A Word about Chicago Baseball

Remember what they taught in Sunday School -- "Blowing out another's candle won't make yours shine brighter?" White Sox fans sure don't.

It is a myth that I hate the Chicago White Sox. I'm sure their roster is filled with perfectly lovely young men. In fact, over the past decade I have developed a genuine fondness for infielder Paul Konerko.

It is true, however, that I hate White Sox fans. Why? Because they hate me. They live to blow out my happy little Cubbie candle.

Why are White Sox fans so hostile to Cub fans? It's just how they are. Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, Sox fans gotta hate.

Which is why I am sooooo happy when the Cubs kicked serious South side ass last night, and did it at the Cell. 

I know this will ultimately be yet another disappointing season on the North side. I know the Sox will undoubtedly make the play offs.

But tonight's 12-3 win? As the song says, "They can't take that away from me."

  2. I'm kind of learning a bit about baseball pride living here. In NJ, I lived near Philly-so it was the Phillies people rooted for but here...definitely Yankee country. The Mets are a team that just isn't talked about much though I'm sure there are several closet Mets fans.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
