Default Until the Fat Lady Sings Thread

Too many damn pessimists 'round these parts. We are in the thick of a pennant race, and there's no way to figure out this thing...so let's enjoy the ride until the gas runs out.

Who's with me???

Like I said in the magic number thread, I feel like Charlie Brown with Lucy holding the ball for me to kick. Regardless, I'll be watching every game until the season ends.

I'm in. Where else would I be? I can understand being frustrated, but giving up with 5 games to play and down one is loser talk.

GO SOX!!!

"Unfortunately, for us, watching the scoreboard won't help us. But we can go out there and be a part of one with the other team," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "You're looking out there and seeing the Mighty Whities are winning. And we're in one of those twister games. So it is fun."

God bless you guys. It raises my spirits to see a thread like this.

Win or lose. In to the end.

I'm in. I thought I was in the Acceptance phase of grieving...and then a muscle twitched, and they took a deep shuddering breath, and hope arose again. Go White Sox!!!

I posted this in the acceptance thread yesterday

Quote:
Detroit has not been very good on the road this year. Tonight certainly seems like a good chance for the Sox to pick up a game. So, we'll see what happens. I figure the Sox can loose one more game this year. 87 wins probably takes the division.

It's funny. I happened to catch Peter Gammons on the score this morning and he was going on about how people looked at the Sox lineup and figured they were prone for a slump. And that people looked at the Sox starting rotation and figured it wouldn't be able to hold up. I'm sorry, Peter, what were you and all those "people" saying 2 weeks ago? I believe it was something like "Detroit's defense is just too bad to win the division." Baseball sure is a fickle game.

For me, I'm going to hope against hope that the Sox can pull this out. Nor will I go down without a fight (even if that means just being in a bad mood because the Sox are losing. ). I hope the Sox don't go down without a fight either. We've been riding this roller coaster for awhile now, why not see it to the end?

Six games left, Sox. Give us a thrill!
So far, so good.

I'm in.
