Pale Hose

From BR Bullpen

The Pale Hose is a nickname for the Chicago White Sox that has been used since the 1910s. The pale hose is a play on white (pale) and socks (hose). Even now that the name is quite anachronistic, it is still used frequently in print and on television when describing the White Sox. Oddly, there is no equivalent term for the Boston Red Sox.
