I was in a restaurant ordering lunch today in Orland Park. I was wearing my
Sox jacket. A manager from this restaurant says to me "We don't serve Sox
fans here." All I did was smile at him. I felt like saying something but I know its not worth it. Obviously a pathetic flub fan. I do feel better I kept my composure instead of getting into an argument. I can't wait for the season to start.

What is that restuarant...I will never go there.

And the other day when I was in Carson's at the Orland Mall the cashier looked at my White Sox Pride Wristband and said, "oooo...I have a Cubs one." I said, "That's unfortunate" Then I left. (I know, that sounds a little Hangerish, but I get to have some sometimes...don't I?)

Orland Park is sort of "Sox" Country. There are a lot of Cubs fans because there are a lot of college kids out here. Not that they live out here, just that there are a ton of families with kids in college and they show that by being Cubs fans.

I would be dollars to donuts this guy was joking. I use that line in reverse all the time working in restaurants.

"We don't serve flubs fans here."

"Michigan Fan? Why didn't you tell me before I made the pizza, I would have used the bad sausage."

"Your boyfriend/girlfriend seems like a nice guy/girl, but he/she has terrible taste in clothing." - said to too the person with too many Packer fans to count.

I've never had anyone respond in anger. I always say it with a smile and exagerrated eye rolling and facial expressions. It's intended to start a discussion about sports, not to be a traumatic experience for the person I am talking to.

How you could take that seriously and respond so indignantly is beyond me. Trash talking is part of sports rivalrys. You either get it or you need to find another hobby that doesn't make you crazy. It's supposed to be fun and without rivalrys, being a fan isn't nearly so much fun. I know - you could call A&W HQ and raise a huge stink - or better yet, e-mail Brooks Boyer to see if the Sox will authorize a fan boycott...:rolleyes:

They'd have a website where everyone talked about how wasted they got the night before and how much they hate ShamME* and how great Prior is even though he's on the DL.

They'd talk about Dusty being all that and a bag of chips. Once every 4 days someone would mention a game and the score.

Yeah, thats exactly what I do. Being from Chicago and living outside of it is the worst when it comes to Sox/Cubs.

"Hey, you're from Chicago right?"

I never get bothered by good natured grief from Cub fans, as I'm always pretty quick to dish it out. I can respect anyone that's loyal to their team. I just have a problem with those so called die hard Cub fans who are really only fans because of the whole loveable loser, cursed, wrigleyville bull**** mystique.

My wife use to hate it when we would be out at a bar and I'd strike up a conversation with a Cub fan or fans at the bar. Give me a few drinks and I could be relentless. I remember being followed into a bathroom at a wedding about 20 years ago by a couple of large Cub fans, who evidently took offense at my Cub sense of humor and wanted to kick my ass. Priceless.

My typical response when learning someone is a Cub fan is something along the lines of, "damn, you seem pretty normal otherwise".

Snicker, and do my best Michael Jordan TSK TSK TSK. The cub
fan almost immediately is confused and anxious. These are people
who are used to someone saying WOO or YAYYYYYY in response
to their Foolish choice of clothing. A seed of doubt and the cub fan
quietly questions themselves, a little piece of their Dignity chipped away ....

When I got to my first command there was 100's of people I did not know. Most of them were higher ranking than me. My first quarterdeck watch (let people on and off the ship) this guy comes walking up with the most disgusting outfit on. A huge blue flubs jersey and oversized pants with a flub hat on.

Me: You can't leave the ship like that
him: Like what
Me: Like crap
him: *stares, lost*
Me: I am a Sox fan
him: *stares, lost*
Me: I was just kidding because Sox fans don't like the Flubs
him: I don't even like baseball, I am just wearing this because I like the color
Me: oh... *shakes my head*


Later on I see him walking around and he is a pretty nice guy. He also is 2 paygrades above me.

However, there are times when people in the wrong position do take it a bit too far. I remember a couple of years ago I was in a souvenir store on Michigan Avenue, and the lady running the store was very nice. She sold both Cubs and Sox souvenirs, and I complimented her on being fair to both teams. She shared with me a story that to this day was a little shocking...

