Paul Rudd wants you to party at his mom's house.
For the first time since 1985, the Kansas City Royals are headed to the World Series. That means it's time to party, and you're invited -- to Paul Rudd's kegger.

Rudd, the impishly handsome movie star originally from Overland Park, joked that he wanted to party at his mother's home during a post-game interview with KMBC-TV.

"I'm going to be partying at my mom's house," Rudd tells Johnny Kane of KMBC. Kane adeptly asks just who's invited, which is when Rudd opens the party up to all KC fans.

"Hey, party at my mom's, man!" Rudd says. "She's out of town. I've got a keg. It's going to be sweet. Five-dollar cover!"

The St. Louis Cardinals Are America's Most Hateable Playoff Team: WSJ

How can you hate these fans, America? Oh, right, because the St. Louis Cardinals can't stop winning.
Move over, New York Yankees. We'll take it from here.

The St. Louis Cardinals is the most hateable team in the Major League Baseball post-season, according to a sort-of-scientific report from the Wall Street Journal.

What makes a team hateable? Beards, mostly. Also teams with swollen payrolls, juicing players and haughty fan bases.

On a scale that assigns points for every hateable trait (the more points, the more hated you are), St. Louis earned an impressive 12.7 points, especially thanks to the team's winning past and the ill-earned "best fans in baseball" moniker. Winning four league titles in ten years really propelled St. Louis above any other team, including second-place winners the LA Dodgers, who scored a 10.8.

Dustin Glastetter wasn't allowed at the Cardinals game with his face looking like this.
Dustin Glastetter is a die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan with a dirty little secret: he also loves the Boston Red Sox.

A life-long resident of Missouri, Glastetter, 32, goes to more than 25 Cardinals games a year and can rattle off the team's stats and history with ease. He's not a rich guy, but he'll happily cough up the big bucks for a seat in the all-inclusive green seats near home plate just to be as close to the action as possible.

"The Cardinals are my No. 1 team -- unless it's Boston," he tells Daily RFT. His admiration for the franchise turned into full-fledged fandom when Boston drafted two of his buddies. "When they're in town, I'm a Red Sox fan."

Tony La Russa is immortal, suckers!

What do you give to a man who has everything? Immortality.

That's what former Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is experiencing now that he's been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Joined by pitcher Greg Maddux, pitcher Tom Glavine, first baseman/DH Frank Thomas, manager Bobby Cox and manager Joe Torre, La Russa was inducted into the Hall of Fame on July 27 after being unanimously voted in by the membership committee back in December.

In the Sunday story "From Behind the Plate, a Dutiful Master Orchestrates the Cardinals," teammates and opponents alike marvel at the semi-psychic wonder that is, as St. Louis affectionately knows him, "Yadi."

Jack Clark.
The months-long legal battle between two former Cardinal greats is over.

After claiming on-air in August that he knew "for a fact" that Albert Pujols was a "juicer," former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark now says he "misspoke."

"I have no knowledge whatsoever that Mr. Pujols has ever used illegal or banned PEDs," Clark said in a public retraction Monday night. His statement goes on to describe his on-air comments were the result of a "heated discussion on air."

"I sincerely apologize," he concluded.
