I'm watching the Giants v Cards Game 1 and I'm pulling or St. Louis for several reasons.
1. If the Nats are going to lose and in the manner they did, I want the other team to win it all, otherwise it won't feel like its worth it.
2. As horrible as Friday was, there wasn't a Cards fan that I ran into that was trying to gloat or rub it in. Their fans just tend to be better fans, not like Philly fans.
3. I would love to see a rivalry between these teams that is just good baseball, and have it keep bubbling up in the postseason, and I'd really like to see the Nationals take them down as defending WS champs (as they should have this season).
4. I've had at least 10 people who I know that are Cards fans email me to express their shock at the win, state what a classy team the Nationals are, and even before the game on Friday, some said "if the Nationals beat the Cardinals tonight, I'd like to see the Nationals win it all."
All this means I'm pulling for the Cards over the Giants.
