Contrary to popular belief, not everybody outside of Los Angeles (and probably Cleveland) is rooting for the Chicago Cubs to win the World Series. Several Midwestern fan bases despise the Cubbies, perhaps none more so than followers of their South Side brethren, the White Sox.
Charlotte Hornets big man and loyal Pale Hose backer Frank Kaminsky has gone to great lengths to reminds the Cubs that he hates them. He even sported his own Steve Bartman jersey to the Bulls game last night.
That seems simple enough, doesn't it, Cubs fans? Kaminsky hates you. He doesn't even know you, and he hates your guts. He hopes all the bad things in life happen to you, and nobody else but you.
Personally, I think the Bartman jersey is weak sauce. Every real Cubs fan knows that it was in fact shortstop Alex Gonzalez's error that swung Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS. If Kaminsky were to wear a Gonzalez jersey, now that would be top-notch trolling.
Naturally, the Cubbies' official Twitter account hasn't taken things lying down:
Kaminsky has continued to respond, resulting in a Twitter flame war thread you can comb through here, but these are the highlights:
If he keeps this up, Kaminsky will wind up in the pantheon of celebrity White Sox fans, alongside Barack Obama and the shirtless father-son duo who beat up a Royals first base coach.
