can ya' get rid of the bad uniforms at the top of the home page?

too many bad sox uniform stories............

opening day 1976 I had a new girlfriend & a day off so I was at

her house in South Bend with a 12 pack of beer & boones farm

wine for her....we watched the game on tv....Bill Veeck marched

out with the fife & drum group to celebrate the bicentennial &

the sox unveiled the "new" turn back the clock uniforms. I loved

them!.............for 1 year........that was enough! when I found

myself sitting in Anaheim Stadium 5 years later watching the

Sox & halos I was emabarrassed to see those dregs & longed

for a tradtional Sox uniform...thank goodness we have the

uniforms that we have now...guess I am longing for the next

opening day...that old girlfriend, now long gone was pretty good

Wasn't that also the day that paul richards started Rich Gossage? And he pitched us to a win, guessing 4-2 v. royals maybe?
