Homophobic Cardinals fans embarrass St. Louis
The Kansas City Star
Even the mayor of St. Louis has had to apologize today for some of the fans of the Cardinals baseball team.
The San Francisco Giants defeated St. Louis Monday night in the National League Championship Series.
And the seventh and final game wasn’t close: a 9-0 beatdown to snuff out the 2012 season for St. Louis.
In fact, St. Louis had led the NCLS by a 3-1 margin, before getting swept in the final three games and outscored by an eye-popping 20-1 margin.
The ending stunned all of the Cardinals fans who had thought they would be watching World Series games against the Detroit Tigers in late October.
But they weren’t speechless.
In a series of homophobic rants, some Cardinals fans took to Twitter to rail against the Giants and against San Francisco.
On Wednesday, that prompted Mayor Francis Slay to tweet a few minutes ago: ‘“Fans” tweeting homophobic comments after the NLCS do not reflect the sportsmanship of Cardinal Nation.”
True words, and good for the mayor and for all the true Cardinals fans today speaking out against the ugly rants.
