    Seriously, you're wrong. Would you rather someone insult your family in a locker roiom or on social media where the whole world can read it?

    Hate speech is not defensible in any forum IMO. It does take place in lots of them, and that's too bad. Hopefully in generations to come, certain homophobic words will be just a taboo as the "N" word is now. I'd say society is heading that way -- but nor for awhile.

    Oh well. At least the Cards lost.

    I'm not saying it's right. I'm saying in reality it happens.

    There are still people on twitter who unironically use the #bestfansinbaseball hashtag when talking about the Cardinals. God they are the worst, and the networks just heap on the praise.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I love that the Cardinals lost. LOVE it. I know it doesn't make up for the Reds getting knocked out, but it'll have to do.

    McCarver and Buck were downright depressed last night. Very enjoyable.

    On another note, when will baseball come to it's senses and get a broadcast team that people will actually enjoy, not just put up with?

    And its not just Reds fans who complain about those two dimwits. During the championship series, I had friends of both the Cardinals and the Giants who complained about them.

    Re: At least the Cards lost

    Unfortunately for my 2 boys I influenced them to become Reds fans instead of Cardinals fans like everyone else is in my area. Most people that know my boys and me know that we are big Reds fans so of course I take grief a lot....especially since my wife and her entire family are Cardinals fans. We watched the final game and immediately when it ended my oldest son said he was calling one of his teachers to gloat. I wouldn't let him because I said he probably went to bed 30 minutes ago when all hope was gone. He didn't like that too much. Yesterday after school the teacher called me and said, "Paul you are a bigger man than me." I laughed because I remembered the text messages I had gotten (from him) a few days before saying something about the Reds choking. Most of you guys have it easy. You live in Reds country or some other teams country and don't have to put up with this stuff all of the time. I have grown to "loathe" the Cardinals fans as much as some on here loathe Chris Carpenter. Did I relish the Giants beating the Cardinals? Some, but to be honest I spent most of the time saying, "this should have been the Reds." The pain of this season isn't going away like it did in 1999 (which hurt really bad), or 2010. I am happy the Cardinals lost but I am way more upset that the Reds didn't win.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    No, mission was accomplished with the Cardinals losing. No rooting interest here.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em

    Same as me. I think we would have beat the Cards. Maybe even dismantled them. One Jay Bruce swing or one of another million combinations that we were one short of, and maybe we would have gotten that chance.

    It looks like we will have at least have company brooding in the offseason.
    Looks like MikeThiery was simply previewing the disaster that was the Cardinals vs. the Giants.

    Seriously, there are few things in sports that don't directly involve my teams winning that were more enjoyable than watching the Cards implode like that. Have a long, cold, bitter offseason, so-called "best fans in baseball."



    Oh, and Cards fans: San Francisco is 8 million times the city that St. Louis is.
