The last bit of life now leaves the championship Sox baseball team. Oh, for all the what-ifs that never quite happened in 2006! WSI's Guy Bacci scratches his head like most other Sox Fans and wonders why it had to come to this? And like many other Sox Fans, he wonders what comes next!
Yeah, it hurts.
It didn't take long for the Chicago media to forget how many losing ballclubs the city supported the past 100 years and begin treating the first champion club in four generations like a dirty rag. WSI's Hal Vickery can only join his fellow Sox Fans in disgust at the same ignorant media that claimed the Sox "choked" last September now reaches for even more outrageous statements proving once and for all their ignorance of the team, the city, and the sport!
Our Sox look listless once again as the opportunities to salvage the season dwindle, leaving fans with an empty feeling. Javier Vazquez and the Palehose go down without a fight tonight against Seattle 9-0.
Sept. 16th...Sinking with the Sox on the Bay
The Big Hurt makes this one REALLY hurt as the Sox blow yet another lead and lose yet another "must win" game. Now we all get to sit back and hope the Tigers and Twins lose a few of them, too.
Gut wrenching... but fun!
Chicago's baseball fans who love winning (and won't tolerate losing) are having an especially difficult time this September... but none of us would trade it for the alternative! WSI's Hal Vickery notes the frustration borne of our love of winning baseball should never be confused with whatever idiotic thought process makes fools believe losing can be lovable.
The pennant stretch drive is filled with odd noises, many of them dropping straight out of the mouth of the Sox manager. Right now WSI's Guy Bacci is anxious like most other Sox Fans, but perhaps the anxiety is just a bit higher thanks to Ozzie?
Greg Pryor Speaks!
He played on the South Side in the pivotal years between 1979 and 1982, a period that started with the ballclub near financial collapse and ready to leave town, but gained new ownership, and turned the corner towards respectability. Greg Pryor is one of only a handful of Sox ballplayers who can speak authoritatively about all the changes that ultimately led to championship paydirt 25 years later. Now Sox Fans can catch up with Greg Pryor... another EXCLUSIVE interview from White Sox Interactive and Mark Liptak!
What is the definition of stupidity? There has been plenty of insanity surrounding the Sox franchise the last century or so, but WSI's Hal Vickery has about reached the end of his rope with one sorry line up experiment that finally needs to be declared a failure and never Never NEVER repeated again!
Holy Cow! Harry Documentary
When Harry Caray was younger and sharper, he made a reputation for himself across Chicago as the ultimate baseball play-by-play man inside the White Sox broadcast booth at Old Comiskey Park. Now PBS television will document his entire career. WSI's Mark Liptak has watched an advance screening and reflects on what this broadcast legend has meant to Chicago's South Side.
