St. Louis Cardinals' Parade: Fans Don't Deserve Parade After Quitting on Team

It's a tradition in most professional sports that the championship-winning team holds a parade for the fans of the city shortly after bringing home the title.

That means that a parade will be held in St. Louis after the team walked away victorious in one of the greatest World Series in the history of the game.

It's a parade that the fans in the city of St. Louis do not deserve.

For a city who claims to be the best baseball town in the business, St. Louis sure exhibited Miami Heat fan-esque tendencies in game six of the World Series.

With the Cardinals down 5-3 entering the ninth inning, the stadium began to empty in St. Louis.

That's right, fans were leaving. They had given up on the team before the game was over.

The rest was history.

The team surmounted a miraculous comeback to erase a two-run deficit to send the game to extra innings.

Then they erased another two run deficit in the 10th inning to prolong the game even further.

They won the game in the 11th, sending the Series to a Game 7 where they would eventually become world champions.

I'm a firm believer that if you can't stand by your team at the worst of times, you don't deserve to celebrate during their best of times.

These fans gave up on their team, a team that has more championships than any other team in National League history.

The team never gave up. They fought back and earned the right to be called champions.

The city and the fans don't deserve to have that right after their actions in Game 6.
