St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is retiring a few days after winning his 3rd World Series title. I knew it was a possibility that he would retire at this time, especially since he gets to go out as a winner.
On Sunday, before the World Series Championship Parade in downtown St. Louis, the Cardinal players were at the Edward Jones Dome before the Rams game against the New Orleans Saints.
My husband and I were at the Rams game. And they WON their first game of this season!! YAY! Go Rams!! Here is the view from our nosebleed seats. Seriously, we were in the 3rd row from the top.
After the Rams game, my husband and I walked over towards Busch Stadium to where the Cardinals Parade would be going by on it's way to the stadium. We managed to get kinda sorta close... okay, we were about 10 people deep. There were soooo many people out there lining the streets!!! Not to mention more than 35,000 people that were INSIDE Busch Stadium for the celebration.
We still had tons of fun. The crowds were happy and excited.
