The Cardinals may have suffered a depressing Opening Day loss yesterday, but that's not gonna kill our spirit! (And neither will stupid $10 parking tickets!)

To cure your blues, Daily RFT's has photos of the craziest, most wonderful hats, costumes, props, face-paint designs and more, courtesy of the die-hard Cardinals fans at Busch Stadium yesterday.

We're guessing the upset yesterday won't lessen the unconditional love for these guys. Check out our favorite photos below.
