World Series Baby!!!

...I am seriously the LUCKIEST girl alive! Not only has my dad taken my sis, H and I to an NLDS game AND a NLCS game BUT last Wednesday, he took us to our first ever WORLD SERIES game!!! It was Game 1 of the Cardinals vs Rangers at Busch Stadium. Thank you Prince Fielder (of the Brewers who we beat in the NLCS playoffs) for giving the National League the home field advantage by hitting a bomb during the All Star Game.

Unlike the first two games we went to, the temperatures were going to be frigid! I had on two pairs of socks, long underwear, jeans, a tshirt, longsleeve shirt, sweatshirt, jacket, stocking cap and when we sat down, I wrapped up in a fleece blanket. This girl was NOT cold! It did drizzle a bit but we hardly noticed with all the layers we had on.

We got to the game and found out we were in section 166-sweet! H and I were pretty excited, "World Series baby!!!"

This is me, my dad and my sis. Photo taken my 7 year old H which explains the angle.
Michelle Obama and Jill Biden came so security was "extra tight." Other than secret service on the roof of the stadium and you couldn't bring in outside drinks (thanks ladies for making me pay $5 for a bottled water), it wasn't tight at all. They must have left about inning 5 or 6 because the men on top of the stadium were gone by then.
We got there early enough so we ventured down to the field and H snapped this pic of me and my sis.
Probably like 100 military men and women came out and presented this HUGE flag for the National Anthem. It was pretty awesome!
Freese on second!
We won!!! H was so excited that she started crying. When we asked her why she said, "This is just SO awesome!" She's so sweet.
3-2 baby!!! Love that I caught this guy on the screen.
Let's go Cards!!! How about 11 in '11???

Looks like a great time, and glad they got a win for you.

I hope you found the $10 nacho line as well.

You've gotta love it when you get that chance to watch a game live! Hmmm... When you mentioned that there were secret service peeps there, you convinced me that security was real tight back then. Anyway, looks like you've had fun!
