    Sox vs Cubs

    QUOTE (oldsox @ Jul 9, 2015 -> 03:45 PM) Winning the series vs Toronto plus Shark's great game, certainly increases the interest in this three game series. No DH, so I wonder what the Cubs' plan for Schwarber is? Can't wait. I think Schwarber is back in the minors. I am going tomorrow; haven't been to Wrigley in years; not that pumped about it.

    Golfing Thread

    QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ Jun 18, 2015 -> 09:06 PM) I can't tell if this US Open course is awful or awesome Your right on both counts: Awesome course; awful greens. I wish the USGA would go back to playing the US Open on lush golf courses, instead of trying to stage the British Open here. That was two brown ones in a row after Pinehurst last year.

    Multiple Victims in Charleston SC Church Shooting

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jun 19, 2015 -> 02:57 PM) Same if you asked people who knew the history. Its use in the first half of this century was very little, it suddenly became an important symbol in the 1940s and 1950s again...because of exactly that reason. "The flag was first raised over the [s.C.] Capitol in 1962, largely to express defiance of the civil rights movement." http://www.nytimes.com/1997/01/24/us/confe...h-carolina.html

    QUOTE (MEANS @ Jun 16, 2015 -> 11:51 AM) I get to work on some pretty cool stuff where I work(Reebok) and for the 2nd time in two years my t-shirt design was selected as the Championship Locker Room tee that the guys wear after hoisting the cup. Even better that I'm a Blackhawks fan too. Congrats Blackhawks!!!! That's fantastic!

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Jun 15, 2015 -> 12:08 PM) Pierre LeBrun ‏@Real_ESPNLeBrun 41m41 minutes ago Kucherov on the ice for Lightning morning skate If he's good to play, then he really should have come back out for G5. I think its a feint, and he sits. It sure looked like he broke his collar bone.

    I am no expert, but its pretty clear that the Hawks have not played their best hockey. I really feel better things are to come, and that has been their trend late in series. I don't know enough about TB to say whether they can kick it up a notch to withstand what I hope is coming. I still think Hawks in six.

    QUOTE (soxfan49 @ Jun 9, 2015 -> 10:50 AM) Is Toews? Sharp? Bickell? Hossa, Kane, Keith, Toews, Sharp & Bickell have 0 goals combined. You have to think one of those guys gets hot eventually. I think Hossa's played well. I credit TB for the job they're doing against Kane & Toews. Bickell's been his usual self (this year), and as for Keith, you can't count on your D-men for scoring, consider it a bonus. Patrick Sharp is the one who confounds me.

    QUOTE (Rowand44 @ May 31, 2015 -> 10:57 PM) Ya this wedding was at a country club so there were tv's everywhere. The bride told the bartenders they weren't allowed to turn them on but we overpowered that cause we're good friends. Man, I feel sorry for your buddy who got married. I am old enough to remember when the Hawks played Tampa in their first ever game. Was I pissed when they won the cup first. From the footage I watched this weekend, the Bolts seriously look like the proverbial "team that is happy to be there." The contrast with the all business, experienced Hawks was stark. I am not as certain as I was last year that the Western Conference winner was going to be the de facto Stanley Cup champion, but I feel more confident going into this series than any one so far this year. Hawks in 6.

    White Sox vs Blue Jays 5/27 game thread

    QUOTE (Harry Chappas @ May 27, 2015 -> 12:43 PM) Imagine how bad it would be if Vince Coleman was not on the payroll. Seriously what and the hell is he getting paid for? I remember watching opening day and Hawk pining about how great the base running was going to be this year. That was back when Hawk thought the team was going to be good Coleman is in charge of making sure players don't get attacked by the tarp rollers. If you think about it, he's done a stellar job so far.

    This team's baserunning is beyond awful. That and the defense makes them very tough to watch.

    Rowand will be TV guy this weekend

    QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ May 15, 2015 -> 09:57 AM) When there is a quiet stretch, is he gonna suddenly run into the outfield wall? Assuming there is a quiet stretch when Hawk gets pissed, of course. His announcing will be so grindery.

    They can medicate ADHD. However, the medication, I imagine, tends to not work quite so well if you mix it with mass quantities of THC.

    QUOTE (knightni @ May 1, 2015 -> 07:22 AM) Would it be worth a trade up to get Gregory to the Bears? I say no. Way too risky. Just the pick alone might be.

    Sox/O's postponed again for 4/28.

    The O's should have to forfeit; like the White Sox did during the Chicago Disco Riot.

    Sox/O's postponed again for 4/28.

    QUOTE (LDF @ Apr 28, 2015 -> 09:45 AM) it has to be played, the powers to be will not let the actions of the rioters take any further control of this situation. the best way, start off with something purely as innocuous as a baseball game. America's #1 past time sport. Respectfully, I completely disagree. There is absolutely no reason for it to be played, and doing so sends no "message" whatsoever. This is not FDR preserving the American way of life on the homefront during WWII. This itself is a war zone.
