It's like the Fucking Catalina Wine Mixer to some Cardinal fans. And luckily I haven't been since the year they introduced Tino Martinez and So Taguchi. I assumed it'd be all downhill from there, and I'm pretty sure I'm right. I enjoy saving my money, what can I say?
So by following from my computer screen, I've been able to notice that the million dollar athletes dress just as douchey as the $27K/year guys who hit on Trumbsy and the ML every Saturday night. The main difference is that Cardinal players can pay off a new Escalade (not to mention the Ameren bill) within their first paycheck of the year.
Don't get me wrong. A good percentage of the Cardinals dress nice, or at least keep it simple - so not to look like assclowns ten years from now when people go back and look at the pics. But we do have a good amount of "Brah" sightings over the past four years. You'll notice that 2008 (possibly the height of the Ed Hardy/striped shirt craze?) was a banner year for Cardinal douchiness.
Take a gander at what we collected and be sure to vote for the douchiest shirt below!
