St. Louis teamed up to deliver two vicious punches to the gut of the Chicago sports fan as the Blues took down the Hawks in the middle of an extremely tight division race first.

More importantly to you folks I assume, seeing as this is a Cardinals blog, is the fact that the Cardinals also defeated Chicago in the form of the Cubs on Opening Night. It was a glorious night for the St. Louis sports fanatic. Here are some of the best reactions and comments from VEB Twitter:
