Noah Wyle? I think he was just throwing out the first pitch.

Noah Wyle threw out the first pitch in an April Game and has worn a Sox Jersey on ER...

In the early 90's between innings..the sox used to run commercials on the scoreboard "Good Guys Wear Black" and Laurie Metcalf ran the bases in a commerical and said the thing she missed most about Chicago was going to Sox Games..

Richrad Roeper in his column has stated he's a season ticket holder and he makes funs of the Cubs..as does John Kass.

Mandy Patankin is from Hyde Park and said in an interview for the Showtime Show "Dead Like Me" that he grew up going to the Old Comiskey...

George Wendt is a die hard as is Mayor Daley...

I haven't seen anything lately with Goerge Wendt being at the games. I do have the video that he hosts about Old Comiskey. I remember they used to have commercials with celebs in them, they were great. It was nice to see the stars in Sox commercials. It was a start of a rebirth for the Sox that ended after the strike and during the retro ballpark craze. Oh, to get back to those early 90's.

Interesting photo. Didn't know the promos of the late 80s, early 90s were into taking pictures of their clients in mirrors. Or did you photoshop that thing backwards or something. It looks so goofy with the mirror-imaged logo.

Does anyone remember a short lived TV show. Drew Carey was a supporting player in a sitcom set in Chicago. The protagonist worked at the" Lincoln Lock Company" and was a Sox Fan. One zany plot even had a moment where the guys boss was coming to dinner, and the family was admonished not to make fun of the boss because he was a cub's fan.

The only famous people i have ever seen at a sox game were both in the late 90's. The first was when me and my dad walked by Bob Love, or something like that. My dad had to explain to me his significance. Then, one game we saw Julia Roberts in the restaurant above/behind right field. She was filming some movie.

I am surprised nobody has brought up Bernie Mac. He is really the only one that I have seen attending white sox games on a semi-regular basis. (He used to sit in the outfield, but I don't think that is the case anymore.)

Hell even when he did the 7th inning stretch at the cubs game a few years ago he blatently said he was a long-time white sox fan.

For several years Steve had season tickets in the Club level. It was funny; he used to talk about Carlton Fisk a lot on his show, almost to the point that he sounded like he was obsessed with Carlton! So sometimes during the games, the camera would zoom in on Steve in his section, and his face would appear on the scoreboard screen, and a few seconds later one of those "thought balloons" would appear over his head, with, you guessed it, Fisk's face in it. It was a great bit for those in the know.

Remember 1993, when Fisk was clearly on his last days with the Sox? Dahl had a scheme on the air where he was going to get the "7" and "2" Lotto balls to come and sit in his seats, as a silent protest to Fisk's demotion. I think the plan got nixxed when Rob Gallas heard about it and sent word that "mascots weren't allowed at the ballpark".

I remember that - then he claimed he dumped his tickets after the WF trade. last week, IIRC, he and his son were talking about Scout Seats - they were going to the game, etc. Steve loved that everything was "included" and he thought about drinking again just to cover the cost of the seats!!

I've seen Wendt in the Stadium Club('98) and MJ in the club level. The weirdest one I ever saw though was Jeremy Piven. He looked like he was lost - I wanted to make the comment that I thought Cusack was a Cubs fan (since Piven religiously attends Cub games with Cusack), but he was with 3 people, and seriously, he looked sick, stoned, or confused. It was in the OF concourse for a Saturday day game against the A's in 2000.

I went to a game several years ago, 98 maybe. Got my seats with my brother and when we sat down, the guy next to us was the lead singer from Counting Crows. I'm not a fan of that band so I don't know his name. He was watching the game and had a Sox hat. Wasn't Eddie Vedder a big Sox fan when Black Jack was still pitching? Wonder if he's been paying attention this year.

I was at a game last year where Twista threw out the first pitch and he was wearing a Bo Jackson black 3rd jersey. Nancy also proceeded to play his rap music on her organ all night, which sounded a bit funny at times. Also, I saw the Rev. Jesse Jackson at a game last year.

