Yesterday the St. Louis Cardinals sent out a press release announcing six additional theme nights for the 2014 season. There’s only one you really need to know, because it’s the best theme they could ever possibly have: Mo Tie Monday.
Yes, it’s a special night to honor always impeccably dressed general manager John Mozeliak. Mo Tie Monday is on May 12, when the Cardinals take on the Cubs at 7:10 p.m.
The details: “Each special Mo Tie Monday ticket comes with a limited-edition Cardinals bow tie. A portion of each ticket sold will benefit Cardinals Care. Fans may also purchase a VIP ticket which includes the game ticket, bowtie and a pre-game Q&A with Mozeliak, starting with a bow tie tutorial.”
How could you not purchase the VIP ticket when it includes a bow tie tutorial from Mo himself? Oh, and the chance for a Q&A too. Having had the opportunity to participate in Q&A’s with Mo at blogger days, I can tell you firsthand he’s entertaining and funny. Plus, this time you get a bow tie tutorial from him. We never had that during past blogger days.
Here’s a look at the limited-edition Cardinals bow tie.
That is just the best. Seriously. I’m just sorry that women wearing bow ties is not a thing.
Here’s the information from the Cardinals on the rest of the new theme nights.
Chuck Berry Night will celebrate rock-and-roll legend and St. Louis native Chuck Berry on Wednesday, May 21, when the Cards take on the Arizona Diamondbacks. All fans who purchase the special themed ticket will receive an exclusive Chuck Berry bobblehead. Fans can also purchase a VIP ticket which includes a pre-game meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, in addition to the bobblehead and game ticket.
On Tuesday, June 3, comic book characters and caped crusaders will roam the concourse of Busch Stadium while the Cardinals take on the Royals during the first Superhero Night at the ballpark. Fans of all ages that purchase the Theme Ticket will receive a one-of-a-kind Superhero Cardinals t-shirt. Youth size t-shirts also come with a Cardinals cape.
It’s Kids’ Day Out on Wednesday,June 18, when the Cardinals take on the Mets in a mid-week afternoon matchup. Local day camps and daycare providers are invited to bring kids to enjoy special pre-game activities. Each specially priced Kids’ Day Out ticket also comes with a free hot dog, soda and chips.
On Wednesday, July 23, all fans – naughty or nice – that purchase the Christmas in July Theme Ticket will receive an ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ t-shirt designed by STL Style. Fans will also be able to participate in other holiday-themed fun on that date, including a photo opportunity with Santa Fredbird.
Also returning for the 2014 season are three Peanut Controlled Days on Sunday, June 22, against the Phillies; Tuesday, July 22, versus the Rays; and Sunday, Aug. 3, against the Brewers. With the purchase of a Theme Ticket, fans with peanut allergies have the unique opportunity to sit to sit in a “Peanut Controlled Zone” where sales of peanuts will be halted and fans will not be allowed to consume peanut products in that area.
Christmas in July, Superhero Night and Mo Tie Monday are just some of the many unique personalized Theme Ticket promotions planned for the 2014 season. Fans can learn more about Cardinals Theme Tickets at cardinals.com/theme.

Tying a bow tie is not the problem; getting both sides equal and the knot looking good, that’s the problem.
No doubt that’s part of Mo’s tutorial.
Actually, a bow-tie on a woman can look pretty slick.
