Take Minions Out To The Ballgame!

Tonight is Game 7 of the 2011 World Series, and St. Louis is caught up in a tidal wave of Cardinals fever. Tickets for the Big Game are going for $475 for standing room only to as high as $20,000 for a seat in the dugout box. For those who can't get tickets (or just can't afford those prices!), our local Wehrenberg Theater chain is showing the game on their big high-definition screens--and the admission there is FREE (yep, you read that right!).

Tonight, we're pulling out all the stops to win our 11th Series in 2011. Our longtime Cardinals mascot Fredbird has called for reinforcements. There's Allen Craig's pet turtle, Torty....

And, of course, the wild and wily Rally Squirrel, who's been a PR star ever since he made his first dash across the field during the National League playoffs. He's great at distracting opposing teams' pitchers....

But what most baseball fans don't know is that the the Triple Threat mascots have called in some outside help from Hollywood to make sure the Cardiac Cardinals win tonight....

"Do you think they'll be able to taste the laxatives in the water?"

"Stuart, you hollow out the Rangers' bats. What? Of course all of them, you idiot!"

"I don't think this is going to work!"

"Kenny, you're in charge of pouring maple syrup in their gloves...."

"And Dave, be sure you put enough itching powder in all their athletic supporters. No, athletic supporters are NOT those people sitting in the stands!"

"Hey, who was responsible for THAT???"

"Yeowwwww...who left maple syrup on the floor?"

It looks to be a verrrrry interesting game.....

  3. Ha ha! That's too cute. I love the little guys from Despicable Me, especially when that one goes "Whaaaaa..."

  4. I'm rooting for the minions....oh wait...they're not playing??? Too would make the game that much better if they were playing instead of the players.

  5. Looks like everybody's rooting for the Minions....

  6. Very funny! I love your line "Of course all of them you idiot!"

    It was an incredible game last night.

  8. I'd like to see them win. It's the kind of stuff you never forget. That, and the squirrel.

  9. What an amazing finish last night. After a tremendous Game Six, it was icing on the cake.