There was about a 10 minute window when it was "cool" to be a Sox fan (around the time when New Comiskey opened) and you would see people like Tom Hanks at the park. Of course now it's cool to be a Cubs fan, so you're not gonna see many "celebrities" rooting for our dear Sox - unless of course they win the world series, then we'll get people like David Schwimmer and Tina Fey talking about they've been Sox fans from back when they lived in Chicago. :rolleyes:

For now, it's a cornicopia of C and D list celebrities like "that dude from Surviver: Xanadu" and "the guy who won the 2nd season of The Apprentice."

Don't confuse all celebrities wearing throwback jerseys and Sox hats for fans - they're just wearing what their stylists gave them.

I had no idea who she was. Still the only place I've ever seen her was that commercial. But I thought that was a great ad series. My favorite featured Sox fan John Astin (star of the "Addams Family") as Gomez Addams playing with his trains. One train carried baseballs with logos of the AL West teams on a collision course with a White Sox train.

I would love for the Sox to dig up those commercials, but I miss Sox games in Alaska.

She's not really a Sox fan, but I saw Madonna at a game in the early 90s when she was in town making a movie (that women's baseball league movie). She seemed to be pretty into the game and was jumping up and down when Robin Ventura hit a homerun.

I saw John Shea (actor....if you don't recognize his name, I am sure you'd recognize his face) three or four times at games in 1990 (Old Comiskey, of course). Twice I saw him arrive in a limo, which is not very "Sox-like", but he was sitting with the "regular" fans and seemed really into the games.

Here in Tulsa we get a morning radio show out of Jacksonville, FL, called "The Lex and Terry Show". Great show, but one of their weekly deals is to speak with a guy named Mr. Skin who runs mrskin.com. He's from Chicago and a big Sox fan. He's given many shout-outs to the Sox when he's been on the air.

I am surprised nobody has brought up Bernie Mac. He is really the only one that I have seen attending white sox games on a semi-regular basis. (He used to sit in the outfield, but I don't think that is the case anymore.)

Hell even when he did the 7th inning stretch at the cubs game a few years ago he blatently said he was a long-time white sox fan.Well, we've definitely run Bernie Mac over the coals for not only singing at Wrigley (more than likely because his show, "The Bernie Mac Show" is on the Fox network, and he was promoting the show since the '03 NLCS was on Fox TV), but for also publicly saying "the Sox can go to hell", and "being a Sox fan is like being with an ugly girl who gives good sex."

In fairness to him, he did express sadness over the Sox giving up a first place lead in the A.L. Central in '03 before the Cubs won their division, but he was in FULL Cub regalia when he went to Wrigley for game 7 of that series, and he even said, "...so let's root, root, root for the CHAMPS...CHAMPS!!!" while singing the 7th inning stretch.

So as far as I'm concerned, if he wants to get back into good graces with us diehard Sox fans, he's got some 'splainin' to do about his comments in 2003.

hsnterprize
06-10-2005, 09:57 PM
Also, I saw the Rev. Jesse Jackson at a game last year.


I really don't know if Rev. Jackson is a Sox fan or not. He may seem like it, but in '03 during the NLCS, he was featured on a local newscast saying "How do you spell belief...C-U-B-S."

He was one of those "bandwagoners" just like every other wanna-be-seen person at that time. He was also one of those "we must support both teams" kind of folks back then, too. Whether he's repented of such thinking, I don't know.

06-10-2005, 10:05 PM
Carmern DeFalco...
Bernie Mac (He made sure to include references to the White Sox in Mr. 3000.)...
John Cussack (read in a cubune article that he likes the Sox but roots for both teams)...I can DEFINITELY vouch for DeFalco. He and I went to college together, and I remember days when we would host whatever sports-talk radio show was coming out of Columbia College back in the mid-to-late 90's, that he and I would spar off with a couple of Cubs fans whenever the baseball seasom was going on. I still remember Marc Carmen (Cub fan) flipping me the bird when I told him about something the Cubs were doing wrong. He didn't have an answer for me with his lips, so he let his right, middle digit do the talking. Hilarious to say the least.

