Anyone know where you can find a list of all the "Grinder Ball Rules?"

Those commercials are awesome!

1 Win. Or die trying.
3 Grass stains. Dirt stains. Mud stains. Blood stains.
4 Knowing what's coming and hitting what's coming--not the same thing.
5 Every pitch is full count. Every inning, the ninth. Every game, game seven.
6 The best seat in the house should be determined by the best player in the house.
7 Grinder ball requires speed, defense, and discipline. And immigration.
10 Only one statistic matters: W
11 When jumping on the White Sox Bandwagon, do not, I repeat DO NOT, keep your hands and arms inside the wagon at any time.
18 NEVER be late for the National Anthem. No matter what nation you're from.
19 Flying does not make you superman. Getting up and making the throw to first for the force out, now that makes you Superman.
21 Thieves will be punished. Swiftly, harshly and repeatedly.
22 When attending a Chicago White Sox game, don't blink.
23 When all is said and done, make sure you "done" more than you said.
25 A good outfielder doesn't see the wall. He tastes it.
26 Your hitting should serve as a warning. To low flying aircraft.
28 Always give fans something they can take away from the game. Like the other team's pride.
30 Good enough, isn't.
33 The only way to get out of the hole you dig yourself, is to dig deeper.
37 Never walk. Even when you walk.
38 You're either counted on or counted out.
39 Be a man. Play like a boy.
43 Step up to the plate even if you're not stepping up to the plate.
44 There is more to baseball than peanuts and cracker jacks.
45 Respect the past, people that are shoeless, and anyone named Joe.
45 The best defense is a good win.
54 If you can't take the heat, get out of the batter's box.
55 It's called stepping up to the plate for a reason.
57 Batters should fear your fast ball. Not because it can get them out. Because it can knock them out.
58 In the unlikely event an opposing player turns a lucky swing into a home run ball here at U.S. Cellular Field - home of the Chicago White Sox - and an unsuspecting fan catches said ball, he or she should NOT throw the ball back onto the field of play.
66 If you're male and bringing a date to a White Sox game - sitting in the outfield will make you look bad.
73 When bringing your family to a Chicago White Sox game, know your limits.
74 Believe in Magic. Not Magic numbers.
75 Ixnay on talkin' about the ayoffsplay.
96 Expect the unexpected at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox.
