Went to my First game up North Vs Cubs, And As soon as I got out of the train, besides the Pee smell, Ticket Brokers GALORE! Guys were selling stacks of tix at face value and even below face value. Cub fan's get loaded and trash talk alot even they there down 4 RUNS. But when URIBE went deep, Cubs fans hit the exits.I'm just glad that on the Real side we don't take advantage of our fellow Sox Fans and that we saw Our Guys win a WS. We will win and lose games, But the best day of my life was OCT 26 2005. We Did it! I'm gonna go watch SOXPRIDE and cry now :D:

hanger, is that you?

Seriously though, while the park is nothing to write home about, and I actually did get the distinct smell of urine at a few points in time, it was absolutely amazing seeing so many Sox fans there. I didn't see any fighting or brawling, it was just good natured taunting by all sides. Until the 8th innning. The the Cubs fans just headed for the exits. Which made the way home even better! Walking to the L with all those quiet individules in blue. :D

Don't let Grobber read that. He will tell you how the ratio was 9-1 Cubs fans, just like last year.:rolleyes:

Here's how my day went today........

Woke up at 8:15am, was picked up at 8:40am, got on the Skokie Swift and then onto the Red Line (I think?) and got off on Addison. Got to Sluggers at 9:40am. Watched the Germany/Argentina game there and didn't leave until 1pm. Had about 7 beers already. Get to the game at 1:05pm, we already had friends there saving us seats. We sat in leftfield, 3 rows back, amazing view. Here's where the fun starts....

Incident # 1: a bunch of Cub fans start chanting "Michael! Barrett! Michael! Barrett!", like his return meant they were going to win the World Series. So I had about 20 Sox fans around me and we all were talking and having fun. After hearing this chant, I told the guys to follow my lead. Everytime the Cub fans ended their "Michael! Barrett!" chant, we'd chant, "Is! A! Pansy!", but instead of pansy we used another word similar to it. So they stopped that chant and then started chanting, "Let's Go Cubbies!" in which I told the guys to follow me again and we replied with "19! 0! 8!" and ohhh mannn did that shut them alllll up. It was awesome!

But, in shutting them up, it lead to this punk ass Cub fan with earrings to stare me down and give me some dirty ass looks. So I just ignored him thinking he was just mad that we were saying what we were saying. This leads to....

Incident # 2: After Uribe hit the home run (which landed about 4 rows behind me), I started to pick on Phil Nevin. I was screaming random things at him (no cursing). Things like, "Why would you accept a trade to the Cubs?! You went from a first place team to a last place team! Is that how bad things are at this stage in your career that you only get playing time on a 5th place team??". He eventually turned around and looked at me for about 10 seconds, it was awesome! Then I just screamed, "Mr. Nevin, forgive me for my remarks. You make $9,000,000 a year, that's more than I'll make in my whole life, so I'll just shut up", and then I went on to sit down and just laugh it off.

As I sat down, I noticed that kid with the earrings was staring me down. You would think he was just drunk and was going to mouth off and sit down. Instead, he would continue to stare at me for the rest of the game! I looked at him and said, "If you're gonna stare at me that long, will you at least buy me dinner or ask me for my number?". He began to spout off some random crap no one understood. To make a long story short, he was pissed that his team sucks, was losing, and that I was talking smack to his team (loool!). One of my buddies stood up (a Cubs fan) and flat out said, "I'm gonna tell you this once, and this is coming from a Cubs fan, sit the **** down and shut the **** up. You look like a ****ing idiot you moron".

He would continue to talk smack, calling out all 20 or so of us. I said things like, "I can tell you work out and would probably kick all our asses, so none of us will DARE step upto you. Allow me to apologize on behalf of everyone for disrespecting you", just little things to get under his skin (blew him a few kisses too lol). But eventually he shut his trap and when he walked by me he didn't say a word or even look at me. Just proving that some Cub fans are just morons and why people hate their fanbase (because of idiots like this one).

Other than this stupid Cub fan moment, I had a blast. Germany won. The Sox won. I drank a ton and didn't throw up. And I didn't get any sunburn, probably the biggest victory of the day considering I was in the sun for 6 hours.

Go Sox!

