I find myself in a unique position as Sports Director of Missourinet. I cover the Royals and Cardinals, but I’ve never made it a secret, in fact it’s on my profile here on the website, I’m from Chicago and I’m a Cubs fan.
One of the things I pride myself on is being able to report on both teams and be fair and critical of both. During the season, I’ve had multiple Cubs fans call me out on Twitter for being a Cardinals homer. I guess my handle @Missourisports throws them off.
I’m actually proud that I can do my job and get equal reaction from both fan bases whether I praise or criticize their team.
What we have here is historic. 2,363 games played and this is the biggest…the first playoff game. For us in the Midwest, whether you wear Cardinal red or Cubbie blue, this is as good as it gets.
