Slideshow: Opening Day Fashion at Busch Stadium
Update: Thanks to the more than 40 of you who contributed a caption via Facebook or our comments section. You all definitely have a sense of humor and love your Cardinals. It wasn't easy, but we've chosen the two captions we liked best. And the winners are:
April Charles, who commented via Facebook: "Polyester pants from the '70s, $10; decorated Reebok walking shoes from the '90s, $35; taking Granny to the stadium to see the Cards win, PRICELESS"
Grannypants, who commented below with: "Sure, I get a lot of compliments on my crafty Cardinals tennies, but the craft class project I'm most proud of? My Cardinals themed granny panties. Look for those on the Jumbotron."

Original post follows...

Cardinals fans know a thing or two about fashion. From red blazers to cut-off jeans, you see every bit of the sartorial spectrum when visiting Busch Stadium. But what exactly is going on in the image above?

Write a caption justifying and/or critiquing the sneakers-and-slacks combo in the photo, and you could win a pair of very nice tickets (first base line, 14th row) to tonight's Cardinals game.

Leave your caption (along with a way to contact you) in the comments section below or on our Facebook page. The two most entertaining commenters will each win a pair of tickets. Check back at noon for the winners. And one more thing: You must be able to pick up the tickets at the RFT office (6358 Delmar Boulevard) by 5 p.m. today.

As this Cubs fan found out, the folks at NikeID.com had some kinks to workout in their shoe customization process.

Nice shoes!  How many detentions did it take to do all that?  Oh, you did during a one week in-school suspension?  Cool

FredBird goes to the THRIFT SHOP:  HE LOOKS INCREDIBLE!!!

or a remix of the chorus in the song "meet me in St Louis" by Judy Garland...

Meet me in St. Louis, Louis,
Meet me down by Stan,
Don't tell me the lights are shining
any place but there,
We will dance to the Blues,
With our custom Cardinals Shoes,
If you meet me, Hurry! Rush,
Meet me down at Busch.

Sure, I get a lot of compliments on my crafty Cardinals tennies, but the craft class project I'm most proud of? My Cardinals themed granny panties. Look for those on the jumbotron.

I just asked my eight year old daughter what she thought of the combo. She said cute but not the pants really because they're red. Thought it was adorable!
