View Full Version : Laffer's column this week

05-04-2005, 04:01 PM
In his column "Props for Kenny," Jim Laffer says that SI rated the Sox dead last out of 30 teams for franchises to root for.

I'm a high school teacher and my classroom is right next to our media center. I looked through the table of contents for the last month's worth of SI, from the May 2nd issue all the way back to their Baseball Preview at the beginning of April. I couldn't find a story fitting this description. I must have missed something.

Does anyone know what Laffer is referring to?

It was a stupid blog by a SI pseudo writer. It wasn't in the magazine proper. I'm sure someone here has a link, and I know it was the topic of several threads.

It was a blog from the online version

Thanks guys.

For one second, I thought that guy had a valid point. it can be painful being a Sox fan, and it's true we "can't win for losing."

Then it just got stupid. Ad hominem against Hawk, trashing the Cell as though he hadn't seen it in 3 years, and bashing our fast start with absolutely no justification or rationale. And why is "Grab some bench" chapping this guys bum so badly? I don't think Hawk has used "Grab some bench" since 1998!

Perhaps he'd be pleased to learn that the telecasts are in color now.

What a moron.

Mac Jurko and Harry had Hawk on yesterday and asked him about it- he said he laughed at it. According to Hawk that jackass has an axe to grind with White Sox.Just ignore the article, it aint worth the time.
