Here's a cute letter to the editor which appeared in today's "other" Chicago newspaper:
--------------------------------------------------------
Comiskey forever

I am a third-generation Cubs fan and therefore, quite naturally, delight in every White Sox misfortune. It would seem then, that I would be indifferent to the renaming of Comiskey Park [''White Sox get $68 mil. to change name to U.S. Cellular Field,'' news story, Feb. 1].

Strangely, though, that isn't the case. Instead, I find the name change offensive and I'm actually feeling a little sorry for the pathetic Sox fans (this is a new feeling for me). I guess I'm feeling the scuttling of the Comiskey name might somehow threaten my family's Cub loving/Sox hating tradition. Well, even though I know the name will never be officially changed back, my sons and I will forever continue to refer to the Sox stadium as Comiskey Park. It's something we can do to keep the tradition alive.

You know what sucks about that. I doubt if the tables were turned, there is no way any paper would print an article stating phrases like "pathetic cubs fans". It seems the perception around here will always be the "big bad trashy sox" and the loveable fluffy, fun-loving cubbies who try oh-so-hard!

God! That lites such a fire under my ass.

Better be careful how you tell him, otherwise he'll call the cops and the "story" will become the Scum Sox fan who faces criminal charges because he went picking on a nice, decent human being just because he likes to watch the Cubs.

It doesn't bother me so much.

1. The people who write this stuff are morons anyway.

2. I'd rather have a "big bad trashy" baseball team than a "loveable fluffy, fun-loving" baseball team any day of the week, because the big bad team is always going to beat the fluffy team.

Actually, you're referring to Rick Morrissey's column from February 2nd. Rick said: "Then again, maybe people will call it The Cell, where a father and son from Alsip can feel right at home. Where a certain chairman can find peace and not have to face those pesky fans."

That's how he closed another one of his wonderful columns!

If you want to e-mail Mr. Morrissey, RMorrissey@tribune.com

Put in a good word for me, too.

LOL! I like that idea...and he shouldn't be that hard to find, he is in the same college that I am in...and sCrUBs fans here at U of I are not that hard to find, they're usually the really stupid-looking ones that act like idiots when they see me wearing my White Sox jacket...

It's too bad that the DI (Daily Illini) would put this crap off as journalism...there used to be this Sox fan that wrote a column for the DI, but he graduated and would totally show what poor pathetic excuses sCrUB fans were in their excitement over their lovable team...If the DI had an opening, I would write for them (I used to write for a newspaper) in the Sports section and explain why the guy who wrote the article has no brain but they have no openings right now...

Actually, I think it could catch on or they would anticipate my next column to see if I would dare end my column again with "Champ out..." that could be my catch phrase (kinda like the reporter asking for advice from Bruce Willis in the movie "The Kid" about saying "y'all" in her broadcasts) and bring me over-the-top in becoming a famous world-renown celebrity journalist!

Here's a delicious tidbit from the column...

I kind of feel bad for them, to tell you the truth. Their own team sold them out. It's almost enough for me to invite the Sox fans I know to Wrigley to watch a real team at a real ballpark. Almost.

*****!!! I guess "real" in this idiot's mind must mean "real sucky." What's it been...30 years without back-to-back winning seasons?

Here's my email to Matt Whatever his name is.

Dear Matt,

Why do you say that whitesox fans are angry with this move? I forgot, you must be trying to kiss up to Morrisey, and the Cubune. If you would have listened to any sox fan, they would told you about how excited they are about the money for the renovations to the park. Also since your a cub fan, then why should you care about what the parks name is?
Ypu say that you object to naming rights, well I don't mean to break it to you, but Wrigley is a chewing gum, isn't it?

Also you said that there are only 3500 sox fans, well we averaged 20,000 fans last year wanting to watch the game. Finally, the last time I checked there were only 3500 cub fans, the other 30,000 are getting drunk, or touring the urinal.

In conclusion, research before you write your next article.

Another couple *cough* mistakes from the "Jackass Cubs Fan Du Jour"...

Remember when people would talk about homefield advantage and say things like "It's gonna be tough to go into Three Rivers and get a win," or "Candlestick is gonna be rockin'!" Well, it doesn't really work to say the same things while talking about Heinz Field or 3COM Park, respectively.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the Pirates played at "PNC Park" and the Giants played at "Pacific Bell Park." I think he might be confusing the Pirates with the Steelers (common mistake) and forgetting the current Giants stadium.

And, besides talking about something completely irrelevant in the middle of his article, if it deserves to be called that, his logic is rather flawed:

Although it may not feel like it outside, spring training is not too far away. That being said, I'll take the liberty of firing the opening shot in the annual Cubs vs. Sox War. Although this debate mostly consists of opinion until the season winds down, this year is different. This year, the White Sox have already been disqualified. Even if they win the World Series, even if they sweep a National League team that went 162-0 in the regular season, the Cubs will be the better team this year.

Figures that the year that it seems the White Sox have a decent shot at winning it all (compared with other years), some idiot decides to write that the Chicago White Sox winning the World Series this year wouldn't be a true victory, because of... eep!... A ballpark name change. Unless a corporately named stadium means that a team's history is completely erased, it seems to me that the White Sox have existed since 1901 (originally the Chicago White Stockings, which the Cubs of today were originally called before then) and that the past remains unchanged and the only change is a ballpark name, which is superficial. The team playing on the Southside of Chicago is still the Chicago White Sox no matter what their stadium is called.

What is Matt Coldagelli majoring in? Being an *******?

How sophomoric in every sense. Glad to see U of I is training the next generation of biased blowhards who hope and dream they are condescending enough to someday get published on the sub-par sports page of the Cubune.

Who was Wrigley again? Former Scrubs owner? Manager? Player? Oh no, that's right, he sold bubble gum. 80 years of corporate sponsorship on the Northside.

It would be nice if someone on the Northside knew anything about baseball. Unfortunately all they know how to do is scream for wife beater Sammy, get wasted at Murphy's and piss/puke on the neighbors lawn.

The only criticisms Scrubs fans can ever hurl at Sox fans is ballpark- or attendance-related. Never anything about baseball. Because Northsiders don't know the difference between a baseball and a beach ball. If they did, they could never be Scrubs fans.

So keep up the crap ass work Matt my friend. Cubune will be knocking down your door in 2 years with garbage like this!