With Mac in "Mr. 3000", he said he originally wanted to film that movie at the Cell, but the Sox wouldn't let him for some reason. He then turned to the Cubs, who gave him a ceremonious rejection, too. That's why he ended up making the movie in Milwaukee.

As for Cusack, it's not too suprising he wants to "root for both teams". That is...unless the Cubs are in the spotlight or he's making another crappy movie and he's trying to get an audience to waste their money in seeing it. He certainly ain't that way when it comes to politics...he's a DEMOCRAT all the way. He was at the 2000 Al Gore presidential rally here in town, and I covered it for a radio station I was working for. Any more passion out of him while he was introducing acts, and you'd think HE was running for president that year.

Are you sure about that? I always thought he was a die-hard Cubs guy. Isn't he always at Cubs game? Wasn't he one of the original guys behind "The Bleacher Bums" play?

George Wendt is most definitely a Sox fan, he grew up in the Beverly neighborhood. I've met George's brother Tom on several occasions and he is a die hard Sox fan too.

Someone earlier mentions that George narrates and hosts a program/tape that commemorated 80 years of Old Comiskey Park, and he tells a great story about his dad pulling him out of school to attend the 1959 World Series in defiance of the schools' nuns.

George told his father at the game that he couldn't believe his old man defied the nuns and took him to the game anyway! George's father said something to the effect of..."kid, a moment like this may not ever come this way again"

I don't mean to be offensive when I write this, and I'll say right now that I didn't read the whole thread. There have been numerous threads similar to this that have been made.

I kind of think it's a little pathetic that we find it so important to find out which celebrities are Sox fans.

Again, I mean no offense, but I don't understand what the big deal about it is, to the point of at least three threads like this having been made that I can remember of the top of my head.



edit: I don't blame the threadstarter at all. He is relatively new so wouldn't have known about the previous threads. BTW, a belated welcome to the boards from me.

What's more pathetic is the level of c-list quasi celebrities that make up this list.

I'm happier knowing that we don't have a gang of complete morons like Bonnie Hunt and Jim Belushi waving around a Sox flag and associating themselves with our team.

We do just fine without a bunch of no talent hacks jumping on our bandwagon. Leave that to the "gullible" losers on the North Side.

Don't forget that this post has technically already been answered in a feature on WSI that can be found here:
http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/Fun&Games/FamousSoxFans.htm How come Richard Roeper isn't on that list? He's a die hard Sox fan.

Bears safety Mike Brown says he's a big White Sox fan and likes how they play. He's evidently been following us religiously, per an interview he's giving on the Score.

toby kieth ahd a song out a couple years ago saying he and his dad were sox fans. Boston or Chi I don't know
That song is "Country Comes to Town". That part of the song goes "Im a rough neck. Daddy was a rough neck, too." In the version US99 plays, they dubbed "rough neck" with "Sox fan". Its a great song, and that makes it even better.:bandance:
US99 did a similar dub for a Terri Clark song. At one point in the song, she says "I want to do it all, visit Paris in the fall, watch the Yankees play ball." In the radio version she says Cubs.:angry: As for Toby Keith being a Sox fan, I doubt it just because he is from Oklahoma.

Does anyone remember a short lived TV show. Drew Carey was a supporting player in a sitcom set in Chicago. The protagonist worked at the" Lincoln Lock Company" and was a Sox Fan. One zany plot even had a moment where the guys boss was coming to dinner, and the family was admonished not to make fun of the boss because he was a cub's fan.

The show was "the good life" and the guy was John Campanera (sp?)

