WWCFD? (What Would Cardinals Fans DO?) — October 26, 2016

WWCFD? (What Would Cardinals Fans DO?)

Is the World Series Special or What? Everyone everywhere is buzzing about those Cubbies. Even non-fans have become hopefuls. Except for those Cardinal fans. THOSE FANS. Now, THOSE FANS hold a serious grudge. Me? I love the idea that Cubs can possibly overturn the curse. I love an underdog, like the Cubbies, who year after year after year have high hopes, only to miss the mark. Not this year! Nope, they are there…glued to $2,000 seats at the ballpark or more realistically, glued to their televisions. I asked a couple co-workers, who happen to be Cardinal fans, if they will watch. Their answers were exactly the same.
“If they’re losing, I’ll watch for a bit and flip to the The Voice, NCIS or The Hallmark Channel.  In fact, I might finally organize the garage, the attic AND my sock drawer.” And all that’s just the first game…

And if they’re winning?

“No way. I’ll click the remote right through it.” Then they high-fived each other. Birds of a feather…

As the Series progresses, guess who’ll be in the groceries on game nights? And guess who’ll be bragging about getting their Christmas Shopping done? And look who’ll be walking the dog, the cat and the bird without being nagged. The way I figure, the world will stop each game for Cubs fans. But the ONLY way you’d get a Cardinals fan’s cheeks in the seats for the World Series, is if  we get a severe, stationary Canadian Clipper weather pattern AND the only other programs on TV, Netflix and Hulu  are replays of the Hilz and the Donald’s debates. Then and only then, I’d bet you could get a Cardinal Fan to watch the Cubs. Maybe. If you can get them out of the laundry room or from underneath the car in the middle of an oil change, that is.

C’mon you Cardinal fans, give the Cubbies a break. What’s not to love about the Cubs?  They watched the Cards play and win the Series in 2011, didn’t they? Or not. That’s right, they were spackling the walls of the dog’s kennel.  And THAT’s what Cardinals fans will do.
