Yeah, I'm sure all those pitchers are on the mount thinking "Oh man, I've got to bat next inning! What am I going to do?"

"Prior and Wood will combine for more wins than any 2 Sox pitchers."

Every time I hear a Cubs fan say something like that, I offer them the suggested bet I heard on "Mac, Jurko and Harry." The question is, who will have the most wins, Cubs "ace" Carrie Woods or Sox fifth starter Jon Garland. I take Garland +2.

I'm ahead 6-1 right now.:supernana: :supernana: :supernana: :supernana: :)

"No, Steve Buechele was a great 3B."

HaHa, I actually heard that one uttered before. It was from my English teacher in 8th grade, granted his name was Buechele too (no relation) but still. That's why I didn't really mind when we all got "unofficial" detention b/c somebody threw a piece of gum in his jherri curl white man's 'fro. HeeHee I still chuckle about that one.

My favorite stupid Cubs fan quote was:

Cubbie guy, "The Cubs are better than the Sox"
Me, "No they're not. But, how do you figure?"
Cubbie guy, "They have a better record than the Sox.
Me, "Ummm... No they don't, the Sox are 4 games above .500 while the Cubs are 8 games below .500"
Cubbie guy, "The Cubs are closer to first place in their division"
Me, "Hmmm, not quite. The Cubs are in third place while the Sox are in second"
Cubbie guy, "Well, that's cause the Cubs have played tougher teams while the Sox have beaten some lesser teams."
Me, "I disagree, while it's completely impossible to tell who has played the tougher teams, I do know 4 of the Sox victories were against the Cubs... as you say one of the "lesser teams they've beaten." Thereby proving my point with your own words that the Sox are better than the Cubs."

But really, I can completely see where he's coming from. After all, just like blacks were once denied service at lunch counters across the USA, Flub fans are consistently denied access to World Series games across the USA, too.

Wasnt Harry Carey with the SOX (duh)

didnt know Harry started it, just thought he popularized it cause he took it to the next level...

EDIT: Just found it!!

"In the mid-'70s, he often sang a rousing, Falstaff-enhanced "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" with fans seated near his booth. In 1976, Sox owner Bill Veeck decided to turn on the PA. Harry was unabashed. His singing before the bottom of the seventh became a Comiskey tradition."

so apparently Veeck decided to popularize Harry's drunken antics!

"Sold out > 10 fans."

"Wood is waaaay better than Buehrle."

"It doesn't matter that Buehrle beats Wood in every other stat, Wood has a .04 lower career ERA. Although he is in the NL, he has to face MUCH better teams so he is better than Buehrle."

"Patterson had 214 Assists last year and he is the second best CF in baseball behind Jim Edmonds."

"Last year's stats don't matter. It's only this year that counts."

"Derek Lee is so much better than Konerko. He was picked in the 4th round in my fantasy draft while Konerko was picked 10th."

"Frank Thomas is on steroids."

"Marte is one of the worst relievers in the league. Who bounces a ball in to end a ballgame?"

"Nomar is a gold glover."

"I agree that AJ is better than Barrett on defense, but Barrett crushes AJ on offense."

"You like the White Sox? Why don't you like the Cubs?"

"I'd take Dempster over Garland any day of the week. Garland blows and will never be a good pitcher. Dempster was an all-star."

"Hermanson sucks. He has never been any good. I've followed him his whole career."

"I like the Cubs over the White Sox because their colors are cooler."

"The Cubs will win at least 15 games more than the Sox. I will bet you 20 bucks on that."

"You guys are just jealous of our great tradition."

These quotes were all said to me by Cub fans.

That's true vivaozzie. The Sox started that back when Veeck owned the team and Harry Caray was the announcer. In the old days during the 7th inning stretch the ballpark organist would usually play Take Me Out To the Ballgame, and maybe another song like Roll Out the Barrel (vs Milw) or the theme from the Mickey Mouse Club (Nancy Faust used to do that on occasion)

Some of the crowd would join in and sing, but most didn't. It wasn't until one night Bill Veeck saw Harry leading the fans just underneath his booth singing along with Nancy and he got the idea to "mic" Harry the following night.

