Chicago sports

Posted 05-28-2009 at 10:24 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

I'll put this here instead of a thread.

I find myself disliking Chicago sports, except for the White Sox. Seriously. I don't follow the Bears anymore. I used to be a huge fan. Now I couldn't care less if their QB is Jake Cutler, Rhett Butler or whoever the hell it will be next year. Big freaking deal. Same with the Bulls. YAWN. I don't care.

Now with the Blackhawks. I just saw a thread saying "thank you for this and that" and blah, blah, blah. I never liked...

"Released" Is Another Word for "Laid Off"

Posted 05-19-2009 at 08:43 PM by tebman (Try To Hit 'Em Where They Ain't)

Jerry Owens found a job in the Seattle Mariners organization. I'm glad he did. After his shoulder injury and whatever other afflictions, he couldn't regain the flash of promise he showed in AA ball in 2005. When the White Sox released him on May 2nd he was only hitting .083 and was let go to make room for another on the conveyor belt of players who show promise.

I was thinking about Owens and the many players gone before who've been released. I thought of the scene in "Bull...

Book idea-"The 50 Greatest Games That Did Not Involve the Yankees or Red Sox"

I have had an idea for a while-a book entitled "The 50 Greatest Games that Did Not Involve the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox." This book would take a look at games that are, for the most part, overlooked by the ESPN-driven hype fest for the Yankees and Red Sox. The purpose would be to say enough!-to all the damn hype and the books about baseball's great moments being monopolized by those two teams. I mean, come on. ESPN.com last year had a list of great LCS moments, I think it...

"Greatest White Sox Team of All Time" simulation tournament

Posted 05-15-2009 at 03:50 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

So I decided to have a little fun with my "Greatest White Sox Team of All-Time" rankings and submit them to a tournament to see who would beat who over a seven-game series. Now I have no delusions about how such scenarios would actually play out. It would be enormous fun if we could somehow get all these teams together and see them play-and how it would turn out. For now, though, I turn to whatifsports.com computer simulations. Kind of stinks in that I would much rather do it the old-fashioned...
