One More Reason for St. Louis Hockey Fans to Hate Chicago…
St. Louis hockey fans are not fond of the Chicago Blackhawks. Historically speaking, the hatred runs deep (see: Belfour, Larmer, Chelios, Roenick). More recently, we’re a bit jealous that the Blackhawks began their “rebuilding” process 2-3 years before the Blues and it subsequently led to Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and a ’10 Stanley Cup Championship.
And now, the Blues’ once-exiled head coach is a hero in Chicago.
Well, here’s a little more salt for the wound…
The freaking Clydesdales at the Stanley Cup parade in Chicago last Friday??
Sure, St. Louis’ allegiance to the now-Belgian brewer is questionable, but this is just wrong. Wrong. Those are our floppy-footed equine and that is our beer, dammit.
Doesn’t Old Style or Pabst Blue Ribbon have a mascot that they could trot down Michigan Avenue? Apparently not.
Side Note: There was also this from the Wrigley Field premises a few weeks ago during the Cubs/Cards series. Jerks.
