White Sox fans
Discussing the culture surrounding the Cubs is almost pointless in its redundancy: the history of disappointment, the circus of Wrigleyville development, annoying dregs of post-college, entitled children that comprise much of the fanbase. Regardless, when the team does well it’s tough not to get excited and squeeze onto the bandwagon. With the team’s success this fall, fans of the White Sox (statistically one of the least-supported teams in baseball) aggressively took to social media to taunt Cubs fans, giant “L” flags were made, and at least one bar on the South Side offered free drinks when the Cubs performed poorly. You have to hand it to Sox fans, they sure are diehard—as long as their fandom doesn’t require buying tickets or watching games or anything.
