I don't know if this will become as popular as the 'Write the Cubune Headline' thread, but we will have a long season of stupid comments coming from that group who just has to be seen and heard when a team or event become popular because of their success. I cannot stop laughing!!

We are talking about, of course, 'The Bandwagon Jumper'!

Some of these are so funny, we have to keep a record. So I will start with my two favorites from today:

'They've never drawn well here. They opened this place right around the time they tore up the Ryan last time, they got off on the wrong foot'.

'How many will this place hold (guy answering a question)? 55-56,000, last I checked. They have more seats now than when they opened because they filled in the runways here in the OF'.

"What the hell... we don't get to see White Sox batting practice, they win a World Title and now they are special or something!"

"Who's this Cin-TROUNE guy...some rookie?"

"When I go to Wrigley..."

"The Sox were smart when they drafted Konerko."

"The Joan is a terrible place to watch a game."

A question was asked to me today, "Who is your favorite White Sox?" My response was "Man Soo Lee." I got, "Who the the hell is that, some minor leaguer?" I just thought that most Sox fans would know who the best bullpen catcher in baseball was!

I have more respect now for the cubs fans who have remained cubs fans. It shows they have some integrity to stay with their team instead of jumping on the bandwagon. I have no respect for these new fans who try to pretend they are lifers. UGH!

Only White Sox fans know the names of the bullpen catcher, bullpen manager, head trainer, strength and conditioning coach, pitching coach, head groundskeeper, and clubhouse manager.

Am I forgettting anyone?

I haven't had to deal with many bandwagon jumpers at school except for this one kid in my English class and this girl I dated a couple of times last year. The other Cubs fans are just obnoxious.

That is the price of success. It's not that big a deal. Yes, you're going to see lots of people ooohing and aahhing about infield flies, thinking it was gone.
You're going to see people constantly getting up for beer, talking with their backs to the game, etc. Their ticket money is putting a better product on the field for Sox fans. Oh well.

Lots of people jump on the bandwagon. It's okay. We welcome new fans. I recall that the membership of WSI went up A LOT over this last season.
We welcome all comers. Just love our Sox like we do. :bandance:

Well, I'm new to the site, but I've been a Sox fan born and raised. Hell, growing up at 35th and Emerald in Bridgeport tends to give you a whole different perspective when it comes to baseball.......

Anyhoo, glad to have found such a fun site, but here's a few that I love:

"What the hell is the big deal that they hired Ozzie to manage? He sucked as a player and never did anything!"

"I can't believe that they let Frank go. He did so much for the team last season." (Granted, if someone replaces "last season" with "over the years," I can give them that point.)

When you say "Pudge" to someone, they think of Ivan Rodriquez, not Carlton Fisk.

"The White Sox never sell out. Ever."

"Look at the Mayor sucking up to the Sox. Bandwagon jumper!"

And one for the baseball moronic:

"Why is it that Sox fans feel any sort of loyalty to Harry Carey? He only called Cubs games!"

I was in the grocery store a few days ago wearing my World Series Champions hat and minding my own business, when all of a sudden, someone comes out of nowhere and tells me that I "probably wasn't a fan before October of 2005."

Uhhh, wrongo! Try the earliest Frank Thomas days!

Two rows behind me I heard this gem between the ring ceremony and first pitch:

"When we go to Wrigley we just stay at da bar until da game gets close. Da bars here are too far away so we just came in for da first inning. Didn't know bout da tailgatin'"

I must say, I was impressed at the business these fans provided the beer vendor.

Easy way to remember this is De Paul Blue Demons. Dale Torborg moniker as a professional wrestler was the Demon who dress like a member of KISS. Even thou Dale is the roving S&C coach, that should work.

I forgot thename of the White Sox S&T coach, but he is from NC (I think) and his house burned down last year during the season.

I had a guy yell at me yseterday because I stood up and told the guy who caught the home-run NOT to throw it back to keep it or give it to a kid. This guy a couple of rows in front of me wearing a Bankmees hat no less turned around and yelled this isn't Wrigley....we don't do that stuff here. I asked if he even heard what I said and he yelled some more. This was also the same kid that before the game when Coop was walking to the bullpen and everyone started yelling COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP was wondering "Why are they booing that guy?"

I was at my son's baseball practice yesterday. The coach asked the kids to introduce themselves and what their favorite team was. Last year the Cubs fans out numbered the Sox fans 3 to 1. This year only 1 kid admitted to being a Cubs fan.

That "Chicago Fan" one is the worst.

One that has been mentioned a lot and always seems to come up with people I'm sitting around is, "who the hell is this guy?" I would think you should at least have heard the names of all players on the team.

To be fair though, the mayor did not attend a Sox game for a number of years (although the family did maintain season tickets). How, as a fan, do you not attend a game at least once on a nice sunny summer weekend?

The current Mayor moved out of Bridgeport to the South Loop a few years ago.

Without question, this has to be the ABSOLUTE worst (best): As I ask someone how they scored tickets to Sunday's opening day by buying season tickets? Their Response: "No, work had season tickets and I won them." I say you could've sold them for a pretty penny if you wanted too. His reply, "No way was I selling these tickets, I'm one of the biggest Sox fans you'll ever meet. This is my first game in 8 years!" Are you serious!!??

When I heard someone say that, I stopped dead in my tracks. I have two co-workers who are dyed-in-the-wool Cubs fans who even laughed at the moronic comment. The one even commented something like "Dude, if the city didn't make so much money off of the Cubs, the Mayor would of had his way years ago and banned them from being in Chicago," or something. Granted, the offender of the original comment I think still had the price tag on his Sox ballcap.

"C'mon guys, let's start the wave!" This was said to me by one of the guys behind me at the game yesterday, some time around the 6th inning or so. I promptly told him that takes place at Wrigley and is NOT done at Sox games! :angry:

Today, I was wearing a White Sox World Series t-shirt in Kokomo, Indiana. A guy came up to me and asked, "Did the White Sox win?"

I said, "the last I heard they were tied 3-3 in the ninth."

He said, "No, the Series. Did they win the Series?"

I responded, "Yeah."

The ignoramus replied, "I'm a really big fan. How did I miss that?"

Okay, so one minute ago this guy did not know who won the World Series, but now he is a big fan. I guess that explains the Steelers cap on his head in Kokomo, IN.

Playing devil's advocate....

Not everyone's got extra cash for tickets every year, or even every few years. This guy may very well have lucked into freebies for a rare Sunday night game, when he didn't have to work. I'm more impressed that he didn't sell 'em and used them himself.

(We also don't know where he was the past eight years. My attendance suffered greatly the years I lived in Michigan, for example...)

Agreed. I didn't go to a game for about 7 years at one point. 4+ years of college and 2 years of being the broke guy right out of college. That didn't make me any less of a fan though. I'd still either watch or listen to every game of every season. Just couldn't afford to go to one at the time.

To be fair, a lot of fans didn't attend a game during that era, including me. Baseball wasn't getting my money for quite some time after what happened in 1994. Even then, the bulk of that time was my college days where I was either away, or worked nights and weekends at Dominick's. I hardly had a schedule to even attend games. I've attended on average about 5-6 games since 2000, though...
