Baseball Told the Right WayIn-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!
Is there really a fan group that is more "Knowledgeable" than any other?
This past weekend Curt and I met with a bunch of other friends that are huge baseball fans and we began to debate. One of the topics was that of which teams fans are the most knowledgeable. The teams that were represented were the Cubs, Red Sox, White Sox, and the Tigers.
White Sox fans argue that the Cubs fans are Dumb and that we know nothing about the game. How can anyone determine this. Yes we sell out very often and there are many fans that are there because its the place to be over the summer, but there are an equal or greater amount who can tell you who pitched the night before in Triple A. I would argue that White Sox fans don't even goto the games so how would they know anything about baseball. Curt and I went to see the White Sox Vs. the D-Rays on Saturday and spent $26 on a seat. I think we were six of a possible 10,000 fans at most that attended the game. The White Sox benched Magglio for one of my favorite players, Ross Gload. The fans surrounding us had no idea who he was and I had to explain to them that Gload came from The Rockies and is a pretty decent hitter. At Wrigley, that wouldn't happen. The entire experience was terrible on Saturday, I ordered Chicken strips and waited for an entire inning for them to be finished. What happened to walk-up service?
Curt believes that Red Sox fans are the most knowledgeable. He really didn't go into detail why he thinks this way but I am sure he will comment on that on the board.
I personally believe it is impossible to determine this argument because there is no way to figure out who knows what in every stadium. I would love to hear from everyone about why they think that their teams fans are the smartest. Leave your team name and argument on the comment board.
