So, as you know, I was born in St. Louis, MO and grew up right outside. I'm a huge fan of the Cardinals and was raised on Budweiser. And as the whole world knows, Anheuser-Busch has just been taken over by InBev, a huge Belgian beer conglomerate. This may be big news in general but it is HUGE news in St. Louis! My friends and family keep sending me emails as if I have something to do with this (which I don't by the way!) or can do something about it (which I, obviously can't!) However, some St. Louisans are taking it all with a grain of salt.
(Don't put salt in your beer!)
Here's my favorite so far. And stay strong my St. Louis brothers and sisters!
InBev to Change Cardinals Uniforms
(Brussels) Anheuser-Busch has accepted a $52 billion takeover bid from Belgium-based InBev NV to create the world's largest beer maker and end a month-long standoff. While pitching the deal in recent weeks, InBev chief executive Carlos Brito has said that he is "committed to the city of St. Louis" and that changes here would be minimal. One that Brito said will show up shortly after this weeks Major League Baseball All-Star event in New York will be a minor one in the long standing uniforms worn by the St. Louis Cardinal Baseball team.
First-baseman Albert Pujols, one of the first to try the new outfits said "while it may take a little time for Cardinal fans to fall in line behind the change, I personally like them a lot. They'll really be enjoyable during those hot, muggy days in late July and August. I expect all of the fans will be wearing them before the end of the season!"
Sporting goods stores around the St. Louis area report brisk sales of the new Cardinal memorabilia.
