Got a package out of the blue from New Era.  No idea why.  I mean I thought the Cubs game in a luxury box and two bags of product would be the end of our relationship, but I think they just love me.  Like maybe even more than I love them.  Anyways, I’ve got a shit load of great hats and t-shirts to give away.  I feel like I should do some sort of contest.  First contest…come up with an awesome contest.  Winner gets a New Era hat and a t-shirt.

New Era Rivalry: Round 2

May 17, 2012 Leave a comment

The Cubs-Sox series is right around the corner and the bitterness between the two fan bases is as bad as ever.  I just don’t get it.  I am on board with only having one favorite team.  It’s impossible to devote yourself mentally, emotionally, and financially to two teams in the same sport.  So I know people in Chicago have to choose sides.  What I don’t get is why the two fan bases hate each other so much.  They only play 6 games per year.  The Cubs fans might as well hate the Orioles and the Sox fans might as well hate Atlanta.

As a neutral third-party who wants all good things for the city of Chicago I really feel like I should be appointed the official mediator for the rivalry.  Just have me sit down with these two guys and get to the root of their problem.  Make sure the conversation stays cordial as we get to the real feelings underneath.  I’ll have them use “I language” instead of attacking “you language”.  I mean my sister is a therapist so I am probably qualified by proxy.  I want to get to the bottom of this.  Let your anger go Cubs and Sox fans.  Just let it go.  Focus on you.

PS: I think I will discuss my commercial idea starring me tonight at the Cubs-Phillies game with New Era while I am watching the game from their suite…

“What’s that New Era?  You want me to go to the Cubs game in your suite?  Hold on, let me check my schedule.  I mean I am very busy being a sports/smut internet mogul.  Ok…I am supposed to have a dinner with Rocky Wirtz, but I can turn that into just drinks.  We are good to go.  Thanks.  See you there.”

The only question now is who do I take with me.  First instinct is to invite some rocket.  Never hurts to show up to an event with eye candy on your arm.  Second instinct is to take one of the two guys who have contributed to the blog…but that’s like Sophie’s choice.  Can’t risk offending either of them, so they are both out.  A follower? A friend? Contest?  I feel like there has to be an opportunity to capitalize on this somehow.

Can someone please explain the whole Cubs vs Sox rivalry to me?

Alright, I am a neutral third-party.  I am a Boston transplant.  I have lived in this great city since 1998, and for the life of me I still can’t figure why the Cubs vs White Sox rivalry even exists.  They have never played a meaningful game against each other.  They aren’t in the same division.  Neither are very good.  I tend to like the Cubs more.  It’s a good time at Wrigley.  Pretty girls in summer clothes, luke warm beer, luke warm hot dogs, and I don’t have to run back to my car for fear of getting mugged after the game.  But to me, I don’t understand why there is such venom between the two fan bases.  I get the White Sox have this inferiority complex towards the Cubs because all the hot girls hang out at Wrigley and the White Sox are basically irrelevant.  I also understand that the Cubs have an inferiority complex towards the White Sox since the 2005 World Series.  So…isn’t that a common trait?  The two organizations are different, but we all live here.  Can’t we all just get along?

PS: If you’re a White Sox fan…try to switch sides now.  Epstein is going to morph the Cubs into a powerhouse.  Wrigley is getting renovated. They are going to bring in more money, better players, and shit load of wins over the next 10 years.  Just jump ship now.  Get on the Cubs rocket ship and enjoy the ride.

PPS: Anybody who switches teams is a douche.

Double PPS: Best pizza in Wrigleyville is Ian’s on Clark.  Get that Macaroni and Cheese pizza because regular pizza just doesn’t have quite enough carbs.
