I LOVE YOU!

I just spent the last 20 mins looking for this picture on the internet. Thank you!

Is that real, or photoshop?

If it's real, I fully expect to hear about how much classier the Cubs organization is for congratulating their cross-town rivals.

my friend lives across the street from Wrigley and called me while the sign was up, so its the real deal. It's either classy on their part, or really patronizing...

I saw the picture in the Cubune, so I'm pretty sure it's real, too. Damn nice to have a linky to the e-version for MASS DISTRIBUTION!!!

You didn't show the rest of it.

Right after that, it scrolls and says "asswipes!"

My thoughts exactly. Maybe a little of both?:?:

It was disappointing that the US Cellular Field sign didn't say "Congratulations Chicago Cubs" in 2003

Make sure your buddy takes another picture when the sign reads "Congratulations World Champion Chicago White Sox"

As much as I hate the Cubs and their fans, I gotta admit it's a classy gesture.

I also remember that when the Cubs clinched the Division in 1989 in Montreal, the White Sox showed the final out and subsequent celebration on the mound on their Diamondvision scoreboard at old Comiskey Park.

It is an example of "Pennant Envy."

One thing to keep in mind, Mark McGuire, their version of Brooks Boyer, grew up a Sox fan.

It is pretty cool, actually. I didn't think they would put something up like that.

Looks like a class act to me.

Believe it or not but I heard a radio interview of Glenn Beckert on the Score a month or so ago and he follows the White Sox on tv and is pulling for them to win the WS.

Let's give credit where credit's due. This is a classy move ... good for them.

Now let's go out and win the World Series and take back this city from them.

It's to remind their braindead fans that Chicago's "other" baseball team clinched the division, not the Cubs.

"Hey dude! Did you hear? ESPN said Chicago just won the division!!! Go Cubbies!"

Yes, it is a classy move, but I think they understand that Sox success will not damage their popularity. Sox v. Cubs attendance/popularity stories often miss the main point, which is, the City of Chicago and the surrounding areas support both teams, and have done so for a very long time. This is not a case of the town not being big enough for the two clubs and only one team can be left standing.

I'm not sure that one club's success hurts the other club's success at all. It is similar to when there is a hit movie out and everyone starts talking about going to the movies and pretty soon attendance and interest in movies is up. I think "buzz" about baseball is good for both Chicago teams. Obviously, better for the team that is generating the buzz, but I really have come to doubt the premise that Cub success is contingent on Sox failure, or visa versa.

Quite honestly, one part of me would hate to see the Sox become too popular becasue it would make tickets hard to get and more expensive. I don't mind being a member of a smaller, but mightier, fan base.

This is a little old, but for those who didn't see Wrigley Field last week I posted pics I took in the wallpaper section on White Sox Interactive of the scoreboard. Pretty great.

Go Sox!

All the cub fans I know have already used this an example of how classy the tribune organization is. I guess spreading slanderous, stereotypical information about Bridgeport and the White Sox fan experience via their newspaper was just as classy. But hey, that sign makes us even. I'm actually surprised that tribco didn't yield to the demands of it's "fanbase" and congratulate the Astros instead.
