SparkPeople Cardinal Nation Team Messageboard Come join fans of the best team in baseball! SparkPeople Cardinal Nation Team Messageboard Finally feeling like I'm where I'm supposed to be ...except for the weight! I gained more than 50 lbs about 2 years ago due to severe anxiety/depression. My life is going MUCH better, but unfortunately I haven't managed to shake the weight I gained. So, I decided to try out Spark People, and hopefully meeting some positive friends on here, and maybe even some local Philly buddies, I might be able to get on the right track! Sun, 25 Nov 2018 18:41:32 EST What are your Cardinal baseball plans this season? When I married my husband 33 years ago I didn't know that I would become a member of the Cardinal Nation. It is a family tradition now. Every year my husband and I attend the I 35 series games with our 2 sons who are grown and on their own. Hubby and I also travel to Denver each summer to catch the Cards play the Rockies, since my oldest son lives there. What are your plans this summer? Mon, 21 Apr 2014 09:33:56 EST Let's post some fitness points for tonight's game Hey, It was a tough loss last night. Let's get some fitness minutes in today in support for our team!! We have to win tonight! Mon, 28 Oct 2013 08:47:13 EST New...Again! I first joined SP about a year ago and lost 40 pounds. I quit dieting and not really caring anymore right before my BFF's wedding. I decided today that I need to get back on track to lose the weight that I need to lose. Mon, 29 Apr 2013 11:45:26 EST Predictions for 2013? Opening day is right around the do you guys think we're going to do this year? And is anyone worried the Waino contract situation is going to wind up like Pujols? Sun, 24 Feb 2013 16:24:03 EST I'm throwing out a Challenge for the NLCS So very exciting that our Cardinals are back in the National League Championship Series. I know I'll be watching, no I'll be GLUED to the TV tonight and tomorrow and we all know how bad that is to sit and do nothing! <BR> <BR> So I'm throwing a little challenge out to those of you who are going to watch the series. I challenge you to get up and move for EVERY commercial. It can be what ever you want, walk in place, lift weight, do jumping jacks, run around your apartment. Just get up an... Sun, 14 Oct 2012 12:15:48 EST Know your Cardinal I've been noticing lately that I can identify most of the team from their at-bat stances. I often "watch" games while Sparking, so often distracted and when I look up, I'm not sure who's at bat. But even if the camera shot is not close, I can usually figure it out from the way they carry themselves at the plate. <BR> <BR> Anybody else notice this? Mon, 27 Aug 2012 21:08:00 EST Ball Park Food I need some help, what do you guys eat when you're at the ball park? We're there every homestand on the weekend and I can't figure out what food would be the best for me to eat or how many calories to count. <BR> <BR> Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated, <BR> Thanks, <BR> Lynn Sun, 19 Aug 2012 10:14:36 EST Hi there Cards Nation I have been a Cards' fan my entire 62.75 years (parts of it is what I have been told by my mom who is as big a Cards' fan as me). I am really excited now because I can sit in a seat at the stadium and not overlap onto the other person sitting next to me. Yay!!! Wed, 27 Jun 2012 20:08:29 EST Anyone at 4/14 game to get replica ring? I'm at school listening to the game while I organize my room. Just wondering if any Sparkers got to go to today's game and get a replica ring? Does it look as cool as they described on the radio? Just curious!

I get really mad when I see a restaurant sign say, "Cub Fans Welcome!" WHAT??? I, of course, must let them know since Card fans were not invited they didn't need my business any more. It's a city divided. And all the surrounding central Illinois towns and cities are the same. I like to wear my Cardinal shirt and hat when I visit my kids in Ch...

Woot! <BR> Ruby <BR> <em>300</em> Mon, 12 Apr 2010 12:40:30 EST How I Became A Fan My dad would to take us to the games whenever he had the chance as he worked at night, with little time to spend with us but he loved baseball. I enjoyed being with him, and learning from him. I remembered getting an autographed baseball and bat as those were the days. Living in Atlanta, the Cardinals are my favorite team as every St. Louis team is, includes the Rams, and the Blues. Too bad we don't have a basketball team! <em>300</em> <em>281</em> <em>131</em> Sat, 21 Nov 2009 09:42:43 EST Magic Number It's now at 14. <BR> The number of games that the Cards need to win or Cubs lose to clinch the central division. <BR> We are also tied with the Dodgers for the best record in the NL.
