1978 Opening Day-

Ron Bloomberg homers in the bottom of the 9th- Wayne Nordhagen bloop single scores Chet Lemon to beat the Red Sox in extra innings-

(I cut school and baseball practice- got a slap on the wrist- but a great memory)

I just upgraded my TV package so I now have comcast sportsnet Chicago. I am looking forward to leaving work early Monday, coming home and watching a White Sox winner!

Weather forecast for Monday gets better every time I check it. NWS is calling for a high of 64 with 30% chance of storms. Weather Channel calling for high of 56, mostly sunny with 10% chance of rain.

Yes! Rain is expected to hold off until later in the evening!

After the pure hell we've put up with this winter, we deserve an Opening Day forecast like this! I'm so stoked to get out to the ballpark on Monday and FINALLY watch some live baseball!

The weather gods have shined down on the Sox this year. This looks like it will be the nicest Opening Day, weather wise, since the 2005 opener:


Weather Channel now at 67 as a high for Monday with 10% chance of rain. The rest of the week: Tues 51, Wed 40, Thur 42, Fri 43, Sat 43.

NWS: High of 65, mostly sunny and breezy.

Skilling: High of 68:
Warmest day of 2014.
Partly sunny and very windy for the White Sox home opener as highs soar to the middle and upper 60s, levels about 15 degrees above normal. Gusty south winds 18-28 mph. Chance for showers late but a better chance at night.

Default A 2014 Ballad

Two Days 'til Opening Day!

Ah, the time draws nigh for Opening Day! Not soon enough, but soon. New seasons bring out the song in all of us. Join me in an overpriced plastic cup of beer as we sing limericks to the 2014 White Sox:



There once was a team in Chicago
Whose fans had resolved to embargo,
Until it was shown
That some talent was grown,
And Rick Hahn had shown some bravado.

So off he began to pursue
New players who could hit and who threw
Better than those
When we held our nose,
Watching that old team we knew.

Matt Thornton was sent off to Boston.
His pitching was often exhaustin’.
Fastballs galore,
Hitters ran up the score,
Feasting on meatballs he’s tossin’.

And down in the Tampa Bay sands,
They took Jesse Crain off our hands.
We’ll miss him, we knew,
But after review
He just didn’t fit in our plans.

The paycheck to Peavy was costin’
So Hahn sent ol' Jake off to Boston.
At first it seemed weird,
But when smoke had all cleared,
Avi Garcia was tossed in.

The Sox found themselves often beaten
By clumsy and clueless outfieldin’.
DeAza should sit
When fly balls get hit,
So Hahn got instead Adam Eaton

And now we begin a new season.
We’ll come if we’re given a reason.
We still have Chris Sale
And the Sox will unveil
A lineup Hahn hopes we find pleasin’.


See you at the ballpark!

Wish everyone all the best for opening day and for the season. The Sox won't win more than they lose this year but they won't be as bad as last season...and progress will be made.

Some memories from my 38 Opening Days:

Best game: 1978 The aforementioned Blomberg home run. Tied with 2005 Buehrle 2 hitter.
Worst game: 1991. The first game at New Comiskey lost 16-0.
Coolest game: 2006. Banner raising ceremony.
Best pitching performance: 2005. Buehrle 2 hitter.
Best weather: 1985. Upper 70's. Tied with 2010 mid 70's and Sunny.
Worst weather: 1982 10 inch snowstorm cancels Opener Opener not played until April 17th.
Worst weather with game played: 1979. Low 30's drizzle and sleet.
Most bizarre day: 1992. Downtown freight tunnel flood.
Never saw that coming: 1988. Kenny Williams hits game winning home run.
Best play: 2010. Buehrle through his legs to Paulie's.
Grand slams: 1981 Fisk. 2008. Crede.
Biggest crowd: 1981 51,560.
