If the St. Louis Cardinals wind up winning the World Series, it’s possible their fans will apologize. No joke.
It’s true what they say about St. Louisans being impossibly polite. They are the Ned Flanders of Major League Baseball fans. But that doesn’t mean folks here aren’t taking the World Series seriously. On the way to the park Sunday, we tuned into KSHE 94.7 — “The Rock of St. Louis” — and heard the drive-time DJ vow not to play any songs about Boston, or by Boston bands, for the remainder of the series. Unfortunately, they did happen to play “In the Mood” by Rush, so we changed the station.
