It's good to have friends in high places... or at least have friends who have friends in high places. Turns out a new acquaintance of mine has a great connection to, no other than Tony La Russa (General Manager of the St. Louis Cardinals).
Knowing what a HUGE Cardinal fan my dad is, my new friend offered to call in a favor from Tony. Well, let's just say, you don't have to ask me twice! I quickly jumped on the opportunity. And boy, did he come through BIG TIME!
After a very brief but exciting personal phone call from my new BFF, Tony, and some exchanging of some information, plans were made.
My parents headed off St. Louis this weekend to celebrate their 32nd wedding anniversary, Father's Day, and, of course, watch the 3-game series against Oakland, compliments of the GM. I was assured that Tony personally dropped off their tickets to the "Press and VIP Lobby" and that they would be "taken care of" during their weekend in St. Louis!
I'm kinda bummed I didn't ask for more tickets, so I could join!!!
Anyway, here are some pictures of our last family trip to St. Louis, around 3 years ago...
