NLCS Fan Spotlight: Cards/Rams Guy
There is a mighty doubleheader in St. Louis on Sunday, with many fans here at Busch Stadium coming over from the Edward Jones Dome, where the Rams took the lead in the final two minutes on Torry Holt’s incredible TD catch — only to lose by two on a Seahawks 54-yard field goal as time expired. Legions of fans wore red under their Rams regalia during that game and then uncovered it on their way here, or else put red over their NFL attire on the way. Continuing our regular NLCS blog feature, here is a Q&A with one of those people: Scott Meyers, 16, of Chesterfield, Mo.
MLB.com: Tell us about the little football game here in town today.
Cards/Rams Guy: It was pretty exciting, but we couldn’t stop them at the end like we should have. I was hoping we would have blitzed on the last drive. I thought the TD was great for Torry, but we got on the board with too much time left.
MLB.com: What do you think of the NLCS so far?
Cards/Rams Guy: I’m thinking definitely a Cards win tonight, and maybe Albert Pujols goes deep. Actually, I’m a little surprised. I thought we’d be down 2-0 coming back from Shea. Once we got that split, things definitely have turned in our favor.
MLB.com: Can you describe the scene of so many Cardinals fans doing the NFL/MLB thing today, and what kind of day this is in St. Louis sports?
Cards/Rams Guy: Immediately after the game, in my section (149), a lot of fans started chanting, "Let’s Go Cardinals!" That was awesome.
