Will there be a WSI tailgate on Opening Day? I'd love to stop by, get some faces to go with names and bring some cold ones to share.:D:

I also have some baseballs from last year that need to be blown up/eaten/exorcised.......

I'm down. I've never been to Opening Day before, so now that I'm back in Chicago after college I'm ready to make this an annual tradition

I don't have a parking pass. A have a street parking permit from a resident, otherwise, I'd host one.

I'm not going to lug grills and chairs and stuff down to gate 2 and back (been there, done that, not gonna do it again). But if there are enough grills available, I'll bring some chow and drinks in disposable containers.

I'll have a Sox hat on. Have not yet decided if it will be my current black and white version or the early 70's red one. I'll also have my Sox jersey on, but under my winter jacket. Will that work? :rolleyes:
Seriouly, however, I would just ask people who look like die-hard fans if they are from WSI. If they say no, tell them about it!:smile:

Since I will be riding down on the Red line, it would be super helpful to know where to look for the WSI party. I will be wearing my brand-new Burly-man jersey as well as a white sox hat. I'll probably have my two die hard white sox fans with me as well.

Can't it be Opening day next monday? :bandance: :bandance: :bandance:

So, that I can do this :gulp: with some fellow WSI Sox fans?

Go Sox.

I'm thinking if any hardcore WSIers are in the lots, they could hang a WSI tee shirt or some kind of WSI banner from their vehicle. Of course, this being Comiskey, there a ton of lots spread out all over where people could be. Post (and pre) game there is always Jimbos!

What about the pre-paid lots?? Can you use that pre-paid stub for the lot by gate 2, I Love that lot, premo tailgate action. Correct me if I am wrong but you can tailgate in the prepaid lots right?
