During the postseason, I couldn’t get away from people talking about the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s to be expected being this close to St. Louis. As someone who couldn’t care less about baseball, I’ll admit it, it got annoying. My Facebook page was cluttered with statuses, such as “Go Cards!” “12 in 12″ and “Proud to be a Cardinals fan!” On Twitter, the trends reflected the passion of the Cardinals fan base.
And then, it was all over. Monday night, the San Francisco Giants thoroughly trounced the Cardinals and eliminated their shot at the World Series championship. If you’ve got a Cardinals fan in your life, he or she is undoubtedly devastated. Here are some conversation topics to cheer them up.
1. “Hey! There’s always next year!”
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about these fans, it’s that they never lose faith in their team. The day after the loss, “12 in 13″ was trending on Twitter. That shows resilience.
2. “Pujols didn’t even make it to the postseason.”
That’ll put a smug smile on any Cardinals fan’s face. Albert Pujols is a sore subject, and his move to the Angels was obviously a poor choice.
3. “How ’bout those ________ (insert another sports team)?”
They can’t be sad about the Cardinals, if they’re not thinking about them.
4. “At least you guys didn’t get swept.”
Yankees. Nuff said.
5. “You won last year. Suck it up.”
It’s a little mean, but still…
And if worse comes to worst, you can text your fan friend a picture of his or her celebrity crush. (This worked on my roommate.)
