Default The Sox are STILL second-class in this city...

I was at a watering hole in the South Loop Saturday night watching the game and eating some grub, as the Sox were putting the hurt on the Indians early, the game was turned off to cater to the Ohio state crowd in the bar (the 3) AND tennis was put on the other TV with the Sox on it!!!!!! The Cubs and Braves pivotal showdown was also on the TV. Sox were turned off, I grabbed the check and left.

The older Ohio St. crowd was talking at their table saying "Who wants to watch the Sox around here?" "Come on, put the Ohio state game on." "We need the ohio game on these two TVs."

This burned me up but SOX fans have the last laugh!!!

GO SOX!!

Let's Go Go White Sox! WE are proud of you!!!!!

I'm guessing you were watching the game at either:

1. Cork & Kerry
2. Gilhooley's
3. Tailgate Bill's
4. Bourbon Street
5. Keegan's
6. McNally's

Yeah, I made the mistake of watching the game downtown for a bit. I love Cork.

Making the post season in back to back years for the first time in franchise history will help solve that. That's one of the issues riding on the performance the final three weeks.

I have lived in the South Loop a long time. There are a lot of Sox fans around here and I have never had a problem at any establishment in this neighborhood if I asked the person in charge to put the Sox game on at least one screen. Haven't been to the SLC in some time but I will swing by soon and check it out. Maybe some idiot was catering to tourists (Hilton is two blocks away). I'm on it.

Yes, I've never had a problem with any bar there. Krolls, we went to Kasey's Thursday night, and even Hackney's puts the games on. With all the TVs in the SLC, you would think they could have the Sox on at least one...
