Article on ESPN's Page 2 about who fans hate (Link (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=schoenfield/050705)).

It says this about the White Sox:

Chicago White Sox (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=schoenfield/050705#): Cubs fans. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that White Sox fans have a gritty bitterness toward them while Cubs fans (well, most of them) have a sunny cheeriness, content to sit shirtless at Wrigley Field, downing a few beers in the bleachers and after the game, petting the dog that sits outside the firehouse on Waveland Avenue.

And this about the ire of the Twins:

Minnesota Twins (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=schoenfield/050705&num=2#): Ozzie Guillen. Since those of us in the world of mass media tend to ignore anything that goes on in the Upper Mississippi Region, unless it involves Randy Moss fake-mooning Packers fans, you may have missed the brewing rivalry between the Twins and White Sox. As the leader of the Sox, Ozzie isn't just an amusing quote machine who plays a fun brand of ball, but an insipid, dirty manager who can take his Ozzieball crap and go rot with the rest of the rats who live in the upper levels of U.S. Cellular Field.

Interesting, considering the things Ozzie had to say last year about the Twins... things like "We need to play the game more like the Twins do." He wasn't wrong.

When I lived in Minnesota back in the 80's, they hated Jim McMahon. Why? Because he had personality. Bud Grant, the old Vikings coach, was their hero and rold model. Bud Grant made Tom Landry look like Ozzie Guillen and Doug Collins all rolled into one. Minnesota is full of taciturn people who never show any excitement or emotions. Maybe it's the cold winters.

Of course, I laughed at them when Jimmy Mac joined the Vikes at the end of his career and they had to like him in the purple.:cool:
