That hat thing is hilarious. I do the same thing: "Oh, their hat's old and sweaty - they're a TRUE Cardinals fan!"

My dad was a huge Cardinals fan. My earliest memories involve driving around in the pickup on warm summer evenings with KMOX on the radio, listening to the Cardinals play. Dad always took me on these jaunts with him, not my brother. He knew all along he was raising a diehard fan.
