Could you please help me locate the adjectives and adverbs in the below paragraph?
St. Louis is most often considered to be Cardinals Nation. The greatest day in St. Louis is opening day of baseball. The St. Louis Cardinals are a professional baseball team in St. Louis, Missouri. They were founded in 1882. The Cardinals have won 10 World Series championships in their career. The Cardinals were founded in the American Association in 1882 as the St. Louis Brown Stockings; they took the name from an earlier national league team. After joining the national league in 1892 they have been known as the Cardinals since 1900. The Cardinals played their first game in the in the current Busch Stadium in 2006 and were the first team besides the Yankees in 1923 to win the World Series in their first season in a new ballpark (the Yankees would repeat the feat in 2009 at the new Yankee Stadium). The Cardinals have a long standing rivalry with the Chicago Cubs as well as a newer rivalry with the Houston Astros. To some fans baseball season is the most important thing in life. The neatest thing is going to a game and seeing nothing but red all around. St. Louis is excited to have newer players added to the team this year.
