BIRTHDAYS and BRO’STACHES: BORN ON OPENING-DAY!?!?!

YOU BETCHA, BUSTERS!!!

Since Y’all Continue Telling Me To Do More…

…Personal’ish…

…Bloggin’ings…

…I Decided To Simply…

Begin

At

The Beginning.

Only Seems Right.

Right?!?!?

RIGHT!!!!!

As The Title Suggests…

(or really just flat out says)

I Was Born

OPENING-DAY

1980.

The St. Louis Cardinals

…Were…

…AT HOME…

Busch Stadium II: St. Louis, MO!!!


…Taking On…

The Pittsburgh Pirates

The Starting Pitchers…

…Were…

PETE VUCKOVICK

Pete Vuckovich -SP- -STL- (1980)

…For…

THE CARDINALS

…And…

BERT BLYLEVEN

Bert Blyleven -SP- -PIT- (1980)

…For…

THE PIRATES

Honestly…

…It Was A Rather…

…QUIET Game.

All The Scoring Was Done In The 2ND-INNING!

And…

…In The End…

THE CARDS WON!!!

VUCKOVICH Would Toss A MASTERFUL…

…COMPLETE GAME SHUT-OUT…

…Walking 2-Batters…

…Hitting 1…

…Giving Up 3-Singles…

…And STRIKING-OUT 9-BUCS!!!

THE CARDINALS Themselves Only Manged 3-Hits.

Lucky For ME

…Er…

THEM

…They Had…

GEORGE HENDRICK!!!

George Hendrick -OF- -STL- (1980)

His Double In The 2ND-Inning…

…Scored…

BOBBY BONDS!!!

Bobby Bonds -OF- -STL- (1980)

That Was…

…ALL VUCKOVICH NEEDED!!!

Another Cardinals Favorite…

KENNY REITZ

Ken Reitz -3B- -STL- (1980)

…Had St. Louis’ OTHER 2-Hits…

…Both Singles.

After WINNING ON MY BIRTHDAY

(aka OPENING-DAY)

…The Cards Would LOSE The Next 3-Games To The Pirates.

HOWEVER…

…They STILL WON FOR MY BIRTH-BIRTHDAY!

Was It “FATE”???

Hmm…

…I Dunno…

…Since I Don’t Really Believe In That Sort Of “Hogwash”…

…As Some Of My Elder Family AND Friends Might Have Said.

BUT BUT BUT…

…I Can STILL Be SUPER-STOKED About It.

I Mean…

…COME ON…

…Ya KNOW?!?!

How Many People Get To Say That?!?!

I Was…

…BORN ON OPENING-DAY…

…And…

…MY TEAM WON!!!

If That’s What “FATE” Is…

…Then I Suppose It’s Acceptable…

…In THIS Instance.
