Oops

Interesting to read some of the early editions of the newspaper this morning.  With the game result still in doubt, you got some very "doom and gloom" analysis about the team’s chances.  Reading the first edition, hard to tell we eventually won the game, lowered our magic number to 9 and took the division lead over the Indians back to 3 1/2.

A Few Items …

Prior to the game, Tim Raines was a guest on Comcast Sport Nets Chicago Tribune Tonight show.  During the live interview, Mark Buehrle (yes, the same guy who was starting the game) snuck out and hit Raines in the face with a shaving cream pie.  Raines then went into the clubhouse and pretended to pummel Buehrle.Ozzieguillenbaseballcard

The clubhouse was in stiches before the game when a video of Ozzie, Harold, Tim, Joey and Walk as players was put on the big screen television.  Guys critiqued their coaches and laughed at the physiques.  Ozzie looked like he was 12 years old and weighed 120 pounds.

Finally, as the team came off the field after Joe Crede’s game-winning home run, Aaron Rowand was heard to say … "I love Joe Crede."  (Note: quote was a little cleaned up for public consumption).

Despite what you may have read or heard, guys seem very loose … and it is not pretend (at least as far as I can tell).  I actually spent five minutes this morning trying to figure out how you can pretend to be loose (or how an observer can determine when guys are pretending) but then I figured that was a waste of time.

Another thing to note:  Prior to yesterday’s game, Ozzie commented that he had received 542 emails after Monday’s game and NEARLY ALL were positive.  He opened one negative one to see if he could learn anything about his team.  In some publications, this was reported that the emails from fans were overwhelmingly negative.  Not true.  Ozzie said just the opposite.

Let’s put another nail in the Cleveland coffin tonite !!

GO SOX!!! TAKE THIS GAME!!!

Oh man! I have to miss tonight’s game to visit my dad in the hospital. I caught the end of last night’s game (way to fricking go, Joe Crede!) and brought my dad the newspapers (late editions) this morning. His eyes just lit up when he got to see the papers and read about his winning team. The picture on the back of the Sun Times was great!

The Sox will win tonight…I don’t know how anyone could come off of a game like yesterday and not be revved up. They’re gonna play hard.

If anyone wants to sit in my two seats for tonight, they’re section 159, 4th row in the middle. Anyone going to the game probably won’t read this by now anyway, since it’s quarter after 6 already. Oh, well.

Hope to be back at the park tomorrow night to watch the Sox defeat the Twinkies.

Go Sox! Go Garland!

i am nervous about these next 7 games. the sox have been the talk around campus because i live in braves territory and all i talk about is the chi sox. i am from chitown and when i saw them win last night, i cried. and when they take all with these last few games, i will cry some more. when they take the world series by storm, i will cry for a long time. this is the year of the chi sox and all i can say is this: GO SOX!!! and good luck tonight!

HEY GUYS I AM HAPPY THAT ALL THE FANS ARE FEELING POSITIVE, I AM SO HAPPY FOR US, AND HOPEFULLY WE WILL WIN TONIGHT, IT WAS A GREAT GAME LAST NIGHT VERY GOOD GAME… IT WAS CREDE’S NIGHT,, THE GUYS WERE GREAT…..WELL I AM LOOKING FORWARD, AND HEY ANATASIA IF U STILL HAVE THE TIX JUST EMAIL ME,, I MIGHT BE ABLE TO GO NOW…THX,,,,WELL WE SHOUD SAY OR MAYBE YELL ,,GO SOX, GO SOX, GO SOX….WE LOVE U WHITE SOX…MANAR ALBAROUDI

I am really excited about tonights game and would love to watch it, except for the fact on my screen, Direct TV is telling me it is having technical difficulties. Of course all the other stations I don’t want to watch are working just fine. Ugh!

Looks like I will be listening to Rooney & Farmer.

Go Sox

Apparently we who are poor and live too far away to attend the game have been blacked out tonight by the television gods. Gee, as a new Sox fan….this is a real deal killer for me. I hope they lose for doing such a stupid thing like blacking out this important game!

Alright, Alright..You know I am going a little out of my realm here. I am coming on to a white sox page just to give a little chatter. ruffle a few feathers if you know what i’m saying. I am a die hard indians fan currently serving here in Iraq. The game is currently on with the indians leading 1-0. Regardless of the outcome of this whole situation. I would just like to say it’s been great to be a baseball fan this year and live the excitement of September Baseball. May the SOX RIP.

Go Tribe! Bring the Central Back where it belongs..

where do I start..First eldy..don’t hope the team loses because of a marketing/broadcast issue…that’s just wrong…thing of the players! Trained…if you come back, I’m torn between thanking you for serving for our country and telling you to go do unnatural things to yourself =) coming here to cause grief…who has that kind of energy…not I.. GO SOX!!!

Your anger is misplaced, because it seems the Baseball Gods, AKA Comcast, don’t like that other Chicago team either, because they are also not on the air right now.

As far as the Tribe fan, bad taste is bad taste, no matter where in the world you happen to be. But that said, stay safe.

The fact that it is the eighth inning and Comcast still hasn’t fixed the problem is a disgrace.

How did that many people get Ozzie’s email address? BTW, what is his email address? Maybe one day I’d like to send him an email.

My 1st game as a northwest suburb kid & Dad was a White Sox Game (back in the red days). Fireworks brought me back. This October will change the leaves from green to black.
