Chicago and Saint Louis have a rivalry. I believe it originated when Chicagoans got tired of being a first-class city with a second-rate baseball team, while having to exist near Saint Louis, a second-rate city (a hard truth) with a first-class baseball team. The injustice makes them bitter.
But, since then, the Cubs won the Worlds Series, and good for them. Given that the St. Louis Cardinals are in the baseball playoffs, like, every other year, the Cubs can win one. I will allow it.
And now, so soon after, just as that feeling of Chicago baseball superiority was beginning to fade then BAM! Like a body slam against the boards, Saint Louis gets another first-class sports team when the Blues hockey team finally wins the Stanley Cup. Will Chicago be magnanimous, or will they start to feel insecure again?
