As another baseball season in Chicago draws to a close, fans are left wondering, “What the fuck was that?”
Day Old Pole/White Sox Eulogy
Ah, I like our confidence. Everyone said neither. Oh, and by the way, three people voted. Three fucking people! I quit.
Since no one reads this anyway, and I am pretty bored, I might as well ramble about the end of the Sox season.
It is of course disappointed to see your team lose, but if I were to think logically about it, the Rays are just a better team. I would have liked to see a healthy White Sox lineup – Crede, Quentin, Linebrink, Contreras – but I guess that’s life. There is one school of thought that says that if you don’t win the World Series, your season is a failure. And in a way that is true, but that is very black and white, and in life, there are shades of gray. So, that being said, seeing as no one expected anything from the Sox this year, I’d say winning their division and giving us five extra games to drink and hang out with friends would qualify their season as a success.
The last week is complete microcosm of their season. For three games they can be totally fun to watch and look like a great team, and for three games they can be horribly frustrating and miserable to watch.
So, it was a fun season, but what taints the season is the fact that I don’t know where they go from here. They have some parts to build on, but they also have a lot of work to do. If you bring this exact team back next year, they will likely suck as badly as everyone thought they would in ‘08.
Yes, I just typed that last paragraph so I could use the word taint. It makes me giggle after all these years.
What 2 Watch
Chuck – Cause they might play Huey Lewis
How I Met Your Mother – Because NPH is a national hero
MNF – Are you ready for some Hochuli?
Good Dick – Because I’m not mature enough to resist
The finals are set, BJ vs. JB. It’s like Tomax and Xamot, but not really.
Our top two seeds barely escaped their competition, both posting 70-60 victories. Our high score for the week was actually Mookie, well done. Too bad it counts for nothing!
It’s all on BJ to take down the dyansty of JB. Former roommates, current lovers, fellow short-sometimes bearded men duke it out for the ultimate prize in Wall Lounging. Shall we try to do this live? Losers, feel free to contact me with final quiz ideas. I have nothing, as usual.
I leave you on a happy note.
