My Cardinals themed granny panties. Look for those on the Jumbotron."

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.
