This years Home Opener was fun due to its home coming atmosphere. There was a mind numbing chill in the air but Cardinal Nation showed up. It was great watching the sea of red go crazy over the All Star Old Timers such as Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Bruce Sutter and Ozzie Smith. As I tried to keep warm, I was able to feel the electricity in the air over this Cardinal Team. The night exploded with Ryan Luwicks Home Run and Albert Pujols once again becoming a hit machine. The team lost 4-6 due to poor pitching selection on the part of Jason Motte. I still had a wonderful time being a part of 2009’s Home Opener.
