White Sox fans vs. Cubs fans

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

There are certain steps fans must abide by in order to be followers of either the Chicago White Sox or Cubs.

In order to be a fan of the Chicago White Sox and fit into a game at the Cell, follow these steps:

First, wear as much black as possible. It's important to intimidate other team's fans. Plus, the Cell looks better when everyone is in black. Team wear is acceptable as well.

Secondly, pay attention to the game. White Sox fans must know the ins-and-outs of baseball. Enjoy the sun and have fun, but be ready to cheer or voice your disapproval.

Thirdly, understand the history of the team. The White Sox have a long history, so study up on the facts.

Fourth, be prepared to tailgate. It's all about grills, bags and beer.

Fifth, visit Schaller's Pump at least once per season. It is the oldest restaurant/bar in Chicago.

Sixth, be prepared to laugh in the face of Cubs fans, who will find a number of non-baseball reasons why the north is better than the south.

Seventh, when commuting to a Sox game, take the ‘L.' You will be able to meet other great fans.

Eighth, never throw anything on the field. This is important, and includes homerun balls hit by the opposing team. Keep the field clean, and respect it.

Finally, learn about the White Sox rivals. This includes the Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs.

Being a Cubs fan requires some more faith.

First, don't be a White Sox fan. There should be no such thing as a fan of both teams. If you are, don't admit it while at Wrigley Field.

Secondly, become used to drinking beer or being around large crowds of indulgers.

Thirdly, be ready to spend money. A "prime" bleacher seat in the middle of July for a game against the Pirates could cost you $40.

Fourth, discover where to tailgate. Wrigley Field doesn't allow tailgating in their parking lots, so choose one of the 82 bars and restaurants nearby. Some favorites include Sluggers, Cubbie Bear, Murphys and Harry's Tavern.

Fifth, be ready to pay fees for your tickets. Face value for a ticket might say $9, but with employees trying to make games more accessible for everyone, $9 turns into $20.

Sixth, be prepared to despise the ownership. For Cubs fans, it is much easier putting blame on coaches, management, staff and Sox fans.

Seventh, show your pride and wear blue.

Eighth, subscribe to MLB Gameday Audio or MLB.TV (maybe even both.) This is useful if you don't live in the city or don't have access to WGN.

Ninth, watch Cubs games whenever you can, whether in person or on TV.

Tenth, join The Cubs Club at www.cubs.com.

Finally, always boo when the opposing team hits a homerun. If you are near where the ball was hit, grab it and toss it back onto the field.
