Presidential hopeful & Chicago White Sox fan Barack Obama did what any White Sox fan would do if they were on tv: take a shot at Cubs fans.
Obama joked about the stereotype of Cubs fans, who probably are tired of being described as partying people-watchers instead of serious baseball fans.
“You go to Wrigley Field, you have a beer, beautiful people up there,” Obama said, according to transcripts released by ESPN. “People aren’t watching the game. It’s not serious. White Sox, that’s baseball.”
Was this a dumb move or a brilliant move? Think about it….
Obama is going to win Illinois in the election pretty easily anyways, so making fun of the much bigger fanbase in the state isn’t really a big deal. (You may also think that there aren’t people out there stupid enough to base their selection on arbitrary things such as being a fan of a particular sports team. You would be wrong. Some people ARE that dumb.)
And which fanbase is one of the most hated & the most ridiculed fanbases in all of sports? The Chicago Cubs. The majority of the country hates Cubs fans. The Cubs are the best team in baseball right now, which makes them even more hate-able.
It just makes perfect sense to rip on the Cubs if you’re Obama.
Your move, John McCain. Time to make fun of New England Patriots fans.