May I be the first to congratulate you on living up to almost every unfortunate media stereotype of a loutish White Sox fan?

Please tell me that the 84 in your name represents your IQ. That might be a mitigating factor.

Do we really need to make comments on people's IQs here? That's just as big an insult as calling someone "retarded." Take a week off.

I have a friend who's going today. His sons are home and one of the boys got free tickets. He told us last year that he'd never return, but the the boys want to cheer on the Sox. He's dreading it, but what can the poor guy do?

So I was at the Sox/Cubs game yesterday wearing my Konerko jersey in the right center bleachers (first row btw) and at the end of the game a sore loser cubs fan threw a beer at me when my back was turned... I was so pissed off and of course no one knew who threw it.... just another reason to hate Cubs fans: stupid babies, not our fault your team sucks!

Not only was I mad the beer was thrown at me... I was also mad that they would waste beer like that! IDIOTS! :gulp:

No incidents, just a really great time, with tons of other Sox fans. After one nasty Bud, I switched to Old Style. What - no beers of the world at Wrigley?

Mostly good-natured jabs and grumbling from the Cub fans and "What's with all these Sox jerseys?" comments. :D:

We stayed in our seats until the "L" flag was raised. GIMME AN "L"!!! L!! :tongue:

I even tried to start a "Brokeback Cubbies" chant on the way out, then my friend climbed up and put my red 70's Sox cap on the Harry statue's head. Pictures to come, and no, nothing was broken on the statue.

Then we all went to the Holiday Club on Irving and Sheffield - a Sox-friendly oasis in a sea of cub-idiocy for beer, food and car bombs.

I'm gonna do Sox at the Urinal every year!

PS - Wrigley IS a dump! :D:

I'd love to hear you explain yourself. Please take 2-3 seconds to tell me what I did wrong. I say 2-3 seconds because that's how long it should take you to pull your head out of your ass. You're at a Cubs/Sox game, what you expect to happen??

I can already tell you're one of those people that goes to a game and sits on their hands all day and doesn't cheer until the game is over and their team wins. And if they cheer, all they do is clap softly. Nothing against that if you're an elderly person, handicapped, or just not feeling good. But if you're under the age of 50, able to make some noise, and your team is kicking ass, live it up for Christ's sake!

And loutish? That's a pretty big word for you there buddy. YOUR IQ must be WAY over 84. Give me a break.

Mod. edit: Once you get your head "pulled out of your ass" if you have an "IQ...way over 84" you might figure out why you've been banned for a week.

Don't even sweat it man. I for one am happy you showed the pride! I wouldn't be able to set foot in that place during one of these games. I probably would end up getting locked up. I guess I'm a bad Sox fan. So be it.

First and foremost, Mercy! is not a dude, dudes. To quote the poet Neil Simon, "Never assume, because when you assume, you make an "ass" of "u" and "me."

Meanwhile, WhiteSoxFan84, although we are all no doubt enthralled to hear what you think constitutes fun at the old ballpark, that does not entitle you to insult another poster by telling her to (quote) "pull your head out of your ass." To quote no one but me, "****."

I agree with Mercy, but that's not why you are getting a little vacation. You are getting one for the use of your word "retarded". It may not seem like a big deal to you, but I have had pm's in the past from posters that have mentally disabled children and do not appreciate the use of the word.

I'm all about cheering as much as the next guy but tend to be a lot more reserved and don't scream and go all crazy every time the Sox do something good. Just like I'd get angry with Cub fans for pointing at me and yelling when they scored I choose not to do that to them when we score. I rarely have incidents with Cub fans and am a hardcore Sox fan. I enjoy what my team is doing internally and don't feel the need to get all crazy to show everybody around me how "big of a fan" I am. Good for you if that's how you enjoy our team and I won't judge you on it, but I expect the same from you. If you see me while I'm at the game tomorrow when a Sox home run is hit, and I'm clapping while biting my lip, then that's me. And I'm relishing every second of it. A fan is not made by how obnoxious and loud he/she is. Now lets get the sweep tomorrow and walk home quietly with the pride that our team is winning and winning the right way.

