Yesterday it was the sun in the eyes,today its raindrops.Summer in St.Louis:)

Yup. : (

The rain has come our way this morning,but stayed away last night for Rascal Flatts.
Good,but I liked Dave Matthews better.
Pirates won;that makes it 4 in-a-row for them.Cole is nasty and is their best,but I not convinced the rest of the staff can do it for the season.Of I say that and I hope that our staff takes no more injjury hits………………..the line up too.

Yeah, I heard that Gerrit Cole’s the first pitcher to get 10 wins this season. Man, rain’s still in the forecast all today. Sure hope they don’t call a rain-out again. The Cards’ haven’t batted against May, the Twins’s starting pitcher. Maybe they’ll figure him out quick. Did you see Heyward’s ridiculous blind catch? Joc Pederson’s catch was sumpin’, as well.
Not exactly a fan of country, but RFlatts is cool. Not as good as DMathews, as you said.; )
