The Rally Squirrel . . . Immortalized

All this content for Squirrel Week and yet nobody has mentioned the Rally Squirrel in St. Louis? In the playoffs last year, a squirrel scampered in front of home plate in the middle of a game. The Cardinals as you may recall, went on to win the World Series.




Think those two items are unrelated?

The Cardinals don't. The Rally Squirrel, as the little rodent came to be known, is apparently featured on the World Series rings just issued. Read more here at STLToday.com.

Maybe a store that sells records and squirrel-related merchandise? And fly kicks.

i just added my first bit of squirrel-themed decor to my house. pics on facebook. i'll patronize the shit out of your squirrel record kicks store. got my eye on a pair of grey and black rod lavers.

The Rod Laver winters are my shit. $65 well spent. I might get a pair of adidas Boat Lace shoes for the summer. They have holes in the bottom so your feet can breathe and I'm a sweaty dude.

I never wore the Adidas Stan Smiths in the 70's and 80's. Maybe it's time.

And Zman, get ready for the Teedge to explain that the kids don't call it "a record store" any more. Even though this Saturday is Record Store Day.

Damn you people. Now I'm going to have to go ahead and get those Lavers. Too fresh not to.

Also, The Black Keys will be on No Reservations this evening. If you're into that sort of thing.

NC State's DeShawn Painter is transferring to ODU. Huge pickup for the Monarchs.
