I was there tonight as well and it was absolutely amazing. I hope they continue the blackout thing for the rest of the playoffs.

Nice pictures. So you were in upper right field. What was going on around the 2nd or 3rd inning that lead to the loud "**** you" chant? I could see a couple Twins fans with a sign, but that's all I could manage to see.

The black out works so much better with these green seats than those old blue ones would have.

Note: I wanted to put this in teal, but it is actually true.

Edit - great pics!

I'm definitely in the second to last picture where OC was spraying the right center stands (my buddgy just missed the cork). I was 5 rows back with my hat backwards but I can't quite make my self out.

I'm the one wearing black.

Does anyone know if there is somewhere we can buy the Blackout shirts they were selling? I was glued to my seat through the game and when I looked afterwards they were (as I figured they would be) not to be found anywhere.

Can anyone tell us if the blackout looked as cool on TV?

I think the blackout thing was a neat idea, but I was there for the clincher in '93 and everyone in the place had long white tube socks that everyone was waving. Now I thought that was totally awesome as it stood out so much better. The black on TV just blended in with the surroundings and didn't really stand out.

I agree...on TV it looked a little strange. I'm sure it looked great at the park.

First off thanks for the pics
Second I thought it looked really intimidating on TV because the crowd was SO loud and it looked like the place was empty
Third that would look SO awesome during the day

I thought the crowd looked great last night on TV... Unfortunately, you couldn't hear the crowd that well but I've been to enough games to know how loud The Cell can get. Would've given anythin to be at that game!

great shots! I know what you mean. its tough to watch the game and remember to grab the camera during a cool moment. I was just worried I wouldnt drop it and lose it during one of my many jumping up and down high fiving moments.

great shots! I know what you mean. its tough to watch the game and remember to grab the camera during a cool moment. I was just worried I wouldnt drop it and lose it during one of my many jumping up and down high fiving moments.

Ha, it's funny you say that about dropping your camera. A girl behind me tried to high five everyone with her fresh $6.50 beer. That didn't turn out so well :redneck

The "blackout" looked fantastic, I hope they continue to promote it for the entire playoff run.

What's really amazing to me is how many people actually followed the black-out instructions. It had to be at least 95%

Great pics guys. I really wish I could have gone :(:

Hell, this type of stuff makes for an amazing atmosphere, and can rattle opposing players who are not so mentally tough. Plus, it looks damn good on TV and gives the viewer a positive impression of the stadium/fanbase. If the Illini/many other college teams can do this for every game, I hope the Sox can as well. It certainly brings the fans together, which only helps the excellent atmosphere that we all experienced last night.

While awesome it would not be effective for 162 games I like the idea for using it during playoffs and elimination games....

the only thing I would have added to make blackout night even better was two very large signs drapped over the sides of US Cellular. One facing the parking lot and one facing the Ryan. With Whitesox blackout with the sox logo on it. Here is a far fetched idea but a cool one as well and that has the Sox take add space on a CTA bus and make it all black with just a sox logo in a lesser shade of black.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Even most of the people that didn't have a black coat were wearing black underneath.

I thought it looked pretty cool on TV.

It looked great on TV down here, and it sure seemed to work out better for us, than it did for UGA the other night!!

Looks great...now hopefully by next game, everyone has gotten the memo. :D:

Can you imagine how cool a "white-out" would look? After all, we're the White Sox. But I think all the fielders would be losing in the ball in the background of the stands though. :tongue:

i know they suck, but i was tryin to watch the game most of the time. and it was tough with all the stand ups and sit downs. :cool:
i saw you post these on "another forum" (not breaking rule #1 :o )

I had the same problem. Glad it's not just me. I'm always mad that I didn't get more shots, especially during that game. And I was right where Thome was spraying champagne so I had to put the camera away so I didn't get champagne in the lens.

God, what a great night.:D:

Yeah, that was insane! Thanks so much for the pics, I can see My family in our seats!!!!! (I had to work :(:)

It's so funny, 95% of people are wearing black and all you can see is the ushers and the few poops that did not wear black. AMAZING:bandance:

I was on the fan deck as well with my dad, right field side. Good chance I shared random hugs and hi fives with some of you good people! :gulp:

I got SRO so I didn't have a camera since I couldn't go home before the game so I love seeing these pictures, thanks!

Nice pics!

If you look in the upper deck above 1st base, you can see a guy holding a Sox flag. I was 2 rows behind him.

God, what a great night.:D:

I had the issue both you and cbotnyse did. I was trying to keep score, take still shots, and video with my digital camera, all while standing on my seat because I'm 5'2" and couldn't see anything otherwise. :wink: I didn't even score the last out of the ninth because I wanted the video more; I just penciled in the play after I got home.

I got so caught up in the moment when I started videoing the last out that I can be heard cheering and screaming repeatedly on my video. :redface: I hate being heard on camera, but I just got so caught up in the excitement that I didn't know how to curb it.

You're right, it was a fabulous night and one that I'll remember forever.
