As you all know, next year marks the 100th anniversary of the 1906 World Series title over the cubs. It sounds like KW and Brooks are running with this from Opening Day. We need to provide Brooks with some other ideas for further commemorating one a great event in the history of western civilization.

Go to work boys and girls.

They shouldn't. Maybe if the Sox didn't win the World Series last season this would be a good idea, but now it just seems pointless.

I think just wearing some throwbacks for the interleague games at the Cell is plenty.

How about celebrating the '06 WS Championship over the Cubs with a '06 WS Championship over someone NOT named the Chicago Cubs? :gulp:

It's pointless to have a season long celebration commerorating a championship we won 100 years ago, when we just won one three months ago!!!

I don't think we should pay too much attention to a 100-year anniversary. Let the Cubs do that; they're only 2 years away. :redneck

Amen Brother!

The only way to move on from this cubs competition is to recognize that they aren't even in our league (literally and figuratively). Enough with the biggest losers in baseball, we're the biggest winners!!!!

Let's celebrate 2005 and enjoy 2006, to 1906 I say, "We would have beaten someone else that year if there had been more than like 3 teams."

Cubs who?

You are correct, the Cubs still hold the title for most wins in the National League. The Sox were called the hitless wonders.

Not entirely. The Seattle Mariners tied that record in 2001. The Cubs still hold the record for the best winning percentage in a single regular season; but, they choked it away by losing to our Sox in the World Series! :D:

Well, the Cubs still hold the NL record; Seattle tied the MLB record. A team today would have to go 124-38 to break the % mark.

And the Mariners choked, too, in the 2001 playoffs.

I don't know how we should celebrate the Sox 1906 title, but I know how I will spend 2008: Celebrating the fact that the Cubs will have gone 100 years without winning the World Series. I believe Oct 14, 2008 will make it a century so it will fit in perfectly with my yearly celebration of "the Bartman game," which took place on Oct 14, 2003. We shouldn't forget in the glory of the White Sox' championship to kick the Cubs while they're down. And they're always down.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in 2008 the Chicago Cubs will become the first professional sports team in history to go 100 years without a championship in their respective sport. I don't know of any other professional sports franchise with such a record of futility.


Of course, they rule the world in attendance prizes. :rolleyes:

I heard that they were going to wear the throwbacks when they play the Cubs, I think this is a great idea, Celebrating the 100 year anniversary when we beat the Cubs in front of all the Cubs fans at the Cell. and I would rather have a year long celebration of the 2005 world series than the 1906.

I don't know about you, but I love the White Sox. I hate the Cubs. but most of the time I couldn't care less what they do. No offense, but a yearly celbration of the Bartman game is really pathetic. Nearly as pathetic is believing in curses. You should save your celebrations for special events in White Sox history, like the one that happened on October 26. This isn't cubssuckinteractive.com, it's whitesoxinteractive.
I will get nothing but a good chuckle out of knowing that the Cubs have gone 100 years without a title. After that chuckle, I will go back to my daily regimine, come back on here and spar with Hangar.:duel:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the Rockies own the single season attendance record, for their inaugural season. A record they were well on their way to breaking in their second season when play was called off due to the player's strike. Furthermore, I don't believe that Wrigley has the capacity to challenge that record. Also the single game attendance record goes to opening day at the old Mile High Stadium (originally known as Bears' Stadium for the Denver Bears) in the first year of the Rockies' existence. That record is over 80,000 and second place I believe is under 2/3 of that. I also know that in the inaugural season of the Rockies, when I attended 62 games at home, they often had 70 k+ in the stands. Mile High had a normal capacity of just short of 77k. In short I don't believe the Cubs' attendance figures are all that great when compared to historical figures.


http://colorado.rockies.http://colorado.rockies.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/col/history/

Attendance Inagural Home game: 80227

September 26 - The inaugural attendance is final: 4,483,350.

1994:

June 26 - The Rockies claim one of the few Major League attendance records not yet in their possession, drawing 217,009 fans to a three-game series vs. the Giants. July 17 - Colorado tops one of its own attendance records, drawing 259,113 to a four-game series against St. Louis.

You ARE correct - but not by much. Yes, those laughable losers will be the first to hit 100 years, however, they have at least assured themselves of the futility title. The Philadelphia Phillies went 97 years without jack squat from their start in 1883 - finally ending with Tug McGraw, Rose, Schmidt, etc. in 1980. (btw - they are the oldest team in existence to keep the same name - the sCrUBS, although begun in 1876, had no idea what to call themselves for several years - typical).

In 2006, the sCrUBS will embark on their 98th campaign since winning in 1908 - after winning it in 1907. Pathetic.

i was at a padres game in 98 at Jack Murphy Stadium now known as Qualcomm. the attendance was nearly 66,000. due to it being a football stadium. game was against the Cubs which the Padres lost. Sammy Sosa hit his 63rd that night sending Kevin Brown into a rampage against the citizens of San Diego for cheering him.

It's good that it is in May this year because last year during the interleague games at Comiskey in June, it was about 172 degrees. And it would be nearly impossible to be dressed head-to-toe in that weather!
