    80 DEGREES.  If they can't put 26-28,000 asses in the seats tonight with no Hawks competition, they are more irrelevant than I thought.  2,000 morons should walk up just to taunt Cub Fans alone.
    Of course people maybe glued to the N.F.L. draft.

    They just barely made it...26,300.

    I will be one of about 10,000 tonight.

    Once again I am touched by your concerns about the privately owned company known as the Chicago White Sox. I sure hope they have enough money to pay the electric bill for the month.

    Frank, my point is are the Sox relevant here?  Recent poll has them holding off the Fire in popularity here and "solid" in the 5th most popular pro team in town position.
    This team won a World Series and quickly returned to their usual stature as the franchise the town forgets.
    You are correct.  It is a BUSINESS.  I am no longer 12 years old.  If this team eventually moves or is contracted by M.L.B., I won't lose sleep.  It is what it is.
    I've enjoyed the Fanboy meetings where the "HISTORIAN" has stated that basically the Sox are ENTITLED to 2.5 million paying customers per season simply because they exist.
    The Prez then waxes poetic about the days when the Sox were the most popular baseball team in town for an extended period....back when my Dad drove a STUDEBAKER!!!

    Does the Sox relevancy really matter? Why do you care what Historian or the Prez think? Both of them have nothing else in their lives. You meanwhile are enjoying retirement after a career that gave you enough stories to tell at a bar for years before you have to go into reruns. If the Sox give you a minute of fun then they are relevant to the person you most care about, you. Those two sad sacks only have TV dinners to look forward to when they go home. Plus when you get onto this subject you sound a lot like a cousin of Norm.

    True enough.


    Most of the guys at those meetings are great.  FUN.


    I am just amazed at the lunatic fringe.  THE WHITE SOX ARE MY LIFE element.  That is NO LIFE.


    The way I see it is when Reinsdorf passes on, the team is likely gone.  The State will gladly let them out of that ridiculous lease.
