Ah, hell, I secretly root for the Cubs and was surprised when they TOTALLY collapsed in 2008! In this town, it seems like you have to declare fealty to one or the other, and I never got off on the blue uniforms etc.Sox fan here. Always have been since my Father brought me to the games. They were awful. And they had those stupid looking French foreign legion looking uniforms with the ugly jersies and hats and I think they wore shorts. I was at the disco demolition derby in the 70's , although I was in grade school. Left before all real craziness kicked in. I never thought Id see the day the White Sox won a World Series!
Never had anything against the Cubs. Just never followed them. Never really cared for them.
My Dad used to take me to both teams, he was an old guy (died in 2003 at age 90) and had seen Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb etc.! He told me that he'd watch Ty Cobb sharpen his spikes with a file while on the bench....dang, that's history for you! He liked any game any time, a great way to learn to love sports!
Still, my buds and I get together and yell CUBS SUCK on many occasions! It makes for a fun season actually. The Bartmann thing was just SO Cubs-fans typical!!
Regarding the Bengals today vs. Texans, I see that Cedric Benson had a typically Benson-like 2.75 yards/carry, but at least he scored a touchdown (unlike his typical game as a Bear).
Tough luck about Odom, I hate to see a good guy go down for the season from any team.
Kickoff coming up, GO BEARS!
