Post of the Week – Nov. 5 through Nov. 11

Recognizing the very best post of the week from our message board community of thousands of Cardinals fans the world over. The winner of this recognition receives a free four-week subscription to and all the other fine sites in the network.

As always, we call out the best of the best right here - the "Post of the Week" from our Cardinals message board, for the week ending Saturday, November 11.

During this week, the general focus on the board seemed to move from celebrating and reminiscing about the 2006 World Champions to worry about the impending free agent season and potential the make-up of the team destined to defend the crown.

In all honesty, I didn't see the usual depth of posts this past week. But, I found one thread particularly interesting, as it looked back – way back – into Cardinals history.

Two posts from this thread were especially noteworthy. "VonderAhe" started it off with the recognition that the long history of the franchise meant they have crowned "Champs in three centuries".

VonderAhe (read the thread if you want to know the origin of the handle) pointed out the history of World Championships should include pre-1900 teams, too. Of course, the Cardinals are a big part of that.

Regular poster "Jmodene1" added a very rich post to the discussion, with more information about the successes of these early Cardinals squads.

In recognition of a fine post and starting a very informative discussion, "VonderAhe" wins a free four-week subscription to and all the other great sites in the network.

Next week, it can be you! So, keep posting!
