St. Louis isn't even in the top ten for Google's most depressing places to live. Chicago is #3 though...

"Most Miserable" Tell me about it! This is hands down the WORST city I have EVER lived in.
I can't wait to leave. If you're form here, I understand why you love it. But if you moving from any major coastal area, this is not the place. The Mississippi is ugly and who cares about baseball.

What a shame. I lived in St. Louis for several years and learned to love it. As someone said earlier, these "top ten" lists are ridiculous, because they don't really account for the nuances of individual places, and that St. Louis is a great "city" - which I agree with. I now live in Fort Lauderdale, and while I would take StL over FLL any day, I have learned to appreciate the good things about this place. Otherwise, it would be miserable. If you are truly that miserable, for the sake of your mental health you should leave.

Let's ask fans of coastal baseball teams like the Yankees, Mets, Phillies, Red Sox, Dodgers and Giants who cares about baseball.

Dodger fans have a life outside of baseball, it doesn't run their life.

I would argue the fanaticism is limited to New York, Boston, Chicago, and St. Louis. In Los Angeles, sports, baseball, but really all sports, are treated differently than the cold weather, eastern cities. MLB is a hobby or an activity once you break west of St. Louis. Here it is a passion, just like my former home in New Jersey (NYC).

I'll take FL over StL in a heartbeat, counting the days till I leave.
Just going to Chicago for the weekend is a get out of jail card.
I'm speaking form an outsiders perspective. If you're from this area, I understand why you love it. There's no place like home.
