I've followed both teams for years. I attended my first game at Wrigley in 1985 & was in the left-field bleachers (front row!) for Mark Prior's first home game. There were many others too!

I think it’s certainly possible and reasonable for someone to be a fan of one team and follow the other baseball team in town too. I am a fan of the Sox, that’s the team I’m emotionally invested in. However, I admit (without a blush) to following the Cubs. I am a fan of baseball. I don’t see why that’s weird to some Cubs and Sox fans.

If I were in NYC, or Detroit or where ever I’d still be a fan of the Sox but I’d follow that local team and wish to discuss that team. And in that arena, if someone pounded the Sox, I’d stick up for my team.

Now regarding my post totals in SB Nation. You're right, I don't post much at all at the White Sox SB Nation group. However I do post regularly at White Sox Interactive, the Sox old newsgroup and a couple other Sox sites.

Come on by White Sox Interactive, there are several Cubbie fans who post there regularly. Then there are Cubbie fans from BCB who lurk at White Sox Interactive.
