Go Crazy Folks!

Matt Kimmel is not related to Jimmy Kimmel, the late-night talk show host. But this die-hard Cardinals fan knows a thing or two about showmanship.

The college student from St. Louis (second to the left in the back row) joined a group of friends sitting in the top two rows of Busch Stadium on Friday night. Admittedly short on funds --, they are college students, after all – the group made the most of their less-than-ideal seats with face paint and a "Go Crazy Folks" sign inspired by beloved Cards broadcaster Jack Buck. They were easily among the rowdiest bunch of fans in the house.

As for Kimmel, his paint job reminded us of a certain TV character who was an ardent supporter of the New Jersey Devils.
