St. Louis (KSDK) - A group of Cardinals fans are keeping the neighbors awake tonight by cheering from their front lawn.

What a way to watch the Cardinal victory. They've got a fire pit and a giant view of all the action, but setting this up wasn't easy.

Thanks to some technical difficulties this night actually started out a little old-fashioned, with people huddled around the radio. But then they sorted it all out, graduating to the big league with the big screen, 120 inches to be exact.

Bill Hulsey had it inflated in his front yard for all his friends to watch, and what a game it was, with a battle of the home runs keeping it suspenseful. This group says such a big game required a big celebration.

Despite the glitches early on, it was totally worth it.

"This has been a challenging night but just like a true Cardinals fan you stick with it, you see it through, you make it happen and here we are," said Steve Murphy with Sound of St. Louis.

"We thought you know you've got to do something big for this one because the Cardinals are going to win it here tonight, you know we've got to celebrate. We've got to do it right. So we go big or we go home," said homeowner Bill Hulsey.

The big screen from Sound of St. Louis is already booked for a World Series party next weekend.
