The SOX do some major catching up today, very nice to see. I was very much expecting Maddux to be on the cover, with some sort of headline with the word GEM in it (okay, the word GEM was used) This is more like it, the SOX are able to gain some ground. And they looked excellent yesterday too.
Chicago Tribune:
2 cub stories
4 sox stories
Chicago SunTimes:
2 cub stories
6 sox stories

The Sox also got some national pub with the hair and the water slide issues! Could it be a turnaround? ......nah.

Good to see the national coverage is for the right reasons...:rolleyes:

Conan O'Brien was at the Cell Yesterday afternoon. I guess he will be doing something on the Sox when his show comes here next month.

I could have sworn I saw Cal Ripken talking to Hawk and DJ in the booth. I didn't have the best view though.

He was there? Well of course the masses wont know this, because the Media simply wont tell us.

Agreed. It would have been nice if the major news outlets focused on the superb one-hitter that Contreras et. al. threw last night (and the 9-run Sox offense), instead of making it a secondary story to the haircut drama.

But, as you know, we Sox fans can't be choosy.

Conan was doing something with Dye. I can't believe that it wasn't mentioned in the papers today. I should have known better. It just goes on and on.

Thanks for the info. It took pcp1960 to tell SOX fans about this, while the SunTimes and Trib drops the ball.

I saw that too. Even though Wilbon is a Flubs fan and Kornheiser is a NY guy, I think they are both really fair to the White Sox.

It's sad when "fair" means "doesn't attack like others sports media-types do".

Oh well, I've gotten used to it.

FWIW, Anderson's diving catch was a Web Gem.

Hangar, I wouldn't give too much credit here, The Flub game ended late on the west coast. If they played a 2pm home game, the Trib might have had enough time for a special commemorative Maddux' 321st win section.

Mr. Knue would be here pointing out how the Sox were on the West Coast but the week before when the flubbies were on the WC they'd still get more coverage.

What's the over/under when the Sox go on the West Coast on how many rants Hangar will make because the Cubs are getting more press.

He could have been there for the xm radio show he has.
