Hi! My name is Parker and I am a new St. Louis Cardinals blogger for Patch.
Let me tell you a little about myself.
Born in the mid 1990s, I might be the youngest blogger writing about the 2011 World Series Champion Cardinals.
My mother instilled the Cardinals tradition in me. My first memory is listening to the Cardinals play on the radio.
I am a senior in high school and getting ready to graduate. I plan to go onto junior college and study criminal justice. I will try to post on here at least once a week, but sometimes obligations do not permit me time to write.
Look for my next blog post coming soon!
But before I go, I would like to list my top five memories from the 2011 season.
No. 5: Tony LaRussa's stunt double (aka Kyle Lohse). That was downright funny.
No. 4: Lance Berkman's two homers against the Dodgers. I was working at a reverse drawing and had a pocket radio with the game on, and everyone kept staring at me, and wondering why I was cheering.
No. 3: Game 3 of the World Series. That is the last time I ever really cheered for Albert Pujols. I was at a party and I made them put on the World Series.
No. 2: Game 4 of the NLDS. RALLY SQUIRREL! Need I say more?
And Finally, No. 1!
Did you even have to wonder? Game 6 of the World Series. I was almost in tears when I saw Nelson Cruz running for that ball. Cheers when he dropped it. Then I could have woken the dead with the noise I made after Freese's walkoff shot.
Do you have a favorite moment of the Cardinals' 2011 championship run? Let us hear about it by leaving a comment below!
