Boston Takes Out Ad To Thank St. Louis

As an aficionado of irregular sports and games, I can tell you that Americans, for as much as they talk about sportsmanship, are not very sporting. Sportsmanship, manners, and chivalry, a "gentlemanlike manner" as Austen might have it, are lacking.

Here is a remarkable exception. The Red Sox have taken out a full page ad in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to thank the Cardinals and the city for a great World Series.

Continued success in the future, you Sox.
