That's a long time between World Series titles. I was there in the last Busch Stadium, dressed for a football game, screaming myself hoarse as Bruce Sutter struck out Gorman Thomas to beat the Brewers in 1982.
The weather wasn't much better in St. Louis last night but to the delight of Cardinal Nation, the results were pretty much the same. Only this time it was a rookie closer - Adam Wainwright - striking out Brandon Inge.
Way to go, Cards.
