You have to understand how insufferable the White Sox fans are ... a trait not muted by their team winning it all last year. However, even with a World Series victory, the Sox have popularity numbers just under the Cubs and Bears ... when in a "normal" year, they're down with the hockey and soccer teams. Basically, they'd have a more solid fan base if they had moved to Sarasota like they were supposed to.
What I (and every other true-blue Cubs fan) am hoping for is that the Sox don't even make the play-offs this year. I wonder how the blow-hards from the south side will justify their numbers taking a plunge back down to near minor-league levels, after having their big win making them "almost as popular" as my struggling Cubbies!
Call it Schadenfreude if you must, but it's more wishing for a bitch-slap for the ever-obnoxious fans of "that other team"!
