- I know that Mágglio Ordóńez probably will not be attending, but do we know that for sure?

- Will there be a presence at Studio 5 Friday night/Saturday morning/Sunday morning?

- Will we get decent media attention?

My gut tells me with almost 100% certainty that the answer to your third question is NO! I mean it's not like it's Cubs Convention :angry:

Hangar - What time will you be there? I might stop by after grabbing a cup of coffee across the street.

I think there will be decent coverage of SoxFest.
Certainly no flood of stories, but I think you'll see reports on the newscasts at 5 and 10 for sure.
A few fan interview pieces, probably with little kids, stuff like that.

If some WSI fans (like Hanger 18) go through with their protest (whatever form that may take) I can guarantee you that it will get media coverage.

I have already warned some of my media friends that something may be going on and they said that they would watch for it.

Someone from the Soxtalk board is going to ask Williams to resign at his Q&A tomorrow night

Soxfest will be covered after the super bowl stories are completed and useless college basketball scores are given. UNLESS a fan incident happens. Then look out

I probably won't make the NBC 5 events because of my hotel situation (only staying Saturday night but at a nearby hotel), but I'll be looking for you guys on TV early Saturday morning before I head out.

I'm sorry, but he'll be the biggest ass if he does so. That's a joke.

There are several legitimate questions to be asked tomorrow night, but calling for someone to resign on the spot is ludicrous.

I'm sure the next GM the Sox hire will be able to work magic with this self- inflicted payroll and the one after that will, too.....

Yeah, he's going to look like a complete fool.

I hate to brag, but...I won tickets from PaleHoseGeorge's favorite radio station, WXRT, but I don't have them yet and I don't know for sure what time SoxFest starts tomorrow and then when things end Friday.

Well, the magic word "soxtalk" was in there, so I would agree with your assertion.

I think you meant "Some SOX fans (not wsi)". If I do anything, it will be as a SOX FAN, not a WSI Fan, or PETA Fan, or LedZeppelin Fan or anything like that. If/When I do something, it will be as a Sox Fan.
