    RIP Minnie Minoso

    Mr. White Sox. What a great dude. Just one of those people who loved life. Always had the time to say hello and tell a story. Take care Minnie! Thanks for the smiles and memories.

    2008 Blackout Game

    Always wondered about the choice of the home whites over the black alternates for this game.

    Most memorable game I have ever attended. What a night! I'll be telling my grand kids about that one.

    Paul Konerko Appreciation Thread

    I'm wondering the significance of turning one switch off and one on during the end of that video. Then, ultimately turning the second switch off. Sunday, the light will finally be turned off. Thanks Paulie! From age 12 to 27, it was a pleasure and an honor to watch you. White Sox legend. White Sox for life.
  7. Hey guys. I thought I'd try this again. I am trying to hunt down some of the more rare bobbles. I figure this would be a good place to start. Most of these were Fantasy Camp and Sox Fest Giveaways.

    If the Sox Knock Buehrle Around Tonight...

    Mark deserves the standing ovation he will get tonight. Guy is a White Sox legend. Frank Thomas night to boot. Excited to be in the stands. Win or lose, it should be a fun time tonight. $9 tickets in the corners, this is the best bargain of the weekend.

    White Sox Winner????

    A win? I forgot what this feels like. I don't know what to do with my hands.

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Jun 13, 2014 -> 10:02 AM) Attendance is going to be bad because season ticket sales are probably as low as they have been this century. With dynamic pricing, walk up sales are usually pretty weak. I read an article a couple years ago or so ago which stated the Sox were expecting a walk up of around 2500 for some game (this is when they were at least decent) and it was by far the highest walk up of the season. I remember half price Monday and Tuesdays with the Pepsi can. The lines at the ticket windows were huge. Those days are OVA! You get some same day sale with the K-Zone for Sale. But that is only when he starts.They should come up with a section for Abreu, for a daily thing. Maybe the back half of the bleachers or something, see if he can reach them. That would help day of game sales, but the fruits of this season attendance wise, if it winds up being successful, won't really be felt until next season when a few more season ticket plans are sold. The K-Zone deal is a pretty cool gimmick. I've seen the section near full in the two Sale starts I have attended. With that said, it's 980 seats or something. This really has very little impact on the overall attendance. If say, half of those fans were planning on attending the game anyway, what are we talking about here? 400-500 attendance bump per Sale start? Small potatoes.
  14. Hi guys, I am looking for a few White Sox bobbleheads to complete my collection.

    Xfinity Zone to open up at the Cell

    Meh. Whatever. That video game cage was empty 75% of the time I walked by it last season anyways. At least this is something people may use.

    '83 unis are back this year

    QUOTE (Thad Bosley @ Feb 8, 2014 -> 11:36 AM) Hmmm...well, it was one thing to bring those red, white, and blue unis back in '13 to commemorate the '83 team. It's quite another to bring the same uni back in '14 that could even remotely remind us of that dreadful '84 season. Good lord, one of the most disappointing seasons certainly in my lifetime! At least we got a good draft pick out of it. 1985 #5 pick: heralded catcher Kurt Brown... one pick ahead of Barry Bonds.

    Who's going to Cooperstown

    Can anyone suggest lodging? I've been surfing hotels and B&B's this morning and have yet to find an available room for that weekend.