Once Harry started leaning out of the booth and leading the fans in the singing of TMOTTBG it really took off. It even got featured on This Week in Baseball. I could still hear Mel Allen saying "When you go out to the ballgame and stand for the 7th inning stretch....well nobody does it quite like the southside of Chicago and the Sox and Harry Caray!"

That story can be verified on the White Sox A Visual History on VHS a team history of the Sox that came out in 1987 or '88.

This is possibly THEE DUMBEST quote by a Cubs fan. This was posted on his Xanga site, so if any of you have Xanga accounts, feel free to go to his sight and bash him. Im actually VERY sure this is UICJason, considering he went to UIC, is a Cub loving moron, and is a leftist wacko.

Last and certainly least (for now): Baseball. WHAT THE HELL? Seriously. I've gone through denial, and I'm currently in the anger stage. I don't do acceptance. The Cubs have shown little offensive potential outside of their first game, and the pitching (except for Zambrano and Prior's 1 start), has been lakcing. And the Sox, well, those ****ers just won't lose. Their new slogan is, "Win, or die trying." Well, guess what. I saw them lose a game and nobody died. I was pissed. I've got a better slogan: Die. And those damn announcers are so annoying. There aren't two people in the world I hate more than them. It's bad enough their voices make me want to tear my ears off, but they make watching in silence a much better alternative with the awful play by play and commentary. I've found the most annoying terms to be: "Can of corn" (there is no CORN in baseball), "ducksnort," (*** is that anyway?) "He gone" (classic south side ***), and one I just heard tonight, "frisbie" referring to a pitch Takatsu throws. That's not a frisbie you idiots, that's a hanging breaking ball, and it's not an awesome pitch, it usually gets taken yard. And in the two games I've seen Takatsu pitch in, he's served up 4 of those, so they should really be a little less amazed by the pitch and be more scared of what happens after he throws it. Most pitchers try to avoid making that pitch, but for some reason Takatsu tries to make it. I'd rather have Hawkins closing games than that worthless sack of crap. I'm glad he plays for the White Sox.

I would rather have Mel Rojas come out of retirement to close than let Hawkins pich for my team. What a tool.

The fact that 'can of corn' annoys this guy further demonstrates the fact that cub fans know NOTHING about baseball. Ive heard the term 'can of corn' since I first burst on the scene in the little leagues. True, there is no corn in baseball, but there are 'can of corn' s.

1. The term "frisbie" was used all last year.
2. He just happened to catch the only 2 games where Shingo gave up his homers? One of which didn't matter since he still got the save.
3. He wants Hawkins over Shingo? Let's take a closer look:

Shingo pitched 62 innings last year and coverted 19/20 saves (95% success rate). He had an ERA of 2.31 and gave up 6 HRs (one every 10.3 innings).

Hawkins pitched 82 innings last year and converted 25/34 saves (74% success rate). He had an ERA of 2.63 and gave up 10 HRs (one ever 8.2 innings).

So lets review: Sox closer last year had a higher success rate (30% more successful) in converting saves, had a lower ERA and gave up home runs less frequently (25% less).

I think I know who I'd pick.

Shingo has converted 6/7 saves this year and Hawkings has only converted 4/6 saves.

...my aquaintance dismissed this by pointing out that "Waveland isn't a very good pitcher."

i started to laugh but realized that he was serious, that this die-hard cub fan thought Waveland Avenue was a reliever or something. i didn't correct him, as i figured there was no way to set him straight without humiliating him. looking back, of course, i wish i had.

I could probably post here every night, being surrounded by Cubs fans. Tonight I heard that Ron Santo was the greatest third baseman of all time. Because this Cubs fan was too young (even to see Ron Santo play second base for the White Sox), he changed his mind and said Ron Cey was the greatest third baseman of all time.

"Yeah," I said. "I remember how he put on a show in the 1969, 1970 and 1971 World Series. Oh, wait, that was Brooks Robinson."

My supervisor, the other Cubs fan, said he would have to go with Brooks over the Penguin. Then when he checked scores on his computer, he asked, "Why does St. Louis keep winning?"

