I swear, if the Cubs make it to the Series I will root for whoever represents the American League. I'll even temporarily suspend my principles and root for the Red Sox if I have to.
Its funny -- to a man, my Cub fan friends do NOT want to face the White Sox in the World Series. Anybody but the White Sox. They'd rather not win the pennant. Why? The White Sox already have a World Title. For us to lose to the Cubs would not be shameful. But if the Cubs are beaten by the White Sox, they would never hear the end of it. To quote my office mate, "It would be better not to go at all."
