Anyone remember those "Line Shot" commericials back in the late 1990's? They were on during the Albert Belle, Robin Ventura, and Frank Thomas era. I loved how they made them into little action mini-series'. I remember Ventura being kidnapped and the guy telling him, "If Matt Karchner's fastball drops below 95 MPH, Comiskey Park will explode!", or something like that. Haha, I miss the GREAT acting by Ventura. :D:

That was just before "These Kids Can Play," which I think lasted through 2001. "It's Time" was 2002, and from 2003 all I remember was a radio commercial with JM's voice where he says something like "I don't care who you are, you better bring yo' A-game." Turns out the Twins didn't quite need their A-game to beat the 2003 Sox.

Yeah, I have the schedule from 1998 that had the line shot ad. It is designed like a movie poster. It says; "For the bad guys, its no runs, no hits, no mercy." :rolleyes:

Ha, I loved the "Line Shot" campaign, probably my favorite Sox advertising campaign ever. I used to have a brochure from that year that was made to look like a movie poster, I wish I could find it again.

Just a bit of a correction.:D: "These Kids Can Play" ended half-way through the 2000 season. And then in 2001 "It's Time" was used. After using "It's Time" failed horrifically, I think the Sox brass has been hesitant to use one liners like that.

True, true. Although the slogan "Sox Pride" is different than, "The Kids Can Play" and "It's Time". Right???

"The Kids Can Play" started in the 1999 season. That is because when the Glorious Sweep took place that season, I posted a gloating message on another message board titled "The Kids Can Sweep." "It's Time" came about in 2001 after the 2000 division title; it was quickly scrapped after we got off to a crappy start. Then, "Come Ready to Play" was born for the 2002 season.

Early in 2004 under Gallas it was "So what's changed?.....everything."
