The Rules: Cardinals v. Brewers Edition

Much has changed since the Runnin’ Redbirds met Harvey’s Wallbangers, but make no mistake: this rivalry is taken VERY seriously.  And there are some rules.

Number One:

Somebody’s gonna get thrown at.  The Brewers are gonna miss location up and in, the ball is gonna sail over someone’s head.  The Cards are gonna get pissed and a Brewer’s gonna get drilled in the back.  All part of the game.  Bring yer tough suits.

Number Two:

Tony’s going to get angry.  Whether it’s because someone plunks his horse or because Skip slides safely into home but is called out by the ump, TLR will go off.  After he puts down the animals.

Number Three:

One can never tire of “Prince Fielder is fat” jokes.  Because he is.  And it’s funny.

That’s what makes this series special.

Hate me.  It’s all good.  Just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Was it the Brewers that threw up and in to Albert in that pic? Scary! I didn’t realize the two teams had such an intense rivalry. I thought it was the Cards and Cubs that hated each other. Shows what I know about the NL.

  2. Red State Blue State

    Jane, yep, that was the Brewers’ Saito who hit AP in that pic. The rivalry has picked up in the last few years while the Cubs have been awful and the Brewers have been pretty good. (Kind like Yanks/Rays the last couple years). Apparently the Brewers are better than us though. Ugh.

  3. This is a very simple game...

    I know about La Russa’s animal activist charities but he looks so intense in that photo, I swear he’s about to go all Lenny on the puppy and the kitten.
    As for the Fielder photo…my husband is into RSBS now and he took one look at it and deadpanned “Wow, I didn’t know Prince Fielder made [term for a specific flavour of adult film that starts with a B and can’t be printed on MLBlogs redacted] films in the offseason.” And now I can’t look at it without cracking up, LOL.
