Switching gears to a sports story that doesn't involve scandal, Gov. Jay Nixon's office just announced that Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright will keynote the Missouri Governor's Annual Prayer Breakfast.
The event, which takes place in early January in Jefferson City, supports a program called the Governor's Student Leadership Forum on Faith and Values. The even brings together Missouri college students for "a three-day study of faith and leadership."
Wainwright endeared himself to Cardinals fans when he struck out Brandon Inge to record the final out of the 2006 World Series. He's also become a dominant starting pitcher, nearly winning the NL Cy Young Award this year.
