Click on each team's set of columns, and you'll see what looks like a happy Sox fan cheering in the stands. And on the Cubs side, you see someone at a Daley Center rally who, well, I'll let you judge.

Voted- nice comments by Cubs fans making fun of Ozzie's English. Very nice making fun of people born in other countries who have won more championships in the last 5 years than they have in the last 101. I guess I am just a very very very unintelligent fan.

I saw a piece on this voting on the news this morning. They has sound bites from Sox fans and idiots.

The Sox fans kept emphasizing that we actually watch the ballgame when we're at the park. One Sox fan said there are no yuppies at Comiskey (I guess this was before the headline in today's Tribune announcing there will be a wine bar at Comiskey this year came out). The idiots said we are "mean." The idiots also said getting drunk is fun. One female idiot asked "what is wrong with being drunk and attractive?"

The screenshots they showed of the poll were from yesterday when the poll was 50/50.

The piece started with Sox fans and players celebrating the success of 2005 and mentioned the 100+ year drought the idiots celebrate.

The comments on the cubs side are priceless...it just validates our whole point about the generalization of Cubs fans. Here's a few comments on their side:

At least there is somewhere and something to do after a Cubs game

Cubs are gonna be better than the Sox. The Sox hardly EVER have sell out crowds, while the Cubs set a new record each year. The only time the Sox's have a sell out is when the Cubs are there. =)

Yea 2nd the beer thing! WE hAve better beer, and moooooooooore of it!! OLDSTYLE PARTY TIME!!!!

They'll NEVER !! beat Wrigley Field for the perfect place to watch a basrball game.

Being a Cubs Fan is a lifestyle ... Nothing better than watching a game in the bleachers at Wrigley! LOVE IT!

Who sells out? And who always has empty seats? Shouldn't that say something?

cubbies rule wrigleyville is what it's all about

This thing has ten more days to run, so I think the key will be for us to just pour in votes whenever we think of it. If it gets down to the wire and it's close, we can mount a big charge.

And if you haven't already, check out some of the comments. Especially on the Cubs side; it's amazing how many of them mention attendence. The main thought process seems to be "so what if we suck; we always sell out our games." :?:

I know the stereotypes are played out and all, but most stereotypes only exist because there is a shred of truth to them. Anyways, I was at my buddy's house over the weekend, and we were talking Opening Day, Cutler, etc., and his wife goes on about how she doesn't know who any of these people are, and how she doesn't care about sports at all. But she made sure to mention she was a Cubs fan. Seriously. She doesn't care about sports at all, but she's a Cubs fan, because the games are "more fun" and "the atmosphere". She also said that Sox fans are too aggressive. I'm not making this up.
