Fudge!!! :angry: Was planning on getting walk-up tix tomorrow!!!! Anyone ever seen people scalping tix for the Fest??? I assume not, since it's been 9 years since they last sold out for this.

Going to try anyway I guess. Part of me is happy to see so many people are excited about the upcoming season.

Wow I thought Saturday last year was crowded, this is going to be insane. Good thing I'm going Sunday too. I'm not expecting too many autographs but the seminars should be fun anyways.

Ouch! That hurt's. :D:

I'm 2800 North so 8 blks away from baseball hell. One of my buddies, a devout Sox fan lives one block from Wrigley and can see that back of the scoreboard from his front window.

Why he moved there I'll never know. There are a lot of Sox fans up north...once the Sox start winning they'll show their faces.

Have fun at the fest!

You should try at the bar in the Hyatt, a 1/3 of those guys won't end up making it in. Probably could get a couple of tix for a couple of beers!

actually this turned out to be incorrect...they were selling tickets saturday morning...the sox decided to sell tickets to everyone who showed up because they said they got the word out so late that alot of people didnt get it and were already spending money on parking and stuff...so they let them all in...

Yep. We went down anyway and they sold us tix (but did warn us that it was crowded). Had a good time! Bought a lot of memorabilia to add to the collection. :gulp:
