Now, you have the chance, too!
Two lucky winners and their guests will join Ray Mileur, Brian Walton, Bleacherbum593 and the rest of the Birdhouse staff in a Busch Stadium Deluxe Suite for the Wednesday, September 28 7:10 PM game as the St. Louis Cardinals face the Houston Astros.
That's right! What could be a better way to say good-bye to the old Busch Stadium than to see this red-hot NL Central match-up from a cool luxury box during the final week of the 2005 regular season?
Even better, there are two ways to win.
Subscriber contest. One pair of tickets will be awarded to the winner of a drawing held on August 30. To qualify, you must be a regular paid (not on free trial) premium subscriber to www.thestlcardinals.com as of August 30. This winner will also receive hotel accommodations for Wednesday, September 28 at the Four Star Renaissance Grand St. Louis hotel.
Message Board contest (running from August 1 through August 30). There are even more ways to win the second pair of tickets and it is all entirely FREE! This winner will be selected in a drawing where the number of entries are based on a points system as follows:
1. Cody's Corner - one entry for a question received. Two entries for every question used in the column during August. Only one entry (or two if selected) per person.
2. Busch Stadium II Memories - one entry for a post on this special thread from August 1 through August 30. Only one post per member will be used as contest entry.
3. Gas House Gang's Bar and Grill Board - one entry for every member who posts there during the contest period. One entry per member.
4. One entry per every registered message board member as of August 30th.
Both winners will be announced at www.thestlcardinals.com on September 1. If winner is unable to personally use the tickets, they will be awarded to the runner-up. Arrangements will be made to transfer tickets at the stadium on game day.

Good luck to all. By the way, if you win, will you tell us if you meet Joe Mammy there? No one around here is sure whether or not he actually exists!
