With apologies to General Custer, the most fierce North versus South battle is waged every year in the city of Chicago.
Many Chicagoans have two favorite teams — the Cubs or the Sox — and whichever team is playing their nemesis across town.
The Cubs, often referred to as the lovable losers, have a rich history and tradition. Ernie. Harry. Goats. Bartman.
Sox fans point to their team’s rich tradition as well, which has its own distinct flavor, but Sox lore often gets swallowed up in the monstrous popularity of Cubdom.
So who has the best fans? We’re trying to answer that question on nbcchicago.com.
