There are only so many "game summaries" I can post in "newspaper" form and only so many times I can poke fun of Sox fan-Cub fan stereotypes before the jokes get old. So for this one I'll just post some game stats and a few "tidbits."

Winner-Horlen Loser-Jenkins

Bits: Cubs and Sox fans were out in full force, 51,213 strong. Cub fans rocked the old park when Young homered, but the noise level was deafening during the 7 run 4th. The loudest cheers came as Jenkins trudged off the mound, having given up six runs and leaving men on base.

One Cub fan said "we'll beat the white trash easily. We'll show them who the greatest team in the history of sports is." After the game he was reached for comment again. "This game is no big deal. Only the Sox and their lowlife, white trash fans care about this."

One Sox fan said: "I hate Al Lopez, Art Allyn, Ed Short and the chokers on the team. We need to break it up and get a real team. Nicholson and Al Weis for Mantle, Maris and Whitey Ford oughta do it." After the game he yelled "YEEEEEEAHHHH!! Cubs Lose!!!!! YEEEEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!"

Ernie Banks got a thunderous ovation from the crowd of Cub and Sox fans when he came to bat for the first time in the second. The cheers were even louder when he struck out swinging.

1969 Cub rookie Oscar Gamble grounded Horlen to McCraw for the final out.

Ron Santo was asked about the Cubs chances against the Sox, and the rivalry in general. He held his nose. "There is no rivalry. We are the only team in Chicago, period. They don't even belong in the same city as us, let alone the same field. We will win four straight, very easily. I don't anticipate breaking a sweat." Santo went 0 for 4 and struck out three times.

Sun-Times columnist Greg Couch cried when the final out was made. Bob Verdi wrote a column lamenting the lack of Chicago luck. Jay Mariotti wrote that Short, Allyn, Lopez and the White Sox were sent from hell to torture him personally, said that every single White Sox winning season was a fluke, called for Comiskey Park to be demolished, called Dave Nicholson Jack, Al Lopez A-Lo, J.C. Martin a "dumb hick," screamed that he knew the whale was out there somewhere, and was carted off in a straitjacket screaming "Bartman, Bartman, Bartman."

Rick Morrissey, taking stock of the crowd, wrote that every single one of them was a Cub fan who cheered for the Sox because they felt sorry for them, as they have no fans.

Rick Telander called Comiskey Park a "cold monstrosity" and asked "why is this building allowed to stand in the same city as the sacred Taj MaWrigley?" He called Wrigley a "Holy Place" and suggested that the Pope hold Mass there if he ever came to Chicago.

Game 2 will feature Ken Holtzman vs. Gary Peters.
