Farewell to a Cookie

The end of a Cookie Cutter...not as quick as the Kingdome, but still...

I'm not terribly sad to see Busch Stadium II go the way of all Cookie Cutter Stadiums. It had terribly sight lines, and there were signs of its age. It was a multi-purpose stadium better suited to football. Never mind the nice facelift current Cardinal ownership gave the place, it was a stadium dressed up in Baseball Glad Rags.

What made Busch special were the fans. Those same fans will be at the new Busch Stadium III, so it will be a special place all it's own. The fans and the players are what make any ballpark/stadium special, what give it character. Busch Stadium is dead. Long Live Busch Stadium!
