Yeah, I don't know. I can't comment much on the burbs, I pretty much try to avoid going west of Cicero or north of Peterson almost at any cost, but I have noticed in my days that while there's definitely a North/South divide between Cubs and Sox fans, there's a very strong city/suburbs divide, as well, in that I've found a lot of North Side city Sox fans and a lot of South suburban Cub fans. So when I duck in the little hole in the wall tavern that maybe has 10 seats, I usually don't get much of a hassle when I ask to put the Sox on. Maybe some of the bigger bars that try and attract the transplants from the burbs are more hostile to the Sox, but the small corner bars that I generally prefer are usually pretty welcoming, especially when they figure out I'm probably going to get blackout drunk in their establishment.
