I know this is non-Sox, but I thought it was cool that next year the Cubbies will be at Fenway for the first time since the 1918 World Series. It's only a first draft schedule though.

Agreed.

I remember 2003 when the Yankees came here for the first time since 1938 and the insufferable orgy of hype that preceeded it. Steve Rosenbloom quoted a writer to his column who asked "don't the Yankees play here every year?" Steve's sneering reply was "yes, but now they're playing a team that everyone cares about." And the Chicago sports media wonders why Sox fans don't like them.

Anyway, that response inspired me to create a character I had going on WSI for a while-the Sneering Chicago Sports Media Ass. I trotted him out a few times until the creation of the "Cubune" headline thread. I had great fun with it. Now, blah. The joke's stale.

I am looking forward to seeing a Chicago baseball team play in Boston for the first time since 1918. And to think that 1918 was the last time teams from these two great cities met in the postseason....*sigh*

It will definitely be a conflicting series for the strange hybrid known as Red Cub fans. This bizarre little sub species of Cub Dumb is unfortunately, something native to Chicago only. I can say with almost 99% certainty (and perhaps Fenway can back me up here) that there are no Bostonians that give a hoot about the Cubs nor do they wear combined Cub and Red Sox gear to games. I've been to Fenway Park over a dozen times and have never seen this phenomenon there. However, I see the "B" hat combined with Cubs jerseys and shirts in Chicago more times than I can count. You can call "Red Sox Nation" annoying, loud, obnoxious, or anything else...but I can definitely say that they are too busy with their cold war with the Yankees to notice anything the Chicago NL franchise is doing.

Cub fans are suave sophisticates who play in the most ornate shrine in the history of professional sports. Going to Wrigley, which includes dining and drinks before and after the game is a religious experience. OTOH the Sox play in the most dangerous urban neighborhood in North America. Their fans, what few of them exist are mostly inbreds that look, think and act like the Ligues. Oh, you're from Chicago? Surely you must love those Cubbies? That's the kind of thinking you have to put up with when you live far away in the hinterlands. This viewpoint peaked in 03, eased up a little after the Sox won the WS, and then returned as strong as ever in recent years. I gave up trying to defend our team and our ball park. Now, if the subject comes up I just say I root for the White Sox and leave it at that.

Honestly this happened when I went to the game Friday night with a lifelong Cubs fan, 2 minutes after we entered USCF, he said "OMG, this place is so much nicer than Wrigley Field."

The whole "isn't it special because it involves the special Cubbies" thing makes me puke.

There are about 120 different fraanchises across the 4 major professional team sports in North America...only ONE has been waiting over 100 years to win a championship...nothing cute and lovable about that. And NO, everyone is not rooting for the Cubs to get their championship, etc.

The ballpark IS unique, and every baseball fan should see a game there once, like going to Cooperstown. But for a day in, day out trip to the ballpark, I'd choose about 20 major league ballparks over Wrigley.

It's fine that their loyal fans are into the team...but the assumption that everyone else sees something special about their history of futility is annoying.

A lot of teams have nicknames attached to them. Yankees = Bronx Bombers. White Sox = Southside Hitmen. 80's Lakers = Showtime. Mid 70's Flyers = Broad Street Bullies. Nicknames, whether you love them, hate them or are indifferent about them, usually are supposed to reflect something about the team; A winning tradition, toughness, a high level of skill, or some sort of intimidation for the other team. I don't think fans of the Eagles or Steelers would refer to their teams as the "Eaglies" or the "Steeleries". I sure as hell know that nobody here would ever call the White Sox the "White Soxies", or "White Sockies". When you put an "ies" at the end of the word, you are making it sound cute and cuddly, like a puppy or a doll. "Look, grandma bought you a new dollie."

