A Case of Mistaken Identity: How I Became a St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Fan–Kinda Sorta

Me in St. Louis wearing my Cardinals Baseball CapDid you know that “Fan” is short for “Fanatic”?

There are fans, then there are FANS.

I am a fan but not a FAN Get it? Got if? Good! LOL

If you’re scrunching your face up, fear not my fellow baseball fan, all will become clear, just keep reading. 🙂

I enjoy baseball. If I’m going to watch any professional sporting event, then it will probably be a baseball game. And Baseball is just about the ONLY professional sporting event that I’ll actually spend money and time to go see, live, in person.

I have a new article on Squidoo

Only once, when I really desperately needed a job which required me to shave my beard did I shave the beard.  But as soon as I found work elsewhere, the beard came back.  Needless to say I wasn’t at that particular job long.  I hated not having a beard.

Something else that I may not have mentioned… I like baseball.  I’m not a baseball nut or anything but I enjoy watching the game on TV and baseball is one of the very few sports that I enjoy going to the actual event to see in person.  I’ve even gone to a couple of college games.

Of course we’re talking men’s baseball.  Not so much into the ladies baseball.  Go figure.  😉

So without further ado, I bring you my latest Squidoo Article:

“Have You Noticed All the Beards in Baseball?
