When I was in high school, straight A students got free Cardinals tickets. I was a pretty good student and thus got quite a few opportunities to watch the Cardinals play in Busch Stadium. But it was funny, every time I would go to the game, I would hear someone yelling out my name: "Jeana!" "Jeana!" I was always looking around. After a game or two, I realized it was the man selling peanuts, yelling out, "Peanuts!" "Peanuts!"
I was telling this to my sister Betsy years later when we were adults and she said the same thing happened to her. She'd be searching the stands for whoever it was yelling, "Betsy!" "Betsy!" It was the Pepsi man, yelling out, "Pepsi!" Pepsi!"
