Welcome. Did anyone else get a laugh from chisox' last comment?

"...staff member recomended this site after i was bitching to him about joe crede".

I haven't been on this site very long myself but I'd say this poster came to the right place.

Heck, I was still shocked that "Ondafarm" was available when I got it.

Who are the "ChiSox?" I thought we were just the "Sox?" Oh, I forgot... the "Sox" are the Boston Red Sox... My bad. Thank you ESPN!

:wink:

Welcome to WSI. Home of the militant White Sox fans!

Welcome aboard.

And I can't wait until some posters stay saying that "We should never be the ChiSox" and bla bla bla. I will agree with them, but the old MLB Sox site was and still can be accessed by www.chisox.com (http://www.chisox.com). I hate the ChiSox tag name, but what are you going to do? Complain?

I'm just stunned that nobody before you took "chisox" as their screenname. :D:

Tell me about it. I picked this stupid name because I figured that anything White Sox related was either already taken, or have to numbers to it or something, like "SoxFan12983".

This is like that old line about the pretty girl who never gets a date because all the guys already think someone else has asked her out.

Hating on Joe Crede has gone the way of Aaron Rownd and his bad Routes!

Yeah, seeing that 'chisox' is just now taken is kind of surprising. There are so many names with 'chisox' in it (ahem), you would've thought that the original thing was taken a long time ago.

"A friend of mine noticed KW at the airport in Phoenix. He was rushing to pick up his luggage while talking on his cell phone. My friend tried to get close enough to hear the discussion. He managed to get within three feet of him. He tried evesdropping on his and managed to hear the following, "Konerko and Garland, thats right". KW then walked into an airline club room when he noticed that people were recognizing him. I don't know what any of this means , but I thought I'd pass it along."

Dude, you might wanna watch out. I got banned for a week after making some crack about Shingo trying Steroids. Be Careful.

i thought you guys were gonna give me a hard time about working at the trib, or at the very least, for taking the advice from someone who works for the trib, not my user name. i was shocked that it was available too.
i tried josecanseco6969 but it was already taken.

anyway, the sox just blew the lead in the bottom of the 7th, so i gotta get back to the edge of my seat.

Welcome to the greatest White Sox site around! The posters here are rabid, intelligent Sox fans who hate the northside minor league team as a hobby.

I think you meant that to be in teal.

Very funny chisox...I guess you'll fit right in here with the other blokes that always take shots at my name. Maybe you can convince the Mods for me to let me change it.:D:

Welcome to the site...but you'll have to learn how to complain about a bunch of other players as well.

Willie Harris used to be a good target last year, but he doesn't play as much this year...

The new favorites are Paulie, Dye, Vizcaino, Shingo, and Contreras.

I was the same as you -- viewer for many years, but I decided to start venting just recently.

Dye and Vizcanio have been main targets, Dye has stepped it up recently but still a main target. To add to that, Rowand and Crede used to be big targets to but it has seemed to help them
