“I think it’s pretty awesome, I love the whole St. Louis Camaraderie. Cardinal Nation!”




“I think it’s good for the city. It is nice to see a Christian manager take the team to the NLCS during his first two years as the manager.”

MIKE NOLAN, assistant athletic trainer


“I’m sick of the Cardinals winning. I’m sick of hearing people talk about it. … Really though in the last 10 years, what other team in the last decade has done this? I used to like the Cardinals. It used to be exciting to see my friends happy. I’m just a cantankerous old man.”

“I am happy because other people are happy about it — my happiness is not affected either way.”

“I look forward to seeing them progress and hope they do well, but I honestly don’t follow them enough to be considered a true fan.”

“Our family loves going home to watch the Cardinals games together. We feel like we know all the players. I love the postseason and I’m very drawn to all the personalities, to all of the players.”

“I don’t follow many sports. If I had to pick one, baseball would be my favorite sport. I haven’t seen a single game this year, but I love to hear about when they win because this is my city.”
