  • Favorite Sox moment
    The bittersweet 2005 season: my Dad, the person who made my entire family Sox fans, passed away in February of that year. He never got a chance to see them win the Series, but, as many people said to me, he had a hand in their winnings. Sure, it's cheesy, but it's also very heartwarming

    Technology catch-all thread

    I received the Ecobee 3 as a Christmas gift a few years back, and I'm a fan so far. I chose it over the Nest because Ecobee allows you to add room sensors. It comes with one sensor, and I purchased 2 more so that each bedroom in my house has it's own sensor. It has very similar functionality that Soxbadger listed for Nest. And yes, do go through ComEd to purchase your smart thermostat; I just bought my mom the Ecobee 4 for $100 on Black Friday thanks to ComEd's rebates (looks like it's up to $149 now). https://www.comedmarketplace.com/

    2018 Video Game thread

    I saw this on Kokaku, which may help the running aspect for you... Experiment with the controls. In the “controls” part of the settings menu, you can change a few things. Everyone will have their own preferences, but experiment with “Standard FPS” for first-person controls, which moves a few things around and, crucially, turns sprinting into a familiar toggle of the left thumbstick. Also mess around with “Running Mode,” since you can switch between holding a button to run or tapping it. I also recommend lowering the “Aim/Look Dead Zone” to zero under both first-and third-person controls. Full link: https://kotaku.com/tips-for-playing-red-dead-redemption-2-1830016535

    Engel: Gold Glove CF Finalist

    Adam Engel's impressive defense this year has made him a Rawlings Gold Glove finalist for centerfield in the American League, although he faces some pretty stiff competition:

    Any idea what this may cost? I have a jersey who's name I'd like to change.

    Your first Album collection/First concert attended

    I made terrible musical choices as a kid. Pretty sure my first cassette was MC Hammer's "2 Legit to Quit" (edit: LOL it was actually called "The Funky Headhunter" hahaha). First CD was Ace Of Base "Happy Nation". The first concert I went to was Q101's Twisted Christmas 5 in 1998. Beck, Cake, Goo Goo Dolls, Garbage, Third Eye Blind, Soul Coughing and Everlast played.

    Jim Thome Day Info

    This is a very valid question that still stumps me. According to the official White Sox website, "Tailgating is allowed in White Sox parking lots A-G and L before every home game until game time. Parking lots open two hours prior to game time." So a few years ago, we show up two hours before the game, and the lots already have a bunch of cars in it. So next game, we show up 3 hours prior to game time, and STILL there are cars in the lots already tailgating. I am curious how soon they actually open up the parking lots. My group now always tries to arrive 2.5 to 3 hours before the game, park in lot B, and we are still in the 3rd or 4th row.

    Damn, that's nice. I live in the suburbs, so by time we got out of the stadium, walked to our car and drove home it was near 1am.
