I know this is a bit far fetched, but what if the Sox could be publicly owned like the Cheeseheads? Imagine the PR if we were really Chicago's team or IL's team. I know it would be an uphill battle against the Flubbie Fans (and possibly the biscuit and gravy eaters) but Daley's a southsider. Don't know about Blago though. Thoughts, comments, dirty limericks?

He probably means those from central and southern Illinois, those not from the City. My parents used to refer to people as that, and its remotely offensive, but there definitely is a different philosophy on biscuits and gravy when you leave the City.

Growing up far from the city, biscuts and gravy probably does mean that. But then, we always had names for "City folk" too esp. after the story broke years ago that some hunters from the city shot a dog downstate that they mistook for a deer!

Thanks Daver.
Nope, not in PR.
I know it's remotely offensive, but when I started going to school in Carbondale, it was like a whole other country! I had heard of grits, but was shocked one day to see someone behind me and put gravy onto his biscuits. Shocking! :o:
People "downstate" don't like that term. So, I came up with one of my own.
Haven't lived in the Chicago area in 10 years. My wife likes the B&G.
I never tried the B&G, but I doubt it beats Comiskey food. :D:
