View Full Version : Royals The Obama backlash

I realize the Obama pr machine meticulously debated the jersey he would wear out in Busch stadium last week, so that he wouldn't be booed by the hometown StL crowd. But I'm curious if they realized the backlash from the cross-state hometown Royals fans by wearing that crappy Sox jersey. Do any of you now think less of our President for wearing that crappy White Sox jersey when he threw out the first pitch last week?

He could come out in a Raiders Jersey and a Broncos cap and I couldn't think any less of him.

BTW: You may want to post this crap in the DC, that's what it's there for.

Would you rather he sucked up and wore a Cardinals jersey? He's from the South Side of Chicago, and he's always been a White Sox fan.

And what does that have to do with the Royals?

you know this kind of tells you something about the state of football versus the state of baseball. People are kinda meh about it here with baseball, maybe it would be different had it been a yanks/ bo sox game and he chose a jersey to wear.

But I have a feeling, if a president were to wear a raiders jersey at a public function, some here might think slightly different about that.

By the way, I did see King Carl present Dick Cheney an Chiefs jersey with Cheney 04 on the back :)

I have more respect for him wearing his team's stuff. The lazy, fake politician thing to do would have been to wear a Cards jersey or a National League jersey.

And for the record, I didn't vote for Obama and I hate the dirty South-siders.

hey fraz, I've always wondered... where does all the cubs hate come from for cards fans? I mean, it's not like the cubs have ever won anything in your lifetime... where is the rivalry? your team has won a few world championships... it's not like the cubs have really been competitive, isn't hating the cubs like hating the retarded younger brother?

that never made any sense to me. I mean, as a chiefs fan, I understand hating the broncos and raiders. they've both won a super bowl in my lifetime. but the cubs haven't won shit. what's there to hate?

For me, it comes from being surrounded by the fuckers every day of my life because I work in Chicago and live in the Chicago area, and God I've learned to hate the Cubs over the 22 years I've been up here. Beyond that, they are our main rivals and despite the fact they haven't won shit for a 100 years they are still obnoxious as hell. Any Cubs/Cards game played in either St. Louis or Chicago will be at least one-third enemy fans.

That's why there isn't really hate coming from the STL side - it's more of a playful, rub-your-nose-in-it kind of rivalry.

I don't think Cardinal fans really HATE any other team's fans. Probably the closest was the Mets of the 80's. This city hated the team, the fans, the city, you name it.

Chicago is a rivalry based on geography only - and the fact that 2 of our 3 pro sports teams share a division.

I'd say you were right, but I have a few good pals who are cards fans. they fucking HATE the cubs almost as I hate the broncos/john elway. they literally hate, with a passion, all things cub(s).

There's no PR or spin here. I'm not a fan of Obama, but he's a huge lifetime White Sox fan. He would have worn it to Wrigley. MLB actually tried to talk him into wearing some neutral All-Star game branded jacket but he insisted on wearing his team's colors, so good for him.

So, because Cardinal fans mocked you for rooting for a bad team, you sought revenge by rooting for a team that's even worse? That's like getting over on the dude who just kicked your ass by jumping in front of a moving bus. LMAO

It doesn't bother me,hell someone has to root for the losers.I will tell you that once I made a trip to Wrigley for the 1st ever inter-league season(they played the Royals) I was hooked with the Cubbies.I love that ballpark,it's fans and just the history as a whole.
