    Ill. teen sues Cardinals over message

    ST. LOUIS -- A teenager from Illinois is suing the Cardinals, claiming she was ostracized at school after a crude comment about her was shown at the ballpark last year.

    The message appeared on a scoreboard that allows fans to display custom remarks via their cell phones. According to the lawsuit, she was at a game with her high school in May 2006 when a female classmate sent the offending message.

    It claimed the plaintiff “has an STD! Eww!”

    The girl, then 16, is identified only by her initials — A.B.

    The suit, filed Wednesday in St. Louis Circuit Court, claims that the “shame and humiliation” she suffered forced her to stay out of school, take her final exams in a separate office, and seek psychological counseling.

    Almost all of her friends were at the game, the suit says, and afterwards “boys that she was friends with would no longer associate” with her.

    I thought he was referring to Amanda Beard.

    It was a group of high schoolers at a game. I could imagine the boys who did it laughing themselves silly over it. I'd laff it I was at the game.

    A female classmate is the one who sent it.
  7. I hope she ends up owning the Cardinals.

    I have no doubt a 17-year-old girl could beat the Cardinals.

    How can that even make it up on the board? Working on the assumption, the Cardinals are smart emough to have someone screening these messages before they display, apparently, the moran in charge that night didn't understand what the term STD meant.

    She will win. And she should.

    Oh, and my first thought on the who... August Busch.
