Default The W

Seeing that blue W everywhere is literally making me sick.
I'm starting to see it in a lot of windows, and it's making me wanna stay home. We need to start a new symbol for the Sox, with the sole purpose of pi$$ing off every Cubs fan in Chicago. Maybe a big black 2 .. symbolizing we're about to see #2 in our lifetimes.

Living in the area, those W flags, which have only become immensely popular in the last 2-3 years, are possibly the new most annoying thing about Cubdumb.

After the Cubs lose in the first round, the W flags will be gone in a couple weeks.

I always thought it hilarious that a team would wave a white flag when they win.

We waived a white flag in 97 while winning.

I agree. I fly my large White Sox World Series Flag on my porch and never get tired of looking at it. I know it bothers my Cubs fan neighbors too because one day they were out for a walk and I was out on my porch. They stopped and looked at my flag in disgust and told me that I should take it down because "that is old now and they didn't win it last year". I politely told them it is staying up there forever and I'll leave room for another championship flag in the future. They just rolled their eyes at me and kept walking. Regardless of what any Cub fan may tell you, that 2005 championship really burned them up. Cubs fans self-entitlement doesn't allow them to believe or accept that we beat them to baseball's ultimate prize. That World Series flag trumps any lame "W" flag every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

You could also make some blue "L" shirts and make a profit, I haven't seen those anywhere.
