The 5 Best Cherokee Street Cinco de Mayo Moments

We had a great time at Cinco de Mayo despite the heat that the lack of shady spots. The tacos were good, and music was lively (and hopefully not making fun of us since we had no idea what they were saying) and the photo ops were plentiful. Here are our favorites. [Editor’s Note: Also, thanks for your help in funding the Cherokee Street parade’s Kickstarter campaign! It was just barely funded before time ran out. [Read More]

Summing Up the Weekend

Cardinals, Cardinals, Cardinals! From Squirrels to dancing on a broken Ryan Howard, to a defeat by the Brewers, this weekend was all Cardinals, all the time. Even we succumbed to the fever by live-blogging the NLDS Game 5 and NLCS Game 1. We didn’t go all in and paint our face like a giant red Cardinals baseball, like this guy, but we just decided to wear our red Cardinals hat instead of our stupid green one. [Read More]

Joplin: Before and After

Photographer Aaron Fuhrman has been posting photos on his Flickr stream of old Google Streetview images of Joplin with shots taken after the tornado. Amazing devastation.

Too bad that guy looking at the pile of rubble that used to be his house got in the shot. Freaking ruined everything. He really needs to start thinking about others.

The KSDK Staff Takes a Look in to the Past…It’s Rough.

KSDK.com’s little sister site MomsLikeMe.com recently took a look back with some old photos from the KSDK staff’s past. Some are quite cute, like little Kay Quinn in her Hawaiian outfit: Awww. Next up? Art Holliday, the target of all spilled affection on the Art Holliday Facebook Fan Club. We had no idea he was a Little Rascal. Next up? Sports guy turned anchor Mike Bush! A few things to note in this picture: 1. [Read More]

St. Louisan Makes the Very First Ford Escort Truck

Driving down Forest Park Parkway, the “intra-city 40”, and a truck pulls in ahead of us.

Seems small though. Can’t figure out what’s wrong with this thing, but something is off. Wait a minute…that’s a Ford Escort…that is a Ford Escort truck!  …which aren’t supposed to exist and thus are like a chick with a third boob. You know, like at first you hear about it and you are like “Whoa! Three boobs?! That sounds awesome…and then you get there and after looking at it, its not quite right and makes everything look off because they aren’t lined up horizontally, but the third one is aligned vertically with the right boob making her look like some sort of weird dog girl which isn’t what you were hoping.  …maybe if there were four and she was evened out…no, even then, its just wrong and your dreams and expectations tempered like so many Saved by the Bell-themed wet dreams after watching Showgirls.

Have you ever really needed a truck but only had an old 4-door car? Lets say you did. Now let me ask you this: In that situation, would you think to yourself “Well I’ve got a shit-load of time on my hands! Lets just make a truck out of my Ford Escort!”

No. You wouldn’t think that. This guy did though. Thought it. Did it. …and now he is legend.

As the Cardinals Play the Cubs, Lets Take a Look on Their Fans

Another Cubs vs Cardinals series starts this weekend and we felt that is was high time we take a look at a sampling of Cubs fans with a little help from our friends at OtherTeamsFans.com

Some of them are more attractive than others, but one this is for sure, they wouldn’t know what winning felt like if it landed on their face. Which it won’t. Because they like the Cubs and they never win. Get it? The Cubs never win. Ever. They’re horrible. Cardinals are good though. Not the Cubs.

Morons in the Humidity: A Busch Stadium Safari

As we said earlier today, we went to the ballgame last night…and unlike most times, we brought our camera! We have a few great clear shots of some particular Busch Stadium species we all know and love (to hate). First up is Ithinkimcool forsomereason-us which is latin for “smug douche”. This guy decides its in his best interest to ruin other people’s fun at the game because he’s sad for some reason deep down inside. [Read More]
