Decided to have a cold drink and watch game 7 last nite at a local
watering hole. Kind of fun to see about 10 people in BoSox hats
and jerseys, including a fella who was unshaven, with a black wig
and a Red Sox jersey and hat looking like a CroMagnon Johnny Damon.
As the game wore on, people were cheering annoyingly and getting
a bit silly with the "throw it back" chants for NY foul balls.

For some crazy reason, I couldve swore I heard "come on cubbies!"
I simply watched the game, and the BoSox got a hit and everyone
Cheered and Whooped and It was exciting, but I remember thinking
everyone cheering just a bit too loud for some foreign team and
then I heard it ...."Cubbies Cubbies!"

I laughed loudly towards the group and YELLED at them that the Cubs
werent playing ...but it was the Red Sox. They mockingly chanted
louder, "cubbies cubbies, lets go cubs!" I was Aghast.
I asked the guys if they were really Red Sox fans, and Johnny Damon
said no.......they were Cub fans, but that "the red sox are like us,
losers". All the "red sox " fans started saying "Your just mad
because the SOX arent in the playoffs" and all started laughing at me.
:angry: :angry: I couldnt believe this was happening.
"Sure the SOX arent in the playoffs, BUT NEITHER ARE THE CUBS!
those are the REDSOX!" finally, someone in the group said
quietly to "let us have our fun".

None of the huge group were actual Red Sox fans, but cub fans
pretending that their team was playing on the big screen. unbelievable

Henry, I encountered the same thing at Stanley's Tap on Lincoln and Armitage. It was packed, and many were in Cub gear. After Bellhorn hit his homer, the chants of "Cubbies! Cubbies!" were quite loud.

Needless to say, the fun never ends for us Cub-haters. I shall be going out to purchase a hat of whatever team wins tonight and rooting against the Red Sox.

I HATE CUB FANS! :angry:

The Red Sox are not losers, they make the playoffs every single year, they just get owned by the Yankees.

The Cubs on the other hand, had not had winning back to back seasons since the 70's till this year, they are the only LOSERS.

Man Im glad I watched the game at home.

Lets go Cardinals! Now that would really piss off all the Cub Fans.

Then when the Cub Fans get mad and ask us why we are cheering for the Cardinals we can say, they are just like us, they hate the Cubs. :redneck

There are some here who dont like when one group of Fans makes fun
of another group of "fans". Im sorry. In this case its warranted.
Ive said it before, Ive said it 1,000 times. Cub Fans are the Dumbest
Fans in Baseball ....... ever.

A Cub fan friend of mine told me yesterday that any Cub fan rooting for the Red Sox was an idiot. No Cub fan should want their team to be the only one "cursed". I found that to be an interesting notion.

I was rooting for the Yankees, but now I'll be pulling for the Red Sox in the
World Series. I hate them and the indulgent self-pity of many of the fans,
but I'm now looking on the bright side. At least they'll no longer talk about
that infernal curse BS. Anyone who believes in it can then go back to bel-
ieving in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Plus, remember that the Red
Sox are coming to Chicago for the first time ever next year. Perhaps, if
Boston wins it all this year, all the super hype about Baseball's two lovable
storied cursed teams!
will have a lot of the edge taken off it. Ya think? I think so. :D: :D:






Sneering Chicago Media Ass here. No one still cares about your team, losers.
Can't wait for Boston's first ever trip to Chicago next year. If only...if only...
it would've happened this month!!!:whiner: :whiner: :whiner:

Ahem. Out. **sneer sneer**

Funny how Cub fans can't realize they were the suckers in the Nomar deal with thier beloved Red Sox................Some of the dumbest fans in baseball I have to agree with Hangar on this one!

That is so typical flubbieland. I have begun to hate the Red Sox. The one the I do know. We have not been put into the secret losers club. The last I looked we are as long and suffering as those 2 teams but we never even mentioned anywhere near those teams. I am happy for it. I hope the Red Sox choke. I am sorry. Long live the Curse. Go Buckner!!

And even though you don't enjoy Hangar's reports, you seem to find every thread where he tells his stories just so you can put him down. I like Random Thoughts, and I think they are quite amusing. Apparently you do not. So quit letting us know EVERY time a new Random Thoughts thread is created.

I lost any possible respect for Red Sox fans when Buckner was forced to move from Boston when years later, he and his family were still getting harassed. Classless. The guy had a pretty good career, and was a big contributor to the Red Sox that year. But people still harassed his family.

Thanks.

I'm here every day - and I don't quite get it either...Reminds me a bit of Ralph and Alice Kramden.

I just stay out of it - and enjoy the fun! :-)

Last I heard he was in Idaho, sharing a three-flat with Don Denkinger and
Steve Bartman.

And how about when Buckner got together with Mookie Wilson and started
to pose for pictures and sign memorabilia? Remember that? The Red Sox
fans howled in such pain. How dare Buckner make money off of their pain.
He is the worst human being ever ever ever!!! Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
