    Hawk Cutting Back!!!

    Post by Harry Caray on Mon Oct 05, 2015 7:17 pm

    81 ROAD GAMES.


    Even Hawk does not want to go to THE CELL!!!!!


    Hawk says he is tired of driving.


    1.  HIRE A DRIVER!!


    2.  Granger, Indiana is not a suburb of Chicago!!  Way to live in a DIFFERENT TIME ZONE for the home games!!!

    Why the hell this old man insists on commuting back and forth from Granger to the Cell is hard to fathom. I find it hard to believe that he's making the two hour drive back home after the Sox complete one of their 4 hour marathon night games. Since he lives in the Eastern Time Zone I figure he doesn't get home until 2-3 am EST only to have to turn right around and do it all over again the next day. Even with the best of weather conditions and reasonable traffic you're talking minimum 4 hours on the road every day during a home stand. 

    Fucking crazy.

    I guess he felt Indianapolis, Green Bay or Ann Arbor were a bit TOO far.

    Between the pay and getting to announce my lifelong favorite team, I'd trade places with him in a moment.  Fucking crazy?  Maybe.  Still...I'd do it.

    Did the goof ever think of getting a flat near the ballpark (or a downtown condo), stay there on homestands, and NOT go on the road? Was that too logical?

    All I'm saying is that home games would make more sense than flying across the country for the shit show.

    The HAWK moved to Indiana because every sane person that can is getting the hell out of Illinois.

    Only three things keeping the KARK here
    1) My elderly father and elderly God mother
    2) My inlaw's family business which the Mrs. is a key member
    3) My beloved Chicago White Sox

    BTW, Stan can give a rat's behind about going to the Cell.  With any luck, I'll be moving to Nashville within 3 years

    Not necessarily, Kevin.  If this is going to be his last rodeo, might as well make all the stops on the road.


    Obviously he knows all kinds of people in all the Cities.  This could be a FAREWELL TOUR.


    FUCK THE CELL.


    What, he needs dorks waving at him?  THE CELL is a MORGUE.


    Go on the road and have FUN!!

    Even the sox spokesperson doesn't live in the city or have easy park access. More positive PR. Geez

    True.  And I don't know anything about any health issues or other issues the guy might have.

    Being affiliated with the White Sox means the guy has issues.

    I think he is just sick and tired. My guess is that if he had any significant health issues, he wouldn't be flying across the country for 5 months.

    It was funny Saturday when Hawk wasn't there with Steve Stone saying that Hawk played with Hank Greenberg.  Greenberg was retired and a GM for the Sox around the time Harrelson broke in with KC.  Even Stone thinks the guy is ancient.  Stone should have asked the Hawkeroo Friday (when Sale was going after Ed Walsh's team strikeout record) how the Hawk batted again Walsh. 

    lol!

    Maybe Reinsdorf can have a Hawk Harrelson Day at the end of next season.  The Sox can give him reading glasses, a walker, and hearing aids -- or perhaps a can of corn, a duck snort, and a Kansas City Special. Rolling Eyes

    Maybe a free lifetime pass to the cell. affraid

    He'll have a day, no doubt about that. He'll also have an election to the HOF, media wing, sometime in the near future.
