Share Your Cardinals World Series Memory And Win

After honoring the 2011 World Series championship team during last weekend’s St. Louis Cardinals games, maybe you’re ready to relive that thrilling ride once again.

We can help. We have three copies of the official World Series film DVD to give away.

The film, from Major League Baseball Productions, features St. Louis native and narrator Jon Hamm of Mad Men delivering the Redbirds championship run, from first pitch to last in a documentary format.

Providing comprehensive highlights, exclusive access and interviews plus footage and sounds captured by MLB cameras and microphones throughout the World Series, this DVD is a perfect way to relive October’s epic battle against the Texas Rangers.

Want a taste of what it’s like? Click here for a preview.

But wait, as the saying goes — there’s more! The film is part of a two-disc set that also includes the complete NLDS Game Five vs. the Phillies, that amazing 1-0 pitcher’s duel between Chris Carpenter and Roy Halladay that propelled the Cardinals to the NLCS and, ultimately, the World Series. (If you’re like me, you miss seeing Carp pitching these days — so why not take a look at perhaps the greatest game of his career so far?)

Additional extras include behind-the-scenes interviews and bonus programming including a “This Week in Baseball” episode with Lance Berkman, Tony La Russa on “Prime 9,” the final out and celebration from Game Five of the NLDS, the final out and celebration from Game Six of the NLCS, Albert’s three homers in World Series Game Three, David Freese’s game-tying triple in Game Six of the World Series, Lance Berkman’s game-tying 10th inning single from that same game, Freese’s walk-off homer, the Game Six postgame press conference with LB and Freeser, the Freese game-tying double from Game Seven, the World Series final out and celebration, and the World Series parade.

Trust me, the whole set is awesome — and you need to have it if you don’t already.

And thanks to to A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions, you could win one of three DVD we are giving away.

Here’s how to win: Just share your favorite non-2011 Cardinals World Series memory. While we loved last year, we want to hear what else comes to mind when you think back on the Cardinals other championships — whether it’s from 2006, 1982, 1967, 1964 or even before that. (I’m guessing we won’t have anyone with a favorite memory from the first championship in 1926, but you never know.)

Comment below with your memory before this Sunday, April 22, at 6 p.m. Central Time. We’ll choose three winners at that time. And that’s it! Take a trip back down your World Series memory lane and share your story now.

Once again, thank you to A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions for the DVD sets. If you don’t win, you can purchase one of the sets here. Trust me — the entire set is something you’ll love watching over and over.

  1. The night the Cardinals won the 2006 World Series, my roommates found me passed out on the living room floor.

    I was going to college in Milwaukee, so there weren’t many Cardinal fans around to hang out with. Fortunately a friend was turning 21 at midnight, so I went out to some campus bars with a group. This being Milwaukee, they weren’t serving Budweiser products so I drank High Life all night. To this day, High Life tastes like victory to me. [Sidebar: “Which made this year’s playoffs even better,” he said vindictively]

    I came home after bar close and decided to wait up for my roommate to get home from his late night campus bus service job. To keep my mind occupied, I was reading The Onion on the floor. Within minutes I fell asleep face first on the paper, still grinning like an idiot. I probably woke up with an imprint of “Kenny Rogers Denies Cheatin’ During World Series” on my face.

  3. I’ve only been alive long enough to see the Cards win two WS Championships, 2006 & 2011. As you can imagine, 2011 is more fresh in my mind, but I still remember 2006. When we won, my baby nephew was over & sleeping so I couldn’t scream like I really wanted to.

    I think 2011 meant a little more to me than 2006 even though both were equally amazing. To say the odds were stacked against the Cardinals would be an understatement. No one thought we’d win in every single series of the post season. I have to admit that I even had my doubts, but I never stopped believing.

    The 2011 playoffs were magical, in every sense of the word. From the “Happy Flight” mantra to the Rally Squirrel, I will never forget any part of it. The moment that was probably my favorite was David Freese’s home run in Game 6. I know that’s probably the same for most Cards fans, but it was truly an amazing moment. I will swear to my dying day that I blacked out for a few seconds after falling to the floor. The rest, as they say, is history.

    Another moment I enjoyed was getting the opportunity to go to the 2011 WS Parade. I’m really happy I was able to take part in the WS in some way & I will never forget it.

  5. I was with my son and grandson at their house for game 7. Three generations in the same room witnessing the Cardinals winning the World Series. 2011 was a great year for Cardinal and Packer fans. World Series and Super Bowl in the same year.

  7. Bit of a combination of NLCS/WS memory –

    It was game 7 of the 2006 NLCS between our Redbirds and the Mets. I was watching the game with a couple of foreign friends of mine and trying to explain some of the finer points of the game until the tension of the late innings ended the lesson. Also watching the game with us was my girlfriend. At that point we had only been seeing each other for several months. As she was a KC native, playoff baseball, and the sport largely as a whole, was a novelty to her. Still, she acquitted herself well by choosing to watch the game with me, and being supportive of the Cardinals throughout…

    …that was, of course, until Carlos “the Cardinal Killer” Beltran came to bat with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Like every Cardinals fan, I HATED Carlos Beltran – my girlfriend however, suddenly resembled an informed baseball fan, recognizing him from his days in Kansas City as a Royal, and said something that was at best sympathetic, and at worst supportive of Beltran…

    I was shocked, I was tense (After all, just ONE OUT AWAY from the World Series!), and turned to her, looked her in the eye, and said, “If he gets a hit, this relationship is over.”

    She laughed, elbowing me, shrugging off my comment. I responded, “No. If HE gets a hit, this relationship is over.”

    She got real quiet, and remained so for the next couple of minutes.

    Then, the most beautiful outcome possible happened – Waino struck him out with that gorgeous curvebal – Cardinals to the World Series.

    I put my arm around her, smiled, and said “Babe, this relationship’s got potential!” She smiled, still a bit in shock over my (bluff of an) ultimatum.

    I can happily say that we’re still together, and she’ll be getting a CARDINALS Beltran shirt before too long.
