VIDEO: David Freese on Ellen DeGeneres Show caps a great story

by on November 2, 2011 · 8 comments

Folks seemed to appreciate having the Letterman and Leno clips here yesterday, I figured I’d put up the video of David Freese making the rounds, this time appearing with Ellen DeGeneres.

Turns out, his visit there was part of a larger story that’s been going on between Ellen and some local Cardinals fans. (I’m admittedly not an Ellen watcher, am I the only one who’s missed this whole thing?)

Sarah Ruffatto had mailed DeGeneres asking her to call 101 ESPN as part of their recent contest to have a celebrity call in to win World Series tickets.

So Ellen was too late to win the 101 contest, prompting her to send Sarah and her boyfriend to the game on her own, with what I can only assume were much better tickets than the radio contest was offering:

So, VIP access to Game Six, get engaged, ho hum. Which part do you think leads the story they tell friends and family?

Finally, Ellen had the couple on the show and surprised them with Freese’s appearance, World Series MVP trophy in tow.

Cool story. But when it comes to the 2011 Cardinals these days, aren’t they all?

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
