"Chicago White Sox Baseball: The Kids Can Play"
"Chicago White Sox Baseball: Good Guys Wear Black"
"Chicago White Sox Baseball: It's Time" (sigh)

You've heard the 'official' slogan each year, what should the slogan for this year be?

How about:
"Chicago White Sox Baseball - because *somebody* has to win the AL Central!"

I said this there, and I will continue to say it here, a slogan is a terrible idea.

If things don't work out, it just looks stupid. How did "Its Time" and "Bring Your A Game" look by midseason in each of those years? Dumb.

If the Sox are losing, the slogan only works against us. If the Sox are winning, we get far more pleasure from that than we ever would from a slogan. We can always make up a slogan mid-season anyway. SOX PRIDE didn't come out until at least late Spring.

2005 - Run with the Sox!

Scene: The Sox players are in a bullpen like the Bulls in Paplona - the gates spring open and the Sox players run out knocking down people with jerseys that say Red Sox, Yankees, Indians, Twins and Cubs. Frank comes out last swinging a menancing bat - Shingo and the other relievers shrug and stay in the Bullpen.

I agree with Homefish (Mercy!). Two words immediately evoke the 1983 team, and we all know what they are. They were not a slogan created by the marketing dept. Neither was "Go-Go", and yet these nicknames are more memorable and evocative than any slogan. Sox Pride is a nice, all-encompassing slogan for all Sox fans to wrap themselves with regardless of how the team does. In the meantime, let the season unfold and let's hope Sox: Under the Radar becomes Sox: Out of Nowhere -- the Championship Season (I'm not recommending that).

OK, to those who are arguing that a marketing slogan is a bad idea, the point of this thread as I intended it (as you can see by my post) is to get you to make cynical slogans to make me laugh. Some of these are pretty good! Thanks!
(I really like the re-fire manuel one)

How about "White Sox Baseball: the Chicago team that *didn't* finish third in their division."
