(KMOV)-- I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm exhausted. I'm experiencing baseball ecstasy. I'm spinning in a surreal world of Cardinals Postseason baseball that has me sleeping 2 or 3 hours at night.  I know I'm not the only one who's shifted their daily routine to catch every single pitch of this unbelievable run by the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cardinals offense sputtered Sunday night in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers won 4-0 and evened the 2011 World Series at 2 games each. And that ensures this wild ride will end in St. Louis. Game 6 is Wednesday at Busch Stadium. It also ensures another week of little sleep. As an anchor on Awake with News 4 from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m. every day, people always ask when I sleep. Right now, not much and I'm ecstatic about it.

I've been a die hard Cardinals fan since my days as a toddler in West County, and I can't miss a single pitch of this amazing run. So for those who are curious I am getting about ay, and surprisingly it's been working. You can tune into Awake and see if you notice a difference, but 2 to 3 hours of sleep at night and then sleeping about 3 or 4 hours during the dthe bosses haven't complained yet.

I know I'm not alone. This Cardinals team is adjusting the daily lives of just about every fan.I've heard of the game being put on a projector right in the middle of a prestigious awards ceremony. I've heard of a dad negotiating with his daughter to skip her volleyball game to watch the Cards, and I know you have your own story as well. I want to hear it.

Comment with how this quest for an 11th World Championship is changing up your daily life.
