Ahh, so sorry. I'll make sure to listen to what you have to say and not pay attention to the hundreds of Cubs and White Sox fans I've met in my lifetime.

Look around. Look at a Cubs board, they are talking baseball. Look at this board, they are talking Cub hatred. There's nothing naive about it. You may not want to admit it, but it's true.

Aaahhh, good to see your hand wringing guilt extends to your Sox fandom, too.

I don't know why you see very real observations as guilt. I spend every day here, and I check out the Cubs board as well...it doesn't even compare in terms of negative posts about the other.

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?

Pat Sajak is not from Joliet. He is from 31st and Kedzie and went to Farragut H.S. (same HS that Kevin Garnett attended) and Mr Sajak has a preference to the Scrubs over the Sox, but he will support both teams.

My mistake. Sajak was speaking to the petty vindictive Cubs fan not in the role as WOF host, but as a fellow South Sider. I'm sure you agree it doesn't change the central point.

A one in a million occurence that somebody from Joliet would go on TV and use his twenty seconds of fame to disparage the Sox in the name of Cubs fandom. But we have others here that hold themselves up as far greater experts on the subject than any of the rest of us...

Their empirical evidence covers "hundreds" of Cubs fans? Hey, don't be modest. Make it thousands of Cubs fans...

Hey, you just keep on believing whatever you want. No sweat off my back. Why you have to question, with no real reason, what I've seen my whole life I have no idea.

The feeling is mutual.
