ST. LOUIS — The statue of St. Louis legend Stan Musial proved a popular photo opportunity Saturday, drawing a sea of red-clad Cardinals fans, three wedding parties, and even a handful of Red Sox loyalists before Game 3 of the World Series at Busch Stadium.

Minutes after getting married, bride Stephanie King waited at the intersection of Spruce Street and Stan Musial Drive for a moment in front of the statue. Members of the bridal party draped Cardinals jerseys over their dresses.
“I’m the bigger Cardinals fan,” said King, knocking back a beer and comparing herself to new husband Jefferey. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
