Mardi Gras in St. Louis is a pretty big deal. Appropriately a powerful and mighty leader has been appointed to oversee the festivities. That’s right, Mardi Gras St. Louis has named its king: Harrison Bader:
I was wondering what Harrison Bader was doing in St. Louis in January and here, evidently, is the answer: he is the King of Mardi Gras. That’s going to be quite a float. (And if he’s going to be available for the parade on Feb. 26, spring training is starting late.) pic.twitter.com/EsSqtJvq0Y— Jeff Jones (@jmjones) January 11, 2022
Of course, the implication here mentioned by Jeff is that for Harrison to be available for a February 26 parade, he is likely under the assumption that Spring Training will be postponed. You probably already assumed that, but here is some further indirect confirmation from a player.
Baseball’s loss is our gain though. Long live the King! ¡Viva el rey!
