There's nothing more American than watching a ballgame while enjoying a beer and brat. And the Cardinals just so happen to start a four-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on America's birthday. USA! USA! The fun starts at 1:15 p.m. Monday, 7:09 Tuesday, 7:15 p.m. Wednesday and 12:45 Thursday (July 4 to 7) at Busch Stadium (Broadway and Poplar Street; www.stlcardinals.com). The Monday game includes a throwback pillbox cap giveaway inspired by the one the Cards wore during the '76 season. Wednesday's big giveaway is a John Goodman bobblehead (he's dressed as Walter Sobchak from The Big Lebowski), with Goodman also making an appearance at the game. Tickets are $5 to $295.90.
