Default White Sox New Nickname

Heard on xm mlb a twin fan saying they have the best pitching staff in the majors and that the "Whities" will not challenge. Never heard us referred to as the "Whities" before. Where is Jesse Jackson when you need him?

That's an idiotic nickname; no thanks.

It sounds like a limp-wristed attempt to nickname a team that doesn't need one--as if we would have something so lame, like the North siders referring to their team as the "Cubbies."

Bleck.

I think it's because we call them the Twinkies.

What a stupid name.

Although it would be slightly amusing to see a bunch of corn-fed minnesotans using "Kill Whitey" as their rallying call...

Whitey? Almost nobody on the team speaks English, including the manager.

The hard part was taking their thumb out of their ass long enough to write it on a sheet of paper so they wouldn't forget.

A very popular Minneapolis Star Tribune sportswriter, Patrick Reusse (pronounced roy-see) always calls the Sox "the whities." He's a real laid-back, laconic kind of guy, and when you hear him say it you realize that it just fits with his personality. I suspect a lot of Twins fans picked it up from him.
