I went to a TGI Fridays tonight after work and low and behold Mark Buehrle walks in!! He sat at the bar, I didn't want to bother him but I went up and just said "Hey congradulations on the series this weekend."

He said "Thank you."

But he seemed pissed, I later found out that a Cub fan walked up to him and asked him to sign his CUBS HAT!!! Buehrle told the guy to get lost.

:burly
"Get lost"

He got back from Minnesota already?

I guess. It was him though. I guess Carlos Lee, Rowand, and Kelly Waunsh always come in to the Friday's in Lombard.

I met Buehrle at Portillo's in Naperville early in the 2002 season. The place was packed but nobody else recognized him. He was very nice and cordial to me.

They typically board plans almost immediately after games. I'm sure nobody wants to stay in Minny a second longer than necessary. ;)

Especially when the high was about 47 and it poured all day here. The dome actually served a purpose today

Just wondering....

What would Mark have done if that person asked him to sign a Cardinals hat?

Lip Chisoxmike said MB seemed "pissed" - Probably cause the Cardinals just get beat...

I don't know, I actually found Lip's remark kind of funny. Don't know if he intended it as a joke, but I took it as one.

What are some good spots to catch the white sox at? I knew that Tsukasa in Libertyville was always a good place to catch Bears players at on a Friday night before a home game. I actually ate at the the same grill there across from Urlacher and his family once and also saw Brad Maynard and Chris Villarial.

Rowand was at Champps Americana in Oakbrook last night about 3 hours after the game. Frank and Urlacher frequent that place quite a bit also.
My friend gave Rowand some red and blue balloons said "Sorry we're out of Black and Silver"

I met Beuhrle at a driving range in my neighborhood. I saw him hitting and the guy at the counter told me that Mark Beuhrle was here. I didn't bother him and he left while I was hitting so I didn't get a chance to talk to him.

Also, it's not exactly a trans-continental flight.
