guess we had the same thought at the same time....you guys can let my thread die on this subject..or just have a moderator remove it...those guys were great..i thought i was listening to jimmy piersall all over again...these guys are onto something...guido..the play by play guy...is as good as any in baseball...i cant believe that's the first time he has ever done that...i was really impressed with the on air quality...every sox fan that reads this should check these guys out..

what i liked about it was you dont have guys being paid by the team to broadcast the game...so they can say whatever they want...and was fun to heat them rip on the cubs..calling freddie mgriff "mcwiff" cracked me up...never heard that one before...when a great play was made..like crede made at third they got genuinely excited...

something about life long sox fans with a genuine love for the game and the team doing the broadcast..for free...not getting paid...that really made it special..

check it out..they are really onto something

Thanks a lot guys. We had some great feed back and tried our best to give you a good game call so you didn't have to listen to Chimp and Mo. Whoa! Too many beers today. Glad to everyone listening and we really appreciate it. Too bad them ****in flubbies won!! :angry: I still can't figure out how in the hell they shut us out.

:D: I couldn't agree more baggio. I LOVED them. Real people, our people doing the game. I laughed through the whole thing. I was surprised how good they were, this being their first time and all. These guys ROCK! I wish they could do every game. I'm not buying that they actually have lives and can't do this all the time. :oP

It's definatly in the plans. I just have to make sure we don't get thrown in the joint for this. :D: It's definatly in the plans though. I think they'd look pretty cool. The best thing about his is: none of us had to put on an act. this is how we really are toward eachother when we have a night on the town or just hang out. We'll have to get you on there baggs. You know all of us so you'll blend right in.

I didnt get to hear the play by play but i did tune in to the pregame show just in time to here the crew basically say i was a moron for thinking Singleton was a HOF'er. No need to bash me because the rest of you are blind. :)

This thing sounds like an awesome idea and I can't wait to hear it...

Just out of curiousity, has anyone considered whether this is a "rebroadcast, retransmission or other account of this game without the express written permission of the Chicago White Sox and Major League Baseball?" I'd hate to see WSI go under because of an MLB lawsuit.

O Dude , I don't belive we EVER said you we're a MORON for thinking Singleton was a HOF ! Nope ! We said for those people who might think that he is , are trapped in a LSD world of trails and flash backs !!!!!!!!!!!

I doubt this matters but it does say on the front page New at WSI: Sox-and-Roll. I don't think MLB would sue or anything over this though. Well actually you never know with MLB. :(:

Although I probably won't ever listen, good luck guys! (honestly)

Exactly what I was thinking, Im sure the WhiteSox organization are aware of WSI and could follow the link to Sox & Roll. I just don't see the Sox brass allowing you to rebroadcast.

Personally though, I think the broadcast is awesome, except for the fact that I only have a 56k modem.

Yup. WSI and Sox-and-roll are 2 different sites. If there ever is any blame, it's all soxandroll. Not WSI. We're not making money, so if anyone gets pissed of fthat we speak the truth , I would imagine all that will be done is they'd tell us to cut it out. If we get attention it's because we're doing something right and using our freedom of speech that someone wants to take away. We're 10 seconds behind on the play by play and there are no rebroadcasted voices or sounds of the game.

I don't think it is a rebroadcast, unless you are using the words and pictures they are using. I assume you are watching on TV and doing PBP yourselves.

Might want to have a legal mind look at it anyway, just to be safe. Certainly wouldn't want to enter a gray area on slander and end up losing more than just your website.

CLR.... You egomaniac. That wasn't about you. And I do remeber apologising to you personally over the air for us ripping your boy. It might have sounded sarcastic as I like to be, but the intent was there. I really hope you are kidding about Singleton going to the HOF. :D:

Oh yeah, I forgot there have been others who have come out of the closet about their true feelings of Singleton as a ball player. :smile: I only caught about 3 minutes of the pregame so i didnt hear very much. Looking forward to catching more of the next broadcast.

Do i really have to answer the singleton question for you? :?: :?:

Hey Red,

When do you change up the music? I started listening this morning and it is starting to repeat the playlist.

Dialup wasn't handling it too well at all. I checked it out the other day and I would get about 5 seconds of music and then 10 seconds of nothing. I'm sure DSL or Cable work much better.





Damn, I upgrade my computer and it still isn't fast enough...

I'll upload up a new play list tonight. it takes a while though. Sucks that i only get 100 mb on the server. Glad you listened enough to know it was the same playlist. it was 4 1\2 hours long. lol

Yeah, music might sound a little off especially 2 hours before the game because it's a live broadcast and it's coming from my computer's hard drive however, the game broadcast should sound clear because it's much less information being processed. Any other time you listen to music, it should improve because it runs off a server. The station might be off air for a couple hours tonight because i have to upload about 50 songs for a new playlist. I might do that late tonight though.

Everclear, Live, Springsteen, Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel, Foreigner. How's that for Variety?

Project Wyze's song Nothing's what is seems you could listen to and tell me what you think?

Got any Stryper? Just kidding.

I liked the harder stuff alot. Especially the old metal stuff like Iron Maiden. Most of the stuff I had was on cassette, some on vinyl, and most of it is long gone.
