Go join the Ladue Yacht Club (and if you aren’t already, be a Punching Kitty fan) and you can come along too. Later on the wife Buffy and I are going to take the kids to the Cardinals game. We have great seats. You’ll be able to see us all game behind home plate, looking bored or on our cell phones. Can’t wait!
