The Cardinals seem to do nothing but win.
Now we may be beginning to understand why.
Are they the New England Patriots of MLB?
Well, the next Bill Murray movie may not draw big in St. Louis.
The actor, funnyman, baseball enthusiast and noted Chicago Cubs fan took aim at the rival St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday, as he played in the John Deere Classic pro-am golf tournament in Silvis, Ill.
This wasn't any jab, though, Murray said Cardinals fans are aligned with Satan. From Don Doxsie at the Quad City Times:
[Murray] also found time for almost everyone who approached him Wednesday, especially if you were a little kid or a pretty girl. If you were a St. Louis Cardinals fan?
Well, maybe not. Murray, wearing a floppy hat and a blue and gold paisley shirt that was perpetually untucked, began bantering with the masses before he took his first swing. He asked if any fans saw his beloved Cubs sweep St. Louis in a double-header Tuesday. One woman behind the ropes said she was a Cardinals fan.
“Satan’s messengers on Earth," was the way Murray described the Cardinals.
“And then it turns out your team is cheaters, too,’’ he added.
Ohhhh, and he's hitting them with the hacking scandal too! Ice cold, Bill.
The question here will be whether the Best Fans in Baseball can shake off the musings of a Cubs-loving funnyman. It's probably best, St. Louis people, to just endorse Dan Aykroyd as your new favorite "Ghostbuster" and move on. Bill Murray is too unpredictable a foe
