QUESTION: I was in a bar wearing a Cardinals shirt and a patron asked me if I was a Blues fan. I said I am now. Are the Blues threatening the Cardinals as the favorite sports team in town?

GORDO: No. The Blues' fan base is a fraction of the Cardinals' fan base.

The Blues bandwagon is crowded right now, but most of those folks were very late arrivals.
