What A Difference A Year Makes
It was a year ago today that Busch Stadium's demolition began. What a depressing winter. Gone with the familiar, the gray old lady with so many great memories. In with an unfinished ballpark with no tradition or memories. Plus lots of player turnover- 3 new position players out of 8. No one knew what was going to happen. But only a true fan's most optimistic dreams could have predicted the outcome.
Fast forward a year. All is right with the world.
And new jokes abound.
Q- What's the difference between the Cubs and the Cardinals?
A- The Cardinals have celebrated a championship in their new ballpark.
