I was thinking the same thing. Last year, it was World War III or something like that. Today, it's just the next series for each team.

I don't wish to cause physical harm to a Sox fan (Downey is,
believe it or not),but who the :cuss: are you calling Soxxies?!?!?

That is not a term associated wth the Sox.Palehose,South Siders,
CWS (box scores),South Side Hitmen (or Pitchmen,take your pick),
all are acceptable.BTW, I also frown on "Cutesy" nicknames
(A-Row,Podsie,etc.).The last thing I want to see the Sox become
is a cuddly sCrUBbie crew.The Sox are hard nosed,aggressive,
kick ass,take names later type of guys.They are not cute and
cuddly.:angry: :angry:

It'll become a much more "important" story in the Cubune if the Cubs win 2 or 3 of the games.

"If," the biggest word in the English language.

He's a Sox fan. Soxxies is his way of rubbing it in for cub lovers. It's sarcasm. When you write a column of 25 one-liners, you have to reach for humor a little bit. Good observations above on the lack of hype for the series.

Who cares if people call the Sox the Soxxies? If they come out to the park and support the team I really don't care what they call the Sox.
