Recently, at a Cubs-Cards game at Wrigley Field, I was talking with my dad about Cardinals fans, and how we hate them waaaaayyyy more than White Sox fans. 

There are 2 things I know about White Sox fans that I can get on board with: They live in the best city in the world (Chicago), and they cheer for the greatest NFL team in the world (Bears).  Those 2 facts pardon them from my most aggressive wrath. 

But Cardinals fans?  What do I know about them?  Well, they live in a state that people call Missour-UH, and a city that is pretty freakin’ ghetto.  Perhaps that is why they take over Wrigley Field– to get the hell out of dodge for a weekend. 

They are also more obnoxious than White Sox fans, which must be some sort of record in obnoxiousness cuz, damn.  A “friend” of mine has a red Cardinals shirt declaring Wrigley as “The Biggest Gay Bar in the World.”  Hahaha… Wrigley Field is kind of by Boys-Town so it must be gay…  Yet Cards fans have no problem coming to games at Wrigley or swarming nearby bars afterwards.  Hmmm…

zAt a game Cubs game in St. Louis a week or so ago, a Cards fan was seen wearing a “Zambrano Mows my Lawn” t-shirt.  Classy.  Middle America (i.e. Missour-UH) at its best.  Now, I’m not going to pretend that people in Chi weren’t selling “Horry Kow” t-shirts, but that was different becaue they were meant to support Kosuke (in a horribly offensive way, yes, but we’re Cubs fans, what do we know). 

If I lived in the middle of nowhere and had to cheer for the St. Louis Cardinals, I too would relish the opportunity to come to the “big city” and watch a game in a historic park.  All I’m asking is that Cardinals fans stop acting like it’s the worst possible thing they could imagine when in actuality, it’s pretty much all they’ve got going for them.  AND, cue “World Series Champions 2006” chants…  (Hahaha, to think I thought it was White Sox fans who had the worst inferiority complex!)

    You may not believe it, but there are worse fans out there. There are those people who wear those manny wigs and dress up like him and sit in that absurdly named section mannywood…out of all the past dodger greats (admittedly new york generally steals them eventually) how does manny end up being the one with his own section?
