    Classy bunch in Minnesota they are....

    Mike North: He gone!

    North was great in the afternoons; in the mornings, he flat out sucked, and over the past 3 years, it's gotten progressively worse. The Score has been in decline for the past couple of years, Boers and Berstein are hit or miss depending on the day and Hubner is awful. Matt Abbatacola, Laurence Holmes and Jason Goff are the only two personalities worth listening to on 670 now, IMO.

    Sox have most to gain in City Series

    No way the Sox have more to gain, especially with the Cubs coming off a SWEEP at the hands of Tampa Bay......I don't care how much more improved TB is this season, we're coming off completing a sweep, their coming off getting swept.

    Where most Sox fans live

    Born and raised in NW Indiana (Gary). Was an easy 25-minute drive to the ballpark, so started going to Sox games with the old man at the age of 5. Live in KC now; the Royals are dreadful, but I get to see the Sox when they are in town for SUPER cheap (plus great seats because few go to see the Royals unless they're playing the Red Sox, Yankees or Cardinals). Moving back to Indianapolis soon, which, for some weird reason, is a Cubs town (they have no problem cheering for the CHICAGO Cubs, yet have the nerve to get on me for cheering for the CHICAGO Bears). Go figure.

    Old Frank Thomas article by Rick Reilly

    To this day, I STILL believe that if Frank had been 100% in the '93 ALCS, we win the pennant (he had a pulled hammy, I think). I vividly remember him having trouble stretching out for throws at first base, and not being himself at the plate. His presence in the box in the 90's, and his hitting ability, was nothing short of awe-inspiring though.

    After watching the good guys leaving half the city on base last night, today's outburst was refreshing. The pitching has been there most of the season, as soon as the bats consistently catch up, look out

    Best White Sox Brawl?

    The Sox/Tigers brawl in '00 w/o a doubt I still believe that brawl was the catalyst that lead the Sox to come together and win the Central that season

    Favorite not-so known ex White Sox

    Daryl Boston-Remember my first Sox game at old Comiskey shouting at him through the grating from those picnic bench underneath the outfield stands Ron Kittle-Went to my old high school in NW Indiana Lance Johnson- 1 Dog Dan Pasqua Steve Sax Norberto Martin Miguel Olivo Ross Gload My all-time favorite ex Sox though is WILLIE HARRIS. I just liked him while he was with the Sox, and while he was a liability at the dish, he came through with the pinch-hit to get on base in Game 4 in the 8th and eventually scored the only run of the game. For that, I'll be forever grateful.

    I used to be a HUGE North fan when he was on in the afternoon, but the bump to the morning spot has blown his head to the point he thinks he's larger than the city and the teams he's supposed to be covering. Ozzie was right on.

    Official Ozzie/Mariotti Thread

    QUOTE(SleepyWhiteSox @ Jun 22, 2006 -> 10:20 PM) http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_ylt=Amz3...=yhoo&type=lgns calls Ozzie a coward... Ok, so its a sports bar. Why the hell does it have to be referred to as a "gay sports bar"? Just say the thing is a damn sports bar! That being said, Ozzie had to know that everyone outside of Chicago is looking to dethrone his reign, and this was the perfect thing to do it. People dont take stuff in its context in PC Y2K America. Funny part is, when the Sox win it again, or if Ozzie was even willingly to give them 5 minutes of his time, these same writers will/would be eating 10 miles of his s*** to get an interview.

    Mariotti Column

    You'd seriously think AJ not only trucked himself, then he got up, grabbed himself and then slugged himself. I cant stand this idiot on ESPN or in print. I encourage everyone to write this clown and call him on his blatant bias. Assclown Mariotti

    White Sox acquire Jim Thome per ESPNnews

    Ok, someone tell me who plays where between Konerko (if he reups) and Thome? I'm happy, but sad, b/c Rowand was a hell of a CF. Good luck to him.
  14. Sounded like the fans didnt want to hear anything that corporate blowhole had to say, and I can't blame them, people want to hear the players, not some shirt who watches every game from his suite.

    Purdue Celebration Rocks!!

    I'm sure all the bandwagon fans will have fun wearing their newly bought Sox gear around campus, i know here at IU (i'm a grad student here) all the Red Sox and Cubs hats have been traded in. I hate bandwagon jumpers
