I was at the Billy Goat tavern the other day and noticed a letter on the wall from Bill Veeck to the owner of the tavern concerning the sale of the White Sox. The letter was dated 1980. Attached to the letter was a returned cashier's check made out to the "White Sox bid committe" for $20.

I am sure that this is old news to many, but not myself (I didn't start following the Sox until '82). Thought it was hilarious. Veeck had a great sense of humor...
