St. Louis Cardinals Cars

I recently visited my old hometown of St. Louis to visit family and I had the pleasure of visiting the "new" Busch Stadium to see a few games. Because I am a huge Cardinal fan and car fanatic, I had to see what some of the players were driving. OK, it's kinda stalker-ish, but I merely do it out of curiosity. I was very surprised to see what they drove. Granted, they change cars as quickly as they do girlfriends, but who am I???!!!
I hope I'm not invading their privacy, but I figured Cardinals fans out there might appreciate my leg work. The first car, the white beemer, is a 745i driven by catcher Yadier Molina. We actually saw him behing the wheel even though you can't see him in these pictures. The next shot is a general shot of the player's parking lot behind Busch Stadium. There is Chris Carpenter's Range Rover in the picture. The third picture is a white hummer H2 driven by pticher Braden Looper. The final two cars are Escalades driven by players whom we could not identify. They drove past us too fast. The great Albert Pujols drove a silver escalade one night and then a white bentley continental the next day. So Cardinals fans...I hope you enjoy! Please feel free to share your favorite celeb cars with us. Thanks!

NBA playoffs

Wow! I stayed up late last night watching the Utah Jazz knock off the Golden State Warriors. Congrats to them. Granted, I say that with reservation because I live in Suburban Cleveland and I root for the Cavs. By the way, they play tonight at home against the New Jersey nets. They are up in the series 3-1, so the odds are in their favor. Again, though, we ARE talking about CAVS! Anything could happen I guess but I can't go against Lebron in good conscience. Please stay tuned.
