The poor White Sox. The ugly step-sister that never gets attention. The team that yes, does have one more title than us in the last century, but has only ranked in the top half of AL attendence 4 times in the last 21 seasons.

Therefore, the Sox have always had to rely on some catchy marketing slogans like; Good Guys Wear Black, or last year's All In. The 2012 Chicago White Sox slogan: Appreciate the Game.

What? Are you serious? At first I interpreted this like "Shut up and appreciate the game!" or "F#$k You! We have had high salaries lately and you still don't come". A more accurate interpretation is probably just to be as vague and boring as possible. So, what could the White Sox have come up with that would be similar to the bold statement that is Appreciate the Game? Here are some ideas:

All of these should be preceeded by saying

"White Sox Baseball.....

-Two Teams Playing
-The Grass is Green
-It is a Game
-Batters, Pitchers and Fielders
-Baseball Has Rules
-Games Are Nine Innings, Unless Extra Innings Are Needed or The Game is Sortened by Rain, in Which Case We Play Five
-A Ball Will be In Play
-Men Will Be Running and Moving

Good Luck with that Mr. Reinsdorf and Kenny Williams.

One of my favorite tee shirts:
US Cellular Field: Where the drive-bys outnumber the line drives.
Peg: Oh Al! Did you miss me?

Come for the baseball, stay to see if a tweaker and his kid will assault the other team's elderly 3rd base coach!

Is there any truth to the rumor that Reinsdorf is considering opening a Walmart in the parking lot to draw more of their fans?
Please don't feed the psychos.

Welcome o the Cell, we make East St. Louis look good.

Does anyone one know if East St. Louis is still one of the worst cities in America. I know they had major problems 5-10 years ago but they might have fixed a few problems.
