Good evening and a Happy Friday Will’s Fifth Quarter Special fans! This is host and creator Will Farlow here bringing you the newest Will’s Weekly Sports Quote. This is the first Will’s Weekly Sports Quote in written form in the show’s history. The Chicago White Sox fans witnessed a historical moment in the franchise of the team at 35th and Shields. Before the introduction of new general manager Chris Getz, team owner and chairman Jerry Reinsdorf spoke to the public. Which leads us as the mics and recorders of media officials go off. Jerry, Chris and staff leave the room maybe to talk to La Russa or team loyalty. Here comes in the fifth quarter moment, your newest Wills Weekly Sports Quote!
Chuck Garfien of NBC Sports Chicago has quoted Jerry Reinsdorf saying this during his press conference moment with the media.
“ The 2023 season was my 43rd season in baseball. It was absolutely the worst season I’ve ever been through. It was a nightmare. Embarrassing. Disgusting. All the bad words you can think of is the way I feel about the 2023 season. It was just awful.”
Let’s dissect this significant quote here , Will’s Fifth Quarter Special fans!
The quote of Reinsdorf shows a new side of his view of the season most White Sox fans are trying to forget. Jerry shows in his words his passion for the game of baseball which is a similar passion to the average White Sox fan. Jerry is 87 years old guys, and let’s be honest to ourselves he wants more World Series wins. Reinsdorf isn’t getting any younger hence the urgency to change the front office after the team’s struggles. This is a great Will’s Weekly Sports Quote as it shows the average angry fan the view of the team owner who seems to want the same thing. Jerry wants this team to be better to the degree that he talked to the people today. Reinsdorf rarely speaks to the media , and I hope today shows he should more often. I feel as a fan of this team more optimistic then I was after hearing this quote in the press conference. The owner wants to do better for the organization and the fanbase.
Question is how he can prove that to the fans feeling it’s just the same old, loyal Jerry routine today. So in my view this is a special quote for our segment here to show a side of Jerry Reinsdorf fans don’t see often. I’m excited for the segment’s first historic blog post here. Be on the lookout Will’s Fifth Quarter Special fans for future Will’s Weekly Sports Quotes whether episode , live stream, or blog we have you covered. When the fourth quarter buzzer sounds you turn to us for your fifth quarter sports talk. I’m Will Farlow saying so long from this edition of Will’s Weekly Sports Quote.
