Although I was born and grew up in Pennsylvania, most of my father's side of the family (going back over a century) is from in and around the St. Louis/eastern Missouri area. As a result, I've been there a few times.
When I was about eight years old, we visited distant relatives who worked for Anheuser-Busch, who gave my brother and me stickers and plush toys (!!!) for a mascot from a new ad campaign that Bud Light would be launching that fall. Spuds McKenzie, of course. Looking back more than 25 years, it's kind of amazing how brazenly child-oriented that ad campaign was.
Why am I discussing this? Because good or bad, Kyle Kendrick makes me want to drink a lot of beer. And against Jaime Garcia, it's prime 30 pack season.
Discuss the game below.
