"I am a Cubs fan, so naturally I'm supposed to hate the Cardinals. But watching that yesterday just made me feel bad for you guys. Besides, I've been pulling for the Card in the playoffs because I want to see interesting baseball. If the Astros end up taking on the Sox, it's gonna be one lame WS. I know a lot of Cardinals fans, and Cards fans tend to be genuinely good people and very knowledgeable baseball fans. People from the south side of Chicago however, are pretty much all @$$ holes. And Houston... How on earth do you get excited about them?!"
