That's a Winner!!!

...On October 28, 2011 the St. Louis Cardinals won their 11th World Series Championship. Some fun facts about the 11s:
*11th championship earned in 2011
*David Freese, World Series MVP, has 11 letters in his name
*The game lasted 3 hours and 17 minutes, add that up and get...11!
*Add up the date they won (10/28) and get...11!
*The Cards made it to game 7 by winning in game 6 in the bottom of the...11th!

What can I say? 11 is a good number!

Here's what we did and my thoughts on the World Series:
*We went to our friends house and watched the game because they didn't have a babysitter. During the 5th inning, I pulled my first ever tooth and Cody had his first ever tooth pulled! I apologized before we left since I ended up costing his mom and dad AKA the Tooth Fairy $1.
*When we won, we could see fireworks going off in the three surrounding towns!
*I got up at 6am the next morning and went to the gas station to get a paper for my dad but it hadn't been delivered yet. I headed down the street to the grocery store, got a donut and chocolate milk and sat on the bench to wait for the paper to be delivered. After 30 minutes, I headed home. At 9:30, I stopped back by the gas station and luckily, they still had some. Turns out, they didn't even get delivered until 9am!?!
*Is the world only made up of the US and Canada? I wonder this because it's the World Series but teams that compete are only in the US and Canada.
*David Freese TOTALLY reminds me of David Eckstein from the 2006 World Series.
*My friend Facebooked me to let me know that Lance Lynn reminds her of must be the hair.

Congrats to the Cardinals on your awesome, comeback season! I'm proud to be a part of Cardinal Nation!!!

I work at a newspaper and told my coworker we should use the headline "Sweet dreams are made of Freese" for the Cards story, but he didn't agree. We used something with 11 in 11 instead. Still works. :)

Congrats to your Cards. They were a great story this year.

Um not to disagree with your or anything, but there's a big difference between Eckstein and Freese: a foot. Isn't Eckstein like a foot shorter than Freese?!?! Lol. Just playing. I have no clue how tall Freese is. I just know Eckstein was tiny. You are absolutely right though! Great to be a part of Cardinal Nation!!
