“We are Cardinal Nation!” “It’s the Cardinal Way!” “Best fans in baseball!”
These are just a few phrases that makes the rest of MLB fan bases DESPISE us.
Oh, hey! Look! It’s Heyward! BOOOOOOOO!!!
I’m going to say something that just might rustle some jimmies (but, then again, there will be a lot of that in this article): if we weren’t such a winning team that makes it to the playoffs all the damn time, we would be just another baseball team. I have proof…
…that was just two of many. Trying to keep this blog somewhat short (and I’m also lazy).
I would say that I follow a pretty diverse group of fan bases on Twitter. Anytime we play their team, I see so much hatred. If I had one word to describe it: hilarious. I CANNOT honestly say that I see them tweet about other teams the way they tweet about the Cardinals. So really, it’s just…well…really amusing.
Another thing that makes me question if people have brains or not is the way people believe everything they see within media. If you are a Cardinals fan – or really any fan in general – that is breathing, you may have heard about how supposedly (according to ESPN and many other resources) Cardinals fans were yelling racial slurs at Heyward as he made his return to Busch Stadium on Monday night. If you have not, then you might want to check yourself for a pulse.
So naturally, other fan bases were so turned on when they found out about this news. Why? Because they had something to bitch about directed towards the Cardinals.
(Yeah? Where did you hear that?)
So, people are clearly upset about…nothing. WHAT?! Yeah, I said that. You all are bitching about absolutely nothing. EVEN DEADSPIN STOOD UP FOR US! WOO!
Here are the articles proving that media sources found absolutely nothing:
Check yourself before you wreck yourself, sweetie pies.
So now that I sliced their asses off and served it to them, let’s move on.
Let me make this clear as air: people need to stop judging our fan base based on a few rotten apples in our bunch. I have no idea if people are smart enough to realize this or not, but every fan base has these people. For example, remember when some dumb ass in our front office attempted to steal information from another team? WE, AS FANS AND A BALL CLUB, ARE ALL CHEATERS, RIGHT?!?! Yeah, get the fuck out. That was one lowlife in our front office that decided to be an ass hat. Also, even if some Cardinals fans DID yell racial slurs at Heyward, that does not make our whole entire fan base a bunch of racists. It’s common sense, everybody. Find a real reason to hate us.
I will have to admit, I sometimes question people within the Cardinals’ fan base myself. I scroll through Twitter all day (because I don’t have a life just like you guys) and I watch our fan base say the absolute dumbest shit. Although, I also have to remember, this is happening in every fan base – people just fail to recognize that.
As hated as we are, I would not want to share my heart issues and love for the Cardinals with anybody else.
See you in the playoffs.
