Wilbon wants to trade Baker for Ozzie to shut up the crybabies on the north side. Nice!

Wilbon wished Ozzie would manage the Cubs.


They seemed to love what Ozzie's been doing, mentioned how hot we are, best record in AL, better than the whining going on on the north side, etc.

Wilbon says the Cubs and Sox should trade managers (implying Wilbon's a Cub fan I assume?)

Wilbon loves the tirade (against Maggs), Kornheiser not so much.

Worse, he's a Cub fan who grew up on 79th street.

he's a fencerider. Worse than being a side-jumper.

He's probably been to what one Sox game in his life? And it was probably at the Urinal. But yeah the love from the national media is so nice to see!:supernana:

According to a story in Sports Illustrated in April 2003 on Chicago baseball, author Rick Telander spoke with Wilbon. Wilbon said he and his family have been staunch Sox fans since the day back in the 50's when Wilbon's father was turned away from a Cubs game trying to see Jackie Robinson play.

I can look the story up if you want the exact quotes (I have it on file...) but basically Wilbon said the Cubs were racists, deliberately turning away black fans. Since that day his father never saw a Cub game again and would take his sons including Michael to Sox games. In the story Wilbon said the Sox are more like what Chicago is... catering to all types of fans.

I got the sense that he likes both teams but hasn't forgotten that day with his father and leans more towards the White Sox.

Wilbon is a Cubs fan anyone who watches the show would know that, he occasionally would come on with his Cubs jacket, and talk Cubs, curses and all that crap!

If Michael Wilbon isn't a Cub fan, boy, he sure couldn't have fooled me. That, or he's a complete tool.

Wilbon was wearing a throwback cub jersey on opening day. I think that definitely makes him a cub fan and a complete tool.

I remember Wilbon the day after the Bartman incident and I was laughing up a storm. I was listening to the radio driving from DC to Philly and Kornheiser was baiting Wilbon to talk about it. Wilbon didn't bite until Kornheiser had the temerity to suggest that the Cubs could win Game Seven. It was that point that got Wilbon to say, "No. If you know ANYTHING about the Chicago Cubs, you know that it's over." And he was so right.
