Sox fans are in first in the latest cubune poll. I can't begin to effectively vent this rage, so I will bottle it up for use this weekend.

bad blood, yesYeah, you're probably right. Now that my blood pressure has subsided, they'll probably run a cub poll tomorrow. But I'll still use it as fire for the weekend.

I've been listening to Sam Kinneson all week-Cubbie fans WILL cry.

This is total BS if there is not a Cub Poll this week. Just reading that pisses me off. Glad I will be there personally fri and sat to throw insults at Cub players and fans. :angry:

I thought they'd be too busy ignoring us to jam a poll.

I don't know why people would get irritated - it's good when bad attitudes are exposed like this, even if the Cubune doesn't have the best intentions (and believe me, it is quite deliberate - they're probably chuckling about it as we speak).

It makes me laugh to see the Cubune, with its pretenses of being a 'respectable' newspaper, turn into a trashy tabloid because of their little conflict of interest problem.

Also, isn't it funny how there is no 'nothing' option you can click on?

What a joke!!Yeah, I caught that as well. One loss against the team trailing us, we're 2 game out of 1st and suddenly we're "tumbling" towards 3rd. The Trib just can't stand the Sox are contending this year because it doesn't fit in with their grand Cubs plans. I hope the Cards sweep this series.

That is ridiculous!!! It really makes the Trib look low class, especially combined with that "Sox tumbling toward 3rd" headline. Let's see what kind of headlines they run this weekend if the Sox kick the snot out of their precious Cubbies.

What enrages me even more is if theydo a similar poll for the Cubs, which thy might to "appear" unbiased, the options will be nowhere as negative. For example, the options might be

What annoys you most about the Cubs?
-lack of parking around "our" beautiful, historic Wrigley Field
-the injury bug of '04 (Prior, Sosa, Wood, etc.) keeping "us" out of 1st for the moment
-wrong and hurtful accusations of steroid use of "our" superstars
-being so cute and cuddly that "we" get so many bandwagon-jumpers when all we want to do is watch great baseball at the Shrine.

except for the sox fans i'd think this poll was directed to the sox fans. (hmm maybe it is if you read around here enough) hey as long as the cubs are up tomorrow nothing wrong with it.

"Tumbling," may have been the wrong choice of a word but the Sox have dropped 5 of their last 6 and 11 of their last 17.

it is a relevent story. also relevent was the fact of the cubs being closer to last than first a week ago. oh well. any press is good press. not living in chicago, it is great to be able to read about them at all.

Preposterous! One Chicago team pointing out the obvious flaws in the other team's organization through national media?? I have never seen that before!

Geez guys. Don't take it so personal. Although, it is necessary to point out that any Cubs fan's argument about our ads attempting to antagonize their team as a source of pride are now null and void.

"Takes one to know one!!"

What's next, wedgies? Rear admirals?

This just in:

New story on chicagosports.com comparing Wrigley and the Cell in regards to children-friendliness. Overall a decent article, though obviously they go easier on Wrigley than the Cell, especially considering the Cell is far and away more child-friendly than Wrigley.

Anyway, the last line of the article is quite funny:

The parks couldn't be more different. At Cellular, there always is something to do. At Wrigley, it's all about the game.

Which game at Wrigley? The one where fans see who can throw the most trash on the field or how long someone can urinate outside the ballpark before the cops notice?

There needs to be an option for 'Sox ownership', unless that's what 'Sox management' stands for. That would be the best option by far.

What annoys me most about the White Sox and this goes back 25 years is they have talented clubs that get your hopes up by dominating during the regular season only to totally fail in September and October. As for the Cubs, I don't like Sosa, Prior and the jerk-off frat dudes that start fights in the stands. Makes going to Wrigley Field totally annoying. (I try to go to a Brewers/Cubs game once a year to root for the Brew Crew.)

My vote would go to the amount of trashy women at the ballpark. I've never seen so many scantily clad, can't take hom to mom 20-somethings in my life.

Man, if you just like the chest, then you're in luck...and if you don't like trashiness, you're not.

Of course, I'm not saying that all women at the Cell are said...but there are a lot.

I don't see the flubbies poll either. It must have come and gone pretty quickly while the Sox poll stayed up for several days.

Hey George Knue, I know you are reading this. I know you registered recently. I know we at WSI are deep inside your tiny little flubbie loving brain. I have one thing to say to you and that trashcan rag of a website/newspaper you work on/for:

YOU SUCK! :booty:
