Cardinals vs. Cubs: Which team do you choose?

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

The biggest Midwest rivalry, Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals, will be meeting at the playoffs on Friday night for the first time in history.

People in Carbondale shared who they're rooting for, and it seemed pretty split down the middle.

“Hi, I’m Erin Sweeney, die hard Cubs fan,” Erin Sweeney said.

“Got a lot of people from Chicago down here, but you have to root for the Cardinals obviously,” 

“I’ve been to several games, just love the Cubs," Oscar Valencia said.

Patrick Mansell is all for the Cardinals, and when asked why, he said "Why the Cubs?"

And some folks threw a curve ball.

“I always root for the cubs, unless their playing for the Cardinals but then I have to cheer for them to win," one Carbondale resident said. "But I still really love the Cubs.”

For Erin Sweeney, it was a house divided.

“Our town was split, 51 percent Cubs, 49 percent Cardinals," Sweeney said. "And dad told me I had to be a Cubs fan, so Mom’s side is Cardinals fan, dad’s side is Cubs fans  so,I went with my dad’s side.

And at Kampus Kutz in Carbondale, Illinois, it seemed as though it was a barbershop divided.

“I think the predictions from back to the future were correct. They said in 2015 , the Cubbies would win the World Series..And I think it’s gonna happen," one barber said with excitement

“STL's finest! Cardinals, yes, that’s all I gotta say. We’ll see you at the playoffs," another barber said with excitement.
