I know this is silly, and I know I shouldn't care at all. But, I just got some Red Sox tickets in the mail (for the White Sox games there), and it came with a pocket schedule. On it' the games against the White Sox are listed as "CWS". The games against the Cubs? "CHI". That makes perfect sense, it's not like the White Sox are the Chicago team they've played every year for 100 years. Everybody knows that the Cubs are the only team with rights to the name Chicago. :angry:

between the patriots and all th bosox stuff shoved down our throats over the last two years (esp. on espn), i'm pretty much sick of anything associated with boston.

I prefer when they use CWS than ChW for us, but the flubs should be ChC thts crap, escipecially because the cubs arent in the red sox league

White Sox have always been CWS on the LF board

but Cubs are CHC

you have a valid gripe

Wow, what a dilemma, there are two teams playing each other that I both want to lose. Of course, if I have to choose a winner I'll have to go with the Bosox or should I say the BRS.

Maybe it says "Chicago" because it's a road game, :dunno:

I noticed on my XM dial last night that the White Sox were listed CWS and the Cubs CHI

So I called the Red Sox PR office

OFFICIALLY CHI belongs to the Cubs as they are the older team in Chicago however some teams use CHC

Yankees were always NYY Giants were NYG Mets NYM

Dodgers are LA Anaheim is LAA (for now)

I found one where we won the game. Took it with my own camera. Shingo came in for the save in the rain shortly after this was taken. It's a little fuzzy, but the score is 8-5.

The Sporting News schedule lists us as CHW, while the crybabies are CHC. Likewise, the yankee$ are NYY, and the Mets are NYM.

This makes the most sense to me.
