Hello VEB. I used to go by MilCardFan and post here quite often. But then I found The Daily Norseman, and well, my Minnesota roots tugged me back there, and I became a main writer there, and then later over at Off Tackle Empire and then SB Nation Minnesota.
I had a vested interest in the last post season 1-0 game, which happened to be game 7 of the 1991 World Series. You remember, the one where Jack Morris and the Minnesota Twins beat the Atlanta Braves 1-0 in 10 innings. I grew up a Twins fan, and lived and died on every pitch in that series.
I gravitated towards the Cardinals in 2004, when I moved to St. Louis, and I'm just ecstatic that I had a vested, emotional interest in the first 1-0 post season gem since Black Jack Morris' gem back in 1991, when I was a younger man in a place far way from home. I've lived and died on every pitch since mid-August, and this has been the most thrilling post season since 1991 for me...even better than 2006 in some respects.
I love this team.
