St. Louis Cardinals

I had a good time at the RHA table at Fall Fest. It was a cold night, but it was fun to see everyone celebrating the fall. RHA had a table for decorating cookies. It was a good turn out at the table. It was nice that the cards game was on. I remember last year it was inside, but beng outside was a nice change. There was some pumpkin tables, bowling, a costume table and a few others. There also was two fire pits going so we can all warm up.

Go Cardinals!

I have always been a Cardinals fan. I love going to their games and the atmosphere at the stadium. It has been really awesome living in St. Louis and going to Cardinals games. The whole city loves the Cards. Everybody is cheering for them. The atmosphere in the whole city is really cool to experience. I don’t want baseball season to end! Let’s get 12 in 13!

Now, from my title you are probably thinking “It’s the middle of October, why is this girl posting about Christmas already?!” And since you probably don’t know me, that is a very honest question. But for those who know me know that Red October is my favorite time of year. A fall baseball game is amazing! Especially a post season baseball game being played by our St. Louis Cardinals! I live for those nail-biting games where the Cards wait till the very last minute to pull through for us! They’re so exciting! I was fortunate enough to get to go the game 5 of the National League Division series and see the Cardinals beat the Pirates and advance to the National League Championship! So far they are ahead of the Dodgers by 2 games, but boy can I not wait until Monday night’s game! I love watching these games with my roommates because we all get so exciting and yell at the TV together- it really is great bonding! I just hope we can advance to the World Series and I will be a very happy camper! It’s also fun because they play most of these games on a big screen in the DSAC and being there watching them with so many other Fontbonne students is so much fun because it’s a really great environment and there are so many huge fans on campus! One of my teachers last Monday had the pitch-by-pitch website up so we could be as close to watching the game as possible during class, and it was definitely a fun class! Seeing campus as a sea of red during this time of year is great, and the games are a good way to be connected to others on campus!

When someone hears the words “St. Louis”, there are many things that come to mind. There’s the decadent gooey butter cake, Ted Drewes, toasted raviolis, heck, even the Arch. But to most people,(especially those who live in StL), one thing tends to consistently pop into mind. That being, baseball. Ahh, yes, the Cardinals. And with me being born, raised, and still living in St. Louis, it’s only natural for me to be a diehard fan.

With the NLDS just around the corner, St. Louis is all abuzz. However, it’s not just the fact that most everyone in St. Louis loves baseball, it’s the sense of community that comes with it. I pulled into a gas station not long ago, and heard one gentleman playing the Cardinals game quite loudly in his car. The man pumping gas next to him asked, “Are the Cards winning?!” and the man replied with a “yep!” This kind of thing makes me happy inside. We may all be different people, but we share a passion that is spread throughout the country. Despite our differences, the community we form through baseball brings us together in many ways, and with another playoff appearance by the Cardinals, that sense of unity in St. Louis will definitely become stronger than ever.

Now, with the Cards in postseason play, one of the customers at my work stated, “It sure is a great time to be a Cardinals fan!”

It sure is! But then again, when is it not?

Good luck with the playoffs, Cards! We all believe in you!!

New Perspective

by Alumni Posts September 30, 2013

I cannot just pin point one Fontbonne experience that is the best. I have got to experience so much since I have been in St. Louis. I come from small town in Illinois. I would say it is a sheltered community. Coming to Fontbonne has really opened up my eyes. I have a new perspective […]
