Seriously ... if we showed up in a Sox bar, I mean a real Sox bar in the Bridgewater neighborhood, we would not be allowed in or tossed. But quite honestly, I'm not that stupid, either. But we could get away with it in my neighborhood place, which is only southloop ... not far enough south.


Agreed, zero chance I would even try to walk into a South Side Sox bar and cheer for the Twins. Even if it worked, it wouldn't be fun.

I found out I get WGN in HD, so I don't have to stream the game on my laptop and it's in HD! Go Twins!
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

There all on Lake Shore Drive or the Kennedy Expressway... The Dan Ryan.... Eisenhower... Reagan.

They actually left for today's game on Sunday.

Mauer breaks his 10 groundouts in 10 official at-bats streak by striking out in the first! Way to go, Mauer!

I've been watching the Sox broadcasts for all of the games .... much easier on my ears.

And yeah, Willingham. C'mon CC

I get WGN too! Maybe that'll change the luck, as Willingham gets a hit.

Then they are not quite as bright as those who actually made it there on time by taking public transportation.

You know you've achieved when you mentioned in the same breath as Ira Flagstead

Miss part of the 1st inning and I have to catch up on 60+ posts? Starting the season strong!

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

The Flagstead Estate was upset when Cecil Cooper reached it. I assume they are more resigned to it now.
