They should be up even higher with Steve Stone joining Hawk. If they're good that should help too. :rolleyes:

I watched every game last season, and it was worth it. Will others do the same this year?

I'll be able to watch all the games Comcast and WGN show. WCIU games are the problem since Comcast cable doesn't carry it :angry::angry::angry::angry::angry::angry:

2007 White Sox=why watch if you're not a die-hard?
2008 White Sox=never a dull moment!

No surprise over the jump in ratings.

Comcast has different things in different areas. The first person must not be close enough to Chicago to get WCIU.

when I said "die-hard" for 2007, I meant "WSI poster." We're the only ones who were masochistic enough to keep watching after mid-August that year. It was amazing I was able to find people to go to games with me on my season tickets in September.

August and September of last season, I found watching some games torture. And Hawk's love for the Twins and Gomez sure didn't help.

Correct. I'm in the Sterling/Rock Falls area, which is about 100 miles west of Chicago on I-88.

Don't have CIU either, but the radio works fine. I ususally catch up on other things around the house on the CIU night. Gotta have at least one night for errands. No problem w/me

Some of those late season games were tough. Especially the 3 in september in the metrodome. That was a really tough week.

Don't forget the two turds against Cleveland at home following the ugly Dome series. Those five games were so brutal to watch but of course, they won out the remaining three to set up an amazing finish so the rest is history.:cool:

I am shocked that people prefer watching a winning Sox team.

A+ quality material, NY TIMES.

69% is a big number, even for a winning Sox team.

I would also tend to believe being in THAT CLOSE of a playoff race, we picked up more of the casual fan following the races as well as a lot of Twins fans trying to see if we won or lost
