White Sox fans and Cubs fans will always have beef with one another.
The internet memes, the sly remarks from Cubs fans told to take it down a notch... "Hey, why don't you go watch the Sox... oh wait." And then Sox fans throwing out a 4-digit number (ahem 2005) as the numerical version of *shots fired.*
It's a long winded, vicious hamster wheel of back-and-forth rivalry. But should it be any other way?
However, the White Sox organization has no hard feelings whatsoever towards their neighbors in the north.
This week, the White Sox congratulated the Cubs on their NLDS victory with a message on their video billboard off the Dan Ryan Expressway near U.S. Cellular Field. (See below.)
According to DNAinfo, who reported the billboard originally, White Sox' Senior VP of Communications, Scott Reifert, said they are happy to send some good vibes to the Cubs.
While I can't speculate on what could happen in the future, there is no question that we would congratulate them on a wonderful season in some manner.
Speaking of, back in 2005, the Cubs organization took out a full page add in the Chicago Tribune to congratulate the Sox on their World Series win.
Could the roles be reversed -- in say, a few weeks?
(Knock on wood, of course.)
