I feel the Cardinals' fans pain

I feel so sorry for Cards fans. Awful, even. No, not over the Gambler and "Dirtgate."

There's a hysterical post and comment thread over at the Cards' blog "Cardinals Diaspora." Cardinal fans are up in arms. Why? Look at their lineup of singers for the national anthem and 7th inning stretch.

The Cardinals have announced their musical line-up for games 3 and 4 of the World Series, and if I may say just one thing… Jesus H Christ

Here’s your 2006 World Series musical performers:

Game 3 National Anthem: country singer Trace Adkins (HonkeyTonk Badunkadunk)

Game 3 God Bless America: country singer Jo Dee Messina (High Pitch Nasal)

Game 4 National Anthem: Billy Ray Cyrus (Seriously)

Game 4 God Bless America: country duo Sugarland (lead singer looks like Rachel Dratch)

Detroit gets rock and roll HOF'er, and Detroit diety, Bob Seger and the greatness of Anita Baker (I'm not going to say anything about the American Idol rejects FOX foisted upon us), yet St. Louis gets...Billy Ray Cyrus? That's just crimimal.

  1. Even you, Big Al, had to admit that Trace did a fine job singing the National Anthem. I know, the hair is a bit much, but I seem to have a thing for tall goofy white guys..... //wink//
