Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Happy Father’s Day – Do as I say

“Do as I say, not as I do.”

How many times were we told that as youngsters by our parents and specifically our fathers?

I am doing it again today as I sit in the Busch Stadium press box working instead of enjoying this holiday at home.

Here is hoping all of you celebrate this day with those closest to you, whether you are a father, son, daughter or simply played a part of those roles at some point in your life.

I can’t be with my three sons today and like many men, am not great with sentiment. Here is the message I sent them as I retired last night.

Guys, I did not make a good decision to be away for Father’s Day, but I want you to know that the most important part of the day is the pride I have in each of you. I look forward to seeing you next week.


Happy Father’s Day to all!
