Chicago Cubs fans are hungry for another championship win but so is every fan of every other team in MLB? What makes a true Cubs fan?

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago was not easy for baseball fans. There were literal fights between the Chicago White Sox fans and the Chicago Cubs Northside fans, and this continues today. Imagine being a Northside fan and living in the south or vice versa. You always thought a mob was going to come in and drum you out of your side of town.

As I watched the cross-town classic between these two neighbors and viewed the Sox fans in Wrigley, I have to admit, I was impressed.

You and I both know that the Chicago Cubs have a much cleaner, neater history than the boys from the Southside. Butt as I watched the crowds gathered in Wrigley and saw how passionate the Sox fans were about their team? I admired something that I think is important, if not the most important part of being a fan – loyalty.
