I am new to "blogging, twitting, and other ings." I got my start into Cards in the late '40s. Born in St. Louis, moved to Brentwood when a year old. Went to my first game in 1950. Got my hair cuts from Mr. Ken Marion, and went through grade school and high school with his son, Ken. Mr. Marion was brother of Marty Marion.
Later, my folks moved out to Chesterfield and lived next to a general manger or something like that. They had multiple Cardinal "stuff". One was an autographed 1926 Cardinal team baseball!

I wish I knew more about how to write these things and do more. I got my first cell phone about 1.5 years ago. My son tells me to get into the 21st century. However, when I call him and leave a detailed message, he calls back and asks me what I want. Can't he get into the 21st century and listen to my message??

I have gotten to the point of walking about 2.25 miles 5 days per week. Goal is for 3 mi. per day.

You all have a great day. Happy Thanksgiving

I've been a Cardinals fan all my life, loving Spark People and wanting to know if anyone lives in the St Louis area. We are going to the Cincinatti game tonight down at Busch Stadium, lots of steps to be had tonight.

Hey Julie! Good to have you on board! I created this team and used to be the team leader. But I quit sparking a few years ago and when I started back, I had been replaced! LOL I am not sure how active this team is anymore as I rarely visit my spark teams. I need to get back to it, so hopefully this will be the first of many conversations on these forums. Again, Welcome. And GO CARDS!

HI Everybody. My name is Julie. I am from Illinois- No where near Chicago. I work at a preschool - not a public school. I have been in early childhood for over 15 years. I was pretty successful last time I was on spark but I let drama and life situations get me back into my bad habits. I am heavier now than ever before. The Spark team I was most active on before is basically an inactive team at this point. So I am looking for a team to offer some of the support I was getting before.
I was recently married in 2013. I have 2 daughters and 1 granddaughter. I want to show my girls who unfortunately have followed in my weight gain habits that weight loss can be done and in a healthy way.

Hi I am from Walnut Grove MO. I have been a Cardinal fan for as long as I can remember. My Grandpa was a fan. Disappointed that they did not win this year. looking forward to next year.

Has anyone heard Gretchen Wilson's Redbird song? It is a take off of her Redneck Woman song.

Hey Everyone. I am looking forward to a great season with the red birds! My kids even made me a Cards fleece blanket for Christmas so I can wrap up in and watch the games :) I am a Portland native, but grew up loving the Cards cause they were my grandpas favorite team and it was our special thing together. Nice to meet you all :)

If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up! - ?

Are you watching this game?!? Fantastic. The Cardinals are so Hot and Pujols is having a great postseason. I've been a Card's fan for the past 20 years. All my kids are proud citizens of Cardinal Nation. My home town in Kansas City, so I'll always love the Royals and hate the Yankees.

I just joined the Cardinal Nation Spark Team. How great to combine fitness and my LOVE for the Cardinals. I grew up in St. Louis County in the 80's with all of those great Cardinal teams, and am a life long fan. I really hope they can re-gain the lead in the Central to make it to post-season.

Hi everyone! I'm glad I found this team. I didn't really know how the Spark Leaderboards worked, but once I saw that there was a team for Cardinals fans, I had to join! I currently live in the Chicago suburbs, but I'm definitely a Cardinals fan. It's in my blood, the Cards are very important in my family. Go Cards in 2011! And good luck everyone on their fitness plans for this year.

Hello Everyone! I'm Kelly, a born and bred St. Louis Cardinals fan. Bred in the bone for that matter, my family is all from StL and has been forever, the Cards are just part of my life. I remember getting my tickets to the game every year for being on the A grades list (my dad even saved the newspapers with my name in the list) My mom's great aunt was one the vault teller at Busch for many years, so once she got done spoiling her grandkids with the giveaways we got them. I had all kinds of things. I loved going to games. I loved listening to games. We had a habit of driving to Ted Drewes and listening to games the whole time. To this day listening to a game makes me crave a chocolate chip concrete :) I live in Columbia no, hoping to move back in a few years. Still cheer for the cards every chance I get. teaching my son to be a Cards die-hard fan, cause there's no other way to live :)

I've been a fan since the early '60s. Loved Bob GIbson, Lou Brock and Tim McCarver back in the day. Current favorites are Skip Schumaker, Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright [and of course Albert]. Can't wait for the 2010 season!

