Chicago loves its pizza –that's pretty well known. Chicago also loves its sports. But, when it comes to baseball we are a city divided, and it's been that way for over a century. Indeed, 2016 marks the 110th anniversary of the only World Series version of the Crosstown Classic, a Cubs-Sox Showdown with the "Hitless Wonders" White Sox defeating the Cubs, four games to two in 1906.
Times have changed, though. The White Sox broke an 87-year-old drought in 2005, and the Cubs are now battling for MLB supremacy in an attempt to break the "curse of the billy goat," and end its 107 year-long championshipless streak. Meanwhile, the 2016 White Sox's biggest star, Chris Sale, is cutting up replica jerseys and being sent home. The Cubs are full of young talent, but the Sox are a .500 team. Can the Cubs break the curse? Can the Cubs finally shed the goat? Can the Sox put a dent in the Cubs' 2016 run towards the World Series? All that remains to be seen. The Crosstown Classic will provide one side of town with mini-bragging rights for a spell. For sure, it will spark debate. What better way to have a debate than to do it with beer, cocktails, food, and of course pizza.
