  • Blackout for the Playoffs?

    Fans on Twitter called for home playoff games to be blackout games ala the 163rd game in 2008 and the Sox have now agreed and asked fans to dress in black. I admit... I got chills...

    The Chicago White Sox became American League Central Division champions for the first time in 13 years, and the team is asking fans to attend October playoff games dressed ready to win.

        My favorite part of the 163 game was that the Sox actually wore their White pinstripes. The contrast of those against the all-black park was so cool.

          I rank that as my most favorite game ever, over all other games that i have attended over the years, and that includes all the 85 Bears home games and the Blackhawks games in the 60's . that game was just so perfect, and just so damn cool looking . i can't remember much these days, but i sure remember looking around the stadium and just feeling like i'll never see anything like this again . well, i hope it works again, but it only works if it's at night, and everyone does it . anyway, i think it's a great idea.