Hello, all! Team member #100 here!!

You can tell from my member name that I am a fan of the best team in baseball!! My name is Jackie and I've been rooting for the Cards since 1973--when my family moved to STL. I now live in Vegas, but am still a die-hard fan! I even got a little Redbird tattoo on my right hip for my 40th birthday!!

My favorite players are Ozzie Smith and Albert Pujols--our reigning MVP!!!!

Can't wait for spring so we can see our boys play again!!

Hi there, my name is Tina I worked for the Crads from 1979 until 1991 when i moved to Tennessee. I started selling nachos in the portables, then the ice cream stand and then onto Stand supervisor. I miss the stadium work so much and the fans. I still watch it on TV when its televised here, but they show more Brave games here than Cards.
I have pics of Ozzie Smith also autographs, Jack Clark, Jim Sexton, Whitey Herzog, and several others.
I hope to be able to go to the new stadium whenever I go back to my hometown of Dupo, IL, whenever I am there.

Fly like a butterfly, leap like a frog, hug one another, love one love all!

Hey guys, I made it back to St. Louis in November and was able to split season tickets with some friends. It looks like there are a lot of posts here, which is good since my previous Cards team died off and my Blues teams been struggling.

Hey all, my name is Alex. I grew up in StL and my family has lived and breathed the Cards my whole life (my wife was almost not allowed to her first Christmas with the family because there was a rumor that she was a Cubs fan). I am currently in grad school just outside of Cleveland and have been going through withdrawal that neither the Indians nor American League baseball can get me through.

Hi my name is Chrissy and I love watching Cardinals baseball. I've only been in MO for a little under 4 years but they are a really great team. My husband used to watch them while we lived in CA. I must say I have kind of a split loyalty to the Cardinals. I love the Angels as well but I don't get to see them play much.

Hey Cardinal Nation! My name is Jon and have been a huge cardinal fan my whole life. Anyways, I was raised in STL, in north county, and then I joined the Air Force. I'm in Texas now, but anywhere I go, i'll always remain faithful to my Redbirds!

Hello Cardinal Nation! Just joined Sparks and am ready to get my life in order. My girlfriend found this website so she and I joined together. We got back together after being apart for 25 years. During that time we both were married, had kids and lived our lives, but something was missing. I have never been happier now that we are back together and I look forward to seeing her every time I open my eyes in the morning. She is just so amazing. I retired from the US Navy in Jan 06 after 20 long years and now work for the Government in St. Louis. I have gotten lazy about working out but I want to get healthy so that my girlfriend and I have a nice long life together. I know that we will make our goals. Great luck to all of us. See you at the Ball Park, go RedBirds.

Hi everyone! I am obviously a Cardinals fan (who else would dress up and get their picture taken with FredBird?). I became a self-employed crafter last August...before the economy tanked...but I'm hanging in there. I make accessories for female sports fans. My website is www.thefemalefan.com. Because it is going to be FREEZING here today in St. Louis, I will be crafting a lot. Always looking to add new items to my site. I am sooooo ready for baseball to begin, and warmer weather!!!

Hi everyone! I am so excited I found this team. Around our house we are all Cardinal fans. My husband and I love to take a weekend and go to St. Louis for a game. We live about two hours north of St. Lou in Quincy, IL. I used to go to games with a friend and her family when I was in 5th grade. I saw Ozzie play! Looking forward to the season, hoping to be quite a bit thinner this year! GO CARDS!

Hi, I'm Andrea and I LOVE THE CARDINALS!!! However, I am engaged to be married to an avid Cubs fan which should make life pretty interesting. My dad is hoping that I'll "convert" my fiancee, while my fiancee's dad is hoping he will "convert" me!

I live in Peoria, Illinois but I have been to several games in St. Louis, one in Cincinnati (Cards vs. Reds), and one in San Diego (Cards vs. Padres). I love visiting other Major League Ballparks, but I will always be true to my Busch Stadium - the new stadium is AWESOME!!!!

Hello, my name is Lynn and I've been doing SP for about 2 months. I am just now looking into teams and am very excited there is a Cardinals group!

I lived in St. Louis for 5 years, and fortunately one of those was 1982, a Championship year!! What a fun time for the city. I remember Ozzie, Darrell, Whitey, etc. even although I was only in 9th grade.

I live in Indiana now and after a long hiatus from following the Redbirds, I've come back into it for the past couple years. My favorite players are Yadi Molina, Russ Springer, and Skip.