This sums up my experience at Wrigley also. After deciding to go to the 12:20 game at 10:30 a.m., getting tickets online, picking them up, i made it inside by the 2nd inning only to discover how disgusting Cubs fans really are. (The following is just the experience i had in the section i was standing in but i'm sure a lot of you can relate) In just the third inning, drunken cubs fans were barfing up their beers and brats and being escorted out by security. Minutes later, a brawl between some other boozers took place and almost everyone around me was more interested in some drunken fight then in the actual game. Fastforwarding to the ninth inning, A.J's 3-run homer was one of the best i've ever seen. The cubs fans reaction to it was pathetic. It truly did look like a dump after people decided to dump their garbage on the field. i dont care how bad you feel about losing or how frustrated you are that your team is having a terrible season, littering the field makes you look pathetic, especially on national t.v. But, aside from the scummy antics of cubs fans, my experience at Wrigley was well worth it to watch the Sox win yet another one over the Cubs. And after a white sox winner, nothing made me happier than to see a tigers loss.

Grobber - I'd say 35%-48% White Sox fans for Friday's game.
Grobber really needs to get a job with the Cubune, he'd fit right in (for the most part).

Here are a couple quotes by Grobber about the series win by the Sox this weekend at The Shrine:

FRIDAY

...getting cheered by the minority Sox Fans and loudly booed as expected by the home standing Cub backers...
Grobber was in full damage control. Sox fans in the minority at The Shrine? Here's what a less biased Cubbie fan had to say:

The Sox fans in attendance -- who had to number at least half the crowd, maybe 60%, far more than ANY Cubs/Sox game at Wrigley Field since interleague play began -- cheered loudly for their favorites, booed Barrett (just as Cub fans booed Pierzynski), and then collectively yawned as the White Sox Express rolled over the Cubs effortlessly 6-2 this afternoon. (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/boxscore?gid=260630116)
I emailed Grobber the above quote and asked him to respond. No response and if I'm correct Grobber did NOT mention the ratio of Sox fans at The Shrine for Sat. or Sun. games.


SATURDAY

There was about a 5 minute delay after Pierzynski's homer when some idiots in the Bleachers threw debris on the field....

Was that an attempt to say that not many or a few threw trash on the field, to minimize the misbehavior?

I went to the urinal for games 1 & 3. Some thoughts from my experience:

1. My brother has to piss as soon as we get there. When he comes out he relates this gem. He and another Sox Fans were washing there hands. Apparentle tou have to push a button on the wall to get the water to come out. A Cub fan couldn't figure this out. So my bro and the Sox fan tell him to push the button and hold it (but they told him to push their button!) The Sox fan says "we don't have this at the cell" My bro says " your right we don't have Cub fans to push buttons for us to wash our hands at the Cell!"

2. Right as the game get started some douchebag Scrubs fans loudly proclaims that Barret is way better than A.J. because he has more Hr's and RBI"s). He proceeds to read of their stats. I loudly retorted that its damn hard to get RBI"s when no one's on base because Thome, Konerko, Dye have cleared evryone of base. Also anyone would have more Hr's playing in this band box. Silence ensues accept for some quiet giggling by both Sox & some Cubs fans.

3. In the 5th or 6th the Cubs have a mild rally going (no outs infield and bloop single) and I'm expecting the Cubs fans to get into it like the first inning. Nope to busy on cell phnes, drinking beer, or deciding what to do after the game. Unreal!

4. Saw the "What a Dump" sign - Classic!

5. Pot calling kettle black moment. Jacque Jones Pops out to Iguchi. Cubs fan next to me says, " ignorant fans booing Jones, he's hitting .300. I reply, " they're not cub fans booing Jones - they are Sox fans chanting GOOOOOCH!

6. As I was leaving yesterday's game I walked right by Jim Hendry - he looked pissed despite the 15-11 loss.

I went to the game yesterday and i think i saw some of the greatest signs ever at a game. I was sitting in section 515 and this guy a section in front of me seemed to have a sign for every occasion. I can't remember all of them but i know he had one that said only fools throw back free balls. I honestly think he had at least 10 signs with him so he would be ready for anything. Did anyone else see this guy?

Maybe he meant "retarded" as in slowed progression. i.e. "the cubs drive to win has been retarded by frequent injuries and horrible management." Huh? Huh?
...no, I guess not.
