Redbird Nation

Redbird Nation: "The best word I can think of to describe Rolen's homer is 'sudden.' From where I was sitting behind third base I couldn't see the ball clear the wall so I quickly shifted my gaze to Pujols to watch his body language. He was pumping his fist and trotting home but I still wasn't sure so I looked over to Rolen, recognized the head-down sprint, and just lost all control. The time between his swing and my recognition of what happened was about three seconds but, as I just described, I remember all of it like a three hour movie. I then felt, honestly, a surge of electricity that seemed to be passing through all the fans. It was absolute unbridled, sudden joy. Phenomenal."
