In Marks imagination................:p

I'm pretty well versed in White Sox history and I've never heard anything about Looie's father-in-law.

You're correct about the name. If I remember it correctly, it is "The Tree". It may also be the mascot.

Your right about the fact that 90% of the Cardinals World Series wins being last century. It makes sense that a Cubbies fan would being living in the last century. After all 100 years since the Cubs last win is as good a reason as any.

Actually, it's Cardinal fans that constantly bring up what happened last century. Cubbie fans have a tendancy to forget what did and didn't happen last century.

So, tell us how the Cardinals improved from their non-playoff roster of last season? :)

:D

Since 1960. I've had the pleasure to attend ballgames in Sportsman's Park, and both of the Busch Stadiums. From Stan to Albert - Go Redbirds!

I guess the White Sox announcers from that era were wrong, then. But ya' gotta admit, it's a great nickname.

Methinks the years have clouded your recollection. I can't imagine any sox announcer saying Louie was playing on the same team as his father-in-law;)

Would Chita be Looie's Mother-in-law?

I wonder if Llorente's mother taught school.

I remember both radio announcers, Bob Elson and Don Wells, mentioning it.
