On Boston's WZLX this morning sports director TANK was gushing about the Red Sox visiting the City of Chicago next weekend for the first time since 1918 when they play the Cubbies.

The morning host said "what about the White Sox?"

Tank replied "they play outside the city in Cicero, Illinois in an industrial park that is hard to get to, that is why they have no fans"

Tank
WZLX Sports Director, 5:30 - 9 a.m.
http://wzlx.com/images/jocks/tank.jpgTank started working in radio in 1977 as an intern at WBCN. In 1982, he got his first break doing the Sports Reports on Charles Laquidara's "Big Mattress" show. In 1986, Tank moved on to host a sports show on TV Channel V66. Tank later rejoined WBCN as Sports Director, co-hosting the first year of the "WBCN Patriots Rock Radio Network." In 1996, Tank returned to the Charles Laquidara Radio Hour to do Sports once again, at its new home with WZLX. Today, Tank is the familiar, amicable voice that sweeps through with the sports reports on the Classic Rock Morning Show with Steve Sweeney. http://wzlx.com/images/pixel.gif

I wrote this media jack-ass. I let him know that the Red Sox have visited
CHICAGO previously, and have done so every year since at least 1901, will be here to visit the White Sox again in July of 2005, so this visit will NOT be their firstvisit. To gush about the visit is misleading, incorrect and ignorant of the facts.

I really just don't know how you can have a job as any sort of journalist when you don't know basic information like where the White Sox play.

Not that I'm surprised.

It takes like 10 seconds to look this information up on the Internet too. I mean it's not like the location of USCF is some deep dark secret that only the CIA has access to. If Tank really didn't know where Soxpark is, he should have at least qualified his statement with "I don't think USCF is located inside the geographical limits of the city." But he clearly was speaking with authority the way this statement is presented here.

It's always been a source of pride to Chicago Sports fans that Chicago is the only city in the country with 5 professional sports team all still within the city limits (Philly has 4). A buddy of mine saw the flubs, Sox and Bears all live on the same day (I went to the final two games with him). We only saw the second half of the preseason Bears game and missed the final out at Comiskey, but we made last call at the beer booth, so it was all good. You cannot do that anyplace else in the world.

Hey Tank - Tis better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

It's already happened to Mae. Last November, a Boston radio station reported Red Sox manager Terry Francona as having had an affair with Mae. The host used a rumour in the New York Post, citing an unnamed manager and a sports anchor in a large market. He filled in the blanks. The DJ was fired after Red Sox lawyers entered the picture.

BTW the Red Sox radio announcer who was killed Monday morning was wearing the ring when he left Yankee Stadium, but it was not on him at the scene of the crash. Massachusetts State Police are looking for it.

Remember a couple years ago when the Yankees came here to play the Cubs? The media treated it like it was the first time NY had been here too. Sort of the "old World Series opponents" matchup. And the very same weekend the Sox were in LA facing their old WS opponent; I'm sure the extra attention given them by the LA media made up for the indifference we were paid by the Chicago media here.

Outside of the disturbing scumbag who stole a ring off of a dead man, this thread rules with its comedic value.


Starting with some mediot named "Tank" so matter-of-factly, incorrectly stating in great detail where USCF is located--***--to Baby Fisk caring enough to post this douche's bio--to a cheeses_h_rice Saddam blast--to the Sox fans feeling the need to educate Tank on where USCF is located (which is a response I'm greatly anticipating; please post your responses)--to another classic fenway post full of pictures--to info that Francona is batting 1.000 with ugly, large-foreheaded, big schnozed ladies--to a Nellie_Fox, FarWestChicago, fquaye149 trio--and ending with a Rocklive99 WSI inside joke.

This thread rules.

The Red Sox have already said they will replace the ring for the family.

Stripping valuables from traffic accident or heart attack victims is not as rare an occurrence as you might think. It's a matter of location.
