White Sox Pitcher Almost Throws No-Hitter – Nation Still Watches Cubs

Chicago Cubs Fans Celebration

(Minneapolis, MN / Cincinnati, OH) – Last night, something incredibly exciting was happening in the baseball world. The Nation turned its eyes to watch something special – something it loved to see happen.

The Chicago Cubs shutout the Cincinnati Reds 3-0.

Elsewhere in the world of baseball, there apparently some other mild excitement as a pitcher for the White Sox, no one really knows or cares to find out his name, took a no-hitter into the 9th inning against the Minnesota Twins. But the Nation didn’t watch. As usual, the Nation preferred to watch the Cubs.

“Yeah, I guess I heard it this morning [that the White Sox almost had a no-hitter],” the Nation said Wednesday. “But the Cubs were on, and they were winning. Why would I watch some minor league team over the Cubs?”

When corrected that the White Sox were indeed a fellow Major League team, the Nation was unphased. “Ok, whatever. I’d still rather watch the Cubs. I mean, I guess the Cubs game ended before that White Sox game, so I could have switched over. But there’s post-game wrapup of the Cubs game, Sportscenter highlights of the Cubs game, and I have to write something on it for my blog while it’s fresh in my mind.”

“No-hitter or not, I just don’t see why anyone would choose to watch the White Sox over the Cubbies,” the Nation continued. “Maybe if the White Sox had won a championship in the last 50 years, I’d be more interested. But until they do, I’m sticking to my Cubs.”

    The Chicago White Sox have thousands of fans all over the world. Here, I may consider myself as one of the big fans of this wonderful team. Whenever I’ve time I try to attend their games, though sometimes it becomes a little difficult to get White Sox tickets and this is due to these great fans that the team has. Chicago White Sox tickets are a little pricy or hard to be found but the team, as a professional and essential team of MLB, worth any price to watch their games. And when we love a team we try as much as possible these financial obstacles.
