I don't hate any team.

Sox are fine with me.

Oh, get a damn grip, you're the one with the issues.

I'm sick of people being genuinely insulting over something as inane and petty as a an inter-city sports rivalry. I (and others) are simply trying to have a bit of fun, offer congratulations to both teams who have done well for themselves this year while acknowledging where their loyalties lie, and your knickers are in such a twist over all this it appears that you've managed to tie a tourniquet.

He really did not say anything insulting; he was kidding around good natured way.

Oh, because admitted I will cheer for the sox over the cubs if they got into the world series, but if the cubs got there I would cheer for them depending on whether or not they were going to be playing the sox I am full of vitriol? Really? You have awfully thin skin.

Avengerfire - You know very well what I'm referring too. Steve-O has been genuinely mean spirited in the past over what is a silly little intracity sports rivalry. I don't get it and I called it out. I have never once insulted the fans of either team other than to occasionally mock the whole 'goat curse' thing which I find a funny bit of Cubs mythos.

Okay. I'm done with this stupidity. I simply would like to congratulate both teams on the achievements and move on.

HEY CUB FANS, go back to your own thread!

YAY White Sox! Kill the Devil Rays.

Oh, and I WILL root for the White Sox over the Cubs if they both make the WS. I hope they both do, though.

True Story:

I love the WHITE SOX, not the CUBS.
I could care less who they play or if they lose.
Cheering for them will never happen, I will cheer for the AL team to beat them.
Why? Because I root for the AL, always have always will.

If the Sox beat the Devil Ray's it'll be a real statement.
I'm doubtful, but it would be awesome.

PS. The blackout was really F'n cool.
