The Red Eye is running a poll on what team should be given up on in Chicago and unfortunately the White Sox are first as of now. Let us change that now.

The Sox are in 1st place out of 256 votes with 41%. Probably the same 3 Cub fans clicking 30 times each.

Agreed. Has anyone ever read that pile of garbage the Tribune tries to pass of as a newspaper? Ugh it is awful.

Most people would vote for the White Sox because Chicago has two major league baseball teams and the Cubs are the more popular. If I lived in Chicago, I could easily live without any team other than the White Sox and Cubs and could do without the Cubs.

A free paper even crappier than the Trib is these days...who cares indeed.

FWIW, the Cubs are now in the lead for getting the heave-ho.

To be honest, I don't see the need to lose either baseball team. My vote goes to the Blackhawks.

I would have picked the Fire, Wolves, and Rush all before the Hawks. Unfortunately I didn't have those choices. To be honest, I only watch and care about baseball. All the other teams could go for I all I care. Hawks just got the choice because I can't name anyone on their team aside from Patrick Kane and that's only because of the cabbie.

The Bulls could pick up and move to Anchorage, and it would have absolutely no impact on my life.

Well the Rush are gone. AFL folded.

I have to agree. Out of those five teams, the 'Hawks are the one I follow the least. keep the Wolves here and I'll be happy.

I fully agree. The only basketball I ever watch is college basketball. Give me Duke/UNC over Cavs/Lakers any day.

Well how about that there is more to the Red Eye than just Bar ads.

But, just to prove how dumb Red Eye polls are, check out yesterday's. They can't even ask a poll question properly.

I'd pick the Bulls only because the Cubs are going nowhere and I <3 the Hawks and Bears. I like where the Bulls are going an the playoff race was fun, but I don't like basketball. :dunno:

I never thought I'd ever be excited to see the Cubs win anything, but I hope to say after this poll is concluded: "CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!"

I'm a Hawks fan, but that's how I think a lot of people feel about hockey.

Now...48%. Sox next at 30%.

Now the Cubs are winning. Must be the same five Sox fans voting 30 times each.

Not because I hate the Cubs, but because I love the Sox, Bears, Bulls, and Hawks.

I wouldn't want it to happen, but if the White Sox ever did leave town, I would instantly become a far more productive human.

Hockey is a niche sport in the US, but those who love it, REALLY love it. I for one can't understand the interest for the life of me. Having said that, the NBA is brutal. Living in Seattle, we just lost the NBA team and I can say I don't miss it one second. As many fond memories as I have the 90s Bulls, I really couldn't care less what they do now. I'd have to think long and hard between the Hawks and the Cubs. While I dislike the Cubs, I think it's cool Chicago has two baseball teams.