"Because they're juiced," the first Cubs fan answered.

I have to put up with this crap three time zones away from Chicago.

"Kerry Wood is much better than Mark Buehrle because Buehrle can't throw 100 MPH and Wood strikes out more guys."

I heard almost the same thing today from a friend of mine about Wood. He said something like, "Wood is a way better pitcher than anyone on the sox."

I asked him why. He said it's because he beat Roger Clemens last time he faced him, and no one on the sox is as good as Clemens.

I asked him about why he's only ever won 14 games in a season, and he said it's because he plays for the Cubs.

I asked him why his ERA is over 6 right now, and he said it's early.

I asked him why he spends so much time on the DL, and he said that doesn't matter, he still has way more talent.

I asked him how that talent helps his team win games if he's on the DL and isn't pitching, and he changed it back to "he's still way better than anyone on the sox. He's a future hall of famer. Everyone knows he's that good".

Impossible. Just plain impossible.

LOL. I have a "Waveland" related story to tell too. During a Sox/Cubs game in 2000 at the Urinal, Konerko took a ball very deep that went out on to Waveland and was just foul by a few feet. The Cub fan behind me said "Wow, he hit that one on to Waverley Avenue!" I thought I had heard him wrong but he said it again to his friend who wasn't paying attention (surprise). Waverley Ave. apparently had replaced Waveland without my knowledge.:D: My Sox fan friends and I mockingly call it "Waverley Avenue" in honor of that stupid Cub fan. The story doesn't end here though, he later referred to Cubs relief pitcher Kyle Farnsworth as "Syle Farnsword". I about lost it at that point. It was all I could do not to laugh out loud when I heard that one.:cool:

...this was a good one from one of my co-workers here in Philly:
After the 2003 Game 6 debacle, the next day at work he asks me, "Man, have you ever seen anything like that?"
I don't recall exactly what I said (after my initial outburst of laughter), but I'm fairly sure it included the words "1984" and "1969", among others...

Good point. Having had tickets to the World Series in San Diego in 1984, the ground ball Ryne Sandberg lost in the sun thrilled me much more than the Bartman incident.

Friend: Wood is so much better than Buehrle

Me: And why is that?

Friend: He had over 20 strikeout in a game

Me: So what, Buehrle has pitched over 200 innings in the last four years

Friend: Has he ever struck out 20+ people in a game

Me: Never i think

Friend: Talk to me when he strikes out 20+ in a game

Me: Talk to me when wood wins 15 games in 1 season

this was from a cub board from someone relating what happend during a game

"This girl sitting next to me was hilarious. She thought only five batters could hit per inning. But my favorite question of hers was when she leaned over in the second and asked me: "Which one is Nomar?"

My brother in law is a Cubs fan, and I saw him yesterday for Mother's Day at the in-laws (who are also Cub fans). I never start the discussion regarding the Cubs and Sox, but I get dragged into it. here goes:

BIL: How much longer can the WS keep this up?
Me: Hard to say - in spite of no offense we're doing pretty well. When Frank comes back and Konerko hits, we'll be in business.
BIL: That Podsenik and Iguchi combo are a joke.
Me: (reaching for Sun Times) Joke? Podsenik leads the majors in SB. Iguchi's hitting over .330!!
BIL: When Nomar comes back, the Cubs will be fine.
Me: If he comes back....(I started to say due to the injury, I think it would take longer, but he interrupted)
BIL: He'll be back. They signed him again, didn't they?
Me: So what's up with Wood?
BIL: You always gotta bring that up don't you?
Me: Hey - I was watching the damn Cubs game cuz I'm in this house. I asked you to check to Sox score, and you turned on golf. YOU started this discussion, not me.
(one hour later, he was gone. I turned the game on and caught the 8th and 9th inning - I called him on his cell phone to inform his that MLB's best record went up one W)
BIL: You wasted my time for that news?
Me: Not as much as you wasted mine with our chat before.

Then I hung up.

This is true...

"The Cubs are more the South Side blue coller team, and I've always seen the Sox as the North Side rich stuck up team."

