ST. LOUIS -- The city of St. Louis has experienced many Cardinals runs to the World Series, but none more unlikely than this one. Amidst the rain, I got the chance to walk around and take some pictures that illustrate the excitement out here. Despite the bad weather, the streets were already teeming with Cardinals fans -- all decked out nearly from head to toe in Cards' garb. There's certainly a city-wide excitement, as one would expect.
