I was just on my online account just checking up on things, and noticed that they posted the games for my season tickets for the upcoming season. I also noticed many satuday games that start at 3:10 pm. I know that this is just a prliminary schedule and such, but was wondering what channel these games might be on, and what you guys think about this. For as long as I could remember, Saturday games started at either 6:05, 1:05, or every once in a while 2:55. I never saw a 3:10 game time before, but still can't wait for the season to start. Your thoughts...

I hope so. 2:55 is the dumbest ****ing start time in the history of existence, as its 5 minutes BEFORE the hour. So for instance, you can say 7 for the start of a 7:05 or 7:11 game. But you can't say 3 for a 2:55 game, you have to say ****ing 2:55

Hopefully that will lessen the time of their pointless pregame show as well.

It also says their games are at 1:00 [noon Central? I'm assuming they mean Eastern time], not 3:10.

It's from a California newspaper so they mean 1pm pacific time (3 central time).

That makes sense, then, thanks.

Agreed!! Anyone who refers to White Sox fans as "White Sox Nation",:puking:as she did in 2005,should be kept far away from any open mike,IMHO.

I used to hate 7:30 CT starts at the cell, thats 8:30 in Ohio, do you know how long that extra 19 minuets actually is when your pumped to see the Sox play since you don't see them a lot since they are out of market...br00tal
