Ok, so I try to not put much of my sports stuffs on here, since I have a different platform for such things, but this past weekend was just beyond amazing that I can’t not tell you about it.
The Cardinals site in the same network I have my Blues site with was given press creds for the Cardinals Winter Warm-Up over the weekend. Out of the three writers for the site, two live in the Quad Cities, the other lives in Arkansas. So I got to go.
I might have squealed when I found out.
It was a lot of work but was quite legitimately one of the coolest experiences I’ve had, so I feel the need to share. Well, that and linking all my posts here will give me a simple way to get back to them.
Before I get to that, I had to share my favorite Twitter conversation from today. The crush Kevin mentions is mildly detailed here.
Anyway, here’s a list of all my posts for the weekend. I loved getting to meet players and feel like a legitimate reporter. Pretty fucking spectacular weekend.
Chris Carpenter and Rafael Furcal
Lance Lynn, Matt Carpenter, Tyler Greene
Matt Adams, Brandon Dickson, JC Romero
Jason Motte and Shelby Miller
Jon Jay and Daniel Descalso
Mitchell Boggs and Jaime Garcia
Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman
Allen Craig and Kyle McClellan
Kyle Lohse and Carlos Beltran
David Freese and Skip Schumaker
The Cool Down post
I’m still walking on air after this. I love that I had the opportunity to do this and be around my favorite team. So awesome. So, so awesome.
