Please White Sox

Beat the freakin Twins tonight! I know I've not always had the most confidence in you this year but please, Ozzie please keep Junior out of the lineup. This is the game of your life John Danks go out there and give it to them! Then on to Tampa to dispense with the Rays!

Way to go Kyle

From one Boilermaker to another good job, I was excited to see you come out throwing in the first quarter and go to Greg Olsen in the first quarter. You reminded me of your days in the Black and Old Gold. I think last nights performance went a long way to silence the critics. Maybe you can make your way to the South Side and let some of your luck rub off on the beloved White Sox.

It's a tragedy for me to see the dream is over 2

I need to find another song lyric to express myself but damn White Sox! I really think if they miss the playoffs Ozzie will be gone and that is a shame. He needed help at the trade deadline and who do we get? The ghost of Ken Griffey jr sad. At least the Cubs will be in the playoffs next week.

What the hell are you guys doing??????????

WTF are you doing? Why is Junior in center field in the Metrodome? Javy Vasquez sucks! If we continue like this we deserve to go home next week.

80's Song of the Week.

I LOVE 80's music! Yes that is sad I will admit it. However I decided that I was going to start having a song of the week and for the inaugural song we have Milli Vanilli! They are the only band who's lyrics have been the title of a post on this blog so I felt I owed it to them, I actually own/owned this album and I admit to liking them as well.

I am really growing tired of politics.

I follow politics, not quite fanatical but not casually either; however I am growing tired of this presidential election and it's political rhetoric. It has been going on for the better part of two years and I am burned out. I have some conservative beliefs on some issues and more liberal on other issues. I am a registered Independent and I plan to stay this way. Why do you ask? Because the far right scares me, we've seen our civil liberties tromped on in the name of keeping us safe, we are spending a ton of money in Iraq not only for the war but to contractors who have little to no regard for the people of that country. My friend Mike who has worked in Iraq and he had nothing positive to say about the likes of Blackwater. However the left scares me too. It is not the governments job to be a safety net for people or provide every need to them and that we should defer issues of security to a world body. I am basically a man without a party. I feel like burying my head in the sand and pull it out Wednesday November 5th.

I was wrong about the Bears

I was really surprised by the outcome of this game. Peyton Manning was definitely off this week and I'll hand it to the Bears they looked pretty good. I refuse to go as far and say this made up for the Super Bowl, that is idiotic the goal of every season it to win the Super Bowl. This week we go up against the Carolina Panthers, Steve Smith is out serving a suspension which is good because he torched us in the 2005 Playoffs. I am going to go with the Bears by 7.

On to baseball; the Cubs are in a slump. Harden looked good last night however I am wondering how much confidence Lou has in the bullpen. However even with the Cubs losing the Brewers are not helping themselves. I believe that after the Houston series the Cubs host the Brewers so it could get interesting. The Sox need to get it in gear, they have a couple of big series coming up and Contreras is still on the shelf, Konerko is down, Quentin is down too and the Twins are not going away. I hate to say it but the south siders luck may have run out

Football season starts!

This Sunday night on national TV the Bears open up against their Super Bowl rival the Indianapolis Colts! I have not seen a ton of the Bears in the preseason but what I did see I was happy with. However they are going up against Peyton Manning, who happens to be my oldest daughters favorite player and team. So much so that our puppy is named after him. The Colts are also her Madden team as well when we play. I hope that the Bears come out run the ball, protect Orton so he has time to let the play develop and make some plays. I am tired of hearing about Kyle Orton the game manager, when he was at our fair alma mater he was more of a gunslinger. I want to see him go out and spread the field, at least until Manning hits the field and destroys our defense. I hate to do this but my pick is Indianapolis by 14.

Cubs lose four in a row

Is it time to worry? They've dropped four and Big Z is going to see the doctor today. This makes you wonder about his health for the playoffs not to mention that Rich Harden has been pushed back a start. What does this do for your World Series aspirations? Right now the Brewers lead the wild card and Arizona leads the NL West, do you want to face the D-Backs is a short series? Remember last year? Brandon Webb, Dan Haren and Randy Johnson could be hell in the three of five especially since the Cubs have never beat Johnson.

Now Sox fans you are not exempt from criticism here. All Star third baseman Joe Crede had to leave the game and your MVP candidate Carlos Quentin is sitting with a sore forearm and believe it or not Junior has a sore back! We need to win these games because the Twins are on a hell of a road trip that could make or break them. Wake up and play!
