About 13 years ago, I was listening to a local radio station, when the DJ asked listeners to call in with some of their favorite St. Louis Cardinal baseball memories. My phone call was answered and all of a sudden, I was talking on the radio! I mentioned being a fan since Stan Musial days....yes, I was a mere child back then!.....and how my (then 9 year old) son Mark, and I were the big baseball fans in our house, watching games on TV, etc. The next thing I knew I had won 2 tickets -- for Mark and me --to that night's Play Off game against the Atlanta Braves! They were great seats, too....about the 8th row back, right along the first base line.
Not only was I on the radio, but a local TV station's reporter and camerman showed up at the radio station when I went there to pick up the tickets.....THEN they went to Mark's grade school and did a little piece there! Mark said about 2 words....."yeah" and "yeah"!
In the past couple of weeks, I've had 2 male friends tell me they heard me on the radio again, because that same DJ was celebrating his 25 years on St. Louis FM radio, and played all his favorites bits.
The only unhappy, unfortunate, and heartbreaking thing about the entire day, afternoon and evening was the fact that the Cardinals LOST, with a score of something like 14 - O!!!
Well, you win some and you lose some.....
Thanks for the memories........again...JC!!
