Today was 'Cardinals' day at work. We could wear jeans in today if we wore Cardinals attire. Now, I'm not into sports. And as a Texan, I certainly have no Cardinals raiment. But since wearing jeans here is such a damn rare thing, and I've been travelling during all the previous 'jeans days' over the last year, I was jumping at this chance. My mission? Find a Cardinals shirt.

It was much tougher than I anticipated. EVERYONE carried t-shirts, but not only was I not going to wear a t-shirt, I had even sent out a communication to all my folks reminding them that as contractors, we were to set the example and I strictly limited what they could wear. What I was hoping to find was either a red button-down oxford with the Cardinals logo on it, or a similar shirt in a polo. Alas, nothing. As we were checking out of Target my wife asked the lady in front of her where she'd picked up her Cardinals jersey. "Value City." Hmmmm. Not exactly my type of store. Nonetheless, we stopped by. Not only was the staff very pleasant, they had something other than just t-shirts. A lady helped me pick out a white jersey in my size, and suggested a blue turtleneck to 'dress it up' for work, which they also carried. My mission was a success!

(2:35:26 PM) drax0r: I almost didn't recognize you in a STL baseball jersey.

Funny thing about turtlenecks, I used to wear them quite a bit. Each winter I'd get a L.L. Bean catalog and "Ooh" and "Aah" over the 99 colors of turtlenecks they sold. Then I'd end up buying only one white, and one black.

Let's hope your readers don't think STL is turning you into some kind of sports fanatic.

You and the Cluckster look very nice! Is it my imagination or does his head look HUGE?

What's the matter are you chicken of Cluck?

Since you are probably already in bed I’ll go ahead a say it for you....

My favorite Cluck story to date, is this:

Mr. Cluck's children's school class was hatching chicks in a class project. Each of the students had their names put on on their class shirt for this school year activity. Yes, his daughter's read, "Chicks '06 - CLUCK"

It is not the Clukster’s head. Once again Eric is at the edge of the shot. Clearly this camera has a spherical aberration in its lens at wide angles which makes Eric’s head look smallish in this shot. In this case it’s merely an unfortunate optical illusion caused by the Clucksters proximity to Eric’s head. I submit the below example of another image Eric posted previously exhibiting the same smallish head issue.

Nuff said?...

I 've learned some valuable lessons during this exercise. Wear white, not black.

I don't know why, but for some reason, you remind me of my dad in this photograph.

You model the suggested outfit well. It suits you.

I don't give a good Goddamn about sports.

Perhaps I should retire from blogging.

You hate your dad. I don't know how to take that.

Thank you. I'm sure a Texas Ranger's would fit me better.

I don't give a good Goddamn about sports.
I'm right there with you.

Perhaps I should retire from blogging.
That's probably the most igornant thing I think I've ever heard you say.

It must be your pose. He use to stand there a lot. Maybe you just look like an intelligent professional who is also a provider.

That's probably the most igornant thing I think I've ever heard you say.
I will give you 24 hours to think of all the ignorant things I have said and allow you to retract this statement. How is it ignorant?

(pejorative definition) Ignorance 2) is the choice to not act or behave in accordance with regard to certain information in order to suit ones own needs/beliefs."I know better but I choose to ignore that and do/say/act in a way that behooves me."

You're an artist, and run from it though you may try, you'll never be able to hide.

Good pic. Really. I like those boots. You look ready to kick some ass if somebody starts to make fun of you.

Not that I'm making fun of you. I'm neutral on baseball. Actually, when I was in high school, we went to STL for a interstate band concert and to see the Cardinals play.

I'll never forget this day. I made a new friend from Illinois - her name is Anne Miller (no relation). Also, I was supposed to play a solo on my trumpet - but I had just lost first chair to a freshman in the band. He ended up playing the solo - and doing very well. Little guy was a gifted musician - he could also play the violin quite well. I hold no animosity for him. I was too busy oggling my new friend Anne...

Oh memories... precious memories!

You seem to remember everything. No wonder you're doing so well in your classes.

We had a sports-themed "employee appreciation day" at work last year, so we could dress in jeans if we wore sports-themed clothes. Being the nerd that I am (and my husband being of simliar persuasion) we had no sports shirts.

The solution? I wore an old Star Wars Episode One t-shirt, which had podracers and lightsaber battles on it - racing and fencing! Two sports!

Well played ma'am!
