At this miserable part of a miserable season, how much Sox are you watching or listening to?

I still watch, but I'm looking forward to the fall TV season this year.

Man, this season has been awful.

I still start watching but then like tonight after Ole MacDoodle screwed the pooch I have to change the channel. But I will check back, why can't I just stay away!:?:

I still watch. I'm not a football, basketball, or hockey fan...and High Stakes Poker is only on Monday nights.

I'm somewhere in between these choices. I don't keep track of the score on a daily basis (my busy schedule just won't let me sometimes), but when I can watch I will. If the game starts going down the tubes fast (most do) then I am likely to turn it off.

This truly is a miserable season.... but yes, I still love the Sox and we'll continue to watch. Always have, always will.

I still watch most of the games on MLB.TV. I don't post much anymore; not much to post about. :whiner:

I still watch most; however, tonight, I took a pretty long three-hour nap from 7 until just now. I've been finding myself taking naps during watching the game from time-to-time this year as well. I do know each score at least before hitting the pillow, however.

I can't wait for Blackhawks, Bears, and Bulls seasons.

To be honest with you, I've been more interested in the *hopeful* falls of the Red Sox and Cubs the past month or so!

I'm wallowing in the futility. I try to turn it off, but I can't stay away.

Although I have stopped reading the sports section of the newspapers the next day.

Still watching at least a few innings each night on Gameday. I follow softball rules, and consider the game over after 7 innings.
Sox are like 20 games over .500 in my world.

I must be a glutton for punishment... still listening to and/or watching all of the games. :o:

Watch? Heck, I go to the games! I'm at the game Saturday at Cleveland. Plan on being at all the remaining home games except 9-15 (schedule conflict).

Win or lose, you can't beat fun at the 'ole ballpark.

I haven't really been watching since July. The end of summer was busy for me and I didn't really want to waste my time watching a team that doesn't care if they win or lose.

I truly respect all of you that are still watching/listening to the games. You guys have a lot more tolerance than I do, that's for sure.

I've been busy with work and all of my friends getting married this summer, so I've just kept tabs on the scores if I'm at work or traveling, and watched games whenever I can. I've been to about 12 or so games, I think I've seen 2 wins.:(:

I still watch. Maybe I still can't believe this type of play is possible at the major league level.

Unfortunately, I'm still watching. :(:

Still get to 2/3 of the home games and watch at least parts of other games.

I'm a baseball junkie.

With my expectations at zero right now, it's not too bad watching them. Since I don't expect anything, I don't get worked up when they screw up. I keep reminding myself the Tigers lost 119 games in 2003, went to the World Series in 2006.

I watch on the computer so it doesn't really affect my channel surfing. :D:

However, I'm not being religious about it and Thursday night I opted for the Bears game on gamecast until Cleveland got off to a big lead and the Bears had already pulled everyone of interest.

I wouldn't consider myself a fan if I didn't try to watch or listen to every game, that won't change 'til I'm on my death bed! I love the Sox!!!!!!

Pretty much every pitch. Good or bad, I will always love the Sox.

I usually listen and occasionally watch every game, and as painful as it is I can't break away- I'm too much of a fan. Soon it will all be over and can begin focusing on the offseason.

This has been tough.

Well said, sir.

I'm a diehard Sox fan and a diehard baseball geek. I know the Sox are horse(bleep) this season, but I have to watch at least some of every game.

In December and January, I know I'll be wishing they were still playing so I could get my fix. I can't say that for the Bears and I really like football.

Football season doesn't officially start for me until the Sox' schedule is complete. I would have said until the Sox are done, but they've been finished since June.

I said this team reminded me of the 1970 team and was laughed at . Looks like I'm right ; sad but true. Bring up the kids and prepare for next season.

When I'm not doing something related to starting a business, I check 'em out. It's like drinking molten lead nowadays, but it makes the future championships so much better!

The '05 team was loaded with great pitching as well as a bunch of position players that had a lot to prove, either by shedding the injury prone label (Everett, Dye, El Duque) or the clubhouse cancer tag (A.J.). This team has the talent at key spots. They need to plug in some players that are hungry and have a killer attitude (Torii Hunter would be a great start), and things will get better quickly.

For once, being in a TV black hole (too far for channel 26, too close for Comcast) hasn't bothered me quite as much.:rolleyes:

I still start to listen to every game and keep checking on the score but I've taken to avoiding sports pages and newscasts.

I'm going to be in Chicago in September so I'll go to a game. Hell, it's still baseball and the White Sox. Gotta take the bad with the good. And as other posters have said, in 2003 Detroit lost 119 . . . . .
