    Cardinals?

    I've come to the conclusion that I am definitely in the minority around here, being a Cardinals fan. Please tell me there are a few other fans of the Cards around here, and that it's not really all Cubs fans. I live with 3 Cubs fans, and that's more than I would like to live with.

    Someone...anyone...give me a Redbirds fan to talk to during the upcoming season, which is most likely going to be sad, long, and bottom-dwelling. Not as bad as the Cubs' last 100 years, but not a 2006 season either.

    Please?

    Cardinal's rule. Forget the Cubs like they've forgotten how to win a Series. GO CARDS!!!

    HUGE Cardinals fan here. We should start a Cardinals buddy list so we can rally against all the Cubs lovers on here.

    I will always be available to talk up the Cards.

    Also, don't pay attention to the Cubs fans. They just want attention to make themselves feel good about their chances (AGAIN).

    Re: Cardinals?

    I don't think you'll have trouble finding Cardinal fans on here. They always seem to outpost us Cubs fans 2 to 1 in baseball threads no matter how much they're outnumbered. They rival SouthernHawk in that respect.

    Re: Cardinals?

    I live in St Louis and am a Cubs fan. It's not quite as bad as when I lived in Iowa City as a State fan.

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Cubs fans are very numerous and vociferous, and they are everywhere, and they really like you to know that they are Cubs fans. I am not sure why that is. But I always felt seriously outnumbered walking around campus in the spring. I think there are a lot of folks who become Cubs fans because it is the "popular" thing to do -- and if you engage in a conversation with them, you'll quickly find they know nothing about "their" team. It's more a social/being seen thing for them.

    Now, that's not to say there isn't a dedicated care of knowledgeable and passionate Cubs fans. No one can deny that. But I get tired of meeting people wearing Cubs attire who have no real loyalty to the team. Sure, you have that in every fanbase, but the Cubs are the worst about this. Even in central Texas, there are more Cubs fans than Astros fans.

    I also get tired of watching their "fans" throw water and beer bottles onto the outfield when they lose a late lead.
