So, it's all your fault.
The Best of 2018
After an initial year of very basic gif'n, I realized it wasn't enough just to plop down a chunk of looped video. Empowered by not being told to stop, I experimented more, adding text and images to crank up the entertainment value.
This is the year y'all created the monster.
