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.
