WSI News Index - Hal Vickery
The Law of Sox Fandom
One "Vickery Law" concerns horses and horses' hindquarters. The other Vickery Law concerns being a Sox Fan. Having watched the first week of the 2006 season, WSI's Hal Vickery is invoking H. Vickery's Law -- the one not about horses' hindquarters!
A Warm Championship Glow!
It's not too hard to understand what separates this opening day from all the others: the warm glow of championship memories Sox Fans were starved to enjoy. WSI's Hal Vickery knows what Yogi Berra might say about this, even if nobody could understand what he meant... not even Yogi.
Big Deal Sox!
It seems hard to believe but five months have passed since our White Sox were crowned champions of Major League Baseball. Now the games will count once again and WSI's Hal Vickery understands just how special this season truly is!
This Old Sox Fan
When a Sox Fans get to be as old as WSI's Hal Vickery, it's no surprise to become sentimental reflecting back on all the years of futility -- especially that now we're World Champions, baby! Take a trip down memory lane, both long-ago and recent, with the most prolific writer in WSI history!
Baseball's Barry Scandal
Local drivel suggests a convicted cheat should be given the homerun title because suspicions about his juicing doesn't constitute proof. This is the mess Major League Baseball has created for itself -- and it is far from over. WSI's Hal Vickery suspects baseball's powers that be wish the problem would just go away. Don't they always?
Frank's Pride, Big Hurt!
The media fallout from the Frank and Kenny soap opera appears to be ending, but amongst all the countless goofball theories and platitudes offered by sportsblab mediots this past week, here's one none of them ever thought to articulate. WSI's Hal Vickery is hardly surprised to be the only one sharing it.
Get Over It!
Just one week after Ozzie Guillen needed to retract a regrettable public comment, it appears the Sox GM who made him apologize might need to make a retraction of his own. WSI's Hal Vickery has a bit of advice: Get over it!
Ozzie's Apology
In criticizing Alex Rodriguez, Ozzie Guillen finally crossed the line the Sox no longer could look beyond. WSI's Hal Vickery recounts events and offers a bit of insight into what it all means for Ozzie, the Sox, and Sox Fans, too.
No news is bad news!
Ozzie Guillen won't be joining the team for their historic visit to the White House to honor the 2005 world champion Sox. WSI's Hal Vickery offers some perspective on the matter that millionaires with 50,000 watts behind their shrill voice simply don't want to understand -- not that drawing attention to themselves isn't their primary motive for whining about any of this.
Wanting it all!
The Sox win a world championship and no longer is merely making the playoffs much of a thrill regardless of whatever Chicago team makes the playoffs! WSI's Hal Vickery is just one more spoiled Sox Fan who wants it all!
Nancy Faust is Back!
The good news is she is back, the bad news is she'll be working only part-time. Baseball's most unique and entertaining organist is playing on the South Side, and WSI's Hal Vickery is glad she isn't going anywhere!
Who's Obsessed?
The Lovable Losers are selling summer while Sox Fans are selling fall! Two questions for Cubs fans this winter: From WSI's Hal Vickery, "Who's obsessed?" And from his laughing fellow Sox Fans, "Who's your daddy?"
Buehrle and the World Baseball Classic
When are the Sox champions and when aren't they champions any longer? Is Mark Buehrle healthy enough to pitch in the World Baseball Classic and should anybody be interested in this new spring tournament cooked up by MLB? WSI's Hal Vickery has all the answers! (Well, sorta.)
Repeat the Feat?
It's looking more and more like the Sox and GM Kenny Williams are serious about repeating as baseball champions! If this once in a lifetime period continues, will Sox Fans like WSI's Hal Vickery be able to handle the pressure? He's up for the challenge!
Sox Gift List
It's the season of giving and WSI's Hal Vickery has an extra-long list of gifts he would like to send to the 2006 White Sox. They've been especially good this year, don't you think, Sox Fans? Happy Holidays from WSI!
Sox Tix in '06
Nothing succeeds like success, and ticket sales for the 2006 White Sox are the living proof! WSI's Hal Vickery is one more Sox Fan lining up to buy tickets for next year but finding the popularity of the ballclub has definitely increased at the box office since winning the world championship. The Sox popular? Say it ain't so!
Holiday Giving
Where does WSI's Hal Vickery moonlight? The answer might surprise you! Okay it really wouldn't surprise you at all, but it is the season for giving and this other organization is worthy of the time and interest of Sox Fans, too.
Konerko back, Garland to arbitration?
The Sox accomplish their #1 off-season goal by re-signing free agent slugger Paul Konerko, but WSI's Hal Vickery is watching how contract negotiations progress between the team and pitcher Jon Garland. Can Kenny and Jon avoid arbitration?
Big Trade, Big Controversy?
Aaron Rowand has been traded and Jim Thome may become the everyday firstbasemen for the 2006 Sox depending on whether Kenny Williams can re-sign free agent Paul Konerko. As WSI's Hal Vickery notes, Sox Fans aren't used to building champion teams and reworking a championship roster is completely foreign to all of us! So is there a controversy or not?
Steroid Apology, Jason Giambi?
Baseball finally did the right thing to get steroids under control, but Sox Fans can't forget the injustice done to Frank Thomas in MVP voting back in 2000! WSI's Hal Vickery applauds the latest efforts by the owners and players to fix what caused the steroids scandal but still waits impatiently for the apology Jason Giambi never offered!
