If I live to be 100 years old, let alone 101, I hope I'm half as awesome as Rosemary Depler. The (really, really) longtime St. Louis Cardinals fan celebrated her birthday on Friday night by throwing out the first pitch at Busch Stadium.

While she couldn't toss it all the way from the mound, her underhanded throw demonstrated classic form. Depler, notes For The Win, is only 13 years younger than the team itself, and she has been alive to see each of the Cards' 11 World Series titles so far.
