Welcome to Southside Showdown, the Chicago White Sox site on the FanSided Sports Network–the #1 sports blogging network on the web.

There are few fan bases as passionate and dedicated to their team as those who support the White Sox. In recent memory, the World Series title of 2005 sticks out as a high point for the organization and with the induction of Frank “Big Hurt” Thomas into the Hall of Fame in 2014, another testament to the club’s place in history will be in place.

There has been a social revolution over the course of the past few years. No longer are newspapers the traditional fashion in which fans receive their news. Whether it is Twitter, Facebook, or various blogs; fans have never been more connected to their favorite sports teams than they are now. There are several reputable White Sox blogs on the web, and the goal for the Southside Showdown staff is to ascend Southside Showdown to the top of the blogosphere.

Following along with the social media revolution, the insightful commentary of the Southside Showdown staff does not end here. To receive direct links to the latest on the White Sox, Major League Baseball, and occasionally Chicago sports; follow Southside Showdown on Twitter or like us on Facebook.
