Palos? That's a reach...

I shudder to think of all the even more moronic nicknames this team will get as it continues to be the best team in baseball.

Oh well... small price to pay, I guess... :cool:

That's just a really dumb headline overall. "Row Your Sox"? Whatever.

I'm guessing it's a shorthand way of saying "Pale Hose," but again, that's just a guess. :?:

That's calcetines or medias. Palos is a southwestern suburb...but I doubt the MLB beat guys are aware of it. :cool:

There are three Palos communities: Palos Park, Palos Hills, and Palos Heights. Maybe Levine has the Sox moving to the Palos area.

Well, according to the Palos Park website (http://www.palospark.org/history.htm), here's the story:

The name of the town was Trenton; it was changed in 1850 to Palos. This recommendation was made by M.S. Powell, the first Postmaster. One of his ancestors sailed with Christopher Columbus from Palos de Fronters. It is noted that in Spanish it means "Tall Tree", "The Mast of a Shop" [sic] or "Promontory".

So there you go -- our Sox have become the Chicago Tall Trees!

Calm down everyone, it was a typo. They edited it, it now says "Pale Hose"

So they didn't do it on purpose? That actually seems worse that they didn't know it was 'Palehose' and put 'Palos' because they heard the name by ear or something

Maybe they didnt have room for Pale Hose in the headline. Sometimes I don't have room so I don't type spaces, soit endsup lookinglike thisgarbage.

palos means woods in spanish.

Dang, I kinda like "Palos". It is a shortened form of "palehose" and it is also mimicks "Halos", which of course refers to the Angels, who won a WS with a style that the Sox are emulating now.

Headline writing is an art. This headline isn't even Elvis on velvet.
