To change the text color, highlight the text you wish to change color and then click on the "down" arrow next to the "A" which is just to the right of the font size box. When you click on the arrow, a palette of colors will be presented. Select teal and you are done!

Many. If you wanted to make a parallel, you should have mentioned, "Let's Go Go Go White Sox." The two songs you mentioned have nothing to do with the other.

The major difference between the Sox song and the Cubs song, though, is the Cubs song sucks major ass.

They are songs played at a baseball game, you guys are just so Cubcessed that you want to hate anything and everything they do.

Some of you would roll your eyes if the Cubs built baseball fields for underprivileged areas. It's ridiculious.

And neither the Steam song or Thunderstruck have anything to do with the Sox, they just happen to be used at Sox games.

I really don't give a **** that the song is being played at Wrigley...whatever kind of lame songs they want to play there is up to them; it won't bother me because I would never be caught dead at a Flubs game. What I hate, is having to hear it on the radio, or on the news. The song is a)terrible and b)annoying as hell.

Speak for yourself. They've been blaring this old garbage song from at least 2003. I recall WGN cutting into a White Sox-Royals game with coverage of the Cubs clinching over the Pirates and you could hear this stupid song in the background. They also play this stupid song when the Cubs beat the Sox at Wrigley, games some of our posters go to.

Let me preface this post by saying that I'm fully aware that I might get lit up for this, but it needs to be said...

Sometimes I am baffled by the blind hatred of the Cubs on this site. Yes, I know it's a Sox site. I know they get an absurd amount of (biased) media attention despite how much they've sucked over the last century. I know that they're our rivals, and everything else...but me, personally, I'm a baseball fan as well as a Sox fan. I went to a Cub game last week with a few of my Cub fan friends, and you know what? I had a blast. Not because it was the Cubs, not because it was Wrigley, but because a day at the ballpark with a beer and a hot dog beats a day just about anywhere else.

If you're not watching the games, who the hell cares what song they're playing before/during/after the games? Sometimes it's just better to ignore it.

I love the discussions on here about various biases/favoritisms/whatnot that goes on in baseball, but sometimes there's little else going on except for "Look what they're doing NOW..."

Why should you get lit up? Griping about a song played at Wrigley after a Cub win is mindless. It isn't like all the local newscasts are going to open with the song every time the Cubs win. For me, the only beef I would have is if they played something completely inappropriate (i.e. 2 Live Crew) or if it was some anti-Sox song.

There is a 2 live crew song similar to that 50's song "doo wah diddy"

I don't know as I would like to hear that after a sporting event win, but certainly that song ought to be mentioned in some capacity

I have actually fallen through that 'why hate the Cubs' trap, and then multiple fans will remind me again and again. The media helps too. For me, it has nothing to do with the players, coaches, etc. Too many of their fans get too carried away with winning, especially when they haven't won jack yet, and then feel all high and mighty and go on to rip on the Sox and their fans every chance they get. I especially saw this last year, with the Sox having a bad year. Really hypocritical, since they've had their share of bad seasons, but it's always 'poor us, love us'. But it just annoyed me, you always hear about the Sox fans getting ripped since they only care about the Cubs, meanwhile, their fans win a division and then a ton of them went on to use their time to rip the Sox.

Random fans, or media Cub fans, it's brutal. Then, if a Sox fan responds, all you hear about is the Sox fans who only care about the Cubs. Heard no problems with Cub fans magically becoming Red Sox fans in 05, and cheering against the Sox, but what do I hear on the Score after the Cubs game 1 loss? Dan Bernstein uses the opening to rip on "pathetic douchebag Sox fans who are saynig Cubs suck!". Yeah, I'm sure he heard a lot of this while he was in Arizona. Please, it makes me sick.

What's helped me is just to stop caring.

When you see a Tribune story about the Cubs, just go to the next page.

When someone comes up to you and wants to talk Cubs I'll usually say "Yeah, Fukudome is pretty good.... you guys should really close Marmol." If they say anything Sox I just ignore it, whatever.

I don't really care if they win or lose, because I'm content with my teams.

It really helps, I use to be like you, I use to think I'm not going to ignore them, they are morons, etc. Of course they are morons, but it's like the tree falling in the forest and nobody hears it.

