I remember a series of commercials from around 1993 or 1994 (I think), where Thomas, Ventura and another player were CIA or FBI agents. It was supposed to be like a mini series, in commercials, if I remember correctly.

I wish I remembered what it was called.

EDIT - Actually, it might be more like 1996 or 1997 - the 3rd guy may have been Belle.

I loved the Pepsi Half Price Tuesday commercial with Magglio Ordonez about 8 or 9 years ago. He had a wagon with Pepsi products behind him.

Commercial commentator: "Is that Magglio Ordonez at the White Sox ticket window? Magglio, what are you doing there?

Maggs: "It's Pepsi Half Price Tuesday!!!"

(inside the ballpark)

Maggs: "Drink Pepsi, and I'll see you in the ballpark!"

I seem to remember a commercial for "White Sox Pizza" (anybody ever eat one? Were they any good?) with Ron Kittle and Scott Fletcher...

It was 1998. They called the campaign Lineshot. And yes, the third player was Belle. I have the poster hanging in my room at home. The tagline says "For the bad guys, it's no runs, no hits, no mercy".

YES, that was it. I was only in 8th grade then, but I remember one of the commercials with the three of them walking in the street, towards the camera, with the serious/FBI type of walk, to the music of "swing batter batter... swing batter batter..."

Forgot about the brilliant tagline. Wish these were up on YouTube.

One I'd love to see is the Wendy's commerical with Ozzie from the early 90's. Wendy's made some money off my wife during that commercial's run. (She loved/loves Ozzie.)

My favorites were the "Gabe and Walker" Fallstaff commercials from the early 1970's. Sam Elliot was Walker before he became famous later for hi movie work.
