You're not gonna believe this, Sox fans.

You're better educated, wealthier and more white-collar than the general public.

In short, you're almost identical -- gulp -- to Cubs fans.

Hard to swallow but it's true, according to thousands of in-depth surveys conducted by Scarborough of Sox and Cubs fans who attended games or watched them on TV or listened to them on the radio in the last year. In fact, Sox fans are remarkably similar to Cubs fans in nearly every demographic category measured by Scarborough, even down to political affiliation.

Maybe Cub fans are more similiar to us. We're not the only ones in town who loot and beat our wives, and beat up umpires, and beat up first base coaches, and slap Biggios wife, etc etc.

Welcome to last week

I did a search and did not see it posted. If it was already out there, then I apologize.

It is very interesting how similiar the fan base is of both organizations.

Where's the part about percentage of fans who cry about curses? Then we'll see the difference.
