I love that the SOX have resurrected the 1950's era fight song "Go Go Go you white .....sox" They played it during the rally and had the words on the scoreboard, and showing the video along with it .......... It really got the
crowd buzzing and into it

They played it during the BEST GAME EVER. The Saturday game vs. Dodgers when we scored like 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th with two outs to win the game. When the SOX were wearing the AWESOME 1959 unis...
Yesterday's game was *almost* as good...

I've seen the video being played sometime around the 7th inning stretch for last night's game and the last one I was at. I, however, must not have seen the positive reaction and it seemed like a lot of people around me (bleachers) were asking to each other "what the hell was that?".

Isn't that the reaction of almost anything out in the bleachers?:wink:

Yeah I was there last night too. It was awesome. It should become a permanent fixture at our park, and wherever else possible!

They played that song going into the 9th inning on Rat Pack Night, Friday the 8th against Oakland. Didn't cause a rally though. stupid oakland

No, but they did play it before the bottom of the 8th inning on July 5th vs. Tampa and they did rally and go ahead and win. It was awesome.

No way ......... some people in my section were seeing it for the first time
and loved it ........ it somehow just seemed to fit perfectly with this team
and its fans .... KEEP PLAYING IT!

Then maybe, we stick with what works...they should be the 2005 Go Go White Sox....we rechanneled the 59 uni's, we beat the Dodgers (which didn't happen in '59), so why not??

I sent Brooks an email after the Dodgers series telling him that he should resurrect that theme, because the energy was so electric after that game, and the song is catchy. I was glad to see them implement it again, because this team draws many parallels to the '59 team. I loooooove that song...

They played it during the June 26th Sox/Cubs game, too, though I don't remember exactly when - it was either between innings or before the game, but definitely not after... stupid Cubs....

They played it the 1st game of the Dodgers series as well. Last night's game had the biggest response to it though during the 7th inning rally. The entire crowd seemed to be clapping along with the song. They should really consider making it a fixture during rallies and showing the video that goes with it on TV. I love it, and the fans seem to really be adopting it again.