I saw them play the Reds in August and although they lost, it was fun to see "the boys" in person.

I collect Cherished Teddies - I have a house full (not actually, but if you were to ask my husband and sons that is what they would tell you) ;-)



3 things to always remember:..
1. Calories are the only thing that matter when it comes to your weight.
(If you eat too many you gain and if you eat less and burn more, with
activity-You eliminate excess weight-hopefully forever!!!)
2. Exercise is not optional - EVER!!! To lose weight and to keep off any
lost weight...60-90 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity on most days
is REQUIRED!
3. Do not ever use the word DIET!!! Welcome to your new healthy lifestyle.

Hi again. just thought i'd share how i became a cardinal fan. its acually in my blood , my 4th cousin , kinda distant , but still kin (lol) was Harry "the cat" Brecheen , who won 3 world series games in 1946. i remember growing up listening to cardinal games with my great grandpa Alec Brcheen , Harry's cousin , on his porch , back when Bob Gibson and Lou Brock played. there was never a doubt who my favorite team would be! this my favorite time of year , when baseball is starting up and spring is blooming. i think this year's team will be so fun. so much young , hard playing talent! i can't wait , what a start 4-1! woohoo!

Hi everyone! So happy to see a Cardinals team...I love my redbirds! My name is Jaime. I am a teacher in St. Louis. My favorite Cardinals memory was being at Game 4 (although my ticket says Game 5 when they won it! stupid rain out!) of the World Series in 2006. A close second would have to be a game against the Cubbies a few years ago...we were trailing the whole game and then Renteria hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 9th and won it for us...almost everyone had left at that point except the Cubs fans and my brother and I. We were loving it! I'm so happy that baseball season is back!

I am up in the Great White North (Wisconsin) or as I tell people (especially my southern relatives) God's Country! I have been a Cards fan since I was about 7-8 yrs old. I was probably one of the few people in Wisconsin who wanted the Cards to win the World Series when they played the Brewers in 1982.

I live in Bradenton. That is about 45 minutes south of Tampa and 5 minutes north of Sarasota. Don't get the chance to see many games in the spring. The Cardinals are about 2 1/2 + hours away and come near me. My work life just does not allow me to get away.

Long time Cardinal fan that was born in Weldon Springs. Now I am stuck too far away from my beloved Cards, I live in Florida. Oh what I would do to be back in St. Louis. But my wife hates cold weather, and if I have to choose between my wife or watching all the Cardinal games, I will pick my wife. Trying to lose about 60 pounds on the advice of the doctor, so far so good. I don't have tons of will power
so I will need all the good luck I can get.

Hello Everyone! Am I the only one that is actually local to St. Louis?

My 9yr old son is a huge cards fan as well. I have family that was even a pitcher for the White Sox a few years back when they won the World Series, and my lovely son still rooted the Cards on. At the time the WS was going on I even said aren't you excited you know the pitcher, and his response was "who cares, he's not a cardinal".

Anyways.. great to be part of the team!

Hi all, and thanks for the invite!

About me, we moved to Southern Illinois in 1980 when I was 10, and went to see the Cardinals for my Mom's birthday that same year. From that day on, I've been hooked! I moved away in 1988, and even while I spent 10 years just a few miles away from Fulton County Stadium and later Turner Field in Atlanta, I've never even thought about changing teams. We took our red-garbed selves to games there every chance we could, and we get back to St. Louis a few times a year for games as well. My profile image is from the next to last game at old Busch Stadium.

I'm in the mountains of Southwest Virginia now, not far away from our Rookie League team in Johnson City, TN. I'm thrilled that we're finally into Opening Day month, but my goodness, this has been a winter of changes!

By the way, Melanie, I work from home and do websites and such too. I absolutely do NOT miss commuting...

Peace.

I'm married w/ two kids (12-YO girl & almost 5-YO boy, and am blessed to have such a great family. I often refer to ourselves as a "fan-ily" because we all love our baseball! It's a great way for us to spend time together.

I love to knit & cook, and am addicted to nerdy electronics. I'm really into things like dual-band satellites, pda's, computers, web servers, etc etc. I work from home as a web designer and webmaster to several local businesses. I'm also into rebate profiting, nothing like getting free stuff PLUS making money!

Glad to be here, and thanks Michelle for creating this group!
