Hawk Harrelson Takes To MLB Network To Complain About Hemorrhoids

Chicago White Sox announcer Hawk Harrelson turned up on Chris "Mad Dog" Russo's MLB Network show High Heat yesterday, and things went pretty much exactly as you'd expect, with lots of talk about Carl Yastrzemski, Tony La Russa, and this year's purportedly dangerous White Sox squad. There was also the following, one of… »4/25/14 11:08am4/25/14 11:08am

Comcast SportsNet's White Sox Intro Video Is One Of The Worst Things Ever Put On Television And Possibly Harmful To Your Health

Most discerning baseball fans go out of their way to avoid local broadcasts of the Chicago White Sox. After all, that's where you find Ken “Hawk” Harrelson, and to voluntarily listen to Hawk is to willingly subject yourself to the threat of severe brain damage. Seriously, you'd be better off huffing Chinese diesel… »4/01/13 5:30pm4/01/13 5:30pm

Science! Proves That Hawk Harrelson Is More Biased Than Every Other AL Broadcaster Combined

Today is probably a good day for the other sports to drop bad news. Maybe announce some NCAA sanctions, or failed steroid tests. Everything non-scabby is completely under the radar, so it would have been lucky timing for the White Sox broadcasting team to be selected as far and away the biggest homers in all of… »9/25/12 3:40pm9/25/12 3:40pm

Lance Barrett Tosses A.J. Pierzynski And Robin Ventura, Shameless Homer Hawk Harrelson Goes Off Again

"Lance Barrett's just stunk the joint up, is all he's done, that's all he's done...he's terrible." Hawk, you might recall, got into a bit of a pickle when he referred to umpire Mark Wegner as "brutal" and "totally absurd" while questioning his baseball knowledge. He got a stern talking to from Bud Selig and everyone… »8/26/12 10:00am8/26/12 10:00am

Walk-Off Home Run From Cody Ross Leaves Hawk Harrelson Silent For Over A Minute

Noted blatherer Hawk Harrelson is really only at a loss for words when the White Sox managed to inexplicably blow a lead late in the game and lose. For example, maybe Chicago is playing at Fenway and about to pull off an efficient 1-0 win thanks to eight solid innings from starting pitcher Jose Quintana. Then, let's… »7/19/12 10:57pm7/19/12 10:57pm

Bud Selig Gives Hawk Harrelson A Stern Talking-To For Being An Obnoxious Homer

Upset with a one-sided beanball war that resulted in only a White Sox player getting ejected, broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson completely lost his mind. It was more of the sort of rah-rah-Sox stuff we've all come to expect from Harrelson, but there was extraordinary vehemence and venom in this particular outburst, and… »6/01/12 12:15pm6/01/12 12:15pm

Ken "Hawk" Harrelson Melts Down After White Sox Pitcher Ejected For Throwing Behind A Batter

This week's Rays-White Sox series in St. Petersburg has been contentious after Chicago catcher A.J. Pierzynski's suspicious slide yesterday led to him being plunked by Rays pitcher Alex Cobb today. When Jose Quintana attempted to return the favor—or perhaps just send another message—to Tampa Bay's Ben Zobrist later… »5/30/12 2:43pm5/30/12 2:43pm

Hawk Harrelson Went Silent For 63 Seconds After Jhonny Peralta's Walk-Off Home Run Beat The White Sox Last Night

The good folks at Awful Announcing have the video from the Tigers' walk-off win over Hawk's beloved White Sox last night. For 63 seconds (I counted) beginning moments before the ball goes over the wall, there is pure silence from the Chicago White Sox feed. The last thing we hear is the ball was hit deep into… »5/05/12 11:20am5/05/12 11:20am
