My favorite thing in the current world (baseball twitter edition) is to check the @BestFansStLouis twitter account after every St. Louis Cardinals playoff loss. Doing so you will learn some things about a number of Cardinals fans.
1. They are the best fans in the world. Also, why they are the best fans in the world. Repeatedly.
2. Some/many/a number of their fans are HORRIBLY racist and/or homophobic. This series against the Giants has brought out the best/worst in them.
3. They hate their own players almost as much as the other team if they a) make an error, b) blow a save, c) miss an important game because of what said fan deems an insignificant injury, or d) make an out at an inopportune time.
4. They REALLY hate Albert Pujols and are overjoyed that the Angels didn’t make the postseason. And they don’t know the difference between “traitor” and “trader”.
@BestFansStLouis has gone above and beyond lately by taking a screenshot of some racist/homophobic tweets and when the culprit experiences tweeter remorse and deletes said tweet, they tweet at them with the picture of their horrible thoughts and wonder if it was deleted by mistake.
I’m glad someone has taken the time to shed this negative light on these assholes.
Of course I have to say that I understand that it isn’t every Cardinals fan and that every team has their share of “bad” fans. I have to say this because I will probably get a message from some dummy who doesn’t understand that this is implied and I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck.
