Yeah I mean there is always that '82 World Series that was dubbed the "Suds Series" that's always brought up during meetings with Milwaukee, especially last season. When Milwaukee and St. Louis meet, the fans kind of circle each other like alley cats hissing at each other like who
We kind of do the same thing with Cincinnati, but it's even worse, it almost never fails to get ugly at some point during the season. Cubs vs Cardinals almost seems good natured in comparison, so long as the Cubs suck, that is...god forbid when they have an OK start to a season.
