Yes, they are watching. They probably get their news and rumors from here too.

HAHAHA!! Oh wow, that's some good stuff. Kudos to everyone who got a non-direct mention in the article. Looks like maybe some of the press do follow the goings on here.

Here's to us. :gulp:

Especially love the:

"Maybe during batting practice Sammy Sosa took a leak there..." quote. Completely hysterical!!

Too bad he didn't post screen names. Can't wait to hear the anti-Sox crap at the water cooler today..

LOL! I think our theories of who did it are at least as plausible as the Cubune's paid apologists!

Great job by everyone, and a nice mention in print for the WSI community, too!!!

"With the exception of that stupid Sox fan site, everyone believes our cover story. Hurry up and fix that broken sewer pipe before the truth gets out!"

That poll wasn't conducted here though it was at chicagosports.com.

The only bad thing is that our beloved site was just exposed to thousands of idiot scrub fans who are likely to come over here and troll.

...patting self on back...yep that quote was from none other than Cuck The Fubs.

I'm hurt that the Sun-Times didn't print my WSI user name.

Anyone else hear someone on the SCORE this morning claiming to be Cuck The Fubs? It was not me. Wonder what this imitator said?

That is pretty cool. It shows how great this site is and that people are actually noticing! Maybe some Sox fans who read the article and didn't know abotu this site will go sign up.

Yesterday someone posted that Rapport would do an article and quote users from WSI... who on this board is so in the know? I'm impressed....

That would be PaleHoseGeorge who coincidently had two quotes in the article. Hmmm...... :D:

Adroit WSI correspondent Mark Liptak (Lipman1) has the media connections. I just happened to open my big-mouth at an opportune time when Ron Rapoport went searching for quotes amongst the posts here.

Don't forget the river of troll blood that flows outside the protected fortress of WSI.

Y'know, after this article in the Sun-Times I am COMPLETELY convinced that media lurkers have been lifting info from this site for a long time now. There have been numerous times where after we discuss something here, a couple days later there is a similar discussion on the radio or article in the paper even going back to the Rivals.com days.

Yeah, ideas get ripped off from here all the time...too bad Jerry Reinsdorf, Kenny Williams & Jerry Manuel aren't taking any. :D:
Nice to see WSI getting the plug from Ron Rapoport. He knew if he didn't mention this site in his article he would have had to feel the wrath of the White Sox Army! :D:

Not only prtected, we have a Radio Staion to blast idiots like moron and the ass. AND THEY CAN'T STOP US! HA!

Good job wsi! :gulp:

Needless to say, McGuire will get his ass ripped apart on our next show.

nice job guy's, I knew there was some classic stuff posted last night, I never thought it would make the sun-times.... especially the part about shamy's "steroid soaked urine"

kudos wsi... you know whats funny after reading that article... McGuire states that no decient scrub fan would destroy the ivy... its those same "decient" fans who destroy the property owners lawns around wrigley by urinating on them .... pretty ironic isnt it??? theyre bold enough to take a leak all over the place but they arent bold enough to kill the ivy?????

G'day again,
Found my way back from PC and server issues.

Chicago Sun Times? :?:
Didn't even know it existed..

Is it a community newspaper?
I currently can only get links to the Tribune.

Is Australia another state of the Land of the free?

They went under and took most of the sites affiliated with them along for the swim with the fishes,WSI survived and has grown by leaps and bounds as an independent site affilated with no network.
