This one is excellent. After one of the games, the bar fills up with usual post game SOX crowd. I start chatting with a guy, who walked in with a group of his friends, and hes making fun of one of his friends, in a Twins hat. He points him out, and as I look over there, I see he is being accosted by a group of SOX fans already. I walk over there and hes talking about the Twins and the SOX got "lucky" and that the flubbies are gonna go all the way now, its their turn and their in 1st place. We were all saying "the cubs?" when he admits that hes really a cub fan wearing a Twins hat. Well of course, this guy got the catcalls, insulted, laughed at. He started getting mad, and I thought why would anyone admit theyre a cub fan in a SOX bar? Undaunted, the kubby klown began talking about the lineup and how theyre going to march to victory and theyve been good for a while now ........... At this point, I had to step in.

I quieted the bigger group that had formed around this guy, and confidently gave them a fact to chew on. How many 90-win seasons have the SOX had since 1950? 13 I told everyone. and the Cubs have had since 1950 I asked ............... THREE. Everyone burst out laughing and pointing their fingers and catcalling the kubby klown. He angrily than said ....
Why do you guys got to talk about facts? That response earned him another burst of laughter. It was pretty funny. He than said SOX fans have to stop living in the past ............

Was the guy being a jerk about it or just having fun and being a smart ass? People like this didn't get enough attention from their parents. Now they try to get it like this. Maybe if you act all motherly and tell him he is cool and popular he would have gone away...I'll try that next time someone pulls that crap with me.

Classic! I get that from a collegue at work too!

It's not living in the past. It's living in the NOW, as in we're the defending champs until dethroned.

Oh, the humor!

Being a Cub fan is a mental disorder.
