Democracy In Action: Election Day!

There are times in every American's life when he is called upon to cast his vote in the most vital of elections. To determine the course of his community, nay, his country, in the years ahead. To forge a new way for future generations. To decide, once and for all, that for which he stands. Today, LOHO, this heady task falls to you. I ask you, dear LOHOers, will you accept this challenge?!?! Over the course of the last...

oh, shut up.

i refuse to cheer for Cole Hamels.

Doc said:

user-pic

and he refuses to cheer for you.

The opening of the post is so beautiful.(sniff) And,wonder of wonders, I can actually view the photos!!!!

HackWilson09 said:

I woke up having come to my senses. I turned my back on the easy money evil Yankees. Even Kerry and Joe can't turn me against...

THE NATIONAL LEAGUE!!!

I'm with the Phillies too. Forget Hamels. Halladay and Oswalt and the best offense in the NL? Fuggedabaddit!

Doc said:

Good call!

flyball said:

user-pic

I used to like the Phillies, but then Philadelphia started winning at things, and now the fans are bothering me more than Boston fans

Put me down for the Rangers.

gravedigger said:

user-pic

I keep saying Rangers... but I also want to consider the Rays. Someone convince me one way or the other.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I'm hoping for Rangers, Rays, or Twinks.

Though it's going to be impossible for me not to cheer for Kerry Wood.

Doc said:

user-pic

Shame on all of you if you pick Twins after what they did to us last year.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

maybe we did it to them? after all, they have won a WS in the last 100 years.

secdelahc said:

user-pic

And perhaps this is the exact reason why we should choose the Yankees. We can heap our negative Cubbie mojo upon them.

sloan peterson said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Well, Cubbiejulie, since no one is waving the flag for Kerry Wood, I will make the sacrifice and root for the Yanks as my AL pick. For the NL it will be the Giants, due to the previously mentioned tick-off LA factor.....

sloan peterson said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Gravedigger, if you pick the Rays, and they win, think of the millions fo $$ One-A-Day vitamins will make from Maddon's commercial....

gravedigger said:

user-pic

i have no idea what that means, so ok, ill go for it.

sloan peterson said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

Maddon advertises One-A- Day man's health vitamins, while in a TB-similar uniform, and in a dugout with players milling around. On the Fox stations you see the ad 3 or 4 times a game....

Reds over the Rangers.

Doc said:

Phillies!

plamorte said:

user-pic

Twinks for me, always been my second team, stepdad from Minny, so the teams been in the family.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Twins are my second team, too, but I do worry about them playing the Yankees right out of the box again, and I want this postseason to last longer than it did last season. Ha.

plamorte said:

user-pic

I will vouch for the Phillis, if only for a photoshop idea that pooped into my head

plamorte said:

user-pic

ha popped I meant, but if good ideas could poop, it'd prob look like a Cubs team

Doc said:

user-pic

if it was something to do with a Phillies fan...then pooped is probably right.

Rooting for Wood and the Yankees here

Welcome to the Dark Side.......

Julie Hammerle said:

user-pic

Go Twins!

HackWilson09 said:

user-pic

I'm confused by all the action for the Twins. What's a twin anyway? Fraternal or identical? What's that got to do with baseball? Like, you share a uterus with somebody for 9 months and suddenly you're in the Bigs?

I can't root for Joe Mauer, Grandpa Thome, and a bunch of other guys, including Matt Capps, who ruined our bullpen plans this year.

secdelahc said:

user-pic

Rangers! Need I remind people of Rich Harden and his glorious butt?!?!

danieldschell said:

user-pic

Before voting for the Rangers, I hadn't stopped to consider a Yankees win meaning a ring for Kerry Wood. Would love to see that, but still sticking with Texas.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

so you're all forsaking Kerry?

I can't believe what I'm seeing.

HackWilson09 said:

user-pic

A vote for Kerry's Yankees is a vote for him to succeed THERE.

That doesn't jibe with our plans of the Yankees turning down his option and allowing him to come back.

My fantasy still involves Kerry Wood throwing the last pitch to BEAT the Yankees at Wrigley Field, some cold, late October evening within the next 6 years.

Dmband said:

user-pic

The twins are going to be one and done! Dont do it!!!

Lets go Giants!!!!

Imagine this. Game 7 NLCS Halladay vs. Lincecum.

Doc said:

PHILLIES!!!!

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

No one wants to comment on Z crashing his car on the way out of Wrigley? Ha.

Doc said:

user-pic

He was told he couldn't hit anyone with his fists anymore. So...

