Hell of a Game. Walk-off homers are always fun.

I thought Caballo had it won, but Jose followed it up with the real thing.

Also, fun being on the L on the way home as a homeless guy insisted that he had the right to smoke on the train while we were being hypocrits because we "ride the subway".

I just got back from the game too. Shingo and Josey came through big tonight! It was a fun win, but on top of that, we avoided a potentially devastating loss. My 1960's navy-with-white-block-lettered-S-O-X cap and I are still undefeated attending games in 2004. Send me your tickets.
I would also like to make an addition to my definition of SOX PRIDE:

Sox Pride is, after a walk-off hit, jumping up and down and high fiving complete strangers just because they look as happy as you do.

I just returned from the game as well. Enough of "Throw it back" already. After Crisp knocked that one into the bullpen, security gave it to a kid. A whole bunch of sox "fans" were yelling at the kid. Why would you yell at a kid who just got the mother of all baseball game souvenirs?

I gotta agree with this. I just got back and the 10th was awsome. EVERYONE was jumping up and down and huging each other. It was a BIG win.

On a side note, i was kinda disappointed that we gave up all those runs. That game should not have been so close. Yet since i was there ill take the walk off! Now lets win the next 2 vs cleveland and then sweep the cubs!

It definitely was fun being in the fan deck high fiving everyone up there that was around me. What a great way to pull out a win. It was quite the emotional high. :supernana:

Or something to that effect. Maybe if these morons realized they were mimicking Flubs fans and their stupid, ignorant tradition that disrespects the game itself, they might stop. Maybe this could catch on everywhere where it has become "trendy" except, of course, loser park!
How about:

Them: Throw back fake baseballs
Us: Give it to the kid next to you
Sox Pride!

Join the campaign started in a thread yesterday "Throw it back jackass"; next time you go to the park, bring a sign like above and heckle everyone who starts this Flub-practice!

Great crowd and great comeback win.

On another note, some troll was standing on the 35th bridge over the Dan Ryan between Wentworth and the Red Line holding a cubs sign during the game. I was shocked, because everybody knows that cub fans don't care about the Sox.

i have a theory about homeless people and the measure of a city. in short, you can judge a city by it's number of homeless. if someone loves a city enought to sleep on it's ground and wonder aimlessly around all day must be quite a city.

it still takes dedication! those homeless remind me of addicts... the tenacity they have is amazing. what some would call a weekness, pawning your valuables for a fix, i would call impressive. it takes a lot of determination to hold fast in your decision to continue to use soemething that has taken so much from you all ready.


what color is joking?

Even Ed Farmer is getting into the campaign. On the broadcast last night, when some fans were yelling to throw back the ball, he said don't do it. Said that it is stupid to throw it back. Also said that if you don't want the ball, give it to a kid. Way to go, Farmio.

Are you sure it wasn't a vendor selling "Choke" t-shirts?

I was at Monday night's game as well as the Tuesday "walk-off" game. Just dodged having driven from Minnesota to see two losses. Blowing the 8 run lead had my guts churning. Jose's double tied it back up, his homer won it, and everyone in my section was celebrating like mad.

An observation that refers to absolutely no one who cares enough to be posting on this board: Frank was at bat with two aboard, and all around people were blocking my view by getting up to go to the bathroom, or the churros stand, or whatever. I said to my brother "where in the hell are they going? Don't they see this is Frank Thomas at bat with runners on? If you don't want to watch that, why are you at the game?"

Frank proceeded to jack it 2/3 of the way up the left field seats. I hope they enjoyed whatever they left their seats for.

Fan etiquette has become an oxymoron.

Thanks for the graphic. I've always kind of wondered just what an ass-clown is. This illustrates it perfectly.

That was pretty cool. My brother caught the ball. He's the proud parent of Frank's 18th of the year.

He was holding a picket-type sign which contained nothing but a cubs logo, and was wearing official cubbie gear. He did not appear to be selling anything.
