The "infamous" Rally Squirrel

In our house we bleed Cardinal red...St. Louis Cardinal red to be exact. For those of you who aren't baseball fans, or STL fans, or have just been simply living under a rock...our beloved Cardinals are playing in the National League Championship Series. Against some crazy odds, our team found their way into the Wild Card spot and are now only 2 wins away from heading to te World Series! Yippee!


With such an improbable run, fans have been looking for almost any superstition to "rally" around...and this year...it's the Rally Squirrel. Here's the video clip to illustrate just why the squirrel has become such an important secondary mascot to us Cardinal Fans!



Apparently the grounds' crew captured at least 4 of these little guys from inside the ballpark...guess those squirrels love the peanuts just as much as we do!


It's been a bit of a phenomenon as the stadium is selling small stuffed rally squirrels at the sounvenir stands, passing out Rally Squirrel towels to the fans in attendance, and one report says that the Rally Squirrel now has his own Twitter account under the name of Busch Squirrel. As you can see it's gotten a little bit crazy!

A local screenprinting business has even been selling Rally Squirrel t-shirts. You better believe yours truly went and picked up 2 shirts last night...one for Hubby & one for my dad!


You can order your's here...ha!


We'll be cheering on our beloved Cardinals along with my parent's tonight...we can only hope that this crazy streak continues...all thanks to a fuzzy little rodent who just happened to be in the right place at the right time! And hopefully my weekend recap on Monday will include some celebration from winning the next two games and heading on to the World Series...Go Cards!
