BOSTON (CBS) – At the WBZ Water Cooler: At St. Louis Airport, the sign in the terminal greeting passengers coming in from Boston Friday read “St. Louis welcomes Boston Red Sox fans.” We talked with Anchor/Reporter Brian Kelly of KMOX in St. Louis, who told us “The love of the Cardinals is handed down from generation to generation,” and no matter where you live in the area “the Cardinals are the one thing we all have in common.”
He says the players really feed off that home field advantage and it’s a wonderful atmosphere. Kelly says “We call ourselves the best fans in baseball, I don’t know if that’s true or not, but we appreciate the game.”

Kelly remembers when Cardinals security opened up the gates right before the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series, letting Sox fans without tickets in. He says, “I don’t know if we are going to feel quite that way this time around, because we’ve already been through that — we’ve been nice and now it’s our turn.”
