We Know How It Feels

Letter to the Editor:

On behalf of the St. Louis Browns fanclub, we would like to extend our condolences to KTRS for losing the Cardinals. We understand the pain of losing a baseball team. However, we can offer KTRS the exclusive broadcast rights to the Browns. Granted, the Browns do not exist anymore. But love of the Ol' Brownies is still very much alive in the hearts of their fans and the forty living players, many of whom journey to St. Louis for an annual reunion dinner.

The Browns had a midget batter, a one-armed outfielder, and won an American League pennant in the middle of WW2, when all the teams were "equalized". And they had really cool colors. KTRS could do worse than airing a "Voice of the Browns" promo on occasion. And if the major leagues ever come to their senses and decide that a St. Louisan's true rival team is the Yankees and not the Cubs, and resurrects an AL team in St. Louis, we will give KTRS first dibs.
