Apologies to our readers in the St. Louis area for that bit of sacrilege, but Red Sox fans have long memories, and “1946” and “1967” are still sore subjects in some corners of the Nation.
But without anything fresh in the hopper from Milwaukee (go, hapless Brewers!) or Detroit or Dallas-Fort Worth, it’s Busch Country for tonight’s update, as I slowly chug through the IDs gathered on the four-day madcap cross-country drive I made in July. We didn’t stop at all in St. Louis (unless you count the traffic jam on the Illinois side of I-70 approaching the bridge), but I wasn’t too worried about getting a comprehensive run of St. Louis IDs, since Lou seems to be there often enough. And in two top-hour runs from the passenger seat, I still managed to get at least one that wasn’t otherwise in the collection yet (99.1’s new identity as “Joy” KLJY). Oh, and the drive went within sight of the new Busch Stadium, so there’s at least some relevance to tonight’s update!
