Snow day reading

Being snowbound today with 17 inches of snow on my unplowed street has given me the opportunity to catch up on some reading, as well as explore the other sites on G9 Sports. Great variety and great content — please take a look around!

Also on my reading agenda was catching up with the latest Cardinals news.

  • Derrick Goold debunks the snow/blizzard = Cards World Series championship prediction that was making the Twitter rounds the other day. Well, okay. That doesn’t mean they can’t still be World Series champs. The best part of the article, though, is that this picture accompanies it. Any day — even a snow day — is a good time to bash the Cubs, right?
  • Goold also made me start to fall in love with Lance Berkman even more with this. I’ve not yet reached Chris Carpenter level in my admiration of Lance (sorry, don’t like the Big Puma nickname, and of course won’t call him Fat Elvis) but I am surprising myself at how much I like him already.
  • Finally, here’s an awesome story about Trever Miller and his marathon running. It never fails that I get teary-eyed when reading about Trever and his daughter.

And the snow plow finally went down the street! Of course, my gym and even the malls are closed today so I’m staying in anyway. But it’s nice to know I could leave now if I wanted to. Only 11 days until pitchers and catchers report!

  2. This is the picture that must accompany every Cardinals snow day picture on the internet.

    I believe it’s federal law now.

    I wonder if this guy ever realized just how popular his pedal powered inscription would be?

    • The picture is an absolute classic! I agree with Michael — it should be a federal law to use this picture when talking about snow days.
