View Full Version : Cubs fans concessions

This doesn't fit into the thread about Cubs fans saying stupid things.

Today at work, my Cubs fans supervisors said that while he hates the Sox, he hates to even mention World Series and the Sox in the same sentence. But he lamented that a Cardinals-White Sox World Series would hurt him deeply.

As a long-suffering Sox fan, I won't admit to thinking World Series until ... well, maybe if the Sox are five outs away. But I saw his statement as a real concession the Sox are having a great season and the Cubs (why else would the Cardinals be in the Series?) are not in good shape. Just five weeks he was saying the Sox were going to tank in June, when instead of a swoon Chicago's first place Sox played .720 ball.

I got a kick out of it, anyway.

The other Cubs fan who sits a few feet away from me said that at the prospect of his two most hated teams (even Ron Santo hates the Mets more, and the Sox made him play SECOND base) playing in late October, he would move to Uganda.
