We got those awesome KMOX 1120 AM "First Pitch Tickets" for Cardinals Opening Day. You have to wait in a couple of long lines to participate, but the tickets are only $11.20 for two. Then you get a random seat or sometimes standing room only. We drew standing room only for this game, probably because it's a pretty popular day at the ballpark.
We initially tried to obey our tickets and stand but it didn't work out. Not only would standing for hours suck but the other standers were blocking our view. No bueno.
Luckily we found a couple of empty seats.
I took a shot of the World Series pennants and texted it to a couple of my Cubs fan friends in case they hadn't seen one before.
