I've been sitting on the afterward for a while, but I've never really been happy with it. I figured I'd throw it out there, since I (along with, I assume, many others) have almost completely forgotten that the Cardinals won the World Series.

I'm sorry for bringing back this topic since it has been awhile but I have to share my experience with you. My father is a die hard Cardinals fan. I have to live with this on a day by day basis. I have to hear it every day, non-stop, the gloating and the celebrations. He does this because he says he loves me. I had to get him the World Series DVD for christmas, plus a t-shirt, plus a jersey-plus a hat, plus a team photo, and that stupid rally squirrel thing. The pain and suffering I have been through this winter is exactly why I will be in therapy in 10 years. haha

It is non-stop. He'll joke with me and say "Gee, I wonder if they have that 1908 World Series DVD for the Cubs out yet ... OH YEA, guess they don't!" ... OOOOOH It grates on my nerves!

He absolutely believes, some friends of his as well, the power of the rally squirrel will bring home another championship this year. I love my father but this is just downright cruel, what I have to go through! I feel better now.

That borders on child abuse. You have my deepest sympathies.
Please don't feed the psychos.

Pretty much sums up every Cards fan I know.

Thanks guys, this is something I've been tossing around in my head for a few weeks and finally decided to write last night, kind of a way to vent my frustration.


And I think that comes from the announcing style/philosophy of the franchise, too much small market parochialism. We tell it like it is, it just needs to be a better tale.

Don't get me started on Cardinals TV and radio personalities, they're awful. Mike Shannon sounds like he's always drunk, which isn't great to listen to but it isn't as bad as Al Hrabosky who does nothing but state how many solo home runs the Cardinals need to hit whenever they're behind in a game.

Personally, I don't like Mike Shannon's voice, let alone descriptions of the game.

Lucky for him the tie-in to the Busch family back when they still owned the Cards.

And I've disliked him since he nearly destroyed Glenn Beckert's knee trying to break up a double play.
