mixed emotions

Well, my beloved city of Chicago FINALLY has a team going to the World Series.........the White Sox. Obviously, I wish it were my Cubbies but I will cheer for the Sox. My reasoning??? Its about time we got title back here in Chi-town and if the Sox can make it, maybe there's some hope for the Cubs someday. In addition, I dislike Houston and absolutely detest St. Louis. Soooo, I would like to see the White Sox kick the ever-living crap out of the Cardinals. Lets just hope those ghetto south-siders can maintain their composure and keep the rioting, looting and fires to a miminum :)

ghetto south sider's; let watch what we call white sox fans! they are as classy as any other fan.

since the cubs didn't make it very far, all the cubs fans don't want to miss out on the spirit of the sox, so let's make this about our city winning a champioship and jump on sox.

If the Cubbies would actually go to the World Series, the mystique of them being the perpetual underdog cubbies would leave as well. Trust me, as a Brewers fan, I can relate to having a losing team, no really, always losing as in just reached .500 this season for the first time in 12 years!

yeah, thanks for inviting me msu77......see if I ever invite you up to Lambeau Field again since you're not a Packer fan.

I'm not exactly a Sox fan either, but I suppose I'm happy that they might bring some sports recognition back to Chicago...

Although, I also want the Astros to beat the Cardinals...so if it's a Texas vs. Illinois World Series - I'm just going to cheer for whoever is winning the series because hey, I can't lose either way :)

Tori,
The best place to watch a packers game is not in Lambeau, your fingers will turn purple and freeze off. The only game I have ever seen there were pre-season. The best place to watch the Packers is in a warm bar or in the comfort of one's home.

You're wrong Eddie - Lambeau is the best place, even in the freezing cold...you just need to get yourself a hot chocolate (some prefer beer), and bratwurst pizza to warm you up!

Green Bay and the Packers are an embarassment to the Southeastern civilized portion of the state of Wisconsin, the only civilized area here. Trust me, I have been to the rest.

You're gettin on my nerves Eddie...

Southeastern civilized portion of the state

Not sure I would consider anything north of Ozaukee county to be in the southeastern part of the state. I won't even comment on the "only civilized part" portion of the comment...

All of Wisconsin is awesome. Green Bay is a blast, Door County is quite, quaint and classy and only parts of Milwaukee are actually nice. Kenosha and Racine are mostly dumps, and LaCrosse is beautiful. Forgive me but Southeast Wisconsin isn't much to write home about (except for the outlet malls)

I like Wisconsin - except for Madison, too liberal for my liking...too many hippies.

Having grown up in the SE part of the state, then livning in the NW part of the state for 6 years, and the SW part of the state for another 5 before returning to the SE, I have to agree with you on that.

(except for the outlet malls)

And Miller Park!

Door County is quite, quaint and classy

Or at least it would be if we were better able to keep the FIBs out... <GDR>

yah, you fucking illinois bastards

As Stuffle has pointed out, most WI residents in Green Bay and other parts of the state highly don't like Illini visiting. However, SE Wisconsin doesn't really hold these prejudices. Kenosha is a poopy hole, as is Racine, though I would tend to agree that part of Milwaukee are pretty neat.

LaCrosse is my favorite area of the state, geography wise, that is.

I would have to say that the communist level of taxation is what I like best about Wisconsin :)

Door County would be NOTHING without FIBS and FISHTABS (fucking illinois shitheads towing a boat)...like my parents. Our moola keeps the penisula alive.

FISHTABS

Oooh! A new acronym. I hadn't heard that one before... I like it.

Getting back to Sox, I like them they keep my feet warm on my hardwood floors and lets me to do my best tom cruise impersonation of old time rock and roll

i'd pay to see that pappy! I am wearing red warm-ups, a blue cubs shirt and a red/blue Cubs zip-up today. I'm no johnny-come-lately Sox fan and not afraid to show my losing sports team some lovin'.

Pappy,

You're just jealous that you're not a midwesterner. :)

Eddie - I used to work in LaCrosse and have to agree - very nice area. I went to college straight across the Mississippi in Minnesota. Eau Claire is pretty too. I miss the changing of the leaves. I don't really get that down here in Texas. It was 92 today. Freaking ridiculous.

Eau Claire, Pretty? Are you nuts, it's the biggest piece of shit in the midwest. I am there every other week for work!

 
At 6:27 PM , Blogger Tori said...

so if a place doesn't have chipolte or a PF Changs, its a piece of shit?

 
At 9:24 PM , Blogger msu77 said...

tori, you're the biggest spoiled brat I have ever met, so don't start with me!

 
At 10:42 PM , Blogger Tori said...

it takes one to know one :)
