As Tim Tebow was leading the Denver Broncos to another improbable victory against the Chicago Bears yesterday, baseball’s tweeps got “Tebow Fever.” The action picked up as Tebow was driving the Broncos for their first score with a little more than two minutes left in regulation. The fever gets so hot that one tweep gave him credit for Matt Prater’s 59-yard game-tying field goal! READ THE COLUMN HERE!

Cardinal Nation is not taking the news of Albert Pujols signing with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim very well. One chain of sporting goods stores in St. Louis was giving all Pujols jerseys, shirts, etc. away for FREE yesterday. People are not happy, even though the St. Louis Cardinals completed the most improbable journey to win the 2011 World Series. Kerry Booher, who covers the Double-A Springfield (MO.) Cardinals posted the above picture on his twitter account.

Hit The Deck! Player buzz to Pujols going (almost) Hollywood

 Not surprisingly, Twitter blew up this morning after King Albert signed a monster deal with the so-called “Mystery Team” – also known as Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Fans in Cardinal Nation were optimistic when they went to bed last night after learning the Redbirds upped their bid and the newly crowned Miami Marlins were out of the Pujols Pool. Little did they know, they would lose their beloved first baseman to yet another team that has as many name changes as a Hollywood actress. Here’s early reaction from some of our favorite tweeps and a few new ones since Hit The Deck! took a little hiatus. CHECK OUT THE COLUMN HERE!

Videos: Did a Philadelphia Rally Squirrel Help the St. Louis Cardinals beat Phillies?

We all know about the rally squirrel from St. Louis (above), but ANOTHER feisty squirrel was spotted, caught and released hours before tonight’s NLDS playoff game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE. The Redbirds have come from 10 1/2 games behind on August 25 to win the Wild Card on the last day, thanks to the Phillies sweeping the Atlanta Braves. Now they knock off the heavily favored Phillies. Will the Cardinals amazing run continue against NL Central division rival Milwaukee Brewers? I’m sure St. Louisians will make sure their squirrels get tickets for the games at Busch Stadium.
