Hey Cardinals DJ, I know our home town team likes to show the fans a good time. And I know that you like to raise money for a good cause...
So I pledge that I will write a $100 check (that's a lot of money for me, I'm a lowly bleacher fan) to Cardinals Care if you will play a request for me.
At the end of the first inning of the Friday night game against our new enemy the Cincinnati Reds, I would like to hear the song "Been Caught Stealing" by Jane's Addiction in it's entirety.
I don't think it's really much to ask. You play songs during the commercial break between innings. So, just play a different tune, that's all I'm asking...

If you're worried about upsetting the opposition, Reds pitcher Mike Leake -- the guy who made headlines for stealing some cheap tee shirts from Macy's earlier this week -- didn't seem too bothered when he showed up for a home game on Thursday and the Cincinnati stands were filled with signs poking fun at the situation.
Besides, it's a whole lot classier than anything that comes out of Brandon Phillips' mouth. Plus, don't forget, when the Redbirds stood up to the Redlegs for their obnoxious ways last summer in Cincinnati, I think it's fair to say that the Reds folded like the very tee shirts Leake is accused of pilfering.
Please... Think about it.
