That's a Sweep!If you're a Chicago Cubs fan, this past weekend provided a much needed sweep. Not only was this series was against the crosstown rivals, the White Sox, it was a match-up with the American League Central Division leaders. The White Sox entered the series with a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Cubs were swept by the Tampa Bay Rays.
On The Score today, much of the debate centered upon the hatred White Sox management has toward the Cubs. The White Sox have always been treated like the Cubs' little sister. The Cubs have a larger fan base in Chicago, the greater metropolitan area, and nation-wide than the White Sox. Leading up to last weekend's series, Ozzie Guillen and Kenny Williams have taken stabs at the Cubs. Ozzie, the White Sox manager, has always taken jabs at the Cubs. He always talks about the rats at Wrigley Field and the urine smell. It's easy to ignore him. Now that Kenny Williams, the general manager, has decided to share his thoughts makes me wonder. He told Cubs fans to "have a happy anniversary." For those who don't follow baseball, this season is the 100th anniversary of the Cubs last World Series win.
I have a brief message for Kenny. Your team won the 2005 World Series against the Houston Astros. I'm happy that you brought a baseball title to Chicago. This city deserved one after all these years. I'm jealous that 99% of my family can say their team finally won a World Series. My team didn't, and I want one badly. Isn't that enough to taunt Cubs fans?
