World Series

Today on The Capitol Fax Blog, the question of the day is Simple White Sox, Cubs, or Cards.

White Sox, Cubs or Cardinals?

I really HATE the George Stienbrener Yankees and Cardinals more than anyother professional sports teams. The Yankees just make me sick. All they do is spend money. The Yankees of old I have nothing but respect for Ruth, Gehrig, Maris, Mantle, Berra, Dimaggio and Stengel. There are more on the list but those are my favorites. I will give props to Derek Jeter and Joe T. but that is it.

The Cardinals hatered is much more embedded in the fact that they are the natural rivals of the Cubs. First of all the state bird of Illinois is the Cardinal, slap in the face if you ask me. Secondly,

The Cubs and Cardinals have been facing one another for
decades. And just like the other two rivalries above who can
point at one moment when the rivalry came to a head, the
trading of Babe Ruth and the Shot Heard Round the World, the
Cubs and Cards point to June 15, 1963.

On that fateful day, the Cubs gave up on a young outfielder
named Lou Brock and traded him to the Cards for Ernie Broglio.
The Cubs, who have been losing since the early 1900s, have not
made a World Series since trading Brock. And the Cards have
been to six and won three.
