Flash poll: Flashbacks

Where does it go from here? Is it down to the lake, I fear?

Sun Worshipper: Eddie Stanky’s stellar managing job in 1967 couldn’t buy him the full 1968 season.

Over the weekend, I’d like to solicit a bit of feedback from SSS on the Chicago White Sox Flashback anniversary series.

The stories are a bit of a bear to do in-season, and taking over here in February, about a week before pitchers and catchers reported, didn’t leave a lot of offseason prep time.

There will be one or two really cool Flashbacks series beginning this offseason. But for now, given the time put in and the relative lack of readership/interest in the pieces, I’d like to get an idea of which season(s) stand out to you.

As always, expand your thoughts in the comments as desired.

So far we’ve done 1918, 1958, 1968 and 2008, if you need to refresh yourself.


Which Flashback would you like to see continue this season?

    All of them, this White Sox season is too depressing and I need something to distract me.

    No Flashbacks; nostalgia and history are for chumps.