She went into a souvenir shop in the John Hancock Building, and she noticed there was only Cubs merchandise on the shelves. When she talked to the manager about this, he told her in a very stern and serious tone, "If you want Sox stuff, go to the south side."

Now...I can understand people loving the Cubs and what-not, but it's one thing to own a neighborhood tavern close to the ballpark, and it's another to be the manager of a store within one of the world's most recognizable buildings. In situations like that, there's NO reason why there ought not to be representation from all the big-league clubs...regardless of what team the manager likes. Yes, it would've been nice if that manager was a Sox fan, but even Grandstand on 35th and Wallace (http://www.grandstandsox.com) carries Cubs merchandise despite being only blocks away from the Cell. Once again, a joke about liking whoever is one thing, but being an idiot over it is something else.

I've never gotten crap for wearing Sox clothing. I rarely get crap to begin with, but I've never really owned that much Sox gear except for the occasional hat.

Last summer, I was wearing a Sox jersey while shopping at Jewel, and an employee of the store actually walked up to me to tell me, "Sox suck." I was so stunned that I didn't have a snappy reply. I was just minding my own damn business, trying to buy some groceries.

Generally, though, I do enjoy the dirty looks I get from people while I'm out in public in Sox clothing. In this part of the suburbs, I'm definitely outnumbered by a wide margin. Some people actually do get offended when you tell them you don't give a rip about their precious Cubs.

Unfortunately, in my subdivision I am surrounded by SCrub fans. Both of my next door neighbors, a neighbor two houses down, a neighbor across the street from me, and the neighbor behind me are all Cub fans. But the good thing is, and I can't believe i'm saying this, they are cool Cub fans. Sure, there is the ribbing that goes on between us all, but it's good natured. They don't walk up to me and say "Sox Suck". We all have a little fun with the rivalry.

A friend of mine was visiting from Chicago, so we drove up to Vancouver, British Columbia for the day (about 50 miles from my home). My Washington State license plate is WHT SOX and my buddy was wearing a Sox hat. Coming back into the US, the customs agent looked at us and said: 'I am going to let you back into the US, but I have some bad news for you - I have to confiscate those license plates!' (Obviously a Mariner fan.) Anyway, we all laughed and he let us go on our way - with my license plates.

The whole secret is to smile as you say it and you have to really not mean it. I honestly stopped caring weather I "scored" with women or not about 6 years ago and they seem to really appreciate that. I swear women have a sixth sense that allows them to smell desperation miles away. :wink:

If you see someone in a Cubs hat or jersey just say:

"Hey that's really nice! Did it come with a matching red rubber ball nose and floppy shoes too? Where's Cookie and Whizzo?"

I find that to be a zinger that never fails.

If you find the conversation calls for you to be downright mean for some reason, try this one:

[Warning: if you're going to use the following line, you better know how to fight, have good health insurance, and bond money hidden in your house that a loved one can get to at a moments notice]

"Ahh... a Cubs fan, eh? Soooo... did your parents have any kids that lived, or are you the miscarriage that took?"

Guys, they're just baseball teams. Have some fun with it. This isn't a caste system. It's only baseball for crying out loud.

It may be onlybaseball, but I LOVE baseball and the White Sox. I hate my neighbors down the street that raise their Cubs flag. I will NEVER walk into Harry Caray's or a Cubby Bear. There's a place in town that makes great burgers, but since there's all Cubs stuff hanging in there I won't step foot in there and let my money be used for him to buy more Cubs crap. I do have a few friends that are Cubs fans, but they were my roommates in college and they're not huge consumers of Cubbie Blue Kool-Aid.

It may be only baseball, but I love it very much and the White Sox are a way of life to me

Hey I'm with you man. For instance a couple weeks ago, I went to the hospital because I was having a problem with right arm. Well, it turns out the doctor came in and saw my Sox hat and jersey and told me, "Well, it's probably caused by cheering for the wrong team."

I heard that and I took it one step further. I said, "Well (imitating him) they obviously didn't give you a doctorate in baseball!!!" and I walked out of there.

If the ensuing infection hadn't robbed me of the existence of my right arm, I'd write that hospital a terrible letter for hiring Cub fans doctors who obviously don't know right from wrong.

Good for you mang.
