I didn't know Charley Steiner was a Cardinals fan. Mark McGwire must have followed him to freedom.

I was trying to come up with a guy to whom the Cardinals gave a bad contract so I could make a joke, but of course there aren't any. (Unless you're this guy.)

Tino Martinez is one, but I don't think he left on good enough terms to root for the Cardinals.

They traded for Khalil Greene's bad contract, but with only one year left.

Go figure a franchise that employed Lou Brock and Vince Coleman would attract thieves.

What is it with ballplayers and sloppy facial hair? I'm not one to want to emulate the 70's Reds and the ban on beards and mustaches, but it appears that MLB players are once again a decade or so behind the fashion curve regarding the grunge/slacker look.

I guess that rules out Brian Wilson ... unless he's being especially clever.

I truly long for the day when everyone burns every last fashion magazine, throws away all their overpriced perfumes (including colognes and aftershave lotions) and simply dresses for comfort. If players like the clean-cut look, fine, but if they want to look like they just climbed out of a dumpster, what of it?

Just wondering - does anyone get a tattoo while sober?

And can we start the bidding for exposed skin on which to put some sponsor's ink?

Just go to a college.

I worked at a call center for a major cellular service provider for a year, and that's how people dressed there. There was a dress code, but the emphasis was more on covering oneself up than on actually wearing attractive clothing. It looked like most of my colleagues were going camping, and smelled similar.

The polar opposite is probably Seoul, South Korea.

Thank god I no longer work or go to school in a place where everyone wears 80's jumpsuits and baggy hoodies cause their "comfortable".

Actually, I take that back. My job had me in Vegas for 6 months this year. Scary.

speaking as someone with a few tattoos, nope.

I wonder if the bank patrons got on the floor without being prompted...

How do we know he wasn't really a Giants fan trying to throw the police off the trail? I doubt he was a Cub fan because then he'd probably rather go to jail than ever yell "Go Cards".

There's a bar I like to go to and across the street is a tattoo parlor. The phrase "nothing good happens after midnight" is extremely applicable.

Because any bearded bank-robbing Giants fan couldn't possibly resist yelling "Fear the beard!" at some point during the robbery?

My girlfriend says all three of hers were planned out in advance and acquired while sober.

But then she's a lawyer and, based on the representative sample here, I'd expect her to act in a logical rational manner.

I think comfort is overrated and overplayed. People shouldn't go walking around in public looking like slobs and bums.

Where was this man at the time of the incident?

I was definitely sober when I got my 3. (Not only that, but I was in my late 30s. Midlife crisis, I suppose, but at least a whole lot cheaper than buying a sports car.) The last 2 I got at the same time, one on each arm, which meant a fair amount of pain then & immediately afterward, so detectives could be forgiven for believing that alcohol was involved.

I hear that the "House of David" team has been reformed and will challenge the World Series winner to a game. The losers have to shave.
