DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) – The Big D vs the Gateway to the West. America’s team vs…Never mind…

We came up with many reasons why Dallas is simply much better than St. Louis in honor of our Stars taking on the Blues in the conference semifinals of the NHL playoffs.

The puck drops on Friday in what should be a very competitive series. Dallas finished the Minnesota Wild off in six games, while the Blues outlasted the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks in game seven on Monday night.

So what makes Dallas so much better than St. Louis? Forget the fact that Nelson Cruz missed a fly ball, or the fact that David Freese still gives us nightmares. We don’t (do) care about that really.

But let’s be honest here, St. Louis, your hockey team is named after blues music. While that may be cool…Ours is named after twinkles in the freakin’ sky.

When your team scores a goal, you rip off the lyrics to a popular song (‘When The Saints go Marchin’ In’ to ‘When The Blues Go Marchin’ In’). How lame is that? I guess not every team gets a badass rock band to write a song for you. Imagine thousands of fans chanting “Dallas Stars” after Jamie Benn adds a tally to his exploding score sheet!

Another thing, Texas made microbreweries are better than any swill that Budweiser could produce. By the way, Anheser-Busch/Budweiser isn’t even owned by an American anymore if you didn’t know.

In Texas, we cook the entire animal, not just the ribs like you guys. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have Texas barbecue over St. Louis’ style ribs because it comes with more than one kind of meat.

*St. Louis sucks for so many reasons, starting with the word suck – which has been deemed a profanity by the St. Louis Cardinals and is thus prohibited from being on any sign or piece of clothing at Busch Stadium. Really?! Come on now! (Kevin Hageland – K&C Masterpiece)

We have AT&T, Southwest Airlines and Comerica Bank, not to mention Exxon Mobile (Irving) and American Airlines (Fort Worth) are our neighbors.

The greatest St. Louis Blue of all-time, Brett Hull, didn’t even win you a cup, but he did score the game-winning goal in triple overtime of game six to help the Stars win the 1999 Stanley Cup.

By now, everyone knows that St. Louis no longer has an NFL franchise. To make things worse…The beloved owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, had a major influence on the other NFL owners to help Stan Kroenke move the Rams to Los Angeles.
