Goat Riders of the Apocalypse
A Hundred Next Years
Just Read 'em!
Well, today's game was certainly exciting, but its time to start preparing ourselves as Cubs fans for the upcoming civil war. The North vs. the South. The lovable losers vs. the only franchise to ever intentionally lose a World Series. 1908 vs. 1917.
Why would anyone ever be a White Sox fan?
First, the league (AL) didn't always suck. Before there was the DH, two leagues actually played 'real' baseball. So, I'm guessing there are some holdovers.
Second, the Sox have been good on a few occasions. If you were coming of baseball age in '83, '95, or '00 you might be tempted to be a White Sox fan.
Fourth, Comiskey Park is really easy to get to if your primary mode of transportation is a car. In my case, I grew up in NW Indiana. It takes about 45 minutes less to get to Comiskey than to Wrigley.
Fifth, its much less expensive to be a White Sox fan. In years past a can of Coke got you half-priced tickets, and a Wendy's value meal could get you into a game for free.
Sixth, even if you have some money, its too hard to get tickets to a Cubs game. For years now, Cubs fans have been unable to buy walk-up tickets on game days to most home games. If you love baseball and want to see it regularly, but can't get tickets, then that might drive you into Jerry Reinsdorf's arms.
Seventh, some people just like to be different.
