General Question

So, if Yankees play the Mets, it is called the Subway Series, is there a nickname for games between the Cubs and the White Soxes?

Asked by boxing (1048points) October 1st, 2008

And, how about Dodgers and Angels, Giants and A’s? I don’t even hear any nicknames for local rivalries in other sports around New York either.

The “El” series.

The Windy City Classic

The Lou and Ozzie show

As I sit here thinking these up I am happily waiting in the Brewers Virtual Waiting Room trying to get more tickets for the NLDS.

Crosstown Classic is what we’ve always called it.

PrancingUrchin is right on. Crosstown Classic. Although, as excited as I am that not only my beloved Cubbies have another shot at the Series, but the Sox as well, I have to say that were there to be a Cubs/White Sox world series, I fear the city will explode.

…...hence Jack’s “disaster” answer…

After asking and searching around, here is what I got:

Yankees – Mets: Subway Series
Cubs – White Soxes: Crosstown Classic
Dodgers – Angels: Freeway Series
Giants – Athletics: Bay Bridge Series

When the Giants played the A’s in the World Series, it was “the Battle of the Bay.”

What would a Houston Astros – Texas Rangers series be called? (“This just in: Hell freezes over! Details after the game.”)
