A Cubs fan I know sent this e-mail out today to a bunch of us Sox Fans ... it's kind of pathetic, really.

Just think, if the White Sox would actually defy the odds -- or again get instrumental help from the umpires -- and actually repeat as World Champions, unless they go 11-0 through the playoffs, they would, in fact, have a worse season than last year. Meanwhile, a team like the Cubs can wind up 2 games under .500 and have improved. Leave it to the Sox to be able to figure out how to work hard and still fail.

may possibly be the dumbest email I have ever seen. Dont think when you are on a 7 game losing streak you have room to criticize.

So the Cubs winning 5 more games than last year and not making the post-season would be better than the Sox winning 95 games, going 11-3 in the post-season and winning another WS title?

Fans like the one above seem to be in the minority among Cub fans. If you go to one of their message boards, they are all doom and gloom. Pierre sucks, Baker sucks, Hendry sucks, why do we support this team?, etc. Very little bravado on their own boards. They are starting to realize they've been sold a bill of goods once again.

Oh, and the guy I once heard on a sports radio talk station say that the Sox should have to share the WS title with the Cubs since the Cubs split the season series with them. :rolleyes:

True. I know a number of Cubs fans, and none would dare utter something as stupid as the message in the original post. All of the ones I know are sick to death of losing. None of them would ever consider the Cubs season more of a success if they only had a better record than last year while the Sox won the WS again.

They're telling all the haters they're crazy if they think the Sox don't have a nice ballpark, are in a bad area, and won't take over the "attendance trophy" since history shows winning is rewarded in Chicago, the park has been majorly upgraded and "Daley" is building up the area around the park. Real funny stuff going on over at those boards. It sounds like Hangar but it's probably about half the posters saying this.

Couple of letters to the editor in todays Trib go there. Sounds like even some intelligent (no teal), longtime Cub fans are getting tired of all the baggage that goes with their team. When you don't have a plan, all the ivy, atmosphere and neighborhood amenities (read: bars) in the world won't make up for that, at least among the real fans of the team. For the first time since maybe before 1969, the tide may be turning against the Cubs in this town. The emperor wears no clothes, and for us, it's good to be king. :smile:

I have a question:

Pathetic Cub fan loses mind?

Well...

1. The Cubs are pathetic, therefore, "pathetic" is basically a repetitive function...kind of like "MLB Baseball(Major League Baseball baseball)".
2. Loses mind - since when, and in the detailed history of us sharing stories here, does a Cub fan HAVE a mind to lose? Again, repetitive function(see # 1, re: MLB Baseball)

So, the real threadline should have been, 'Cub fans, being, Cub fans'.

Exactly. It's getting pretty annoying to see my friends who were "giant" Cub fans last year all of a sudden talking about going to Sox games and what a great game it was blah, blah.

At least when you're at the ballpark you can usually tell new fans from old fans. My theory: an old fan will have SOME older type of White Sox merchandise on, if hes got a new jersey, he has an older hat and so on. Test it out :D:

The true Cubs fans have known what's been going on and been upset by it for years. They few that I know were lulled into a false sense of hope in 2003 but they see what's happening and aren't expecting anything to change.

The Sox winning the WS was just rubbing salt into the wounds. :tongue:

All the bandwagoners that are now jumping ship have only been Cubs fans since October 2003.

Yeah that would sure suck if the Sox tumbled to 11-8 in the post season.
Just as long as the first number is 11...

By this fan's logic, the Cubs would have to win 100 games for the first time in 71 years and go 11-0 in the postseason to top the Sox's 2005 accomplishment. Or maybe he'll be happy with his team improving to .500, because, obviously, he's not at all obsessed with the Sox.

I guess every close call would have to go against the Cubs during the run so no one could say they got help from umpires.

Leave it to a Cubs fan to sincerely believe "success" is measured by sucking less than last year.

This is the logical conclusion the Cubune created when they put those "Wild Card Champions" patches on the 1998 Flubbie uniforms. The only surprise to me is that their 2004 uniforms didn't have patches declaring "Five Outs Away!"

Cubs fans are idiots because that's the way the Cubune has raised them...

Their opponents were the NL Wild Card team, who actually won MORE than the lowly Cubs did that year (90 if I remember right). That just proves how weak the NL Central was that year. Looking back they should have just devised a playoff schedule that didn't include ANY NL Central teams.

Heck the Sox won 86 that year and fired their manager!

"I BEAT THE HOUSE! I BEAT THE HOUSE!"Yeah, it sure sounds like a Gambler's Fallacy (http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacies/gamblers-fallacy.html):

The Gambler's Fallacy is committed when a person assumes that a departure from what occurs on average or in the long term will be corrected in the short term. The form of the fallacy is as follows:

1. X has happened.
2. X departs from what is expected to occur on average or over the long term.
3. Therefore, X will come to an end soon.

No need to fill in those blanks for anyone here. :cool:
