Crosstown classic: White Sox vs. Cubs

The first place Chicago White Sox play the Cubs this weekend, and I'll be in Ohio. General perceptions of those living outside the Chicago area are incorrect: Not everyone here is a Cubs fan.

The Daily Southtown has a good article about the rivalry, and this paragraph sums up my beliefs on the difference between Sox and Cubs fans perfectly.

The White Sox call working-class Bridgeport home, while the Cubbies reside in trendy 20-something hub Wrigleyville. South Siders see themselves as real sports fans. They believe the average Cubs fan is preppy and disconnected. On the South Side, baseball's a passion. On the North Side, baseball is an amusement and Wrigley is an amusement park.

Go White Sox!
