And you were the one who said that neither the Cubs nor Sox would make it to the playoffs. At least we got swept by a team going to the NLCS. You got swept AT Cell Phone Field by the lowly Cubbies and lost the season series 1-5. Sour grapes, me thinks.

Hey, at least we White Sox fans have won a recent World Series; and we don't go around crying like babies and choke when a foul ball gets caught by a fan.

Talk about a fall - going from winning a "recent" World Series, to not even being able to break .500. Sad. Just sad.

Yeah you're right. I guess I'll just have to watch my WHITE SOX WORLD SERIES DVD's to get me through these tough times.

What about you?

No tough times here. My team just clinched the division. Seams as though your team's win was a Fluke!

Huummm... Let me think, Cubs have 4 division championships in 20 years and no World Series championship in 100 years. White Sox have 4 division championships in 20 years and a World Series Championship in the last two years. I get the feeling you'd trade all of those "prized" division championships for 1 World Series.

Cub fans would kill to have what you call a "fluke". Fluke or not, at least I've seen my team win one.

I think Mike get's big words like fluke, choke, loser all wrong. I'm not sure if he understands when someone says, "Look at yourself in the mirror, you are such a crybaby!"

He should go to the zoo and see some real Cubs; not the poser fags in Wrigleyville.

Fred, I'm not crying, I'm a happy fan. And you sound downright bitter when you have to stoop wayyy down to name-calling level to try and make your team sound better. I'll take the real fans - homosexual and heterosexual - that stick with the Cubs through thick and thin rather than the fair-weather fans that can't even fill a stadium when your team is doing well.

The Cubs were the better team this year, and I'm proud to be a fan.

And Nelson, get out your abacus. It's only been 99 years and counting.

Supporting a losing team by spending money on a bad product is not something to be proud of, although many Cub fans will tell you different. It is the most backwards thought process I've ever heard of that Cub fans seem to hold on dear to. If a restaurant continued to serve you horrible food (for 99 years), would you continue to go? Or would you show your displeasure by not showing up until they changed what's on the menu.

Stop holding on to that "we show up" stuff and demand that your club put a championship quality team on the field. Then I will think better of the Cub fan base.

There is nothing "lovable" about losing. That tag should only be reserved for little league kids.

You mean they still play that game? Last time I checked the players were all on strike....

Mike.com said...

Once again, you think your team is superior, although my team kicked your's buttocks all over Cellulitis field.

You and Fred know the Cubbies were superior this year. That's why you resort to name calling, sounding somewhat like Jerry Lewis, and whining about our fans.

Nelson, the world could care less what you think of Cub fans. Get over yourself.

Nelson said...

"You and Fred know the Cubbies were superior this year."

At this point, that's like being the tallest midget! Yes the Cubs beat the White Sox this year, and if beating my team will help you forget that broom job and sleep better at night, so be it. If the White Sox lost every game to the Cubs next year and win the World Series, do you think I would care that we lost to the Cubs? No!

I didn't call Cub fans any names, and I don't need the world of Cubdum to care what I think (although they would be smart to listen). I'm only hear to push the buttons of one Cub fan.

And your team should have saved some of that "buttocks" kicking for Arizona. The team that really mattered.

As a true baseball fan, I celebrate every series win. And clinching the division is fantastic. Guaging by Cellular One Field attendance, the typical Sox fan only gets excited if they're in a World Series race. There's so much more to enjoy.

Good thing you're not a Bears fan. I'm still excited they went to the Superbowl last year.

"Guaging by Cellular One Field attendance, the typical Sox fan only gets excited if they're in a World Series race."

Ballpark: Wrigley Field (ballparks.com)
Attendance: 3,252,462 (4th out of 16)

Ballpark: U.S. Cellular Field (ballparks.com)
Attendance: 2,684,395 (5th out of 14)

Cubs got a little more than 500,000 people than the White Sox this year, and my team sucked. So don't say we only go if we're in the hunt, that is an old dead point not backed by stats. Besides a "true baseball fan" would not be concerned about how many people are sitting next to them, but only how the team performs.

"Good thing you're not a Bears fan. I'm still excited they went to the Superbowl last year."

I'm a big fan and was very excited that they went to the Super Bowl. I'm just not satisfied that they just went to the Super Bowl. I want my team to win, and expect them too. Did they have a very good year? Yes! Was it a successful year? No!

All in all. With all your boasting about beating the Sox 5 games this year, both teams won exactly the same number of playoff games. NONE!!!

It's been a long week; and I'm sure no-one will see this but I just want to say that identifying people in wriglyville as Fags, though politically incorrect, is true.

Does it matter? No. I have had a change of heart. I think all gay people should have a team to root for; and that team is the Cubs.

And not joking here, I've never had a gay friend who's favorite team wasn't the Cubs. I'll say that yes I live 3 hours from Chicago, so most gay people I meet are from the midwest. It's like that purple teletubby for me; when I see Cubs, I think Gay!
