...the Sox loss will be buried in all the papers tomorrow, seeing as God Himself Shown Down on the Northside today (aka the St. Louis Cardinal Bullpen-Suckin' Blues), and a certain 3rd place team will be getting all the ink instead.

I really, really, really could hurl after all I've seen today.

Cheeses, we need to treat you like a recovering alcoholic. For God sakes man, stay away from tomorrow's newspapers!

I don't care what's written in the papers tomorrow. I'm just dreading what will happen with this team now that the offense has decided to take another vacation.

****ing MLB! Let Frank use his aluminum bat.

But no! We can't have that. We can't allow the evil Frank Thomas to overshadow the great Sammy Sosa, the savior of baseball.

I actually don't read the actual papers. But I do read the online versions.

My take on tomorrow's action is:

Cubune - 9 stories on the Cubs victory, 1 on the Sox loss. Mike Downey tracks down Eunice and Beatrice Snideley, two 90-something Flub fans, who finally feel that "their year" is here.

Cub-Times - the Moron officially switches sides and becomes a full-blown Flubs fan, saying something about how the baseball gods are suddenly shining on the likes of Moises Alou. There are 6 stories on the Flubs game, and 2 about "pennant fever" sweeping Chicago (referring, of course, to the Flubs only). Sox loss gets 1 story.

Newspaper columnists and anaylists don't matter.

According to ESPN's Kirkijan(sp) A's starter Rich Harden is Jesus Christ reborn and E-LO is just a pretender.

The Sox can control the media spin by winning. Which they didn't do the past two nights.

I think what's in the papers is a valid point, though, because the team sees that, and they see the Cubs getting treated like gods. Whether they let it affect them or not, I can't believe it's not discouraging.

Couple that with only 20,000 fans out at the Cell tonight, and it sure as hell must seem like no one gives a crap.

Well in fairness the question has to be asked...

When was the last time the Sox did what the Cubs or Twins did today?

Maybe if they did it a little more often then hardly ever, and won something in 43 years, fans would show up and wouldn't be as fatalistic.

Maybe if the Sox weren't blowing ten games this season where they took a lead into the 7th inning or later and lost, they wouldn't have only 20,000 fans in the stands.

Me thinks a number of Sox fans know what's coming.

Really, Lip. The last time that I recall the Sox coming back from a 6-0 deficit was last year - against the Scrubs!!! That game still makes me smile!

:gulp:

The Twins didn't do anything today. The game was an early Christmas gift from the Angels.
