Im fully intent on taking a few of them with me to the game.
Anyone else going, I suggest you make some and take them
too. There was a time, in the old Comiskey, that Sox Fans
made and displayed some of the Wittiest and Most Clever
Banners/Signs Ive ever seen in Baseball. This weekend, all
eyes will be on this series again, and this could be a nice chance
to make a statement to the Media and fans of that other team.

I'll be taking the SIGN COLON, SIGN LOAIZA sign.
Might take the SOX....Medias Least Covered/Favored Team.

any other signs I should be looking for?

You mean there are TWO baseball teams in Chicago? How come the Media only talks about one?

"Wake up Northside - THIS is Chicago baseball!"

"Hey Sammy, please put the cork back in the Cub fans Whine!"

I recommend one sign "Cork + Steroids = Sosa"

I can't take credit for this one but someone posted on WSI earlier in the week:

C ork

S ammy

I'm thinking about bringing one that says:

Frank Thomas
392 CORK-FREE HOME RUNS

Cork doesnt really help the hitter. You need steroids too.

How about a Photoshopped poster of the "new" Hulk (from the movie) with Sham-ME's :nandrolone face on it, with this written in big letters below:

ROID RAGE

CORK YOU, SAMMY!

We Will, We Will, Cork You!

If You Didn't Cork It Sammy, WHO DID?

Chances of picking the corked bat out of your supply: 76 to 1
Chances of bat breaking to reveal cork: 1,000 to 1
Chances of serving entire suspension: 1,000,000

Chance of seeing a White Sox sweep: priceless

I hate carrying signs around, especially when it's gonna be as packed as it is.

"Take a WHIFF of COLON"

"Loaiza 3:16"

"Where's Josh Paul?"

"Release Rick White"

"Kidnap Darrin"

This is my personal favorite, but all are great. :)

It is times like this, *sniff* :whiner: that make me wish I still lived in Chicago so I could be part of the Delta Force at the Cell this weekend.

*sniff, sniff* Make me proud, guys. :whiner:

He's pitching Sunday's game, unless you won't be there. If you won't, maybe I'll make it for Sunday.

The bill is in the mail, BTW. j'k

OK, I'm dense or something -- what exactly is the point of "Loaiza 3:16"? I know it's a takeoff on the folks who hold up "John 3:16" signs at games, but is the numerical part supposed to be about his ERA? And if so, shouldn't it read "Loaiza 1.99"?

yeah, a takeoff on the john 3:16 thing. pretty clever.
Though I may change it to say Loiaza 7:15 (all star date)

Back in 1997, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin started the 3:16 trend saying, "Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your a55."

From then on, if you want to praise someone, you can use their last name and add 3:16 behind it to praise them.

That's how I came up with it...


God, I'm lonely...

John 3:16 says something about since God loved the world he sent his son Jesus. It has absolutely nothing to do with sports and I dont understand how and why that whole thing started.

Anybody here sitting in the right field bleachers for the game? I say you bring a bunch of wine corks and lob them into right field when he makes his annoying run into right field.

I'd love to see a close up of those littering the outfield.

There're better ways to show your dislike of Sammy besides throwing junk onto the field.

I'm begging everyone to refrain from taking the sign "Smell Our Colon." Bartolos last name is spelled just like part of your intestines. Imagine the negative press if someone misread the sign. "Smell Our Large Intestine." Please don't..........

I saw a hilarious sign on the upper deck back in 2000-- it was a huge picture of Sammy swinging a rum bottle & it said "Sammy's Domestic Hit". They were forced to take it down....

heres a few ideas

Some-
One's a
Steroid
Adict

or for anyone sitting in right field or the bullpen bar, make a HUGE sign that says "CHEATER" with an arrow pointing down and hold it up when sammy is in the field.

If I had the ca$h....

I'd hire one of those airplanes that carries the banners behind them ripping Shammy to threads. The Sox can't do a thing about that...Unless there's some post 9\11 law prohibiting fly overs @ major sporting events

jaundicebaby
06-27-2003, 09:23 AM
I really want to make a sign saying something like.

"Hey, Corky. Life Goes On."

I know it is in real poor taste...but so is Sosa.

Sunday will be the first time I will be at the Cell this year. I used to attend about 5-10 games a year, until I moved to Indy. Is there anything extra special that I need to check out that wasn't there last year? Keep the signs coming, I think they're great. :gulp:

the new fan deck in center field is an awesome view. i checked it out before a game when it was almost empty and it was great.

Brutal game, nice win for the ChiSox.

Nevermind the cork jokes, only one sign could accurately sum it up

Struck

Swinging

This is just a shout-out to Hangar18, who I said Hey! to at Sunday's game. He made the previously-discussed

Steroids + Cork = Sosa

banner and had it proudly on display from the center field deck.

Great job, Hangar18!!!
