WSI News Index - Hal Vickery
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!
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.
Repeated Mistakes!
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!
Rant Sox!
The Sox fall to third-place in the division and trail for the wild-card, too! It's tough being a Sox Fan and it's tough competing in baseball's toughest division, too. WSI's Hal Vickery knows the key now is to simply win, win, and win some more, but first a little ranting is in order!
Collared Kitties!
A sweep by the Sox has Jim Leyland, Ivan Rodriguez, and the entire Tigers clubhouse unhinged and making excuses. Yes, it's good to be king and it's good to defending champions, too! WSI's Hal Vickery has friendly advice for our rivals from Detroit: Don't look back, someone might be gaining on you!
Panic Mode
Whether their team is winning or losing, it's never the wrong time for Sox Fans to panic! A string of recent series victories has at least a few calmed down, but as WSI's Hal Vickery says, disaster is always lurking around the corner for any crazed Sox Fan!
Just say No to Vazquez's Curve!
If the the 2006 White Sox are to replicate what the 2005 Sox achieved, now is the time for them to start performing like a championship team! WSI's Hal Vickery is one more Sox Fan who has seen enough of the season to know what needs to be fixed now!
End of Civilization?
Perhaps it's the nature of the internet message board medium that posters simply must panic over nearly any recent event, like a one-game Sox losing streak for example. WSI's Hal Vickery is amused at Ozzie's bunting stunts and merely endures assorted other silliness surrounding the '06 Sox.
Sky is Falling?
Big series are looming and too many Sox Fans are freaking out! Detroit is no pretender but they aren't world killers either. WSI's Hal Vickery picks apart the most obvious fretful goofiness and states what ought to be obvious: the season is still far from over! Remember second-place Cleveland last July?
Punch All Star A.J.!
A.J. Pierzynski goes to the all-star game with plenty of help from Sox Fans on the internet! Who did the Sox turn to in the final hours to to put A.J. over the top? WSI's Hal Vickery is pleased to report nobody packs a punch like White Sox Interactive!
Inter-league Farce?
The farce that inter-league baseball has become has mercifully ended for the 2006 season, but that's not all WSI's Hal Vickery has on his mind! The media fallout over Ozzie's mouth and WSI's very own WSI-FEST are two more topics receiving a totally-biased treatment!
Sportsblab Martyrdom for Tracey?
When Sean Tracey threw inside and missed twice in Texas, every sportsblab radio personality in town suddenly had a new martyr to discuss for endless hours! WSI's Hal Vickery knows the real point of this is simply to fill time between gentlemen's club ads, but it doesn't make it any less moronic.
Churros for the Upper Deck!
Patio Parties for WSI members on the main deck in August, but what about more churros for hungry denizens of the upper deck? WSI's Hal Vickery knows a thing or two about Sox Park and has a few suggestions for making the time spent even more memorable -- if a bit more filling, too!
Struggle Sox?
What's wrong with these Sox? A team seemingly stronger than last year's edition that went wire-to-wire, these Sox are struggling to maintain their predecessors' pace. WSI's Hal Vickery can find two major causes: the bullpen and weak efforts at the plate from the bottom of the line up. Say it ain't so!
Bum of the Week?
Contreras misses a start, a minor league call up gets the start, and Brandon McCarthy is still in the bullpen. It's all just a bit too eerily similar to the pre-2005 Sox when practically any bum could pitch from the #5 spot for the Sox! Unlike other Chicago baseball fans, Sox Fans have a long memory and a congenital hate for losing. WSI's Hal Vickery is looking forward to more wins -- South Side wins!
Better than Last Year?
The 2006 Sox surge into first place and pick up where they left off last season beating up the opposition both inside and outside the division. Now WSI's Hal Vickery joins his fellow totally biased Sox Fans wondering whether this team might be even better than last year's championship ballclub!
No Replacing Nancy!
With less playing time than ever, the moments enjoyed listening to Nancy Faust's organ are more precious than ever! WSI's Hal Vickery has heard plenty of ideas for getting things right, but make no mistake Nancy is not replaceable!
Bechtel's Blooper!
Who is the next sports mediot to prove what a dope they are about the Chicago White Sox? Sports Illustrated's Mark Bechtel, come on down! WSI's Hal Vickery documents the latest idiocy from the media!
Missing Nancy!
What's missing at Sox Park this season? As usual, the surging Sox get no respect from the national media. As unusual, the clever and uniquely Sox Park sounds of Nancy Faust's organ are missing many evenings, too. Hal Vickery is hardly surprised by the former, and truly wishes something could be done to help fix the latter.
Save by Iguchi!
How does a secondbasemen earn a major league save? Anyone who didn't see Tadahito Iguchi save the game versus Toronto with his glove missed the glovework gem of the young season. WSI's Hal Vickery is one more amazed Sox Fan!
