35 yrs old, high school teacher, life-long St. Louisan (NoCo by way of South Side), Cards fan since I was a 6 year old watching my parents cry after game 7 in '85, still have a special spot in my heart for the overlooked 1987 Cardinal team, never want to go back to the times of 1994-1995 in Cardinal Nation. Raising my 1 year old son to have daddy's baseball sickness.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB St. Louis Cardinals
  • NCAAB Saint Louis Billikens
  • NHL St. Louis Blues
