Just look for someone wearing the mid or late 60's type Sox hats and that will be me. Oh and a good looking girl with dark brown hair would be my girlfriend Kim, she doesn't like hats.

Once again, I'll be the guy with long hair in a ponytail and a goatee that kinda looks like a truck driver.

I'll more than likely be wearing a black Maggs or Thomas jersey although I do have one white shirt with the Sox logo on the front.

I haven't quite gotten around to getting my picture posted on here yet...

I know what you look like. Look for me. I have met a bunch of people from this board already anyway.

I probably will. The description was more for the people that will be at the fest itself should they happen to see me standing in line or something.

Once I get into the bar, I'll look for you and hopefully be able to recognize a few others (steff, Hangar, Wilkes, etc...) from the pictures I've seen on here.

I think I might just have to join you guys on Saturday, I think I'm bringing my old man.

I'll be there all days. I figure I'll just bring all of my jerseys and tee shirts and change every hour or so. My head has grown so much in the last 3 months that my Sox hat doesn't even fit anymore! I have dark brown hair. I'm about 5'5'' and I have 2 different colored eyes.

I've got a question for those of you w/ hotel reservations for Friday night and letters of invitation to the Loaiza / Hoyt signings. Are you all limited to ONE and only one autograph of each, or is there any chance you might bring an item of mine to get signed, too? That's assuming I get there Friday night, of course.

I'll be wearing the swank black giveaway cap with the flying sock in the red diamond, along with the Hawaiin-style White Sox shirt.

Hal.. Jim and I will see you inside no matter what. There's a good chance we will not make the bar as something has come up.

I would assume that on Friday night it would be sometime between 9 & 10 depending on when people get up there.

Saturday I'm not sure about because the fest ends earlier and people will probably want to grab something to eat first. If I had to guess I'd say it'd be around the same time.

Hope it's nothing too serious. I was looking forward to meeting you guys. Maybe I'll see you at a game this year...

I'll be there with my friend Natalie ready to party both Friday and Saturday night. So, we'll be the two chicks in our late 20's. I'm the short one. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you!

I'm not much of a Soxfest guy, but to all of you who are going, I hope you have a good time and enjoy yourselves, even though this team can be nothing short of infuriating 90% of the time! Again, enjoy!

Serious as...

Yes, WXRT ran a contest for the tickets. Very cool too because I probably would not have gone without the freebies or I would have only gone for one day.

Add me to the list of Friday attendees!

Nothing Serious.

Obviously, I'm not there tonight. However, I plan on being at the Sox Family Party and then the atrium bar on Saturday night. And maybe the sports bar downstairs too.

I was there Friday night with my son, so I wasn't gonna be staying long. I did get a chance to introduce myself to TornLabrum at the WCSF booth.

Which bar is everyone meeting at - the sports bar on the lower level or the other bar (the "atrium" bar?) on the same level as the check-in desk?

Maybe a balloon w/ "WSI" on it, or some sort of table marker is in order...
