08/10/2004: As a lifelong National League fan.....
I rather liked seeing Tony LaRussa say this in an interview with the Post-Dispatch (context is that the Cardinals have been broaching the idea of a contract extension to LaRussa, who is in the last year of his contract with the Cardinals):
La Russa says he now considers himself a "National League guy" after initially harboring a dislike for what he considered the league's superiority complex when he arrived after 17 seasons in the junior circuit.
"I don't want to go back" to the American League, he said. "I like the game here. I like how it's played and how it's managed."
