Cardinal Nation....

Well, one word sums up the game on Sunday, AWESOME. Upon arrival at the game, which we got there 2 hours early, the kids were so excited. Kendrix's eyes were huge and he had a million questions. He really wanted Ankiel's autograph and I had to explain that probably that would not happen, he did not understand. We waited and waited until the gates opened and the kids got a lunchbox with Ankiel on it, I really don't know who wanted it worse, me or them! They ran to the bottom of the stands in hopes of getting autographs, but it was the hottest day St. Louis had seen that year, so no autographs were given. Our seats were right above the Cardinal bullpen so the kids loved watching the pitchers. Nobody showed up in the first row seats so the kids got to sit right there. I will not bore you with the rest, but in the bottom of the 9th bases were loaded 1 out and a tie ballgame. Miles hit a walkoff grand slam! Right in the Cardinal bullpen! It was amazing!!! The kids were so excited, ok so was I!
