My "Cardinals fan wife" wants to go to the game on Friday night and take my boys... I am fairly certain I can't make it happen because of conflicts (and being 6 1/2) hours away but it seems even she is interested in seeing this one. Of course it wouldn't surprise me at all if she looked at me when the Big Red Machine took their places on the field and said some kind of smart remark about the last time the Reds being any good was when these guys played.