What does "Cubbies" mean ? What does that say about the fan base that refers to them in that manner ? This is a team that in another 3 months is going to be "celebrating" the 102nd anniversary of the last time they won a championship. Still the longest drought in all four of the pro leagues, by far. This is a fan base that, since 1984, has been looked upon by many people, as a casual one. One that doesn't really care or know that much about the game, it's all about the suntans, the beer, the flirting, etc. What happens on the field, eh, whatever. CUBBIES !!! WHOOOOO !!! Calling the team this cutie pie, fuzzy, nickname just continues to perpetuate that view. I've been told by more than one actual Cubs fan that they HATE it when the team is referred to that way, and that any real fan of any team would not like it if their team was constantly referred to like that either.

It's more of an affectionate term than anything. Calling them that doesn't explain to you or anyone else how I view the team, how much of a fan I am, etc.

How many teams out there have a "cutesy" name? That's one of the unique things about the Cubs. They aren't the Bears, which can handle a "Monsters of the Midway" nickname (well, when they aren't playing like ****). How would Cubs "Death Row Killers" sound? Doesn't quite go. But either way it won't change the perception until the Cubbies win their next WS. Actually, people will still whine and complain afterwards. :rolleyes:

Ya, you'd think they would have done something in 13 years. I wonder though what other teams haven't played each other in that amount of time (90+ years)? For me it's not the match-up it's the amount of time the two teams had had without seeing each other there.

I thought that when inter-league first started, they were going to rotate which teams they faced every year while keeping the "natural" rivalries every year. Cubs-Sox, Reds-Indians, Mets-Yankees, etc...

Yet somehow the Sox end up playing the Pirates every single year. Not that I'm complaining. :cool:

I've been to St. Louis twice: once in 2002 for Arch Madness, and the other time in 2008 for a Cardinals' game. The downtown seemed a bit better when I went in 2008. I do know they are doing some construction down there from the last time I visited. They were putting in an outdoor park right outside Busch Stadium, and some of the buildings were getting face-lifts. I think they're trying to make things look a bit nicer downtown.

I flew down there, and the whole thing (flight, hotel, ticket, food) cost under $500! I didn't even need to rent a car, as the Metro Link goes from the airport to downtown! It even goes to the Illinois side of the metropolitan area a little bit!

I was once proofing a sports page in a newspaper before it was about to go out to press and changed "Twinkies" to "Twins" in a caption. The sports reporter who was filling in for his editor argued that that was what people called the Twins. He was quite upset, although I only implied he should develop some journalistic standards.

I don't care that the Cubs are going to be in Boston for three games next year. What I want to know is if the White Sox will be in San Francisco for three games next year.

"Twinsies" sounds fairly insulting as well. I wasn't sure if "Twinkies" might be a derogatory term of endearment, the way Dodgers fans in Brooklyn called their team "Bums," but objective media shouldn't be using terms of endearment either.

Earlier this year, I went to a Wrigley game with my buddy who still is a diehard Cubs fan. We hopped on the L at State and Harrison St., and the phenomenon that I witnessed was absolutely unbelievable. A legion of Cub fans, all decked out in their Cubs gear, all flocked together - complete strangers all sharing a common love for a team. It was this ride where every single stereotype about the frathouse Cub fan was 100% accurate.

These complete strangers all were passing around a bottle of water... a bottle you know is not water. Who the heck shares their drink around a crowded train with complete strangers?

A few rowdy girls were onboard (one of them was a White Sox fan, wearing some type of combined White Sox/Cubs jersey -- don't ask). One of the girls, a Cubs fan, was literally shouting how she only dates Cubs fans, with the only exception being that she would date a Red Sox fan. I remember one of the guys on the train, then replying, "oh yeah, you gotta love those Red Sox," with the girl replying "I don't know how any Cub fan could not like the Red Sox."

I am not making any of this up. I didn't speak one word... I'm not getting my ass kicked by these Cub fans. My Cub fan buddy, stood there kind of quiet too. When we got off the L, I quietly asked him, "and you still wonder how on earth I could stop loving the Cubs?"

A North Side caller on the Danny Mac Show just called in to talk about Chicago basketball..."the Bullies."

suprised no one's talking about the proposed change to opening day.

opening day on a friday, and the last game on a wed.

with the playoffs starting on the weekend

Would this be across MLB? If so I would love it for the Sox to open on a Friday Night.

Would make it a lot easier for me to make it up from school. Sounds good to me.
