Cubs-Brewers: Can't we all get along?

Before you post flames -- No, I'm not suggesting that Cubs fans suddenly start cheering for the Brewers or vice-versa.  Or that people should stop talking trash.  I'm just suggesting that we can have civil dialogue even if we don't like the other team.

The animosity that goes on is really disappointing, because this could develop into a rivalry as good as Cubs-Cardinals over time.  While I don't root for the Cards, what I love about the rivalry is that it's not unusual for Cubs fans and Cardinals fans to be able to talk baseball without posturing or attacking each other.  I'd really like to see the Cubs-Brewers develop into this.

Note to Brewers fans: I am not calling anyone out with this post -- there are jerks on both sides and good fans on both sides.

I have friends that are Brewers fans and can have good conversations with -- I suspect many Cubs fans do and a lot of Brewers fans have Cub fan friends.  Especially those of us that live within an hour of the state line.  A few of us have had a nice chat with brewfan2 tonight -- that doesn't mean he won't be rooting for Dempster to get rocked tomorrow or we won't be rooting for Parra to get shelled -- but the discussion doesn't need to get ugly.

I realize there are going to be people that disagree with me and will say so.  That's the nature of a blog.  Please try to keep it civil, though . . . .
