We know this because we keep getting press releases about it -- not because it's news.

But just in case you're wondering, local radio host "Cornbread" is entering his second week atop a downtown St. Louis parking garage in an effort prove he's the world's "Craziest Cardinals Fan."

Reports the WIL (92.3 FM) host in today's news release (written in all caps, naturally): 

"THAT'S RIGHT...BEEN LIVING ON A ROOF FOR 9 DAYS...AND THE REASON IS TO SHOW THE CARDINALS HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO US....I WANT THEM TO SEE ME UP HERE WHEN THEY ARE BATTING AND GET THE PRIDE OF CARDINAL NATION, AND SWING A LITTLE HARDER! ... OH, AND BY THE WAY...I NEED A SHOWER!"

Cornbread reminds those attending the game tonight to look out toward center field at the parking garage in the distance where (with the aid of some powerful binoculars) he might be seen waving a big red flag.

Now, if we can just get those coordinates to the guys operating the Predator drones...
