Game Haiku – 05/17/10 – Cardinals 6, Nationals 2

Lohse gets first win of 

the year. Cards breath a sigh of 
relief. Freese triples.

Game Haiku – 05/16/10 – Reds 7, Cardinals 2

Reds take series, first 

place. Cards haven’t seen 2nd 
place since last July! 

Game Haiku – 05/15/10 – Reds 4, Cardinals 3

Civil Rights Game day

Inequality between 
Leake, Wainwright. Leake wins. 

Game Haiku – 05/14/10 – Cardinals 4, Reds 3

Pujols, Ludwick go

long. Cards hang on to first place 
by their fingernails.

Game Haiku – 05/13/10 – Astros 4, Cardinals 1

Swept by the Astros? 
Norris: no Nolan Ryan, 
yet he baffles Cards.

Game Haiku – 05/12/10 – Astros 9, Cardinals 6

“I wasn’t very 

good,” Lohse says after loss. Kyle, 
I tend to agree. 

Game Haiku – 05/11/10 – Astros 6, Cardinals 3

Hmm, is that Walter 

Matthau subbing for Tony? 
Bad News Cards blow it.

Game Haiku – 05/09/10 – Cardinals 11, Pirates 4

Cards bats arise! Lots 

of support for Wainwright. Cards 
take series from Bucs.

Game Haiku – 05/08/10 – Pirates 2, Cardinals 0

Solid pitching by

Garcia who gets no help; 
Ludwick miscalled out

The Empire Strikes Out

IMG_4986-1.jpgAllow me to briefly digress from the Cardinals and talk about my trip to Dodger Stadium on Friday for Star Wars night.  They commemorated the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back with a lot of treats for the fans in the MyTown section.

I have to say the MyTown section is an excellent deal. For $50, we got a ticket, all you can eat food and soda, and a t-shirt.  And not just any t-shirt – a Boba Fett t-shirt! 
There were a lot of fans in costumes milling around outside the MyTown section and posing for photos with the fans. I got my pic with Chewbacca.  Chewie also threw out the first pitch. 


The folks who design the big screen videos did a nice job theming things for the evening (check out Manny Ramirez as Chewbacca). There was a cool montage of the Dodgers hitting where the bats were replaced with light sabers.
I’d say the only weak spots were the weather – cold! And the theme food: Darth Taters (just a bag of potato chips), lightsabers (popsicles).  
It was fun to see an interleague game.  With a dominant performance from pitcher Chad Billingsley, the Dodgers beat the Tigers 4-1 and achieved a share of first place.  Also, the Don’t Stop Believin’ Guy was awesome!
