What annoys you most about the Sox???***.

Sox fans are in first in the latest cubune poll. I can't begin to effectively vent this rage, so I will bottle it up for use this weekend.

Yeah, you're probably right. Now that my blood pressure has subsided, they'll probably run a cub poll tomorrow. But I'll still use it as fire for the weekend.

I've been listening to Sam Kinneson all week-Cubbie fans WILL cry.

This is total BS if there is not a Cub Poll this week. Just reading that pisses me off. Glad I will be there personally fri and sat to throw insults at Cub players and fans.

and then "Cubs know St Louis Showdown Big".

Are you ******* kidding me? I've NEVER seen anything like that(granted I'm only 25 and DON'T LIVE IN CHICAGO) but that is absolutely barbaric and impure!

SABOTAGE EVERY POLL THEY EVER HAVE!

They're just pissed we voted their Cubbies off the All City Team, but do they realize they are just adding fuel to the fire?

Default I'm shocked

I thought they'd be too busy ignoring us to jam a poll.

I don't know why people would get irritated - it's good when bad attitudes are exposed like this, even if the Cubune doesn't have the best intentions (and believe me, it is quite deliberate - they're probably chuckling about it as we speak).

It makes me laugh to see the Cubune, with its pretenses of being a 'respectable' newspaper, turn into a trashy tabloid because of their little conflict of interest problem.

Also, isn't it funny how there is no 'nothing' option you can click on?

Yeah, I caught that as well. One loss against the team trailing us, we're 2 game out of 1st and suddenly we're "tumbling" towards 3rd. The Trib just can't stand the Sox are contending this year because it doesn't fit in with their grand Cubs plans. I hope the Cards sweep this series.

That is ridiculous!!! It really makes the Trib look low class, especially combined with that "Sox tumbling toward 3rd" headline. Let's see what kind of headlines they run this weekend if the Sox kick the snot out of their precious Cubbies.

What enrages me even more is if theydo a similar poll for the Cubs, which thy might to "appear" unbiased, the options will be nowhere as negative. For example, the options might be

What annoys you most about the Cubs?
-lack of parking around "our" beautiful, historic Wrigley Field
-the injury bug of '04 (Prior, Sosa, Wood, etc.) keeping "us" out of 1st for the moment
-wrong and hurtful accusations of steroid use of "our" superstars
-being so cute and cuddly that "we" get so many bandwagon-jumpers when all we want to do is watch great baseball at the Shrine.
