    Greetings from a Sox fan.

    Just stopping by to say hello. I'm pretty excited about the upcoming series this weekend, should be three hard-fought battles. I'll be at all three games, first time in Cincy...anything I should check out in the city and at the park?

    Just wanted to say hello, and wish you guys luck, so good luck and may the best team win.

    My boyfriend is a ChiSox fan, and we have a pizza riding on the outcome of the series. (We both eat. Loser buys.)

    My brother is a Sox fan and we will be at Saturday's game as well.

    God I hope there aren't as many of you as there are Cubs fans.

    Actually, I hope the Reds pull it off, but I appreciate the sentiment.

    Quite a few Sox fans are coming, but believe me, we're not like Cubs fans. Sox fans and Cubs fans are like night and day. We hate Cubs fans (and the Cubs for that matter) more than any other team's fans, and I can guarantee that.

    I see we have things in common. I think you'll do just fine, Mr. chisox05, just fine...
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I can vouch for this statement speaking as a member of the day contingent.

    You'll be happy to know that the Cubs are starting Glendon Rusch tomorrow against the Tigers, plus Barrett's suspension appeal will be decided by tomorrow.

    Re: Greetings from a Sox fan.

    as for things to check out, the reds HOF, has a perfect exhibit for you, (unless it somehow is a sensitive subject) the 1919 World Series exhibit, with detail on the scandals (from a reds perspective of course) and you can visit the hall for only $5 before the game if you show them your ticket for that day, if you like adventure, the Purple People Bridge just opened a bridge climb today, and then you can walk the bridge to Newport and check out the Levee if you have children or like fish, there is a wonderful aquarium, Comedy club, (which is featuring Charlie Murphy this weekend, if you can get tickets) shopping and bars. there is also the Freedom Center, which shows the Underground railroads a block from the stadium. And as for bars, hit up Main Strauss in Covington (Ky), across the other bridges, or hit up Gameday, a good sports bar (but strong local ties, but just express your hatred for the Cubbies and you will fit in anywhere)

    So do we.
    So do many other fans of other ballclubs.
    In fact, I believe every baseball fan in existence hates, Cubs fans - with the possible exception of some Cubs fans.
