White Sox Log

Losing Ugly!

White Sox Record: 7-11
Record with K in Attendance: 3-2

Congrats to the \Twins, who apparently won the division yesterday based on a the celebration after Sunday's victory.
Side note re Twins fans. In the second inning two couples sit down in the row behind me (I was directly behind home plate, Row 18 together with at least 2 scouts). The two buys were Twins fans while the ladies were White Sox fans. One of the guys: "Please pass the ketchup for my hot dogs."  I turn around and yeah, the two guys from Minnesota are eating hot dogs with ketchup. Luckily and rightfully so, they were escorted out of the seats in the next inning when the true seat holders arrived. I am sure that the two idiots from Minnesota (and let me tell you they were idiots) must have been shocked that a black family was even at the ballpark- much less with seats that good!!!

Gavin Floyd with a quality start. Bullpen decides it is okay to walk batters. Donnie Veal probably needs to be sent down to the minors if he can't get lefties out.

Offense continues to disappoint. I could go on, but why even bother at this point

RIP, Roger Ebert

2. Classic Appearance on Letterman

RIP, Roger Ebert!

1. Roger Ebert's Letter to Jay Mariotti after he left the Sun-Times in a very douche-bag fashion:

Dear Jay,
What an ugly way to leave the Sun-Times. It does not speak well for you. Your timing was exquisite. You signed a new contract, waited until days after the newspaper had paid for your trip to Beijing at great cost, and then resigned with a two-word e-mail: "I quit." You saved your explanation for a local television station.
As someone who was working here for 24 years before you arrived, I think you owed us more than that. You owed us decency. The fact that you saved your attack for TV only completes our portrait of you as a rat. Newspapers are not dead, Jay, and this paper will not die because you have left. Times are hard in the newspaper business, and for the economy as a whole. Did you only sign on for the luxury cruise?
There's an old saying that you might have come across once or twice on the sports beat: "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." Newspapers are not dead, Jay, because there are still readers who want the whole story, not a sound bite. If you go to work for television, viewers may get a little weary of you shouting at them. You were a great shouter in print, that's for sure, stomping your feet when owners, coaches and players didn't agree with you. It was an entertaining show.
Good luck getting one of your 1,000-word rants on the air. The rest of us are still at work, still putting out the best paper we can. We believe in our profession, and in the future. And we believe in our internet site, which you also whacked as you slithered out the door. I don't know how your column was doing, but we have the most popular sports section in Chicago. The reports and blog entries by our Washington editor Lynn Sweet have become a must-stop for millions of Americans in this election year. After a recent blog entry I wrote about the Beijing Olympics, I woke up at 5 a.m. one morning, when North America was asleep, and found that 40 percent of my 100 most recent visitors had been from China. I don't have any complaints about our web site. So far this month my web page has been visited from almost every country on earth, including one visit from the Vatican City. The Pope, no doubt.
Hope you were doing as well. You have left us, Jay, at a time when the newspaper is once again in the hands of people who love newspapers and love producing them. You managed to stay here through the dark days of the thieves Conrad Black and David Radler. The paper lost millions. Incredibly, we are still paying Black's legal fees. I started here when Marshall Field and Jim Hoge were running the paper. I stayed through the Rupert Murdoch regime. I was asked, "How can you work for a Murdoch paper?" My reply was: "It's not his paper. It's my paper. He only owns it." That's the way I've always felt about the Sun-Times, and I still do. On your way out, don't let the door bang you on the ass.
Your former colleague,
Roger Ebert

Happy Birthday, HM!!
