Apparently not everyone is a fan of this new Hardee's commercial...

Boy, am I a fan. However, a middle-aged St. Louis Cardinals fan wrote this letter to the editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch complaining about it's ‘pornographic’ nature...

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and pornography. That’s what you’ll get if you watch the St. Louis Cardinals on TV. Every fan I know has remarked on the filthy Hardee’s commercial featuring a nearly nude woman writhing in soap suds. It’s pornography, pure and simple.

A few Sundays ago I sat down with my family after church to watch the Cardinals. When this commercial came on, my 86-year-old mother, almost in tears said, “Why do they have to do this?” My 13-year-old granddaughter hid her face and my 11-year-old grandson was so embarrassed, he didn’t know where to look. My 89-year-old father — who played baseball in the St. Louis Browns organization — apologized “I’m sorry this is on my TV,” as if it were his fault.

Then it came on again, and my mom grabbed for the remote to try to turn the channel. We were all embarrassed. And then it came on again, and I got mad.

I couldn’t help but think of Stan Musial, the standard bearer of the Cardinals and a man of impeccable character. He had to be looking down from heaven with tears in his eyes.

Since then, I’ve called the offices of team owner Bill DeWitt Jr. and president Bill DeWitt III and left five messages. I have not had the courtesy of a return phone call. Unfortunately, Hardee’s money trumps fans’ concerns. Maybe thousands need to call the DeWitts. Will they listen?
