The Cubs are having a playoff rally right now. Do you think we'll do one if we win? Their's is on about 8 channels right now :rolleyes: Through a quick flip I saw Daley wearing a Cubs hat and Blago...vich talking about the White Sox to a chorus of boos (this guy obsessed with us?)

This is a MLB sponsored event for all the teams in the postseason. I think they have been doing this since 2004.

My sister was just watching the rally, and I have to say that it was one of the most embarrassingly large displays of public stupidity I've ever seen.

I don't care how you'd manage to get one in, or who you'd get to do it. I do not want to see the Sox doing a "We made it this far" rally. Just the idea of it is stupid.

Yeah, I think it used to be called Rally Monday since that's when it used to be held. Just curious if they'd do one for us for our 'weird' circumstances

Ha, yeah, it's not something I'd lose sleep over if we didn't get

The Sox rally is after they win the World Series.

He's done that before when speaking at rallies in Cubs playoff seasons past. The hat thing, not the exploding brain thing.

I'm with you, but there would be at least 20 people here acting like it was the end of the world that we didn't get one.

Let's skip the rally and save it for a parade in late October.

How did you feel when the Sox had a huge rally downtown before the ALDS in 2005? http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20051003&content_id=1236300&vkey=ps2005news&fext=.jsp

It is not a Cub/Sox thing. So yes we would have a rally if we were not busy trying to make the ALDS tonight, just like we have had in the past.

The article mentioned that MLB started doing these rallies in 2004. Every playoff team since has had one.

Didn't see it. But if it had anything remotely similar to Jim Belushi leading a sing-along of "Go Cubs Go", Rod Blagojevich's least convincing (and most embarrassing) speech ever and calling Micah Hoffpauir and Sean Marshall on stage to wave for 8 seconds, I wouldn't like it, either.

There is no reason to have a rally. This isn't high school homecoming.

No time for ****ing rallies, we need to get to Tampa and at least get a little mental rest up before the playoffs start.

Sox are just worrying about getting in...then tomorrow head down to florida for a short workout on the Rays field.
No time for such foolishness.
This is winning time.
Go Sox.

Any word on if/when the Sox will have a pre-playoff rally?

If we have a rally, it would have to be tomorrow presumably in Daley Plaza. If that is the case, I am quite sure Da Mare will be much more enthusiastic at this one than he was at the one on Tuesday.

Da Mare passed in 1976...junior is lucky his dad isn't around to see
his son in a cub hat which would have gotten him a severe jolt
to the head.

It happened to be on during my lunch break. I believe Rod said that the Picasso statue should be torn down and a Jim Hendry statue should be erected... Honest to god that's almost a direct quote.

Wow... just... wow..

They said on the postgame the team was heading straight to Florida tonight, so looks like we miss out - or at least won't get to wave to the Sox' answer to Sean Marshall.

FWIW, in the brief clip of the rally I saw, Richard M. looked like he was about to throw up.

...the Sox' answer to Sean Marshall.
Horacio Ramirez?

Last night either Dan Roan or Mark Giangreco (i forget which one) joked that Daley threw his Cubs hat under a bus the moment he left the rally.

Was the bus broken down or just running extremely late? Or did it have the wrong route information on the front sign?
