I used to be indifferent about the Cards. But one of my closest friends I met about 7 years ago is a rabid Cards fan, and although he's probably not representative of their fanbase, he's become insufferable about how great they are. At some point you get tired of hearing, from them even, how great they are as fans. Self-righteousness is one of my least favorite characteristics. Give me loud and obnoxious over self-righteous any day. Be arrogant about the team, that's cool. But they've become arrogant about themselves.
