The World Series (sorta like the Oscars of baseball) starts tonight, bringing with it waves of pride, joy, and downright giddiness for our Andy Cohen as he gets ready to watch his beloved hometown team, the St. Louis Cardinals, takes on the Texas Rangers.
Andy told the New York Post that he's a lifelong fan and even got to throw out the first pitch at a Cardinals game in 2010, saying, "It was an incredible night; I have no hand-eye coordination and I stink at baseball, but I'm an enthusiast, not a participant." He explains, "I'm from St. Louis. We're all Cardinals fans. When you grow up in St. Louis, the Cards and Budweiser are the life blood of the city. When you go to a Cardinals game in St. Louis, when they play the Budweiser theme and the Clydesdales come out, it's almost like the National Anthem. There's something patriotic about it that I can't describe.”
Andy geeks out in the article, saying his favorite Cards players of all time are Lou Brock (who Andy actually met last week), Ozzie Smith, and Willie McGee and that his sworn enemies are the Chicago Cubs. He also shared fond memories of the '82 World Series, and said he expects a serious bout of nerves once Game One starts tonight. "I'm usually nervous and terrified during games, so I stand a lot, or I pace," he tells the Post. "Sometimes I have to leave the room." Aww! Good lucky, Andy.
