Just tell us in white font so if we want to see it we can scroll over it to read.

I really don't want to have to watch the Cubs. Nah I'm just kidding about that, but I wont be home.

A good friend of mine (the singer in my band) raised the most money for his High School fundraiser and the prize was throwing out the first pitch at today's game....

Trick is...he is a big time Sox fan...and he is going to make a scene...hopefully he doesn't chicken out....

Your friend, if he raises the spectacle I hope he does, is living out one of my dreams.

Make us proud out there, Mr. Fundraising Song Man.

Prediction: he chickens out because I guarantee they warn against this kind of stuff to anyone, and he'll be afraid because he's a kid, when in reality there are zero repercussions.

I really, really hope I am wrong, though, because I have *always* wanted to do something like this.

Text him now and tell him the adults say he has no issues.

Yeah, let him know that hard time in Cubbie Jail isn't really something you have to answer to future employers for.

From the NW Side? What high school?

EDIT: It's got to be St. Patrick, the annual trip to Wrigley is today (When I was there, we did it in the fall :geezer:).

Here's a fellow Shamrock & Sox fan pulling for him. :cool:

I just logged in to my satellite provider to put the game on record.

Do they usually broadcast the first pitch?

Noooo...never. Never any Cubs fans or staff here. They don't care about the White Sox, remember ?

I have a hard, hard time believing:

1. Doing something like taking off the Cubs jersey to reveal a Sox jersey would get one thrown in ballpark jail.

2. Any such thing outside of a disorderly conduct arrest and conviction would ever have to be reported to a future employer.

Come on.

I'm fairly certain there have been others that have gone out to the mound at Wrigley to throw out the first pitch and taken off their jacket/jersey to reveal some sort of Sox shirt underneath.

The best was Bob Uecker's 7th inning stretch.

I think you may have misread my post, as I was being totally serious - I can't think of anything security at Wrigley could do about a guy being a jerk more serious than kicking him out of the ballpark, something I suspect a lot of Sox fans would wear as a point of pride. Bad taste, as they say, is not against the law.

Q: "Have you ever been convicted or entered a guilty plea for any felony?"
A: "No, but one time I gave the finger to section 130 at Wrigley Field and spent the afternoon in Lakeview Lockup."

That said, I have a few (Cub fan) friends who've been in the Cubbie Clink, and all have reported it as being a pretty entertaining time.

Now, I feel like an idiot. I should do some work instead of spending my time on WSI! Apologies for my misreading.
