NEW YORK CITY--Even as I sit here typing this, I am still in disbelief that the Cardinals made it to the National League Championship Series. I thought that Game 6 of last year's World Series would forever be the most insane game that I ever watched, but this year's NLDS Game 5 was pretty crazy in its own right. Regardless, the Cardinals are in the NLCS, and that means that there is a chance that I will be watching games 1 and 2 of the World Series IN ST. LOUIS! Fingers crossed everybody...

 

Just before the Cardinals game on Friday, I got to meet one of my heroes and favorite players of all time: David Eckstein. He was the MVP of the 2006 World Series when the Cardinals beat the Detroit Tigers in five games. I got to hang out with him for quite some time, and let's just say that his stories were great!

 

Here are the other people that I was able to meet this week:

-Kevin James (actor)

-Dale Murphy (legendary Atlanta Brave)

-Jerry Springer (TV host)

-Josh Charles (actor)

-Dave Stewart (retired Oakland Athletic)

 

We are just a little over a week away from the World Series, and we are on the cusp of MLB picking an overall winner of this year's Fan Cave. As I have mentioned, I am trying to just push two main things down the stretch:

1. Voting. It's unlimited

2. Twitter following: @KyleOKC

 

If you could, please do everything that you can to get that info out to your friends, family, and coworkers. Thanks so much for that.

 

Feel free to check out the blogs that I did this week:

-NLCS Preview: St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants

-Chris Carpenter: Best Active Big-Game Pitcher

-Best Big-Game Pitchers of All Time

-Best Catches of the 2012 MLB Postseason

-Year of the Rookie

-Carlos Beltran: Man on a Mission

 

Be on the lookout for another video this week. Also if you have any ideas for content that I could do in the next week, feel free to share!
