Football Cardinals owner Bill Bidwill died Wednesday at the age of 88. The bowtie-wearing Bidwill headed a family operation that dated to 1932, when his father Charles purchased the Chicago Cardinals, reportedly for $50,000.

On Dec. 13, 1987, the Big Red played their last game in St. Louis before moving the franchise to Arizona. They won that game against the New York Giants before a crowd of fewer than 30,000 fans. In 28 seasons, they never hosted - or won - a playoff game. They went through periods of such mediocrity that some suggested the team slogan be "for God, for country, four nine and one." But they did have magic moments. And although the NFL can take our teams away, they can't steal these memories.
