Ok, I am giddy but I have to thank that special coin that gave the Sox the home field for tomorrow...no guarantees but I am thanking the good lord the sox do not have to get on a plane and go once more into that despicable dome and play for the AL Central title.

No way to know how tomorrow nite will go but I sure feel better playing in the familiar embrace of the fanatical Sox faithful.
That coin flip could be the difference tomorrow....but the sox bats still have to wake up.

I pointed it out in another thread, but if the shoe was on the other foot, Hawk would have been going off for days. Truthfully, I think the season series winner should get homefield, but I'm very happy they'll be at the Cell tomorrow night.

What was the winning side for us? Heads or Tails?

after the sox win tomorrow, the coin toss will be the 2nd biggest play of the season, after Alexi's slam tonight

Hahn's son was using his head on that one.

Ok, I'm SORRY, but that one was left wide open! :tongue:

I believe the call was heads we win, tails you lose.

Heads, we won.

Speaking of coin, who gets the money from this game tomorrow.....MLB, the White Sox, or is it a split pot?

A 99%-1% split? Sox get the 1%? :rolleyes:

No talk about "coins" would be complete without this:

Great question. I would imagine the Sox and Twins would split it, since it's newfound revenue, and the site was determined by a mere flip of a coin.

Manders 01 might have some insight on this. She went to the 1 game playoff at Coors Field last year.

I heard Brian Anderson used his psychokenesis powers to make sure it landed heads.
