The Shane Co. has been the jeweler to the St. Louis Cardinals for 13 years.
The Shane Co. jewelry store, in Brentwood now, and moving to Olivette in early 2013, has been the official jeweler to the St. Louis Cardinals for 13 years. The store has been in St. Louis for 15 years. Rordan Shane said in spite of Shane Co.’s relationship with the St. Louis Cardinals, he's not a Cardinals fan. “I would be lying if I didn’t say that being a Colorado boy, the Rockies are my hometown team,” he said. “That being said, I went to several Cards games last year, and several the year prior. I brought a group of 12 with me last year, all Shane Co. associates. I also attended the amazing game two of the World Series last year, and was fortunate to watch from the team box,” he said.

The organization, Urine Feces Everywhere examined every park in MLB.
As though Cardinals fans need another reason for total disdain of the Chicago Cubs, the Cubbies' Wrigley Field was recently dubbed the least sanitary stadium in all Major League Baseball. On the other hand, the Cardinals' Busch Stadium is the "Best of the Best." That's according to the website, UFE.com (Urine Feces Everywhere). The site had glowing remarks about Busch Stadium fans. "What can you say about Busch Stadium when you consider that it was the only park in our survey to get an “A” rating? One hundred percent of the women wash their hands in the restroom, and the men aren’t too shabby when it comes to restroom hygiene, either. Busch Stadium is one of the few parks that the UFE Team would feel comfortable shaking another fan’s hand…
