"MLB Stickball" for XBox Live hit stores on Wednesday morning. The game features back alleys, yards, and other common environments for a pick-up game of stick ball in cities across America.
Even though this game is essentially a bunch of silly cartoons running around, we were sold because it's one step closer to wiffle ball on a gaming console...and that's fun for the whole family.
Heck, as you'll notice from the graphic below, you can even play a game of stick ball in our hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.
Assholes. A barn, a tractor, some sort of lofted chicken fort, and some storage bin that looks like a penis. Home sweet home. With the Gateway Arch in plain site over the horizon, there are two options here:
1.) The shot was taken East of the Mississippi River, which would place the actual location in Illinois. Maybe they meant "East St. Louis", even though there aren't many farms in East St. Louis, and if there are, their tractors undoubtedly are chromed out beyond belief.
2.) The shot was taken in downtown St. Louis. Even Matt Vasgersian - who called St. Louis a "cowtown" during the 2006 World Series - knows that there's no corn fields in downtown St. Louis.
Those damn sons of bitches at Gaia Industries did us wrong.
