I was just wondering if we were going to start the chant 19-08 when we face the Northsiders. Or is this a no no ripping off the Yanks when dealing w/ the Red Sox? Thoughts?

The main problem with the 19-08 chant is the cub fans won't know what we are talking about.

Who cares what the Spankees think/do/say?

I'd have lots of signs, pennants and apparel reminding the Cubs who won the World Series last year. Nothing else is necessary.:smile:

What's with this flubsession, with no discretion, classless chant obsession leading to aggression amongst the posting population of this board. It's an outrage I say. Don't you know there's no competition any longer and the northside has been beaten into submission? Until ignoring the baby bears comes to fruition there shall be no hesitation, or indecision, in belittling those who think any competition remains.

Begin the bannination, I say!!! Reeducation on forum rules is a necessitation!!!

I think it's a bad idea. I remembered some Red Sox fan holding up a "1917" sign at Fenway Park during the ALDS and I kept thinking, "You FINALLY won and now you're giving someone else ****? Especially after hearing '1918' from Yankees fans all those years? You *******!"

So, can't be a hypocrite. I say no.

I thought it was a dumb idea. The sad part is it will happen. WSI represent a small percentage of people at the park now that the Sox are champs. I will be at this game but am more looking forward to that Monday's game to cheer for Frank and thank him for all the years.

Wow could not agree more. Who cares what they do or what place they are in, how many articles are in a newspaper, or anything else i may have missed which im sure there are tons. The stats speak for themselves and so does the banner that is in our stadium. no reason to lower yourself since there is no point to prove. There is point to be obsessed with something you hate so much and like a fool.

Also I was driving past Wrigley yesterday and say a Sox fan coming out the game with a Burls jersey on....highly doubt we can really complain about the fools coming into Comiskey with Cubs stuff on(which is highly annoying) when we have our own fans doing the same thing.

I've never found anything annoying about anyone going to any park wearing the logo of the team they root for. I go to games in other cities wearing Sox stuff when it's, e.g., the Cards v. Astros, so why not the Urinal or the Cell, too?

I believe Fox does have something to do with the scheduling...every Fox game is on at 12:05 for some reason...if that is the reason for a night game, it's a dumb one...people can get just as drunk and crazy at 12:05 and 3:05 as they can at 7:05. I hate the 3:05 starts, that sun in the bleachers is a killer at that time!

Yes I agree Fox can set saturday schedules, but there is no need for them to "bud in" in the crosstown series since no night games will be scheduled in the first place.

Fortunately WSI does represent a small percentage of the population. Over the years this site has convinced every member that we should be "proper" and "classy" to the point of complete boredom. Unfortunately there are a lot of sheep that agree. Does the word character mean anything around here? If we all acted according to the WSI rules of being classy we would be unable to show true emotion and would therefore be depriving ourselves of the unbounded pride and passion that made this fanbase great. WSI melts everyone together into one set of opinions and therefore one boring personality.
In my opinion people around here need to stop being so uptight and start having some fun. The last thing I want to see is a Sox fanbase that is completely characterless and lame. Rivalries, whether between teams or fans, are a huge part of sports. The reason the Sox/Cubs series is fun has nothing to do with the teams. We aren't even in the same league. The series is fun because we have a rivalry with the fans. It is true that we have nothing to prove and the Cubs have basically been beaten into submission as far as baseball success goes, but that doesn't seem to stop them from talking. It's not like I don't still walk into bars and hear people cheering against the Sox and talking crap to me. The Cubs no longer have any ground to stand on and I plan on proving that on the field again as well as from the stands with words.
When was the last time the Cubs won the series? 1908 I say.

I'm dressing up as Rip Van Winkle - longwhite beard and all, with a sign that says "Chicago Cubs - still sucking after all these years"

I think "1908" is too tough to cheer. Nineteen - O - Eight just doesn't have a good ring to it. Here's some other optional cheers:


1. "Cubs are douchebags"
2. "Dusty wears a manbra"

How 'bout a sign that reads "Chicago Cubs - a celebrity ballclub cheered on by latte drinking hermaphrodites, and tourists from Iowa"

That said, there's no better treatment than the silent treatment for inferior team's fans. We don't have to say anything anymore, and it hurts them the most that way.

