  1. Agreed - the folks in the organization (the FO to what degree(?), the players, and everyone else that is affiliated with the Sox) are placed in an unfortunate spot that they should not have been put in due to Jerry wanting this to be some fairy tale reunion. This is a fubar for the organization and a lot of the goodwill has been erased with how the hiring of TLR went down and this news. It's disappointing to think that we can't all feel the same excitement or positive vibes continue from the end of season with the individual accolades and the potential of having a manager we would all feel good about and the additions/subtractions that are made with the roster on the field. Hopefully the Sox can turn this thing around and TLR erases this hangover (pun intended) the Sox have been riding since his hire.

    2020 Election Thoughts

    I have a routine of websites I frequent, and NONE of them are politically focused. However, you can just feel an aura of positivity on those and everywhere again. Feels good.

    Agreed. I do miss having access to additional options and free weights galore.

    White Sox Radio Headed to ESPN 1000

    There's free apps that can allow for such. I get we may be looking for ways for people/fans to have additional access or ways to potentially stumble upon the Sox on radio. However, fans originating from radio or utilizing it as their only means to follow a game is in the past.

    Those are some great remarks. The Sox have had some bright spots at the 1B/DH spot over the last 30 years.

    I still very much remember and enjoyed your 05 month recap videos. Especially with the DJ HR calls.

    Very sorry to hear that, Alex.

    Hibernation Plans?

    Very good suggestions - thank you for the ideas and responses. Yoga's a great idea to put into action with my routine/cadence to remain active. I have always been intrigued in utilizing it as a form of cross-training. I took an intro class at the beginning of the year and was signed up to continue it into the spring through my parks department that was cut short due to the pandemic. I was very much digging it, and I would benefit to up my frequency during the course of the week to 2-3 times. I've been a big fan of using YT for workouts and ideas since moving from the gym to my basement this year. You're right about finding a way to get outside. As much as I dread/dislike the idea about going out in the dark/cold, I always feel better for it. I need to hold myself to keep that up when the weather turns. I do need to challenge myself to connect with folks more - I'm very comfortable operating in a bubble (no pun intended). And I've got to come up with a couple goals/challenges of some things I'd like to accomplish by the time we move the clocks forward again. Great stuff, folks - keep 'em coming! I'm sure we all could use some thought medicine!

    STAR WARS Everything

    I love the vibe of this show so much. I have of course have seen the movies hit/miss in different ways, but this makes me very curious about the ventures I've never seen - (i.e. The Clone Wars, etc.).

    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Outside of the way he represented himself as not being racist, he deserves credit for responding well.

    What's up, Fellas! Been too long. I'd check in on rare occasion over the years, but the excitement of this Sox season pulled me into being a daily lurker again just to see what the masses were thinking/saying about the happenings with our beloved. It's funny, I probably had not logged in like over 6 years! It's great to see this place still humming along and many of the familiar names from back in the day.

    There's the greatest Jeremy Reed fan ever known! I've popped through without logging in on occasion, and I've been lurking with greater frequency with the excitement of this last season. Despite all the changes in social media/interaction, I love seeing this place still running strong, and it's been great seeing all the old regulars in action throughout everything.

    2020 College Football thread

    I feel compelled to reply to this. 😊 That's one of those calls very close, you could totally justify it going either way. Very happy with the outcome, and though I was texting my friends the offense wasn't ready to go for 2 etc., kudos to Allen for going for it.