Don't give them an outlet to use their moronic abilities, just ignore them and enjoy your teams and their seasons. Right now my two guys Brewers and Sox are playing unbelievable ball, so I could care less about our neighbors to the north.

While you can draw parallels to "Na Na Hey Hey", I don't care if they sing their dumb song, but to hold hands and sing it all along in stupid cubbie glee right at the end of a game - to me that's really showing up the opponent.

Plus the Cubs are playing it over the loudspeakers, so they're encouraging it. Besides, we only play "Let's go go" during the game and we don't do the "Na Na Hey Hey" after every game, just for key moments. And with Nancy not doing night games, I rarely hear it at all.

Yeah I really fail to see how what they are doing is wrong.

Because we play Go Go-Go White Sox after a couple of big hits are we showing up the opponent?

Or when we blast off fireworks?

So what they play a team-related song after they win, we do it after we have a big rally and then we blow off fireworks when we win. What's the big difference?

Does it make about 90% of us want to throw up when we hear it or even think about it? Yes.

I was actually at the Cubs game with a friend yesterday, and had to hear the place erupt when Wood shut it down and they started playing that god forsaken song. I wanted to punch every person in the face on the way out. But, it's their stadium and their team.

I actually want them to keep playing the song to get their hopes up that this year is ACTUALLY FINALLY THE YEAR! Then their hopes and dreams will get crushed yet again in the final week of the season when they miss the playoffs, or when they get eliminated in the 1st round.

IIRC, The White Sox started playing the "Go Go White Sox" song during the 2004 season. They started it at the beginning of the season and really hardly ever played it. Maybe they thought it would not catch on or that it was out of date or whatever. Then, after the 2004 All-Star break, they started playing it more and more.

And then, in the 2005 season, the song was played with regularity. At which point, it really caught on. It continued to be played a lot during the 2006 season, and on to 2007.

I may be wrong but I do not recall the scrubs playing that "Go cubs Go" song until 2007. Before that, it was NEVER played. Prior to them playing that after wins, they just played random music at the end of the game.

It is not even an argument that the scrubs stole the idea from the Sox. It's plain and simple.

However, I am not mad at them for it. I just view it as "whatever":rolleyes:

Anyone who knows anything knows that they got the idea from the Sox. One of My best friends who is a scrubs fan told me that he was pissed because they stole the idea from the Sox. He said it was cool that they played it after wins but was upset because they never would have played it after wins if the Sox had not started playing "Go Go White Sox" first.

SO? It's not like you have to hear it that often.
My friend has "Go Cubs Go" as his ringtone and it goes off every time he gets a text message, which is constantly.

See, perfect example on the front page of ESPN.com, "Streaking Cubs complete sweep of Pirates", it's the ****ing the Pirates! They play in a crap league/division, and when they, the big payroll team, do what they're supposed to do and beat them, everyone has a mediagasm. 'Oooo, this could be the year'. Then people act all shocked when the Diamondbacks ****ing embarrass them. When they lose 2 in a row next, the fans will be 'this is going no where, well, what would you expect, it's the Cubs *pan to fun loving smile*'

What are your thoughts on the White Sox shooting off fireworks after wins?

I think it's a tremendously perverted symbol and not what family friendly organization like the Sox should promote. The White Sox promotions people should be ashamed for showcasing pent up, pleasuring explosions.

One thing I hate about Cubs fans is when their team has a better record than the Sox and they brag about it and say the usual "Sox suck" and "Cubs are better than the Sox" crap. Excuse me, but why should we care? The only time we should care about them winning or losing is when they play us. The Cubs could go 159-3 this year for all I care. I just want our Sox to get back to the playoffs.

I have hear many of Cubs fans speak the phrase "Love your team more than you hate ours", and it works both ways: there are those of us Sox fans that do the same thing (not necessarily you, of course), but the response should be the same: let's see how we both do in our series and in our individual playoff races. Good call thoms35forever, let's just beat the crap out of the AL.

I'm not sure why this thread is so popular. We should be spending more time determining what Kerry Wood's entrance song should be.

I've never been one to advocate the website known as NorthsideBaseball.com, but I just took a look there today (yep, I looked so you don't have to!) and they actually renamed their "RIVALRIES" thread. The new name is (get this)... "DISCUSSION OF LESSER TEAMS"
