After 109 games, the 1970 Sox were 38-71. Sweet Lou went 4 for 5 as the Royals, in their 2nd season of existence, beat the Sox 7-2 in game #109. Attendance at Comiskey.....er "White Sox Park" was 3,587!

We're only 2 games back! I don't know whether to scream, laugh, or cry.

....at least the fans in 1970 had Nancy Faust.

I actually enjoyed watching the '89 Sox. Unlike this year's team, they had an exciting core of young talent.

What about the 2011 White Sox? While not as bad as this year's team, that team quit just about every time they trailed in a game and had a manager who spent the season with one foot on a plane to Miami. They were pretty unlikeable/unwatchable.

Two unlikeable, unwatchable teams in the last 3 seasons - wow! Why won't Sox fans support their team? The only explanation I can think of is a lousy fan base.
