An Open Letter to the St. Louis Cardinals
Just stop it.
You are embarrassing me. You are embarrassing my family. You are embarrassing yourselves.
My sister was at your game in Houston on Monday night. Ya know, the one against the LOLstros. The first one where you didn’t score any runs. And despite your recent slide against terrible, terrible teams, she still went to the park all decked out in Cardinals gear.
She could’ve used a security detail trying to get out of there.
That’s what it has finally come down to in 2010.
What is more frustrating than anything else isn’t the losing. Look, I know. Baseball teams lose. Even the best teams lose four out of ten. That’s the game. That’s baseball.
But when you lose you look like you don’t care… like it doesn’t bother you… like it’s just another day.
WELL IT’S NOT JUST ANOTHER FRIGGIN’ DAY!
The wheels are coming off and we’re not gonna shut up about it until you start looking like you give a damn. I guarantee you the folks in Cincinnati do. Yes. Finally, they have something to care about; and here we are, a confused, spiraling, spoiled Cardinals nation who thought we could just mail it in until the playoffs…
Well, that ain’t gonna cut it.
I hate to sound over dramatic, but the time has come for some over dramatic butt-kickin’ ‘cuz there ain’t much time left!
So go out there and remember that we’ll always love you, as long as you give your best, tireless efforts.
…and a bazillion other serious Cardinals fans.
