Just heard an ad for Mulley and Hanley calling this the Black and Blue Series. I like it. What's your favorite tag for the Cubs-Sox "rivalry" series? If not listed, add yours!

Windy City Series is better than Crosstown Classic.

Crosstown Classic was an exhibition game in the 80's and early 90's.

I like Crosstown Classic, I'd save Red Line series for if the two teams ever made it to the WS

I remember calling it the Windy City Classic growing up so I picked other with that as my choice.

I had an old Busch beer thermal cup with CROSSTOWN CLASSIC written across it ... from the exhibition games.

Remember how heated u get over an exhibition game? Luckily, IIRC the Sox rolled.

Yep, I remember the 1987 game was pitcher Ralph Citarella's brief shining moment with the Sox.

I also remember Bruce Wolf doing an inning of play-by-play as his alter ego Chet Chitchat and let off a "BOOM shakka-lakka!" when the Sox launched a home run.

That would be one El of a series.

That was the catchline for much of 1977 when both teams were in First Place for most of the summer.

I've always called it the Chicago Pro/Am, but I'm switching to Black and Blue now.
