Yesterday we asked you: Can a Cubs fan cheer for the White Sox or vice versa? Here’s what some of you said…
“Absolutely! We have enough to divide us. Growing up as kids, we played sports that taught teamwork and admiration for talent. The Sox bowed out this year, but they will be a contender for a long time. I look in the stands and see smiles. Need more of that in everyday life. Go White Sox.” — Dan Becker
“I for one cannot cheer for the Sox. I am a Cub fan through and through. I think the main reason I feel this way is because I have so many relatives who are Sox fans and they have been terrible through the years. My mom was a Cubs fan and I’m proud to follow in her footsteps. I am a Cubs fan not a Chicago fan!” — Jan Stammis
“Never. Like ‘Friday Night Lights’ — North Side vs. South Side. We weren’t even allowed to watch the White Sox on TV.” — Bob Allen
“Our teams are our teams but our home is our home and we support our own! Just like a family we protect our own and encourage our own, our home is our blood. We are all family first in this city!” — John J. Harnicker IV
“No! You’re talking about a city that trips out if somebody says they’re from Chicago and they live in Evanston. You’re expecting the North Side to cheer for a whole different team. I can’t wait to see people trip out when the Bears are playing in Arlington Heights and they called themselves the Chicago Bears.” — Chris McKellar
“A Chicagoan should cheer for all Chicago teams regardless. I’m a Chicago fan. I cheer for all of our teams to do well. Yes, I have preferences, but they don’t matter when a hometown team teaches the pinnacle of success.” — Sandra Ann
“Never. Any Cubs fan would never cheer for the Sox. Just saying.” — Rob Loureiro
“Nope. Not this Cubs fan. My loyalty is to the North Side. Never cheered for the Sox, never will.” — Nick Bacoulis
“Yes because it’s the same city and that’s whom the sports are really for. A fan of the game will have his team but can still cheer on another if their team is eliminated because they love the game.” — Muhammad Skinnard
“Longtime Sox fan here, but I am married to a longtime Cubs fan. Yes, Lori cheers for the Sox when they’re not playing the Cubs. She says she considers herself biSoxual.” — Dan Palmer
“If you’re John Cusack, who played Buck Weaver in ‘Eight Men Out,’ yes. If you’re just a fan who can’t stomach your favorite team losing, so you need to hop on your rival’s bandwagon, it’s just corny.” — Matt Rago