I know this has come up before, but I keep running into Flub fans in strange places (airplanes, hotels, work situations), and when they hear I'm a for-real Sox fan, they're speechless. I can't take credit for that, as I had nothing to do with the '05 team winning, but I'll enjoy the fruit of their labors.

No, It's stupid.

I went to a few of the Sox vs Red Sox games last year and Red Sox fans were chanting 1917, and saying **** like "Win A World Series."
I said, "Wow, you win one in 87 years and you people think you have won them every year."

Therefore, its stupid you chant 1908 after we had just won one in 88 years.

Just wear your world series gear and say nothing to them. ROOT FOR THE WHITE SOX!

I understand what you are saying, but if they do say something to us about having just won one, we can simply respond with something like this;

"Hey, when you win a World Series, you can treat it how you want. This is how I choose to celebrate it." End.

I make fun of Balsa Wood and the Messiah and Dusty. You do too. Face it, kids... we're Sox fans. We grew up in the same backyard with these guys. It is, and forever shall be, a rivalry. I know they're NL. I know they aren't in our division. We all have our own Cub fan moments. We all have had times in our lives when we had Sox vs. Cubs comments to people in bars or school or work. We all have a friend or relative that supports the Cubs. We have their team in our yard the year after we won a World Series. Live it up. Enjoy it. I wish I could be at the park to start the chant.

I think the sweetest part of that game will be the introduction. Specifically, the highlights of the WS and the clip of Joe Buck saying "And the White Sox have won the World Series." I am guessing the place will probably be the loudest it will be all season right at that moment.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: it is ON this year, and you count me among the chanting, screaming masses whether it's in the stands, in a bar, or in my living room.

I know that Red Sox fans are stupid for pulling that "1917" business, but I never liked them anyway. I know we've only won one World Series in pretty much any WSI'ers lifetime. I know it's juvenile, infantile, low-class...the type of behavior you'd expect at a more frat-friendly ballpark.

But I don't care about any of that. Silence only goes so far in the face of the Cubbie masses, let alone the thousands that will descend upon the Cell that weekend.

We have the championship; they don't. We have a reason to be proud; they don't. We have our stars on the field; they have their stars in Iowa pitching simulated games. We have very real hope for a repeat; they have memories of high attendance, scalped tickets, and puking behind Murphy's. I refuse to take the high road with these people. Over 3 hours in the afternoon. Over a game!

My fellow Sox fans can sit it out if they want, and they have every right to, but I want to take every opportunity I can to rub this moment in the faces of everyone who ever made a joke about what a Sox fan looks like, acts like, gets in return for their admission. I want Cub fans walking away horrified at what they've seen - horrified at the fact that it is possible to be rewarded for years and years of waiting for the ultimate civic pride and that somewhere, right here, right in their own city, people have reason to celebrate baseball.

And besides, it's a ballgame, not a wedding. Have a little fun with it while this lasts; Prior's coming back any day and that can only mean glory is on its way...


So let's get this going already:

Just curious, has anybody else run into Cubs fans that are already making excuses for this series before it has begun? I've had two Cub fans that I know tell me stuff like "well, you guys are lucking out that D-Lee isn't going to be healthy" and "gee, our pitching staff is in shambles for this crosstown series". My response was "are you giving up already?":D:

One thing I know is that these games will likely be close ballgames which is par for the course for the crosstown series. You can throw records out the window. There have been few blowouts in the history of the crosstown series and most have been 1 run games decided after the 8th inning. The Cubs will be out for blood in this series with guys like Michael Barrett still stewing about last year's Championship for the Sox. It ain't going to be a cakewalk but should make for an entertaining series as usual. My pick is Sox take 2 of 3.:cool:

Im all for razzing these people as hard as one humanly can. They're Cubs fans and most can't even tell you why. There was a race for the grand prize going on in Chicago baseball, whether you want to acknowledge it or not. Sox won. Give them hell...

