It's 3:30 in the morning, and we have just returned from a night of screaming, biting, man hugs and other general insanity with 20 other Cardinals fans in the enemy territory of Manhattan. We are covered in champagne — seriously — and just about as giddy as a human being can be. The Cardinals are in the World Series. The Cardinals are in the World Series.

We'll collect ourselves, and we'll talk in about five hours. We should probably wash the bubbly out of our hair.

YYYYYESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!! [Viva El Birdos]
