Seriously if anybody goes in the direction of "how dare they speak of the North side" they really don't get it. I've almost always been critical of their marketing efforts, but this one is pretty good. At least it has a professional look to it.

Now about that introductory montage...

I always say it's a South Side/North Side thing to be nice to Cub fans.


It really an IQ thing.

I kind of like it, there's some potential here and yes, at least it looks like it was edited by a professional who actually gets paid to do those kinds of things.

I can't believe the Bulls do such a good job of branding themselves Chicago Basketball and the Sox make almost no attempt to brand themselves a Chicago team. Maybe this is a slow movement in that direction. Hopefully.

Yes I agree. Lets grow up a little bit and stop the mental midget mentality of "us against the world". Its not appeallinv and I think it makes Sox fans and the organization look bad. The Sox are a Chicago team. Theyre not called the South Side of Chicago Only Sox. Its time to broaden the appeal of the Sox in any way they can. Its probably a hard sell but I love the effort. Seeing that in the commercial actually lessens the chip on my shoulder. Now its time to put the city flag back on the helmets like in the early 90s. Maybe on the hats too.

It's so easy in life to be negative. It's the easiest thing in the world to be against something. It's one hell of a lot harder to be for something, to advocate for something, to stand and say "this is what I am" without apology.

I love this marketing piece. That's all it is, a marketing piece. Were you expecting the Gettysburg Address? To hate this is easy. Let's all hate it so we can be smarter than whoever came up with it.

I think it's simple, classy, and to the point. The hell with all of you who hate it, because it's damn likely you won't ever like anything. Have fun celebrating your own misery.

I like it (with the exception of featuring Danks). It's professional and, let's face it, there's not much to work with coming off last season.

Much better than the recent 'comedic' efforts.

I like it.

BTW: Bucktown is loaded with Sox fans, that whole South vs. North thing doesn't really apply any more.
