Attention Sox Army: The "Monsters in the Morning" show is running a week-long poll on which Chicago team has the best video intro: Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, and White Sox. Go to the MITM page (http://csnchicago.com/pages/monstersinthemorning) on Comcast Sports Net, and you know what do to.

Sox have 57%. A commanding lead, so far.

Honestly, I think the Bulls win this one. Their video intro with the bulls running through the streets of Chicago with Sirius by the Alan Parson's Project is absolutely epic, especially with the lights dimmed down.

Maybe I am just tired of the Bulls won. Epic yes, but it seems it belongs with the old Bull greats of the 1990's. I kind of laugh now when I see it used with the current bunch, regardless of how much potential they have.

I have to agree. The Sox have a good video, but the Bulls have a classic. Even though they've tweaked it a few times its still fairly true to the original. Plus, I could be wrong but I think the Bulls were one of the teams that started that trend, weren't they? I'm pretty sure the whole dimming the lights pregame thing everyone does started with the Bulls. I'm young, so I could be totally wrong, but...anyway. No disrespect to the Sox whatsoever, but I can't objectively give it to them over the Bulls.

What's the cubs video like?I think it starts out with a fan with earphones on who touches a baseball while in play. At least that's the cub video I see most of the time. :dunno:

The Sox video blows the Bulls one away in my opinion. It captures almost every key moment in the franchise's modern history and the music is great. I never get sick of watching it. I also like how the team splices in new classic moments as they happen like the Blackout game and Mark Buehrle's Perfecto.

I have to admit, I agree...I got chills when I saw it during the home opener.

The Sox one is timeless, to be sure, but since the Hawks are the new "in thing" they'll probably end up winning this poll...not to say they don't deserve it, as it's a great intro.

I'm not really into hockey. Apparently, it must be pretty good to be getting so many votes. Is it online somewhere?

Something has gone horribly wrong! Currently, the totals are:
Bears - 53%
Blackhawks - 23%
White Sox - 20%
Bulls - 1%
What the hell happened here? Perhaps it's Cub fans voting for the Bears. You know, the Cubs and Bears have had a special relationship through the years. This is not to mention there have been times Reinsdorf has had icy relations with the McCaskeys.

I think McCaskey made all employees of the Bears vote 10,000 times each to embarass Uncle Jerry. Yeah, that's it.

There has got to be only a few people voting like this. First the vote was for the Blackhawks and now it's the Bears. It doesn't make any sense. They must know how to "stuff the ballot box" so to speak. Obviously, this is an attempt to keep the Sox from winning and I hate losing. :angry:

If anyone knows how to speed up the voting process, please send me a PM. Geez, I hope I don't get fired for this.
