    Vance Worley has understandably been skipping the Cards/Rangers game, and is instead helping Habitat for Humanity build a house in Delaware.

    “If I was taking out my frustrations I don’t think these walls would be standing,” he told WHYY’s John Mussoni. In our video, you get a quick peek at Worley’s hardhat, which he adorned with his “Vanimal” nickname.
