Remember when the Sox threatened to move to Florida in 1990? I believe that they were set to move into the "Florida Suncoast Dome." Is that the same place as Tropicana Field?

Wow, there might not be any White Sox playing anywhere today if that was to be the move.

Yup, same place.

and here's a little aside...then Sox relief pitcher par excellance, Bobby Thigpen's dad was the head of the power company in the Tampa / St. Pete area. Good ole Uncle Jerry was talking with him directly about the requirements the Sox would need had they moved.

I'm one of those who sent dirty white socks to the mayor. I wonder how many of those he got?

Actually, I'm going to be in St. Pete this weekend for my sister's 50th surprise birthday party. If only she had been born two weeks earlier, then I could have caught one of the Sox games.

When I walked in, I felt like I was going to a hockey game. However, it was a great place to get pictures and autographs.

Probably just a ruse to go around Thigpen's agent to negotiate his next contract
