I did see him at the game (on the TV). He was sportin' a White Sox hat.

Not only did I see him, as I was heading one way on the concourse, an entourage of Sox Security was coming towards me. As we got closer to each other, I saw that it was Vince being escorted from the Cell. I said, "Hey, it's Vince!" and he slapped me on the shoulder and said, "How ya doin', buddy"

I let the kids touch my shoulder and after I explained why, they said "Who's Vince Vaughn?" They were unimpressed at first, not being familiar with most of his work, until I said, "and he was the star of Dodgeball". THEN, they were a bit more impressed.

And the rest of you will have to pay a nominal fee to touch my shoulder...:rolleyes:

He was at wrigley thursday, us cellular friday, the uc saturday, and soldier field sunday. I don't think he's switching sides, just having a fun weekend.Anyone else at the game Friday night see Vinny in the crowd??? They showed him on the jumbo tron.

You can't blame him, I would do the same. It's a pretty cool 4 days even if you don't like the Cubs.

It's also not something you can do anywhere else - at least not as easily as you can do it in Chicago. All those venues are simple to get to from downtown.

I've told this story before, but I'll toss it out again.

Back in 1993, my Bears ST seat mate went to a flubs game during the day. We had exhibition seats for the Bears that night (game started at 7:00). He gets to my apartment at 5:00 or so and right when he gets there, the concierge calls from the hotel I was working at and said she had umpire seats for the Sox game for free that night. It was starting at 6:00. Alex Fernandez was pitching. We grabbed the tickets and jammed to the park. Alex pitched a very fast game and we walked out of Comiskey at 8:00 with the opponent batting in the top of the 9th and the Sox leading 3-0. We made it to SF right before last call for beer (5 minutes into the third quarter back then for night games). We grab two beers and go plunk down in some random seats. Place was mostly empty because it was exhibition and it was the second half.

Still, my buddy went to three live sporting events on the same DAY. Chicago is the only place in the world you could do something like that. NY the travel would take too long to make it possible.

I was at the game Friday, and he was in the section to my left, a few rows in front of me and my friend. From my seats, it looked like he was trying to enjoy the game, but once they put his picture up on the Jumbotron, tons of people started flocking to my section. I understand he's a celebrity, but trying to get his autograph in the middle of the game made it incredibly difficult to see anything happening at third base. Granted in that game, it wasn't a whole lot, but still.

I noticed CBS showed him on TV at the Bears game too. Then magically, a commercial for his new movie come on the TV screen. Vince is not a Sox fan, just likes to be noticed when something is in it for him.

He may be a Bears fan, but he should have been given the John Cusak treatment during the 05World Series. He's all Cubs.

He's got a new movie coming out. What better way to promote it then to hit all the major sporting events wearing the team's cap.

I don't know why people are getting so bent out of shape about him going to a Sox game. So what?

Would people rather have him be the kind of jackass celebrity Cub fan like Jim Belushi or William Petersen who rip on the Sox and didn't even want to acknowledge that the Sox won the World Series?

He's not the only Cubs fan who, in good spirit, ever went to a Sox game. I seem to recall quite a few posters here talking about going to Cubs games too.

Atlanta [the Georgia Dome, Turner Field and Philips Arena are all very near downtown; you can even add Georgia Tech's Bobby Dodd Stadium to that], Philly [all the stadiums are essentially in the same location; though I don't know that they'd schedule them at the same time] and Denver [Coors Field, the Pepsi Center, and Invesco Field are all just a couple miles apart] come to mind as possibilities, as well.

he was at the ND game on Saturday, too

Really?? So was I! We got there like 3 hours before the game and we were walking all over campus and tailgating and all that. Our seats were lyterally on the actual playing field because it was the alumni section and my uncle is an alum. It was amazing. The security even let us stand on the grass at the end of endzone to take some pictures (I have them if anyone cares to see). And we were so close, you could hear the quarterbacks calling out the plays and you could hear the defensive players (usually linebackers) shouting out orders to the defense. Very very good time! Although it sucked that you couldn't drink inside the stadium, but outside was like a very large beer garden. And I didnt see Vince anywhere.

That's not true. I saw him on Jay Leno a few years ago and he said that he was a Sox fan. He admitted that he is a diehard scrubs fan and obviously they come first for him but he even said that he is not one of those guys where it is either/or Sox or scrubs. He says that he roots for them both and even gave the Sox props for winning the 2005 World Series.
