A vote for Cards is a vote for America

Posted by Darren Urban on October 29, 2012 – 9:16 am

OK, maybe not quite all of America, but hey, in the spirit of the election season and in the spirit of getting some Cardinals to the Pro Bowl, it’s time to vote. You can go here to vote, but if you are truly a concerned citizen, you can do so much more.

For instance, you can sport one of the election buttons seen below. Fans can get them at tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game outside Gate 2 at the brand-new Cardinals #FanVan — and this thing is impressive in its own right — or inside the stadium at season-ticket tables. Fair warning: Supplies are limited. More will be available in coming weeks at various Cardinals events and this coming Sunday at Tom’s Tavern downtown when the Cardinals are in Green Bay to play the Packers.

    I voted, for Cardinals and for America.

    Here’s to a brighter economy and a huge win against those 49ers.

    Top of the NFC West all the way!

    That’s a cool thing they are doing.

    Larry is always a given. To me, he is the best wr ever to step on a football field. Tell me if Jerry Rice would be where he is if he had 9 different QBs throwing to him before he turned 29.

    My second vote goes to DWash. This kid has elevated his game and is all over the field. He is 5th in the league in Tackles, has 6 sacks and 2 fumbles. You can’t ask for more.

    It is funny seeing the Wilson ’13 button. Woodrow Wilson took over as President of the US in 1913.

    Darren, who is your vote for Probowl (Az Cards of course) ?

    How can I get these buttons? My husband and I are long time season ticket holders. We used to live in Arizona, but my husbands job moved us to Corona CA. For the last three years we have been making the 5 hour drive to every home game we can, but we are not able to take time off work to attend the Monday night game. We will not be back in the Phoenix area until the November 25th game. (the day before my birthday) Can someone PLEASE help us get these buttons to add to our Cardinals Shrine? PLEASE!?

    John the draft guy –

    RE: Pro Bowl

    I think Fitz and DWash are fair choices.

    I may start calling Adrian “Woodrow.” You think he’d mind?

    John the draft guy,

    That is a great statement you made about Fitz. I’ve never considered that and it’s an eye opener.

    Darren,

    I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t call Adrian Wilson anything other than Mr. Wilson. He is probably the LAST dude I’d mess with on that football team haha.

    I guess Kolb & Skelton are going to have to run a grass roots campaign, with no big money buttons support.

    Darren,

    All I can say is , if you are a WR and you are coming across the middle, ADub is going to lay some wood.

    Cody Zarr,

    I’m in awe of the way Larry plays the game. I think that most fans see him as a good or maybe great player, but I dont think that most fans understand that players like Fitz dont come around but once a decade or two.

    How special was it to see Barry Sanders? I know Emmitt has the records, but Barry was one of a kind. I see it in Peyton, with his control of a game. You see it in Ray Lewis or Reggie White.

    Fitz is in that catagory. Yes, he is on a team that nationally gets no attention. And while the media pumps up Andre Johnson, who seems to be fading due to injuries or Megatron, who puts up a couple good years with the 1st over all pick as his QB, Fitz just keeps going. Never complaining when he had Max Hall, Derek Anderson or Skelton and Kolb throwing to him. He just keeps thinking of ways he can be better.

    RE: Think about this Darren,

    I didn’t bother to read past the first sentence. I’m looking forward to the game also, but, WTF. Go CARDS!
