We'd like to thank Joe Sports Fan for this photo of a true Cardinals superfan; this is exactly what we're wearing to the game tomorrow.
It's Game 3 tonight, the first World Series game at the new Busch Stadium, and it's a definitive series-turner. If the Cardinals can win behind Chris Carpenter, they can send The Dominant Machine That Is Jeff Suppan out for Game 4 to take a huge lead. If the Tigers win, they retake control of the series and will have to be overwhelming favorites to close the thing out, perhaps even in St. Louis.
It's Carpenter vs. Nate Robertson, and for the sake of all that is holy, please keep them the hell away from the pine tar stash.
We're not heading to St. Louis until tomorrow, so we'll be watching this in the comfort (and warmth) of our Mattoon home. We encourage everyone to chat along in the comments — look how much fun it is! — and we'll be back postgame to grouse, revel or just pontificate. Enjoy, and we don't just mean the mute button.
