Former Cardinals Broadcaster Jerry Gross Passed Away

To be a St. Louis Cardinals fan who remembers Jerry Gross at the mike, one has to be fairly advanced in years and with a good memory. Gross, who passed away last Wednesday at the age of 81, worked for the club in 1961 and again in 1963 through 1967. On the field, he spanned the end of Stan Musial’s career with the World Champions of 1964 and 1967, the latter led by Red Schoendienst...

Poet Joseph Stanton on Cardinal Points

If you are like me, during the off-season, you are often in search of the new and interesting to read. I recently discovered such a gem in Cardinal Points: Poems on St. Louis Cardinals Baseball, by Joseph Stanton. The St. Louis native teaches Art and Art History and the University of Hawaii and has always loved the Cardinals. Though Stanton has a special spot in his heart for the...

Deflecting Attention

You can make fun of the Chicago Cubs in a near-infinite number of ways, and while most of the jokes center around a goat or the fact that the team hasn’t tasted victory champagne in over a century, we can always find new things to mock.  For example:   Is Clark the Cub a Deadspin Hall of Famer?

Jerry Trupiano: Longtime broadacaster sits down with The GM's Perspective

The GM’s Perspective: You’ve called games for every major sport for 40 years. That is very impressive. What’s the first thing to come to mind when you think about it? Jerry Trupiano: I started out doing hockey. It’s funny; you get labeled in this business. Early on I was a hockey guy then I started doing games in the NBA, and I was a basketball guy. After, I went to the...

Former Red Sox Hurler Ryan Dempster Retires

Ryan DempsterHe is Kevin Millar's best buddy. He does a wicked impersonation of Harry Caray. And, he saved the Red Sox $13.5 million last year. Those items—and the fact that he's retiring from baseball—are the things you need to know about Ryan Dempster. The 37-year old made his retirement official yesterday—ending a very good 16-year career for four teams, including the Red...

News to us: Harry Caray once went out 288 consecutive nights

I got to talking with a buddy at work today who somehow mentions that Harry Caray went out 288 consecutive days back in his heyday. They knew this because they found the legend’s diary, he said. There’s an internet to prove my friend wasn’t lying. Harry Caray drank the **** out of 1972. Highlights that need documented: Jan. 16 something unusual happens. Caray is in Miami,...

Staten Island Yankees v. Brooklyn Cyclones : Chase For The Wild Card

Staten Island continues to inch closer to a Wild Card spot (via Grandstand University) “It could be, it might be, it is a home run”, a phrase coined by the great Harry Caray, fit in great with Chris Breen’s walk-off home run in extra innings Monday night. The 2-1 victory pushed Staten Island one game closer to the Wild Card leader Brooklyn Cyclones. Not only are both teams...

WATCH: Orioles pitcher gives hilarious Harry Caray impersonation at Wrigley

When you think if Chicago baseball and Wrigley Field, you think of Harry Caray, probably about 4 beers deep, leading the daytime crowd in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” as the crowd joins in.  And if you watched on TV, you were always treated to his color commentary some funny quips, mispronunciations, and random (sometimes accurate) facts occasionally about what he had for dinner...

C.J. Wilson Responds to CM Punk’s Challenge

The other day, CM Punk took part in the latest trend to hit the interwebs. No, the former WWE Superstar didn’t break out a hackneyed Harry Caray impression. He did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. So, who would he challenge? A fellow wrestler perhaps? Maybe he’d take his former WWE boss Vince McMahon, to task?!? Nope. He challenged his buddy, fellow straight-edge superstar, Los...

WATCH: T.J. McFarland does his Harry Caray impression

For some reason (and, let’s be honest…it’s probably Will Ferrell’s fault), Major League Baseball players love to imitate Harry Caray. Seriously, it’s as if anyone with oversized black glasses thinks they have an open invitation to try and sound like the legendary Chicago Cubs broadcaster.  And, mostly, they come across as hackneyed copies of the impersonation the “Anchorman”...

U.L.’s Toothpick: The Year Of The Card–Hal McRae, 1974

We’ll never be able to quantify qualities like leadership or setting an example. I’m sure they exist inside the hallowed halls of the locker room, but all we have to go on is the anecdotal evidence. Perhaps that’s good enough—if players think another player is a leader, then I suppose he is.As you probably know, after the Royals became a powerhouse in the mid-1970s, Hal McRae...

Cubs Fan Finds Best Way To Get Premature Championship Tattoo (Photo)

First, there was the guy who got a tattoo that wrongly predicted that the University of Kentucky would win the 2014 NCAA men’s basketball championship. Then, someone else went ahead and inked the Detroit Lions as the 2015 Super Bowl champs. But one Chicago Cubs fan has it all figured out.

Teryn's Take: Cards take two of three at a great old ballpark

CHICAGO -- Old Wrigley never disappoints. The classic red sign, the green ivy, the lack of a giant electronic scoreboard -- it all takes you back to the days that are now depicted on murals on the side of the stadium. Taking the series against one of your rivals makes it even better. But as a fan of one of baseball's most decorated and storied franchises, I really do appreciate taking...
