Fans Bleed Red, Stores See Green
After a World Series Championship, Christy Hargis bleeds Cardinal red.
"Don't talk during the game!"
But mid-Missouri sports stores see a lot more green.
"It's been great, our numbers have been very big. Much bigger than last year in October, so I'm very pleased with them," said MC Sports manager Wayne Townley.
The new championship shirt was one of the hottest selling items even hours from St. Louis.
"For this being St. Louis' 10th time winning the World Series, it makes it very big," he added.
But others wanted to show their happiness on their head.
"I just wanted to make sure I could get a hat before they were all gone," said Hargis.
Missouri's winning season also has Tigers pulling out their plastic.
"I'm a Missouri fan of all Missouri sports basically. And I just like to support them," said Tiger football fan Larry Fritz.
While stores are enjoying increased sales by 32%, other numbers have customers saying "enough."
Even so it still won't stop the most diehard shoppers from satisfying their Cardinal craze.
