If six separate events all line up for Sox Fans in a single week, is it a sign from heaven or a sign from hell? WSI's George Bova recounts this extraordinary week, a message too large to be overlooked.
Marketing the Sox
A new Sox marketing V.P. has been hired and attending a Sox game may soon take on a whole new feel. WSI's Patrick Dahl offers a few light-hearted possibilities the ex-Bulls V.P. might be considering!
Winning Cures All!
The local media's focus on the Lovable Losers has Sox Fans ready to hurl their lunch. Only one team in Chicago is in first-place and the other is flirting with last-place! WSI's Guy Bacci knows what ails our team's fortunes in the media and notes the conclusion we all wish for!
'04 Sox at the Quarter-Mark!
The 2004 Sox offer Sox Fans a few surprises and most of them have been of the pleasant variety! WSI's Hal Vickery catalogues the highlights so far and the hopeful expectations we all share for this team one-quarter through the season.
Mike Veeck Speaks!
The son of Sox owner Bill Veeck, Mike Veeck carries on his father's legacy as baseball's greatest showman! Read about the genesis of Disco Demolition and what happened to scuttle the 20th anniversary celebration in this EXCLUSIVE interview from WSI's Mark Liptak!
Could it Happen Anywhere?
The Chicago Tribune has officially circled the wagons regarding their pathetic coverage over the murder of a fan at Clark & Addison after spending the afternoon in attendance at their baseball division's game at beaaaa-utiful Wrigley Field. Could it really have happened anywhere as the Cubune writers now plaintively whine? WSI's Hal Vickery can only laugh, with plenty of chuckles from Sox Fan Harlin Neal, too.
Perceptions & Sox Attendance
How do the Sox stack up versus their competition in profitability, and how do the Sox compare in season attendance? There are plenty of negative perceptions surrounding the role Sox Fans play to impoverish their team. WSI's Jim Laffer quotes the most reliable sources available and draws a very different conclusion!
Cataloging the Bias
There is a mountain of evidence regarding bias in the media, well documented on the message boards at WSI. Now Jim Laffer offers this summary of all the other dirty secrets the media ignores while propagating the myths surrounding the Lovable Losers and their cute and cuddly neighborhood ballpark.
Media Bias Revealed!
After denying organizational bias for years, the Chicago Tribune's credibility takes a major hit as Cubune editors bury a major murder story at Chicago's summer-long Mardi Gras hosted by their own subsidiary. WSI's Hal Vickery recounts details too well known by Sox Fans, now revealed for others to see, too.
Blabbing About Sox Attendance
When Cubs fans talk about baseball, it's inevitable the topic turns to attendance. WSI's Hal Vickery heard yet more silliness on the subject listening to sports blab radio. Will they ever learn, Sox Fans?
Ninth Inning Heroics!
It has been a long time since the Sox scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to win a ballgame, but WSI's Guy Bacci has vivid memories of that occasion! Now the 2004 Sox have done it, too! Could this season be shaping up as something to remember, too?
