and will be at the Sox game Saturday night. Can't wait.

Anyone else planning on going Saturday? Need to meet up with RedPinStripes or whatever the heck he calls himself these days...

P.S. -- anyone have a ticket they won't be using?

And looking at the Weather predictions, I guess I won't need to pack my shorts and sandals....

Im going again this Saturday-
went yesterday and now it looks like Garland'll be up again

ugh...
Im liking this guy less and less

he seemed a bit cocky on the post-game interview I thought for such an embarassing outing...


also-
anyone know where Grandstand is?
I want to get a jersey personalized and the SOX wont do it for me
they mentioned Grandstand?

does anybody know if they sell patches/ personalize jerseys that are not bought from them?

any website/ phone numbers?

can I safely walk there before the game?

any help is appreciated

Grandstand is about 3 blks WEST of the ballpark. its on 35th
and Wallace. Yes, they do a Fantastic Job personalizing the jerseys with Numbers/Names. They use the same Letters/Numbers that are on the real uniforms, so definitely have them do it. They have some already numbered, but will do yours with whatever number you want, Usually takes about 1 week to get done. They call you when its done. Tell them Hangar18 sent you.....

Made a stop in there yesterday, haven't been in a long time. Awesome store, they've got everything.

Yes, Grandstand is the place for your jersey needs and it is quite safe to walk there. Just a short stroll from the ballpark in the Bridgeport neighborhood. Be sure to go before the game since they close up the store relatively early (7 or 8PM I think). Last time I was there they had Konerko, Thomas, Ordonez, and Valentin jerseys pre made and they'll customize any player you want but it usually takes a week or so. I've gotten great service there. Below is a link to their site. I'll be at the Saturday game too, booing down Torii Hunter and Doug Mienkewiecz :D:

I'll be there Saturday also, and may have an extra ticket. The seat is in the UD and with the fireworks, we will probably have to actually sit there - no big deal, good seats close to home, half way up.

Well that just figures...

Everyone is going Friday or Saturday and I'll be there on Sunday (because of kid's day). :(:

I'm using the 4 tickets I got from the Soxfest package and decided to bring my two oldest daughters to their first major league game.

Oh well. I'll be at one of the Cubs/Sox games again this year so maybe I can catch up with a few of you guys then... :cool:
