For some reason, St. Louis Cardinals fans are known as being the best in the world.  I'm not sure how the voting shook out, but if @BestFansStLouis is any indication...there needs to be a re-count.By now, you've seen what the Twitter account is all about, right?  Basically, as Deadspin put it, "one brave soul is keeping tabs on the temporary insanity for us and retweeting all the troubled Cardinals fans"...and it is glorious.  I learned more than I could've ever imagined about the city of San Francisco and its inhabitants during the NLCS.Enter St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay.That's right, the Mayor of St. Louis has gotten involved.  Kinda.  Slay didn't tell the "fans" to stop with the hate speech...he, well, basically said "that's not how Cardinal Nation thinks" even though, apparently, some of it does.Come on, man, flex your internet muscles and take these tweeters to task like WREG in Memphis did.Wait, hold on...did that story really include a soundbite from a guy who actually defends the actions of the St. Louis fans by saying "Come on. They’re from San Francisco. What are we supposed to say?"  And, did it, basically, report that they, the station, is upset because Giants pitcher Matt Cain went to high school in, gasp, nearby Germantown, Tennessee?  Wow.  Nevermind.Tweet what you want, Cardinals fans, apparently no one is going to tell you to shut up...you're the best in the world.
