Cubs or White Sox? Two Cole Kmet posts show his North Side allegiance


Friday, Chicago sports Twitter dug up this doozy from the Bears second-round draft pick, Notre Dame tight end Cole Kmet.

Now, that tweet could mean any number of things. Kmet, a Lake Barrington native, could be a White Sox fan. Fans ran with the tweet, assuming the 21-year-old is a South Side fan through and through.

On the other hand, the tweet is from 2014, the last season of the Cubs' rebuild under Theo Epstein and Co. They finished in last place that year, so perhaps Kmet was merely expressing his frustration over the club's struggles.

Based on two old social media posts discovered on Saturday, Kmet might be a Cubs fan after all:

If one thing is certain, it's that Bears media members will need to solve this mystery in Kmet's next press session. Chicagoans can all get behind the Bears, but you have to choose between the Cubs or White Sox.