With that said, I think the 1908 chant is weak. Cubs fans obviously don't care about history or winning and, like others have said, most won't even know what it means. I think we can be much more creative than that in our smack talking when facing the freakin' CUBS on HOME TURF the year after WINNING the WORLD freakin' SERIES.

It's actually Joe Buck's call, but I will be there with a World Series flag, and I will have fun rubbing it in that the Sox won the World Series last year. These games are fun, because from a fan's perspective, like SoxintheBurgh said, we've all been in the same backyard for our entire lives. Anyone who says there is not a rivalry is kidding themselves. How two teams can be in the same city competing for market share from the fans, and there NOT be a rivalry is beyond me. Whenever the Sox play the Cubs, it is FUN. Some people on here take it to another level and try to come up with rules what 'real' Sox fans should and shouldn't do or say. This series is going to be fun, it's not just another team coming into town.

I won't chant 1908, because it just seems silly since we just won last year. However, I will take in the atmosphere that is a Sox-Cubs game/rivalry. I love the fact that we have what the Cubs don't right now, and I will love every minute of it because I'm a Sox fan whose team just won the World Series.

I know they're NL. I know they aren't in our division. We all have our own Cub fan moments. We all have had times in our lives when we had Sox vs. Cubs comments to people in bars or school or work. We all have a friend or relative that supports the Cubs. We have their team in our yard the year after we won a World Series. Live it up. Enjoy it. I wish I could be at the park to start the chant.

:cheers: I'll say it extra loud for you.

i'm not sure if it's me, but i'm sensing sox fans aren't so cubs obsessed. what a relief.

i understand why we got this way (2nd team, 2nd city, black sox, blah, blah, blah), but i'm also glad that we're getting over it.

we were like those feral children they find tied to a bed-post or locked in a cage from time to time: kept out of sight, neglected, social miscreants. we were treated like second class citizens by our neighbors -- fans of the worst team in professional sports (no, not the blackhawks!).

so in case anyone on this site, in this city or in north america hadn't noticed -- we won it all last year. we were and are a very good team.

so we're healthy now. we've crawled out of the cage. we don't have to snap at cubs fans like we're abused dogs.

the way to address morons is to show a littlle swagger. smile at an idiot:

you're wearing the world series champ hat
your jersey has the WS05 patch on it.
your ballpark has the banner.
we have a WS mvp (and a CS mvp)
our ace just won pitcher of the month. again.
our team is best in the bigs. again.i could go on and on. but why mention "dusty this...," or "wrigley that..." or even "a simlulated whatever?" <-- 'tho that one's tempting.

I'm not saying you shouldn't have some fun with them at their expense, but remember, they're the one's w/ the monkey on their back now: 1908.

did you listen to the score last night? jeff joniac (sp) did a whole segment on the cubs. their callers were the ones who sounded sick. they're in real pain. i was in a galyans (or dick's -- whatever it's called) and some douchebag in a cubs hat walked up to me out of the blue (ok, i'm wearing one of my WS champs hats) and just says "i hate the white sox."
i just said "you should. we just won the world series. you didn't."
then i just shrugged my shoulders like "what more is there to say?"
that was that.

even my friends who are lifelong cubs fans, who cheered for the sox last fall all said, "this is great. but i wish it was us."

so stand tall. don't let yourself get baited by these poor diseased mongrels. just smile, turn your back to them, then drop your pants and serenade them with "we are the champions" from your balloon knot.

ok, maybe just sing it.

You have got to be ****ing kidding me! :o:

Edit: The funny thing is that this domain name was registered in March of 2004. Somebody in the Cubs organization thought that they were a lock for the '04 WS after the 2003 Marlins debacle. Priceless!

And thanks to its occasional appearance on these boards, it gets way more attention than it deserves.

I don't know about that. I don't think it gets enough attention. Is there anyone on the planet that could honestly say that there is any link between www.worldserieschamps.com (http://www.worldserieschamps.com) and the Cubs? The Yankees, definately. But the Cubs????
