Rivers Sticking With The Sox

Newport, R.I. - Celtics Coach Doc Rivers didn't share Ivan Carter's disappointment over the Minnesota Twins' loss in that one-game playoff on Tuesday. Rivers after all, is a native of Maywood, Ill., and a lifelong White Sox fan. Rivers added that he wouldn't have any problem picking a team if the Chicago Cubs and White Sox both made it to the World Series.

"C'mon," Rivers said, smiling. "White Sox."

Rivers said that growing up outside of Chicago, he used to be a fan of both teams. "I actually liked the Cubs until they traded [former batting champion] Bill Madlock" in 1976, Rivers said. "After they that, I couldn't cheer for them anymore."

Then, realizing the city he now represents, Rivers added, "I'm cheering for the Sox in the World Series. Sox, Sox, Sox. Red Sox, White Sox. One of them will be in World Series. I'm cheering for the Sox."

So, if the White Sox and Red Sox meet in the next round, you best belief he'll be siding with the Sox.

Peter: how is this not NBA related?
It is a quote from a NBA coach... maybe it isn't what you want to read... but the season has not started... be patient.

Seriously - this is a misplaced post. People come here for Wizards related information.

What did you morons think the post was going to be about when you clicked on the title? Some random guy named Rivers going clothes shopping? If it doesn't look interesting to you, just skip over it.

Hey, with the work these two put in the blog, I'm perfectly okay with them using it to occasionally talk about their other teams in the off season.
