Has Hawk become Santo? Nope. Not even close. He is also missing the element of being a fan favorite player of the team who whined every time the HOF vote passed him up.
When Hawks dies, will the White Sox fanbase act as if they lost their closest friend ever and make him out to be the male version of Mother Theresa? Nope. Hell, he's not even Harry Caray. He's just Hawk.
This just in from the newswires: The Anti-Trust Division of the US Department of Justice has announced that whenever Sale take The Bump, it is unfair competition in violation of various federal and state laws. However, he is not being prosecuted because it is so ****in awesome to watch him do his craft.
