1. If Joe Flacco can play Johnny Unitas, then ...
|Tracy Swartz: ... this will be an episode of "The Jocking Dead."|
|Julie DiCaro: ... I can play Christina Hendricks (Note: I can't play Christina Hendricks.)|
|Soxman: ... Brock Lesnar can play Brian Urlacher. Sorry, I'm still in Wrestlemania withdrawal.|
|Brad Zibung: ... I can play Brett Favre. I suggest none of my friends open any text messages from me for a while.|
|Ernest Wilkins: ... Tracy can play Rebecca Lobo in the `95 UConn women's hoops biopic.|
2. What would you consider a successful 10-game road trip for the White Sox?
|Tracy Swartz: In 10s play.|
|Julie DiCaro: If they can have a better than 10-to-1 strikeout/walk ratio, they'll be way ahead of the Cubs.|
|Soxman: Winning is expected. Now they'd really #MakeAnImpact if they balance the budget while in D.C.|
|Brad Zibung: I'd say "not returning," but that's too easy and most of Chicago sadly wouldn't notice.|
|Ernest Wilkins: 20-0. This is a bad time to mention that I failed math, isn't it?|
3. Who was snubbed from the basketball Hall of Fame selections?
|Tracy Swartz: Vlade Divac, but he'd probably pass on the chance.|
|Julie DiCaro: Muggsy Bogues.|
|Soxman: It's a tie between Gary Payton's glove and Jerry Tarkanian's gnawed on towel.|
|Brad Zibung: Basketball has a hall of fame? What will they think of next, a league that pays people millions of dollars to play it? Crazy!|
|Ernest Wilkins: Two words: ARTIS GILMORE. Get him in there!|
4. Joakim Noah has had "a little setback." What's that mean?
|Tracy Swartz: He didn't get off on the right foot.|
|Julie DiCaro: He has gangrene in his foot and he'll be back in 2015.|
|Soxman: Ask Derrick Rose. Although I don't think he's ready for 5 on 5 action yet.|
|Brad Zibung: It's nothing to be concerned about. Just like being "a little pregnant."|
|Ernest Wilkins: It's a new post move, be calm.|
5. What did Paul Konerko say to Frank Thomas when he passed him on the Sox's all-time hit list?
|Tracy Swartz: "That's gotta 'Hurt.' "|
|Julie DiCaro: "Smell ya later."|
|Soxman: "Big Hurt Beer is on me, dude."|
|Brad Zibung: Nothing. No one ever talks to Frank Thomas. Ever.|
|Ernest Wilkins: The concept of these two even speaking has me about to giggle like Rashida Jones came to the office.|
