SportsCenter just did a really cool piece on sports in Chicago, about how the Bears and Hawks are looking up, about how the Bulls are sucking and how all those ex-Cubs won the World Series. They had a stock-market-esque chart showing the Bears Hawks and Cubs rising and the Bulls falling. Of course, the Sox were not mentioned AT ALL in the piece. The other 4 teams got major play (even though the Cubs play was for guys who aren't even with the team anymore). Amazing. Guys, being a fan shouldn't be so frustrating...

What do you expect from ESPN? They would contract the Sox if they were Selig.

Well the whole thing was teams that are playing or played recently. The Bulls, Hawks, and Bears are playing now. The ex-Cubs played recently. They didn't even mention Cubs without the word "ex-" before it.

Except when they threw that Cubs logo up on the screen. Besides, the Sox have won more games in the past 5 weeks than the Bulls have...

Still would've been nice to have the Sox mentioned.

Espn loves the Bears and hates the White Sox.chris berman never fails to praise the Bears and also never misses taking a shot at the White Sox.I guess its the Reinsdorf thing from the 94 strike year.A lot of lifelong enemies were made that year.Any way i just can't believe whats happening with the Bears & Hawks,THIS IS GREAT!!!!
