Photo of the Day: In St. Louis, the fountains shall flow with the blood of those who oppose La Russa!

Oct 3, 2011, 2:03 PM EDT

At least, that’s what I think is going on in this picture that @stl_cardsfan29 took of a fountain in downtown St. Louis:


I’m torn between saying “Go Cardinals!” and “AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!”

    Jerry Meals must have seen this picture after LaRussa came out and whined about the strike zone…it had to be on his mind when he called Utley out on that collarbone-high pitch.

      Yep, it was the umps fault the Pheelies lost.

        Yeah, that’s exactly what I said potatoman, ya nozzle.

    Has the city of St. Louis considered that their fiscal problems and degradation of their city may stem from filling their fountains with red wine?

      That color wouldn’t even work as bad Sangria. The message I’m getting from it is: “Drink our Kool-Aid…”

        No, no, the LaRussa Kool-Aid :)

    Actually, I heard that Vigo the Carpathian has taken over that city due to a lack of optimism. That’s why the fountains run red with blood.

      correction: “the fountains run red with (the) blood (of LaRussa’s enemies)”.

      also known as Vigo the Butch

    Or they’re just celebrating the first win by an NFL team in Missouri.

    I’m no color expert but that seems closer to Phillies red than to Cardinals red.

    Residents of St. Louis wouldn’t be lucky enough for that fountain to be filled with strawberry margaritas could they?

      I am on my way to find out.

    Next up, all elevators in the city will flood the floor with blood every time they open.
