A WSI'er suggested around the time of the steroid hearings that when Frank does return, the Cell should rise as one and give him a standing ovation for being true to the game and laying off the roids, thus making us proud....

I think this should be done and all WSI'ers should lead the way, when he comes to bat for the first time and Honda says "Now Batting... 35... Frank.. Thomas" we should all lead the way and urge everyone else to get up as well and welcome the Big Man back...

I don't think we need to worry about that, he'll be getting one tomorrow. Then it's time to showcase him for summer trades.

Can't wait. Very excited that he's coming back tomorrow and that I have tickets.
I hope he doesn't get off to a really slow start at the major league level. Even if he bats .250 for a couple months his walks will help this offense and his presence will help Konerko and Dye/Everett.

And hey, I finally have a WSI Personality! How does everyone like it?

There's no doubt he'll get a nice reception, I just hope he's starting. Either way, he's been around and about before the game singing and talking to fans when I have gotten to the games earlier in the past years

Even if he only hits .250, that's still significantly better than Konerko, Dye and Everett.

I can't wait to see his 5 second Comcast video bumper for when he's leading off the next inning. I wonder if Greg Norton will have one sometime this year?

Standing Ovation before ...and after his homerun...cause seriously...I can't think of an event more deserving of the word inevitable.

Of more interest is what will Nancy play when he comes up to bat?

"Welcome back"?

I think he usually picks out a popular rap song, probably from 50 cent or something

If he doesnt get a standing ovation, I will stand up and walk out of the park

That said, I highly doubt that I have anything to worry about...The park should rock when "Fraaaaaaank Thomas" is announced

Should be a good crowd too....Welcome back Frank :gulp:

Edit: I wont stand up and walk out, Ill already be standing...Ill just walk out :wink:

It would be ablsolutely awesome if he pulls a Bo Jackson and cranks one into the bleachers. It'll be nice just to see the big man in the box again. I'll be the first one standing. I can't wait. What are the odds of him coming back on a game I go to. I LOVE IT!

it's great when the big guy gets out there before the game and belts out a couple songs. i hear he does a great bonnie tyler. :redneck

seriously though. it'll be great to have him out. i really hope he provides the shot in the arm that we need.

Living out of market and being too poor for mlb extra innings and whatever, I'm extremely happy I'll get to see his first game back.

Go frank. take some names.

Could be one of the biggest applauses ever at the Cell when Frank steps to the palte batting in that #3 spot today. Should be a sight to remember! Maybe he can light some firworks off sometime today too?
