They are one of the few teams whose history may outshine the Queen cities.
The Cubs will always be our natural rival, but I absolutely consider what we have to be a rivalry, much like the rivalry we had with the Astros in the early to mid/late 2000's.
I would say Cardinals fans have a bit more respect/admiration for those Astros teams, unfortunately... but I feel like that's a result of our little brawl a few years ago and Dat Dude's not-so-complimentary comments about St. Louis some time ago as well. To me, that's a shame because the Reds have a lot of good pros on their team, but that's how things shake out.
I do enjoy this site . Honestly, I'm not a fan of any of the true Cardinals designated sites. Most are filled with crazies or extremists. There doesn't appear to be one single site that manages that well for Cardinals fans. Maybe that's the nature of having a large fanbase; you have a lot of nuts out there.
Personally, the best Birds discussion I get -- with exceptional Cards fans -- is a St. Louis based site that discusses sports, culture, politics, music. They have a gameday thread every day, and it's quite entertaining and informative.
Anyway, I'm hoping that I'll get approval one of these days to post in the game threads on the Sun Deck segment of the site; mostly because few people post here.
While I may disagree with Reds fans, I don't troll. That seems immature and idiotic to me. And I'd really only come over here before, during, and after a series. But anyway.
We'll see you guys soon... Lotta season left.
