............There are individuals in the Chicago media whose primary mission in life in recent weeks seems to be calling the White Sox chokers.



Excellent article!!!!!!!!

I am now convinced that after we lost on Thursday last week to the Twinks, the team said "enough of making this interesting, time to get it over with!" I base this on the fact that suddenly they have looked like the Sox we loved and adored April-June. The Division should be clinch the night before we go to Cleveland making the Cleveland series meaningless to us, but serious for the Tribe because they will probably need to sweep us to ensure the WC spot. I don't think the Sox will be in the mood to lay down to the Tribe.

After the game ended today, I called my brother the Flub fan/Cleveland resident and fan to gloat. He said "there's plenty of baseball left." I told him that there wasn't, time had run out.

Just my humble assessment of the situation.

Tell your brother that grill he sees in his rear view mirrow has a Bos/NY logo on it and they are right on his bumper about to pass him up.:cool:

Of course I hope the Sox win the World Series this year, and IF they do I'd like to get a tee-shirt with this to wear when the Sox play Cleveland, Minn and the Cubs:

CHOKE ON THIS!
2005 WORLD CHAMPS!

Why don't you make your own shirt and sell them right by the guy who bangs on his drums underneath the 35th St. viaduct to the beat of "CUBS SUCK!"

I'll get one of those t-shirts if we win the central!

It gets better. He put his daughter (7 years old) on the phone whose mantra since she can talk is "Sox suck!" (I reported my brother to Child Protection in Ohio). She started up with the Sox suck stuff and I decided she is now old enough to take it from me. I told her if the Sox suck, the Indians are worse since we are going to the World Series and they aren't. She insisted the Tribe is going to the WS. She then informed me her 4 year old brother is a Sox fan.

The niece and nephew have birthdays 3 days apart. This year the nephew gets from me an expensive gift, niece gets lumps of coal. That'll teach her.

How about you send her a one-way ticket to visit Ronnie Woo Woo!!! :cool:

Tell your brother that grill he sees in his rear view mirrow has a Bos/NY logo on it and they are right on his bumper about to pass him up.:cool:And they both play tomorrow while the Toons are idle. Chances are high that there's going to be a tie in the WC race tomorrow night and there's not a damn thing the Indians can do about it.

The shirts may work out even IF the Sox don't win the World Series. You could have, "CHOKE ON THIS. WHITE SOX '05 AL CENTRAL CHAMPS. 9X - 6X."

Or this twist on a favorite from the '92 election:

Annoy the Media
Root for the White Sox

It is difficult to get a balanced reading on the Sox locally because the atmosphere was probably overly ecstatic earlier in the season and has undoubtedly been overly panicky in recent weeks.

Exactly who in the local media were overly ecstatic?

I noticed that line, too. Clearly this guy has never been to Chicago to read or hear the bull**** we Sox Fans put up with on a daily basis.
:o:

This guy needs to spend some quality time reading the "You write tomorrow's Cubune headline" threads.

This is spooky . . I have been thinking of variations on a "Choke on This" sign all weekend. Though now I like the idea of an "Annoy the Cubune -- Root for the Sox" tee shirt.

:hawk

"I love Sox-themed Tee shirts."

There, I fixed that for you. :cool:
