That guy Derrick from the current season of Road Rules.

Seriously - We sat behind him at the game yesterday and girls kept coming up and asking him if they could take a picture with him. I wouldn't have thought that that show would have so many groupies.

Jordan is more of a Chicago fan. Sox fans include Bernie Mac, Mandy Patankin (Alien Nation, Dick Tracy), Dennis DeYoung of Styxx and Bill ranic of the apprentice.

I heard an interview with Bill Rancic and he said he's more of a Cubs fan. He used to be neighbors with Magglio, so he roots for both teams, but he's always been a Cubs fan.

Jenny McCarthy is a Sox fan, if I'm not misktaken. :bandance:

Muddy Waters was a huge Sox fan.

Though he's assumed to be a Cubs fan because of his Harry Caray impersonation, actor/comedian John Caponera is a Sox fan.

There's some pics of Tupac, Ice Cube, 50 Cent, and Tom from Blink 182 in Sox gear on this website.

Don't forget Jay Mariotti, he's A-list material and likes both teams equally as much.

He has had seats right next to ours at a couple sox games and they have been against the yankees who he was rooting for. So i'm pretty sure he's a yankees fan.

Though Tillman grew up in Texas, he was born in Chicago and went to kindergarten on the South Side (according to the Bears' site).

Ben Gordon, Luol Deng and Chris Duhon all are most likely Sox fans.

When goofy-ass overrated Coach K told them "You must be Cub fans..." Duhon said..."I don't know about that."

That should qualify them to sing "Take me out to the ballgame" at the shrine.

Another celebrity fan (though not a major celebrity) is Harry Smith of CBS Morning Show. Earlier this year he was in town and interviewed the mayor. On the desk in front of them was a Sox hat and a cub hat. While talking about their Sox fandom, Harry took the Sox hat and covered the cub hat. CBS claimed that Harry did it without even thinking about it, but we know better. Way to go Harry!

Right. He went to Northwestern and actually spent more time at Wrigley than Comiskey. Still, he always roots for the White Sox and gives Golic grief since Golic is a big Jnidians fan.

I've got a better idea; The 750 threads with the words "Bernie Mac" in them should be merged into one giant thread and automatically closed and deleted. THEN we should load some software on here that can sense when the phrases "Bernie Mac" "Celebrity Sox fans" or "Famous Sox fans" are about to be entered so it can emit a short (but powerful) burst of electricity into the fingers of whoever even CARES what the hell Bernie Freakin Mac thinks about the White Sox.

The whole appeal of the White Sox to me is that we are not "HOLLYWOOD." People in Hollywood just screw everything up and cheapen the game of baseball. I am personally glad that we do not depend on the antics of people in Hollywood to get people to our baseball games. We win games to put butts in the seats, not get 81 actors/celebrities to sing the national anthem during the seventh inning stretch in an attempt to take away from the fact we are losing year after year. Go White Sox! The team of the common man/true fans of baseball.

Oh yeah, Cusack supports "the city of Chicago." This is a cheap way of saying that he is NOT a Sox fan. Sox fans do not support the Cubs and Sox. It is one or the other.
