Here are the Ten Ways to Act Like a BFIB:

10. Clap for the other team.

Here's a hat with a bird on it. We assume she'd clap for the other team if they made a good play and looked like an honest, hard-working team player.

9. Have a crush (or man-crush) on at least one current player.

8. Wear your World Series ring at least once a year.

7. Be unafraid to say player's names in sexy ways ("Hollidaaay! Ow! Ow!") in crowded bars while everyone else is being relatively quiet.

6. Own a red sports blazer.

The "Best Fans In Baseball" is not a self-anointed moniker. It was started by Peter Gammons and many other noted baseball writers. MLB players voted St. Louis the best fans recently too. Do we humblebrag? Sure. Are we way too proud of our fandom and knowledge of the game? Certainly. On the other hand, is most of this "Cardinal Nation backlash" built on ignorance of the game and jealousy? Absolutely.

Weak waves are an embarrassment. It works best in bowls and then only if everyone can understand their role and execute it. You have to see it at The Big House to appreciate it.

i guess even st.louis riverfront times do's not like some cards fans.read it and yes 1 is correct 1. Righteously chastise anybody who violates rules Nos. 2 through 10.ps is right on the money i should know i'm not a cards fan and live near stl.some cards fans tend to over do it and are really rude and obnoxious to me.i have been told by some that i'm a stupid bitch for not liking the cardinals,that i'm a retard etc

Yes, do the wave when it's 10-0, but there shouldn't be a wave when it's 2-1 in the eighth with runners on base. Also, nuts to the whole kid thing. The only people that I see starting the wave are drunk bromen who barely know where they are!

The wave is abhorrent in close ballgames and barely acceptable otherwise. Distracts the players.

There's nothing wrong with the wave. It's for kids when the game is moving as slow as dirt
