How they stepped in and paid for naming rights and they are now getting rave reviews about how the stadium looks nice now after it was much maligned when new comiskey was built.

This man, born on the south side, really hates the cubs. His favorite day is when the cubs lose in extra innings. Favorite teams? any team that beats the cubs. If you root for both teams, you weren't born in Chicago. He then talks about '58 '59 Sox how they traded away all these all-stars....

I think they will have a summary and audio archive and you can fast forward. Also there is a phil rogers interview.

Not sure if this information was out, but John Rooney, CEO of US Cellular, is an unabashed Sox fan!

He was just interviewed on ESPN Radio. Was talking about the whole naming rights thing with Comiskey. Talked about being a life long Sox fan (grew up on the South Side). Even has the same hatred for the Cubs we all do!

All in all, I liked the interview. :)

That's an interesting name for him to have.
