Carp and the boys will crack open the NLDS against the Dodgers tonight, and I'm sure we've all got dreams a-brewin' of that spectacular playoff run from three years back.
But, just how lucid were we all that fantastic fall? How badly did those Cuervo-drenched postgame celebrations degrade our World Series memories?
If you practiced some temperance in '06 and have viewed, multiple times, each game of that installment of the Fall Classic, you might be able to name all 25 men (plus three notable omissions) on the Cardinals' last World Series roster.
If you'd like to give it a shot, here's the quiz I made on Sporcle!: http://www.sporcle.com/games/zackkrunkly/06cardsroster.
Be warned. There could be a high frustration factor in this quiz. I took the thing immediately after I created it, and I still missed two!
Feel free to let me know if I made any factual errors. And, comment to let us all know if you're proud of your score!
EDIT: A lot of answers are posted in the comments below, so don't scroll down (unless you absolutely have to get that last name).
