Sorry to not deliver last night, I was a bit "tired" when I got home. Anyways...
The StL Flying Saucer had a soft opening last night that I was able to attend thanks to the guys at StL Hops and Flying Saucer staff. It was a great event and the space is really nice. They are still deciding on where they plan to start the Ring of Honor...I'm partial to right next to the "Ring of Honor" plates hanging over the windows facing Busch.
Just from talking to various people, my campaign has apparently taken on legs that I hoped but did not think it would. Cardinal fans are not pleased and there may be competition.
I will be starting a Twitter, Tumblr blog and Google Doc to carry out this journey. Through the Google Doc, you guys will be able to suggest beers or featured Royals, and I will keep a running tab to maintain financial transparency.
Tonight will be visit #1. In honor of the number and it being his birthday, the featured Royal will be Cookie Rojas. While not a member of the '85 team, Cookie is a Royals HOFer and symbolically was traded from the Cardinals to the Royals where he was selected to multiple All Star teams.
In closing, try to enjoy this photo I took last night looking from the inside of the Saucer at Busch. For the next 67 days, I am only sitting with my back to that thing.
