Not that it's a bad thing, but just in the last week or so it seems like we have had a lot of people making their first post on here. Is it because of the boring off-season?

I guess there's still a lot of off season action here while other boards may have died.

I just got a computer at home and just searched for sox sites. I couldn't get on them at work and that really bothered me.

Of all the searching I did, I liked the posts, pics, and articles here much more then the 3 other sites I saw.

Although I admit to being bias, I have to agree with you.

I was just a long time lurker who finally decided to take the time to register. I think I might have been registered long ago as wsoxfan or matt_nolte.

It is nice to have new people. The more th merrier. This also means there will be a need for new boards in the future which means a possible need for another moderator which means me.

The circle continues.

Did I miss something? How does more posters = the need for a new board?

The boards will overload with so many posts. Or you could create a new one to shut me the hell up.

Uh, tell me again why you wanna be a moderator? I don't think it's that difficult, they made CLR one.:)
I wonder what are the qualifactions of a moderator. Age? Experience? Power trip?

Oh yeah, just in case this goes of subject to parking lot material..The White Sox, uh...need more veteran pitching. Ah ha!

There is no need for mods here. There are no trolls here so no need to have someone waiting to shoot them down. The only thing a mod would do here is move posts like this to the parking lot.

I know there isn need for mods here, but I was just asking what the qualifications were. Just CLR practictly is a troll. Anyone who likes Wanne is a Troll. Thats strike 1.. 2.. 3.., 3 strikes your out!

PS: That was meant as an insult CLR :

PS: That was meant as an insult CLR : CLR is a mod because he runs the Picks to Click contest. It's a lot of work and he does a great job of it. He's an excellent Sox fan. You are correct that he has bad taste in football teams, though.

Ouch! That one hurt. Bears and Scrubs should never be mentioned in the same conversation unless someone is going to have the bears rush that dump of a ball park.

That helps. I was just wondering if anyone had written up a neat little story or something as to how the names came about. I know it began at Rivals because PHG made "about as much as the guy who works the fryer at McDonalds" or something like that.
Then FWC talked about his day-old paper and coffee that tastes like dirt.

Code I'm not sure I even know how George got the name. Usually I have a good memory but I guess that is not the case.

This story is one of the Clubhouse's longest-running inside jokes. Last year, somebody asked how much I was making from all the pop-up advertisements Rivals was flooding onto everyone's computer. I joked that once you factored in the hours per month I put into maintaining the site, the hourly wage was less than a french fry boy's at McDonald's. I remember also saying I had it better, because I punched my own schedule and never smelled of cooking grease.

Things just mushroomed from there. West is the security guard, Manuel is working the counter, CLR picks up trash in the parking lot, etc. It's been going on now for well over a year.

It's an inside joke just amongst us girls. The only place you can get in on the story is reading the posts here on the Sox Clubhouse board. Think of it as our secret handshake.

Just like any low-quality fast food joint, it's not wise to piss off the guy who is cooking your meal.
