Very subtle, sublime humor. Very anti-Red Sox/Yankees ads they ran last year with Alec Baldwin punching John Krasinski in the face. I dig it once, though, not sure how long it will stay with me.

I thought it was great. I love the dead pan humor.

I found it hilarious because it's exactly the kind of conversation I've had a million times with my friends who are Cubs fans. As they say, it's funny because it's true.

It's subtle, as the two are subdued and depressed: What Chicago baseball fans have to look forward to this summer! :tongue:

Roe Conn played the audio clip of this on his Top 5 @ 5:00. Listened to it on the way home, I loved it. Especially the dig the Parks & Rec guy got on about Blago...even though it was a shot at the Sox it was funny.

It reminded me of a little email rant we had going at work today with the Sox fans vs the Cub fans and one Sox fan emailed " at least we haven't been waiting 104 years for a Championship" and the Cub fan responded..."Hey it's only 103!" And the Sox fan replied...'I'm psychic...I can see the future and it (2012) ain't looking too good for you this year either."

Well, the World Series cannot end before October 14, so it will be 104 no matter what.

And that's why there shouldn't even be an argument between us and them anymore. We won the World Series, they did not. They have the worst streak in sports history going, we do not. So what do they have to say to us now? They have nothing to stand on.

No other team worldwide that has been in 1st Division since 1908, has not won it all except for them. It's not even close with the Indians having 40 years on them. I'm sure any Euro team has a similar lead.

That's my birthday. My 30th was the Bartman game. I was so bummed out. I was turning 30 and the Cubs were about to go to the World Series. Could it get any worse? Before blowing out the candles on the cake, everyone told me to make a wish. My future brother in law jokingly said "Marlins in 7." I got my wish. :D:

Just got to see this; I thought it was well done. Neither team "won" the debate; and if you can't laugh at some of the digs at your favorite team, you take it far too seriously.

Mobile Phone Field was great; as was the "Bush" league comment. And yep, this was what we do as Sox/Cubs fans. Some of the debates are just downright silly. The DH "Don't HaveTalent" was great too.

For those that have seen the MLB 12 "Cubs Win" ad, this is the Sox version.

Just curious, is this "Chicago vs. Chicago" ad a national TV spot or just something that is playing locally?

I just now saw the Chicago Vs. Chicago spot on MLB Network.

That does not necessarily mean it is nationwide. They can beam geographic-specific ads into your television if you're on cable or satellite since they have your zip code.

The bar from the beginning of the commercial is in Hoboken.

Should answer the question, however, if this is a national ad.

I caught Nick Offerman's act at The Vic on Saturday night. Outstanding.
