Rodgers, Nelson Hanging with the St. Louis Cardinals
The Green Bay Packers arrived in St. Louis on Friday and then they had some time to kill before getting ready to play the Rams today. So Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson went and hung out with some guys on the St. Louis Cardinals over at Busch Stadium.

Being a Milwaukee Brewers fan, I hate the fucking Cardinals. Kind of like I hate the Chicago Bears. Except, the Cardinals are good every year, which just pisses me off more. Being a fan of a small-market team in baseball usually means you get a really good season (and a playoff appearance) once every 10 years or so.
Now, the Brewers have put together a couple playoff seasons over the past 10, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Cardinals get to be good every goddam year.
And not just that, it’s the way they play. They’re part of the good old boy, unwritten rules of baseball police, something instilled by their shitbag manager Mike Matheny. If you ever want to see a prick with negative sense of humor, listen to Mike Matheny talk.
But don’t get too close because he’ll have someone throw at your head for crowding him.
Before Matheny, this approach was instilled by Tony LaRussa who, guess what. Is a Hall of Famer based on the fact that he was lucky enough to coach some guys who juiced a hell of a lot. Those guys will probably never get in the Hall, but LaRussa does because… I don’t know. He never openly admitted his accomplishments are directly tied to steroids?
Guess making that admission would be against the unwritten rules being a total fucking douche.
Anyway, shove your unwritten rules up your ass, St. Louis.
And while you’re at it, give the Rams back to Los Angeles. You don’t deserve a football team.
