Kansas City Star Disses St. Louis Prior to Weekend Cardinals/Royals Series

That smell? Kansas Shitty just farted in our general direction.
Ouch! The barbs from the Kansas City Star today, they hurt!

The daily paper over in Missouri's second-largest city is out with a list comparing its city to St. Louis. Boil it down and the author of the piece suggests that not only do St. Louis sports fans lack taste, but so do the city's restaurants, beer and culture.

Here's are a few pithy examples from the article:

•Kansas City: Employees at Boulevard Brewery invite you to responsibly enjoy a delicious beer.

•St. Louis: Employees at Enterprise Rent-A-Car harass you about buying redundant insurance.

•Kansas City: Jason Sudeikis is among a group of natives who are emerging as stars in television and the movies.

•St. Louis: Cedric the Entertainer is among a group of natives who were sort of popular, like, 10 years ago.

Apparently the author has never availed himself of the free handouts at end of the Anheuser-Busch brewery tour or heard about Schlafly and the city's other microbreweries. And Cedric? C'mon, everyone knows that these days we're all about claiming John Hamm.

Anyhoo, I used to think that St. Louis had the biggest inferiority complex in the nation. Now I know it's Kansas City. Phew!

Note: I did appreciate the columnist's dig that went: Neither St. Louis nor Kansas City had an NHL playoff team this year, and neither will have Albert Pujols next year.
