    Not to enjoy another's misfortune, but I can only laugh.

    2020 Catch-All

    Two things - 1) I like how the Christmas tree was posted after a question about toilet paper. Toilet paper to future toilet paper. 2) I'm kind of against social media for the most part. I do accept that many companies of interest (i.e. breweries ) have Instagram as their main source of communication as a website. I don't have an Instagram. I've been able to get by and check in on those public accounts of interest without having an account by just having those familiar URLs in my history and internet browsing cadence. However, today - it appears when you go to any public Instagram, it requires you to log-in or have an account. Boo to that.

    2020 NBA Offseason Thread

    I hear you. The Oladipo news is troubling. Including his college days, he's been a fan favorite for Indiana. I understand he'll never be paid star $$$ in Indy, but I'm not fully certain he's done enough by league standards to get it in the wallet yet. I'm White Sox and then Indiana/Indy everything else. However, being plugged into the Chicago sports scene, I'm excited and encouraged to see the direction the Bulls are headed.

    I'm greasywheels121, and I support the Knicks being in purgatory.

    2020 NBA Offseason Thread

    I could be very wrong; however, I bet it's the LeBron approach to assuring he's maximizing the paycheck. I'm interested in seeing where Oladipo lands, with all the smoke about him wanting out of Indiana.

    Jose Abreu wins 2020 AL MVP

    The best news of the off-season. Well deserved; congrats, Pito!
  7. 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.

    Hibernation Plans?

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

    Hibernation Plans?

    Hello, Old Friends - Maybe this could be lumped into the mega-covid thread; however, I'm going side piece here - With the weather turning or will be soon enough to minimize/eliminate what I consider to be the outdoor freedom from this new way of living, what plans/routines/goals do you have for the winter months? I'm already feeling like my train is slipping off the tracks a bit with such. I'm an early morning workout person, and I'll run/walk as much as I can outside. However, the joy/pleasure of such is not the same when it's dark/cold. We got a rower for the basement, and I have a couple of kettlebells and resistance bands (#lean/mean gym) to utilize as well. Anyway, looking for some inspiration/motivation/ideas from the fine ST crowd. LMK what you've got planned or are doing.

    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.).
