I have no reason to hate the Cardinals because doing so would give me some common ground with Cubs fans. I don't care how smug Cardinals fans are. They don't play in the same league or division as the White Sox. If there are smug Cardinals fans who want to keep smug Cubs fans in their place, that alone seems an outstanding reason to root for the Cardinals.
In an world where I could isolate my existence in life as a Sox fan, it would work. In reality, I can't do it. All my wife's family and former associates are from Missouri (and not the part that roots for the Royals) so I have already had my fill of Yadi-crushes, rally squirrels, and Wachtober.
