View Full Version : Why the Chicago National League Ballclub, Inc., is dispicable

As White Sox fans, our feelings toward the Chicago National League Ballclub, Inc., have always been less-than-genteel. The Chicago Cubs are our crosstown rival, and they are our social enemy. This dislike for the Cubs among us dates back to generations long before ours, but this discord is at an all time high. The reasons for this dislike are multifold, and we will not be going into all of them this evening.

I'll continue this by describing what disquiets me more about the Chicago National League Ballclub, Inc. What bothers me this most is the attitude they have along with their allies in the media. They believe, in their own minds, that their s*** don't stink. Chip Caray's little "HE GONE!" jab at Hawk Harrelson is a mere example of this.

A better example of this is Cubdom's worship of one Samuel Sosa. I know fully well that I am preaching to the choir is saying this, but it seems irrational to me why anyone can have a positive thought about this scumbag. Sosa is a selfish, egotistical showboat. The man was caught using a corked bat and lied about its usage being an accident, and I have to believe that his claims of Flinstone Vitamins chisling his physique are bogus. Sure, no concrete evidence of anabolic steroid use by Sosa has ever surfaced. Nevertheless, circumstantial evidence has suggested that Sosa's body expansion was not on the up-and-up. I cannot understand why this dope continues to get a free pass not only from his lemming followers but the media. The only reason Sosa's s*** does not stink is because he is a Cub. If he were still a member of the White Sox, that s*** would stink from here to Nome, Alaska. Better yet, I think Frank Thomas has been hit with a ton of more s*** from the media over the years, and Frank hasn't done one-tenth the nonsense that Sosa has. If there is poetic justice in the world, Showboat Sammy will eventually "get his" if you catch my drift.

As members of the White Sox fandom, we are a persecuted minority. Our ballpark's neighborhood is labeled as "unsafe" despite the fact that our ballpark neighborhood's crime rate is lower than the crime rate around the Shrine. Our fans are stereotyped has having an inferiority complex because some among us complain about this stuff and others wear "CUBS SUCK" or "CORK" shirts. Now I have advocated over the years that we should not wear such shirts and wear "WHITE SOX" apparel instead. Nevertheless, how come Cub fans who wear "SOX SUCK" or "Chicago's Greatest Disasters: The Fire, The Floor, and The Sox" shirts are given a free pass?

It is yet another example of the Cubs' s*** that don't stink. Reports of Sox fan hatred toward the Cubs is held up high by the media for all to see, yet this same media gives a perspective that Cub fans are "holier than thou" and incapable of hatred of us. Give me a GD break! They spew a ton of hatred against us! Just listen to them on sports talk radio for Christ's sake!

What I said you know already, but I had to get it off my chest. The more I observe what goes on, the more convinced I become that our fans are better baseball fans. We certainly have shortcomings of our own, no doubt, but we're honest.

Sox Pride.

No, not really. But the loss did allow me to vent a little.

I guess the only solution is to WIN IT ALL! Then the North Side-Boston lovefest will HAVE TO STOP! Imagine the repercussions:

:boston
"What a fluke! This White Sox team caught lightning in a bottle! Shennannigans!"

:blockhead
"What he said!"

:chimp
"This White Sock Team CLEARLY played over their heads!"

:moron
"I was on this bandwagon all along! What a great team! What a great fanbase! What a great owner!"

Please, God, let us win it all. Then we can tell all the bandwagoners to SHOVE IT!

The Floor? What's that?Though it's an aptly used word and nicely foreshadows the contents of the thread, how come you didn't try the two-fer and comment on "dispicable"?

Just wondering...

:?:

No offense, Viva, as I fully agree with your post, despite the grammatical and/or spelling errors.

a typo. he meant "flood".
There were shirts for sale around Wrigley with that saying on them:
The 3 Worst Disasters In Chicago History
Da Fire
Da Flood
Da Sox

....nope, I didn't find it clever either...

"Chicago's Greatest Disasters: The Fire, The Floor, and The Sox"

I saw someone wearing that shirt last night at the Taste. I did have a good chuckle because someone would actually go out in public, other than a Cubs game, wearing a shirt like that. I always find it funny when people wear an "Anti" shirt out in the general public, other than for a specific event related to the topic of the shirt. Don't they realize how silly they look? That being said, there is nothing even remotely funny about that shirt. Is it just me or is not that a rather pointless shirt? The Sox a disaster? HUH? I just don't get it. Maybe, it is my Sox fan jealousy of the other team in town that prevents me from laughing hysterically. Now, on the other hand, the Cubs and disaster go hand-in-hand. In fact, if you look up disaster in the dictionary, there is a small Cubs logo.

I was out in public today wearing my 1917 Sox replica jersey. In fact, I was at Jewel, buying some groceries and minding my own damn business when an EMPLOYEE OF THE STORE walked up to me and said, "Sox suck!" It's unbelievable how these Cub fans react when their team has even the slightest bit of success. I just hope and pray that this is our year, and we can finally silence the legion of Sox-haters out there.

Thanks. I wasn't being sarcastic; I really couldn't figure out what "The Floor" was.

Did you guys see that piece the other night on Fox local news, where Tom Waddle began by going on a rant on how he doesn't understand the hatred between the fans? I think Tamron Hall and Mark Suppelsa were on the set and were looking at him with a blank stare. :o: He was saying how he doesn't like it, and he'll never understand why Sox fans hate Cubs fans and vice versa.

Nothing would make me happier than for the Sox to go to the World Series, and one reason is that the media would HAVE to give them a lot of ink, especially if the Cubs fade. Then we can hear all the Cubbie fans whine about biased media coverage. Imagine if they had a party at Murphy's Bleachers in October and no one came with a camera to record those morons. And Mariotti would be so messed up with that, well, he might just keel over. Ah! Another reason!:wink:

1929 is a bit too far back for many, but the Cubs blew an 8-0 lead going into the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 4 of the Series that year. The Philadelphia Athletics put a 10 spot on the board that inning, and instead of squaring the series, put the Cubs in 3-1 HOLE.

All I could think of when reading this was Lou Brown saying that and then unveiling a cardboard cutout of JR in a leopard print dress.
