world champions


After watching all seven games of the 2011 World Series, one can’t help but root for the power hitting St. Louis Cardinals, who pulled out a terrific win against a very worthy opponent. Old fans and the newly converted will get their first chance to see the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals when they come to Walt Disney World as part of the Spring Training program at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Fans of the Yankees, Mets and Phillies will also get a chance to see their team take on the Atlanta Braves at their training camp.

The Cardinals and Yankees, as well as the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies, make up the core of the Braves’ 18-game home schedule at Champion Stadium at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney. The Cardinals face the Braves on March 19. The Yankees visit twice, Saturday March 10 and Wednesday March 28, and the New York Mets come in three times, March 9 and 23 and the spring home finale April 2. And the Phillies face the Braves on April 1.

The Magic Kingdom had the sweet smell of victory yesterday as Super Bowl XLV World Champ, Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers celebrated as thousands of cheese-heads fans lined Main Street, U.S.A.. Afterward he cut a ceremonial slice of cheese and then talked with press. Here is some video and a few more photos for those of you who just can’t get enough of the Packer’s victory tour.

Just hours after his title win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rodgers was riding high atop a convertible smiling and waving to green and gold clad guests at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Flashing lights, a whirlwind of fluttering confetti, balloons and Mickey Mouse himself, accompanied the Super Bowl hero down the famous street at the Magic Kingdom.
