However, Wilbon has also publicly displayed fondness toward the Illinois Fighting Illini Men's Basketball team during their run to the 2005 NCAA National Championship game, as well as the Chicago White Sox during their 2005 World Series Championship run, despite the heated rivalries these teams hold respectively to the Northwestern Wildcats and the Chicago Cubs.

Pardon the Interruption - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6422 words)
Wilbon did claim victory in Toss Up on the March 28, 2006, episode of the show, however, and has also "won" on episodes where Kornheiser is replaced by a guest host.
Wilbon was infuriated that the show had to talk about baseball with the World Series just barely over, and continued to harass Kornheiser about his love of the "Yanks-Sawks" rivalry throughout the rest of that day's show.
Michael Wilbon, occasionally, can be seen on The Sports Reporters, a show on ESPN airing Sunday mornings, where he and other sportswriters discuss the week's biggest stories.
