Hamm spent a year teaching acting in his hometown high school in St. Louis before ultimately deciding to pursue his Hollywood dreams. That doesn't mean he's lost any love for the city, particularly its sports teams. "Someone recently made the comparison of saying the world's biggest Dodger fan in L.A. is pretty much equivalent to the average Cardinal fan in St. Louis," he told Esquire. "And I would only partly disagree with that exaggeration."
