The Look of Things To Come

I suppose you all know by now that InBev has purchased Anheuser-Busch. As part of that deal, a few more things will change.

First, since they now own the rights to the stadium that the St. Louis Cardinals play in, they are changing the name. Here's the new logo:
That's not so bad... I guess... Then came this press release:
7/14/08 ( Brussels ) Anheuser-Busch has accepted a $52 billion takeover bid from Belgium-based InBev NV to create the world’s largest beer maker and end a month-long standoff. While pitching the deal in recent weeks, InBev chief executive Carlos Brito has said that he is "committed to the city of St. Louis " and that changes here would be minimal. One that Brito said will show up shortly after this weeks Major League Baseball All-Star event in New York will be a minor one in the long standing uniforms worn by the St. Louis Cardinal Baseball team.

First-baseman Albert Pujols, one of the first to try the new outfits said “while it may take a little time for Cardinal fans to fall in line behind the change, I personally like them a lot. They’ll really be enjoyable during those hot, muggy days in late July and August. I expect all of the fans will be wearing them before the end of the season!”

Sporting goods stores around the St. Louis area report brisk sales of the new Cardinal memorabilia.
Want to see the new uniform?


Feel free to blame my sister. She sent it to me.
