Nice article from Mike Downey. I guess he hasn't started his "re-education" training yet after last week's anti-Cub article: :tongue:

I liked this quote:

Greg Gumbel, CBS sportscaster

"I was tied up with work and couldn't catch the whole game. But when it did end, a few things were crystal clear. One, I was happy for all those people who gave support to the Sox down through the years. Two, I flashed back to my all-time favorite Sox team, the '59 crew with Aparicio and Pierce and Fox and Klu and Lown and Staley. And three, I thanked my lucky stars I was never a Cub fan."

Nice Article.

My only problem is that this should've been written 10/27/05 !!!!

I'll bet nobody knew that Pat Sajak liked the SOX? George Lopez? Loved the little blurb about him. Note how he was ignored when they won it all.

Nice article. George Wendt was hilarious. I always thought that Joan Cusack and Pat Sajak were fans of that other team.

I remember seeing George Lopez wearing a Buehrle jersey on his show once.

Nicely done by Mike and his collegues who are given credit at the end of his story.

Very nice memories. Yes I have read that Sajak himself said growing up he went to Comiskey Park but was a Cub fan.

Excellent story. I guess that the White Sox have some fans.

I remember seeing George Lopez wearing a Buehrle jersey on his show once.

He was also at the Urinal late this year, singing the 7th inning stretch, in full, Cub Clown regalia.

Nice article. I enjoyed George Wendt's comment about ribbing his Cub fan friends telling them that winning the World Series was really a "hollow feeling" :D:

Wow, first an anti-Cub article and then a pro-Sox article. No Christmas bonus for you Mr. Downey!

Since he didn't make up for his first article by slamming the Sox, I guess the Tribune is going to Plan B - which is to have Sullivan crank out even more pro-Cubs drivel....if that's possible.
