D*#k in a Sock

WARNING: Strong Language

Pretty sure I wouldn’t want to put my junk in any of those dirty White Sox.

Victoria Secret’s Models Chicago Baseball Fans?

Even though one of us is Cubs fan, and the other a Sox fan, I think we can both agree we would drop our loyalties in a heart beat if it meant being with either one of these ladies.  I don’t even care that their from South Africa and don’t know anything about baseball.  I can teach them.  I’m a good teacher.  So let it be known Candice and Behati, even though you might think I’m out of your league, don’t be too shy to ask about my baseball knowledge.

White Sox Fan is All Over the Place

This guy is all over the place.  He goes from talking about the Cubs, to Ozzie Guillen’s home run, to mentioning people his dad coached, to commenting on amnesty issues. I guess you can take the South Sider out of the city, but never take the South Sider out of the man.

A quote from Billy Madison sums this video up completely, “[Sir], what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

A Young White Sox Fan

Now this what I like to see.  A young White Sox fan living and dying with every pitch, at bat, and inning.  When are parents going to learn to teach their kids about the White Sox and not the Cubs?  Let’s stop the Cubs brainwashing insanity, and teach our kids about the goodness on the southside.

Button Up

The baseball gods have been smiling down on the White Sox the last few days.  They have even turned the Braves uniforms into White Sox supporters.  I watch way too much baseball, and I have never seen this occur.  I think it would have been great if he realized what happened and did a mad dash to 1st base, finishing off the play with a belly flop to tag the base. Why didn’t Conrad just unbutton his shirt and take the ball out, why did he have to roll it up his chest and then dig to get it??  All this does is make me laugh at his misfortune even more.

The White Sox have now won 7 games in a row, all against the National League.  This makes me wonder if the White Sox should file a petition to officially change leagues. More importantly, they have cut the Twins 1st place lead to only 4.5 games, picking up 6 games in a week and a half.  Are there really going to be important baseball games in the late summer months?  Finally, is this good karma for a Chicago team to have a ball/puck get lost in a jersey.  Look at the good fortune that happened to the Blackhawks after this happened.

Wake Up White Sox Nation

While the entire city was enjoying the month long alchohol fest known as Stanley Cup Playoffs, the thought of Chicago baseball was just an afterthought.  Personally, the only reason I turned on last week’s Sunday night game was to listen to Joe Morgan rant about how much he thought his s*** didn’t stink and how much he hated the Cubs.  Remember, he has a deep seeded hate for Ryne Sandberg.

This past week, the White Sox have continued to win games and are starting to act like a contender.  I know I am going to hate myself for using the word “contender” in the same sentence as a Chicago team this summer. I don’t want to tease myself and think they have a chance just yet.  They did play the Cubs, Pirates and Nationals.  I think most pony league teams on a good day could beat any of them.

A few weeks ago, the only talk coming out of White Sox camp was battle royales between Kenny and Ozzie, trade possibilities, and excuses for continuing to use Mark Kotsay.  Since then, the hitting is starting to improve, and most importantly the pitching has been almost unbeatable.  In fact, White Sox starters are 9-1 with a 1.97 ERA in their past 12 games.  Even their fifth starter, Freddy Garcia, has won 5 games in a row.  Even Freddy’s sweat valves in his forehead are going down.  Perhaps they put a suction type item in his cap.  If the excess liquid problem in Jake Peavy’s arm (whatever that means) continues to not bother him, this starting rotation is finally taking their places as one of the best in baseball.

The most shocking number on this current streak is they have no homers in 8 games.  This is the same White Sox hitting coach and roster who for the last decade have lived and died by the long ball.  This concept known as “Ozzie Ball” is starting to work well.  The manufacturing and run production is starting to come along.  If super-prospect Dayan Viciedo can bring more power and RBI production to the middle of the order, we may have something on the south side.

Do I think this team can contend(dammit I said it again) in the AL Central, no not really.  However, it is nice to have some pulse in the Chicago baseball world.  Please White Sox, keep winning, I need something to hold me over until Bears training camp

ESPN Can Kiss My Butt

Way to show your true colors ESPN.  You put the Cubs Sox on Sunday Night Baseball (which actually may have been a bad decision based on the current state of both teams) but then you completely fail to show the National Anthem sung by Jim Cornelison and then the Blackhawks singing during the 7th inning stretch.  News flash, Chicago is the third biggest city in the country.  New York and Boston don’t rule the country and not everyone lives there.  The country actually extends west of Philadelphia.  Had this been the Bruins at the Fenway or the Rangers at Yankee Stadium, ESPN would have most definitely shown both.  Hell, they probably would have had Chris Berman running around the field in a Red Sox or Yankees thong.  I am officially boycotting ESPN (all be it for 30 minutes).
