Pretty dumb article but thought people might be interested in reading as we head to St. Louis...

A weak attempt at self-validation. It's as though this guy is trying to convince everyone that the Cardinals are still on top: au contraire. On a side note, people in St. Louis are just as interested in what high school you attended as Cincinnatians are, apparently it says a lot about who you are.

That is the first question asked of anyone who says they're from the St. Louis area, just about every time.

I do not like this MTV worldview creeping into my baseball.

I've never understood this wanting to know where you went to high school around here. Personally, I think it's one of two things--either they want to know which side of town you grew up on/how rich you are/were, or they never outgrew the high school mentality.

I love telling them "Philo High School" when they ask me, and watch the frantic wordless confusion of them trying to figure where in St Louis that is! :p

I think it's option 2, really, especially on the West side of Cincinnati. And I say that as a Cheviot boy.

Of course, you could live in Kentucky where everything is UK. Honestly, I swear, the majority of UK fans can barely spell university, much less have gone to one.

Same thing in Louisville. I think it's mostly trying to figure out what people you both might now.

I've lived in the St. Louis region my entire life and have asked numerous people why that's a big question here, and no one has ever been able to tell me. I just don't get it.
