How does following the Cardinals help my fitness level? I think family members who watch me watching games know that I move up and down and side to side with every pitch and hit, trying to get just the right English on the ball. They also know I exercise my lungs fully. When young David Freese won Game Six of the 2011 World Series with late-inning long balls, my next-door family heard my yelling all the way over there. They know how fanatic I am. On my 11-11-11 birthday, they had a big Cardinal-themed party featuring a Redbird-decorated cake and celebrating not just my 70th birthday but the Cards' 11th World Series Championship.
