Jefferson City

Main Story
A city where Cardinals fans out number Royals fans 8:1 maybe even more. But hey when it comes to which team is more caring for the Capitol City ? Well the local News Tribune answers that one:
Royals Caravan to make stop
Cardinal Caravan skipping the Capitol City
By News Tribune staff
The Kansas City Royals plan a Caravan stop in Jefferson City this week. The St.Louis Cardinals annual caravan, however, is skipping Jefferson City.
A group of current and former Royals are scheduled Wednesday to be at Hy-Vee, 3721 W.Truman Blvd. Current players Joakim Soria and Billy Butler, Royals Hall of Famer Willie Wilson, former player and current hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, Hall of Fame broadcaster Denny Matthews and team mascot Slugger are slated to be at the store from 3:30-4:30 PM.
The Cardinal Caravan also starts this week . The closet Mid-Missouri stop to Jefferson City for the group will be Saturday at Mizzou Arena in Columbia.
Players scheduled to attend include Kyle McClellan, Colby Rasmus, Brian Barton and Jess Todd. Others slated to participate include Jay Randolph, Rick Horton and Ken Dayley.
The event will start at 11:30 a.m. To attend, fans must purchase a ticket to the Missouri men's basketball game against Iowa State, scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m.

That should be the first clue as to who cares more for you Jeff City. The Royals bring Billy Butler, All-Star Joakim Soria, and a baseball Hall of Famer +, while the Cardinals bring Colby Rasmus and a whole slew of nobodies And you have to pay for it ? I understand if it was a baseball game, but a basketball game ??? That's because baseball and basketball are just a bout the same sport.

So a guy walks in to a bar in Kansas City and says to the bar tender "Do you wanna here a joke about St.Louis ?" The bar tender leans over and says I'm from St.Louis that guy seating next to you he is 275 lbs and from St.Louis and our bouncer is from St. Louis. So do you still want to tell that joke ? The guy looks down and says nope, not if I have to explain it three times.

Blast from 2003