Oh, I have some material for this thread:

On a Sox fan's complaint about the Cubune's "Somber Streak" headline:
Dude, Zaun could have died. He could barely breath as he was carted off. Show some respect. That is not cool.


The all time classic:
SOX SUCK

And the all time profiling classic:
Of course, Cubs fans just bitch about how bad they are at established businesses, while Sox fans actually try to do something about that (try to beat up Juan Gamboa- the 1ST BASE COACH for the Kansas City Royals or try to go after the umpires who are EX-MARINES).

I'm pretty sure this was a Flub fan.

I was at Comiskey one night a few years back when the following conversation took place behind me:

Man #1 (looking at the out-of-town scoreboard): The score of the (I forget which game he was commenting on) game is 72-55. Wow.

Man #2: Those are the jersey numbers of the pitchers in the game.

Man #1: Really?

You can point out that Kerry Wood never struck out more than 20 in a game

"Seems things might be picking up. Dempster appears to be becommming comfortable as closer. Our pitching is steady and the bullpen has done its job. An improved run production on offense and this team will be back in it. Plus we are getting Walker back off the DL. Look out NL."

Look out NL? McLendon single-handedly gave the Cubs the first game after they let Lee hit, who was 3 for 3 that game, and not intentionally walk him. The second game Dumpster almost blew the game after he loaded up the bases...

I just started working at a company in Libertyville and EVERYONE there is a cubs fan...I haven't even been there a week.

Today:
Co-worker:"Looks like the Sox got lucky again last night."

Me:"It's not luck when you win your close games. The difference between the Cubs and the Sox is: When the Cubs bullpen gives up runs, they lose. When the Sox bullpen gives up a run, the Sox score again and win."

Yesterday:
Co-worker:"The Sox have been really lucky winning when they don't score runs."

Me:"The goal isn't to score lots of runs. As long as you score more runs than the other team, you win. The sox score two runs and the other team scores 1. The white sox win. The cubs score 5 runs, the bullpen alone gives up 6 runs. The cubs lose."

I'm sorry if I misspelled the name. The Cubs fan probably couldn't spell it, though, and I have better things to do than to look it up.

From a friend who is a flub fan:(she said this during the recent cub/sox series at Pigley)"The cubs have a better starting rotation than the Sox"

and as the Alohas were leaving Pigley after Saturday's game (that the Sox had won), some flubby fan said "Sox suck!" to which our flub fan friend said, "hey, they just beat us 2 in a row", and the guy says, "yeah but they still suck"

So last Saturday CLR01 and I were at BW's in Algonquin to watch the Sox, chow on wings and chug some brews. We got there and made the bartender keep the channel for the Sox game on the big screen (even though it was on Fox, I still had a gut feeling if we hadn't requested the Sox game the people would have turned on some college game). So, we're watching in the first inning and Garland gives up a run and fat, idiot Flub fan sitting across the bar room yells "allright Cleveland, way to go Browns!!!," not once, but twice.

So immediately CLR and I go into attack mode and start ripping on the moron, asking when the unlovable losers were going to play the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers. As expected, the fat dumb waste of oxygen had no response b/c he realized that he had just made a tremendous fool of himself.

Furthermore, as expected, when the Sox retook the lead, moron and his group were dead silent, even to the verbal jabs sent over from CLR and yours truly Risk, and in typical Cub "fan" fashion, preceded to leave early around the fifth inning. Truly, stupidity and weakness are the two traits inherent with being a follower of the cult to which is the unlovable losers.

Go Browns, ***?

I was at the game on Sunday, and some MORON wearing a Cubs hat and get this an American League Jersey! He was yelling lets go Cleveland! Perhaps he was a transplant from Cleveland and got sucked up into the Flubby nation.
I don't know, but I'm inclined to think that the 3 year old girl sitting next to me new more about baseball than this idiot!:D:

If we arent playing the Flubbies, why do their fans always show up in Sosa gear? Just one more reason to hate the Scrubs. Some clown was trying to tell me at the game I went to against Cleveland on Saturday, that the NL Central is better than the AL Central! I tried to explain to him how bad the cubs were and they were in second. BLAH, talking to Cubs fans is like talking to a retarded Dog.