ErnestWilkins said:

user-pic

Braves for these specific reasons:
1: because Bobby Cox could retire on top, and who doesn't like seeing that story?
2: Derrek Lee (you know you miss him)
3: The fact that Jason Heyward making the playoffs as a rookie.
4: The patient fury that is Tommy Hanson on the mound.
5: The "island of misfit players" that is the Braves roster. Includes names like Rick Ankiel, Troy Glaus, and Kyle Farnsworth. ('member him?)
6: If you support San Fra

ErnestWilkins said:

user-pic

#6: Ahem. "If you support San Fran, you support BALCO. There, I said it."

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

shot across the bow.

lol

sloan peterson said:

And Troy Glaus wasn't in the MLB report?

Doc said:

user-pic

Stupid Twins. >:(

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I don't want to live in a world where Matt Murton is holds any kind of a batting title.

Doc said:

user-pic

I'll call the Russian Space Agency and reserve you a seat.

AndCounting said:

user-pic

I voted for the Reds. I want to see him do his postgame press conferences with his 13-year-old son by his side.

Doc said:

user-pic

It was a lot more fun when the 13 year old son was a 4 year old son.

Dmband said:

user-pic

I cant vote more than once? I thought this was Chicago!!! Jeez...

Doc said:

user-pic

You just have to know how to beat the system.

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

Multiple browsers?

Dmband said:

user-pic

Doc-

Im sure I kind find some dead people who'd be more than happy to start a profile and vote :)

Just kidding. I will accept the legitmate results as determined by the people unless of course its the year 2000 again.

Doc said:

user-pic

I don't think the Twins should be allowed to win based off this vote...you need to have a 50% majority to win. The top two team should have a run off. (PHILLIES!!!)

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

hey, if you don't like it, get out there and marshall your troops.

Doc said:

user-pic

My troops consist of 2 dogs and a toddler.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

what are you talking about? you have an entire blog at your disposal. twitter. facebook friends.

Doc said:

user-pic

you underestimate the influence I have over the people who "friend" me...it's more out of pitty that they follow me.

Teebob2000 said:

I agree with whatshisname.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I come back from lunch and the Rangers and Phillies are surging. Hmmm.

Doc said:

user-pic

actually...it's not me...believe it or not.

sloan peterson said:

CN keeps kicking me out!! It's a plot, I say ! A Plot!!

sloan peterson said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

If the Rangers win, I demand a recount!

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Bears just cut Mark Anderson.

(krusty the klown noise) uuuuuhhhhhhhhhhh

Doc said:

user-pic

Yeah...because the defensive line is such a huge problem right now... I'm sure glad they are keeping the offensive line in tact. They've carried this team so far this season.

ELRaythar said:

user-pic

I say that we support not only the winner of the vote, but also Kerry Wood.

ELRaythar said:

user-pic

You know, if the Twins win the vote and are promptly swept, we might have some angry Minnesotans coming after us.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

and rightfully so.

Doc said:

user-pic

Yeah...you live with one.

Teebob2000 said:

user-pic

Phils-Rangers. Rangers take them in 6.

Cubs Fan Report said:

user-pic

If we pick the Reds, is that the equivalent of cutting ourselves? and what does that say about us?

Doc said:

user-pic

It says what we all already know...we're idiots.

berselius said:

user-pic

Whoever made the standings flags - you're wrong. The line starts here http://diapywipey.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/baby-crib.jpg

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

the line for what?

berselius said:

user-pic

To see when "next year is here"

MillsChC said:

user-pic

I vote Braves.

Not because I'm gonna cheer for them or like any of 'em (except for Derrek)...

and I detest their fans (they do a wave every freaking game, and have to rely on the electronic signs to tell them when it's okay to "Make Some Noise")...

but the longer they're in it, then the longer I get to keep seeing live baseball.

So there.

--MGb said:

user-pic

I'd vote, but you left out "Who gives a shit?" and "Blackhawks" so I guess I'll abstain...

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

just pick one.

--MGb said:

user-pic

A vote for one implies I give a crap, which I don't. They can all burn in hell for all I care. IT'd just be 8 less teams the Cubs have to beat next year, or more accurately, 8 les teams beating on the Cubs...

kiwibob said:

user-pic

I went Rays... just because we hexxed the Twins last year and I'm only too sure that will happen a second time.

flyball said:

user-pic

I'm going with the Yankees for these simple reasons

Girardi
Wood
to piss off Boston

also I want to know what its like to cheer for a team like that, just for a bit, for the one everyone loves, or loves to hate, instead of one that peole feel sorry for or shout "Not our rivals" at, you know just for a bit

flyball said:

user-pic

oh goodness, I hit Vote and immediately wanted to take back my answer, the theory is a lot better than the reality

the Rays I guess

gravedigger said:

user-pic

I went with the Rays, too. I dunno, I don't really care I guess.
