    Merged: Sick and tired of the Cardinals / Whiny Cardinals

    Would the real damn Reds show up???????????

    The Reds do not have the attitude I'd like to see facing these cardinals.

    How long are they going to put up with this garbage?

    Oh my goodness they've won like one series in 15 years in bad beer stadium. Make it stop!

    Show some pride!

    Something!

    Hahaha.

    Fair enough. Busch Beer is to South St. Louisans what Old Style is to Cubs fans. It's something you kinda grow up with. I personally like it, but I've been drinking it a long time. It's certainly not a craft beer or microbrew. No argument there.

    Keep your head up about the outcome. Baseball is cyclical. I remember a few years ago the Cardinals could beat everybody... except the Reds. It was infuriating. It looks like the tables may have turned this season.

    Here's the good thing: Even with the loss and being 3.5 back or so, you're in the playoffs. The rest of the NL, outside of the central and all of the division leaders, is awful. Worst case scenario: You play in a wild card game. Win and you're in. The Cards made it work for them last year and were a win away from going to the WS. It's not the worst thing..

    ... But I'd definitely prefer to win the division.

    This is the Reds of 2013. The 4th or 5th best club in the NL during the regular season. Good enough to have above average pitching and medicore offense that can beat up the NL little sisters but not quite enough offensive diversity and arms this year (with key injuries) to win a long series vs. the Dodgers, Cardinals and Braves. It is pretty evident after 132 games that we are who we are. Likely headed towards the first back to back playoffs in 37 seasons (let that sink in), but a mild disappointment from the hopes going into the season (or at the early 35-21 mark).

    Hoping for lightning in a bottle at the end of the regular season and more than a 2.5 hour postseason cup of coffee. I am intrigued to see if they are up to the task. And if Latos and Bailey are up to the task the next couple of days.

    Yes, I drank beer in high school. And about 90% of you will be lying out your backside if you say you didn't.

    Back in my high school days it was Carling Black Label. Cheap and tasted a lot like Busch--horrible. I grew up.

    By the way, that was in 1966. Kids have always had beer.

    Little known story about Busch Beer and the Cardinals.

    Back in the 1966, when Anheuser owned the Cardinals and built a new stadium for them, Auggie Busch wanted to call the stadium "Budweiser Stadium" after the company's most popular beer. But MLB refused to have a stadium named after a beer.

    Auggie decided to name it "Busch Stadium" telling MLB he was naming it after himself. They agreed to that. Then Auggie started production on a new Anheuser product, Busch beer, making sure that the stadium was in fact named after one of his company's beers.

    So the brand Busch beer was only started so Auggie Busch could name his stadium after one of his beers.

    No wonder it sucks.

    Eh, it's not like Budweiser is any great shakes either, although it is better than Busch.

    But then again, I'm not much of a beer man anymore anyway. Gimme whiskey, rum, vodka, etc. any day. Drinking beer is way too hard on my stomach (just because of how filling it is) if I'm gonna drink more than just a few.

    Indeed they have. My dad was born in 1949 and can tell some eye-popping drinking stories.

    As long as it's forbidden, kids will want it.
