Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Posted 03-17-2012 at 07:09 AM by October26 (My White Sox Lunchbox)

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]To celebrate spring and in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I'm posting a garden blog entry. I realize spring doesn’t officially begin until next Tuesday, March 20th. However, here in Chicago, it feels like we skipped spring and jumped right into summer. We are having the most peculiar weather in Chicago this spring and as a gardener, I am feeling quite challenged. Last fall, my husband and I planted spring bulbs - daffodils/buttercups & tulips...

"Robin! Hiya...What The?" New Manager, New Verse

Posted 03-06-2012 at 08:43 AM by tebman (Try To Hit 'Em Where They Ain't)

It's a new season in so many ways. Robin Ventura's arrival will one day be told as an epic tale, but until that happens, here's an abbreviated Song of South Side Spring.

Profound apologies in advance to H. W. Longfellow, though I'm confident that both he and his Hiawatha would have an appreciation for the rhythmic drama we've all endured.


On the shores of Mishigami,
By the shining big-bean sculpture,
Stood the city of Chicago,
City of the wind,...

[B]Regular Season[/B]

[B]White Sox 89-65, 2nd, 2 GB[/B]
[B]679,923[/B]

The 1916 Sox were inching ever closer to the goal of an AL pennant. They finished four games off the pace from 1915, but it was good enough for 2nd place, only two games out. Pants Rowland put up with critics in the press and fan corps as the Sox lagged in 6th place at 26-28. After that, they caught fire and went on a hot streak.

The Sox went into September with a good shot at the...

1915 City Series

The Old Roman effected changes for 1915. He fired manager Nixey Callahan and surprised people by hiring Clarence "Pants" Rowland, a "busher" who had never played a day in the major leagues. Back then, hiring a manager who had never played in the majors was unheard of.

He also improved the team by purchasing one of the best players in baseball, Eddie Collins...
