    @ NWO: Yeah, those uniforms (with the black shorts) made the Sox look like a men’s softball team. They continued with that look in 1977, but I believe that’s as far as it went.

    Venice’s QB Luca Diamont is now ready to play again, after sitting-out last season with a skull fracture. The injury was sustained from falling out of a golf cart. Predictably, our state legislators are crafting a bill that would limit cart usage to 6 holes, and require sobriety testing after a double-bogey. Other aspects of golf are being scrutinized to see if the sport can be made safer.

    Those White Sox uniforms were the worst.
