7:11 pm start time? Why? WTF do those south-side knuckle-dragging idiots need the extra minute for?

07-18-2008, 05:17 PM
These f'heads have beaten us like mules for last eight years. I'd really like to turn that around starting tonight.

07-18-2008, 05:17 PM
Buehrle is gonna kick our ass again. He always does.

07-18-2008, 05:24 PM
**** the Black Sux.

Buehrle is gonna kick our ass again. He always does.

didn't you hear?
we have a new ace.

07-18-2008, 05:57 PM
Let's hope for a good start to the second half. I would consider sweeping the ChiSox in Chicago a good start.

In Greinke we trust.

07-18-2008, 06:05 PM
If we had a rival, wouldn't you say it was the White Sox right now? The Yankees are just some team that no one likes and they havent been a real rival in years, and I've never really cared about the Twins, Tigers, or Indians. However, every time I see anything related to that team from whatever hellhole they were spawned from in the windy city, dark thoughts percolate in my mad little mind.

Just back from the game.
The Butler homer was smashed.

Couple pic's from my Razr

07-19-2008, 12:25 AM
Butler NEEDED that homerun for a bit of positive reflection. I hope he has a good second half.
