Default Cubs/Sox Rivalry from the Cubs.com page

Check this story out from the cubs.com page

http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/NASApp/m...ives&fext=.jsp

Tries not to put down either team, has some valid points. You be the judge.

So you can imagine what the feeling is now, with the advent of Interleague baseball. The games between the Cubs and White Sox count. And they probably count double for Sox fans
The author of the article comes across to me as a bit pretentious, but what should I expect from a cub site?

I know plenty of cub fans who care about this series just as much as we do.

ditto.


one thing i've also noticed this year; now that the cubs are so good on paper and on a little hot streak, cub fans who normally dismiss the inter-city series , and the sox altogether - are all hopped up and excited for this series and what they predict will be a cubbie win....

I think its pretty darn accurate. I know Cubs fans who care, but not many. Basically every White Sox fan I know cares.

Trust me, most "real" Cubs fans care. They may care for different reasons, but these games are far from meaningless for them.

Just remember, the Cardinals are playing the last-place Royals while the Cubs have to play in a playoff-like atmosphere against a team that needs/wants to win as much as they do.

Oh sure, they care that way...that they are in afight for a division and need to win against a pretty good team. They don't care like some viscious ridiculous White Sox fans though that are cut throat and want to "destroy the cubs, I hate the Cubs, etc."

Right, there are no Flubs fans like that. Flub fans are so superior to Sox fans.

Well, some do.

I guess that what happens when half the fan base can't even name 5 players on their own team. Those same "fans" really don't get into the rivalries much either...

True story...

Last winter Wheel of Fortune had a contestant from Joliet, Illinois. Naturally Pat Sajak (also from Joliet) had to probe deeper when this guy volunteered that he was a big Cubs fan, and also liked the Bulls, Bears, and Hawks. So he asked the obvious question, "What about the Sox?" The guy replied, "Nope," and when pressed further he said, "Sox Fans brought that on themselves."

If Jason hasn't met petty, vindictive Cubs fans, he sure isn't trying very hard.

The Cubs fan finished dead last. Who's surprised?

Little defensive there? I didn't say there were none. I said its an epidemic among Sox fans...not so much on the other side.

Oh, I'm sorry. West and I hadn't realized you consulted A.C. Nielsen on the subject.

Nope, just pointing out that you are being naive, as others have, too.
