My sister moved back to Chicago with her family after living and working in several places across the country since college. They are White Sox fans (as is our Mother) and I am a Cubs fan (as is our Father). A house divided! However, I found the perfect (admittedly belated) housewarming gift for her; A gigantic garden/outdoor White Sox themed bobble-head! Just what we all want and need, right?
I just had to leave this little poem in the card...
Bobby Bobblehead needs a new home.
Or else, he will be left to roam.
For at my house he can't abide,
'Cause only Cubbies fans reside.
He asked if there might possibly be,
someone to be his new family.
I said, "I know just the place,
and they have bought a brand new space!"
So please make room on your porch or deck
for Bobby to wobble his unsteady neck.
And all those who walk by will see
that who lives here is a Sox family.
If you'd like to check out the Chicagoland (or any MLB) baseball fandom by zip-code in a REALLY COOL interactive map, click here. Just know the White Sox fandom is a blip of black in a sea of Cubby blue because all is right with the world!
