Good job, Larry! Outstanding! Wonderful! Beautiful, actually!

For those over whose head this dynamite example of punning has gone:

Bob Uecker, who pronounces his name as "euchre," the same as the name of a
game of _cards_, was once a catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, a.k.a. the
"_Cards_."

Got it?