He was on The Score earlier today and showed how HUGE of a Sox fan he is. He talked about how the Sox don't get enough love in Chicago and how the Cubs get all the attention. He went on to talk about how he compares the Sox to the Bears because all the guys on both teams are very hardworking and are all blue-collar guys.

He mentioned that one of the main reasons he loves the Sox is because Paul Konerko played baseball for a high school in Scottsdale, AZ, that happened to be Brown's HS rival.

This guy sounds really smart (mainly because he's a Sox fan :cool: ). He also sounds like a Sox Lover/Cub Hater.

Thought you'd all like to hear this. And after hearing this, I am now a huge Mike Brown fan (I liked him before but not as much as I do now).

Go Sox.
Go Bears.

George Wendt IS a Sox fan. Hasn't everyone seen Wendt Furniture on Halsted Street right by the park ? It's been there for decades and that is Wendt's family. He definitely grew up a Sox fan.

Bernie Mac definitely loves the Sox. He loves them so much that he gets as frustrated as any Sox fan. That's why you hear him say some **** about them sometimes. He is a real fan and gets p.o.'d when they don't win.

The Cusacks grew up in Evanston with Piven. They are cub fans. They jump on the Sox bandwagon occasionally.

Da Mare, George Wendt and Bernie Mac are good enough for me, besides would you really want people like: Billy Corgan, the entire Cusack clan, the unfunny Belushi, Ronny Woo Woo Wickers, and Ashton Kutcher to root for the Sox. Being a Cubs fan is the trendiest thing to do and I'd rather not have these talentless hacks at the Cell. You know these people are losers when that repetitive retard Woo Woo might be the most talented member of the group. So F*** em, I enjoy rooting for the red headed step children of baseball. We will see where these losers are when the Sox when the pennant.

These two are a stretch. Cusack is way too conspicuous at Cubs games to be considered a Sox fan regardless of what he says. As for Costner, I think he was just being true to the book, which is about Shoeless Joe. It certainly was nice to see the Sox uniforms featured so prominently in the movie, though.

Frank Thomas, Ozzie Guillen, Jon Garland, Mark Buerhle and the rest of this incredible team. It's obvious we don't have any George Wills, Hillary Clintons, Jim Belushis, Bill Murrays, or other thespian or political devotees of our beloved team.

He had a great old comedy record about his favorite team and some of its players in the 30's. (Bullfrog Bill Dietrich (P), a fireplug with feet. Mike Kreevich(CF), got lost in the ivy at an exhibition game at Wrigley...being a South Sider, he had never seen anything green before...and other similar stuff. He went to NY, later did a radio commercial in his homey style for a gas station chain that was pushing Cubs drinking glasses. I was ready to heave when I heard it.

I think the movie was "My Best friend's Wedding" also starring Cameron Diaz and released in 1997.

Yes, as a movie it's just okay BUT there are several shots of Comiskey (new) and a few in game scenes (look for Ozzie).

The best part of the movie is a scene in which Julia Roberts is wearing a high cut shirt showing off her sexy mid-rift and holding a tray with about 4 or 5 cups with the Sox logo prominently displayed. This would make a great sig photo or tag.

The way for a celebrity to prove their allegiance to the White Sox would be to get themselves invited to sing on the North Side and stun the crowd with an ode to the White Sox rather than the Cubs. Thats what I'd do and until I see it from these so called celebrity sox fans, I'll assume they are fair weather.

I am surprised nobody has brought up Bernie Mac. He is really the only one that I have seen attending white sox games on a semi-regular basis. (He used to sit in the outfield, but I don't think that is the case anymore.)

Hell even when he did the 7th inning stretch at the cubs game a few years ago he blatently said he was a long-time white sox fan.

Let us also not forget that Bernie Mac sang during the 7th inning stretch during Game 6 of the '03 Scrubs-Marlins series, and changed the words to "So it's root, root, root for THE CHAMPS" just minutes before Moises Alou and Steve Bartman crossed paths.

Coincidence? Not likely...

Powerful lesson about celebrating too early.
