Introduce Yourself!

Postby R27 » Sat Jul 04, 2015 8:37 pm

New to Redbird Talk? Introduce yourself here and tell us how you became a fan!

My name is Jon. To pay the bills, I manage a printing company. Originally from Canada, I now live in North Carolina with my wife, our son, and our two dogs. My other teams are the Green Bay Packers and the Ottawa Senators. I'm at @JonDoble on Twitter if you want to follow. I also write about the Cardinals at Redbird Dugout.

Dad listened to games on KMOX while growing up, so that got me introduced to Cardinals' baseball. Growing up as a kid in Canada, I'd been a Blue Jays fan. My first baseball memory is Joe Carter (who was my favorite Blue Jay) hitting that series clinching home run in 1993. My parents woke me up to watch it. I saw Andy Benes pitch a rehab start on my birthday in 1997 and got his autograph on a baseball, so he became one of my new favorite players. The next offseason he went to Arizona and so I cheered for them for the next few years. About the time the Cardinals acquired Scott Rolen in 2002, who was one of my favorite players at the time because third base was my favorite position, I stopped rebelling and firmly planted my flag in the Cardinals' camp.

I'm Daniel and I guess you could say I've been around awhile. Been on the Cardinal boards since 1999, been writing my blog since 2007, been doing podcasts and internet radio about the Redbirds since 2008 or so. I'm an accountant in Arkansas that Tweets @C70. Odds are, you know who I am, but if not, I look forward to meeting you!

Mike, born and raised a Cards fan in central Illinois. Played junior college and then division II basketball at SIUe on the east side of STL (not East St Louis though :shock: ). The knees stopped me from playing basketball anymore so I work downtown now as a software developer and still live on the Illinois side. Don't go to as many games as I used to but still keep a close eye on the team at all times.

Nic, from south Georgia. My dad is originally from Missouri and always talked about the Cards and watching/going to games when I was a kid. I've always had an interest in the team but it really took off as I got older and technology allowed me to listen and watch games. Since then I've been hooked.

Sam, aka EOCF, aka Edmonds_Owns_CF. Born and raised in Central IL. Cardinal fan by birth, but never really had a choice (I would've been written out of the will if I was anything else). I've been on CCH for about 10 years. I was looking for a good Cardinals forum when I was 15, stumbled on the Clubhouse and never really left. The core group of posters on there have helped cultivate my baseball knowledge and some have become good friends. I'm really happy to see that most of you have made the jump so that we can all continue to enjoy and discuss the greatest team on Earth!

Glad to see you made in over CF4L and EOCF. CCH has become a big part of my baseball life the last few years. Glad to see everyone making the move. Most intelligent Card fans on the net.

Real name is Roger, but better known as 'Hungo'. Had been a member of CCH for gawd, so long I don't honestly remember, LOL! Anyway, I'm from a not to big but not to small city in East Central IL. called Mattoon. It's in between Effingham & Champaign off of I-57. Been here for almost 60 years & I drive a Big Truck for a living. As some of you already know, I lost my wife of almost 30 years one year ago as of yesterday, but I still have my three daughter's & seven grandkids plus my dog named Max, so I'm not completely alone. Enough about all that. Just glad to be here for however long it may be. God bless you all :)

Ross, born and raised 35 miles east of St. Louis in Highland, IL. Dad was a huge Cardinals fan, so I became one, too! Listened to Jack Buck and Harry Carey broadcast the games for many years. I have moved around a lot due to my job, but always remained faithful to the Cards! Live in Brownsburg, IN now (boyhood home of Lance Lynn) but may be moving soon! Spent most of my life in Music Ministry, but looking for a change. Like R27, I am also a Packers fan! I don't comment much, but read most all of the posts to glean as much Cards info as I can.

Had to blink twice....make sure that I had seen A Crash sighting. Kind of a Freakster thing. Welcome.... 8-)

Will be interesting to see if Freakster returns, or this is his annual cameo.... ;)
