I met PHG, Jerry_Manuel and Dan H at Soxfest in 2002. I have seen Torn
Labrum, Hangar 18 and steff in person, but haven't actually met them. I
only know what they look like because I've seen their pictures on WSI.

None... however, I have a feeling I've come close. Like two ships passing in the night.

In SanDiego a couple weeks ago, I met a ton of us.
TheBull, ChisoxCali, Longshot for starters. There were also a number of
"lurkers" who read my post on meeting at Dicks by Petco and introduced
themselves like Barry and Rob who lives in Pt Loma CA.

None. But yeah, I'm sure I've passed quite a few of you kids on the concourse or parking lots.


Once again, this brings up the idea of some kind of WSI identifier. I personally like the idea of a flying sock patch to be sewn onto jersey sleeves.

I've met a couple. I know a couple went to my high school like Hawk_DJ and one other. I also met two others when I got tickets off them from the Parking Lot. Everyone is cool too.

Hangar I met you at McNally's in 2003 for the NLCS and I've seen you a couple of times since. That's about it for me. Actually I think you have pictures posted of us after the game?

I'm sure the *Official Roll Call* will come up later, but Mrs. EastCoastSoxFan and I will be decked out in Sox gear at the game on Tuesday August 9th...

Yeah, I remember you. Werent those pics great? Speaking of pics, We
have some great pics of us in SanDiego, at Dicks after the Sat Nite game.
Seems a group of exotic dancers stopped by for drinks ........

I showed the pictures from Barrys camera to Neil Cotts and Cliff Pollitte
in the bullpen, they loved it

I've seen you at sox fest and at many games. The only reason I know its you is because of the WSI picture gallery. Maybe one of these days, I'll say whats up.:D:

I was at one of the Angels games and this blonde cries out - a bit out of slap distance - "Go Cubbies!" and I commented to the guy sitting next to me that she really shouldn't have gotten tanked before the first pitch and his reply was "Well, Cub Fans are Drunk." and I could have sworn it was going to be our very own CFAD, but when I asked the friend he was attending the game with if either of them posted on WSI or not, I was informed that neither of them have ever tried it, but that they had heard good things about it.

By the way, the one fellow said he used to have Lee Elia's rant loaded into his computer to fire off when he opens windows. I told him I was surprised it didn't melt his hard drive.:D:

For the WSI "Elders," Hangar18, steff, WhiteSoxWilkes...All three of them are upstanding people.

I hope to meet more this year as we aim to get to (and win) the World Series!

I've met Hanger at Soxfest. He was kind enough to show me some of the construction the Sox were working on for renovations. I introduced myself to Torn Labrum (Hal) at his booth and I met Santo=Dorf at opening day this year in Champaign. I think that's it.

I met Realist this weekend. Awesome guy.

If anyone was at Jimbo's on Wednesday and saw a sunburned guy wearing a black Buehrle jersey, that was me.

I know Mohoney but I've never met any others.

I'll be at Saturday's game with idiot cubs fans on the deck of the BSB. I'll be the tall, blonde one in a sox shirt, khaki short and sox hat. Come say hi if you think of it. I could use the moral support.

I saw some one with a shirt that said "Hangar 18" on the front and "H*ACDClightning bolt*18" on the back at Arlington Park a couple weeks ago, it looked like a completely different person than your pics in the photo gallery tho

None so far...but if you ever see a female wearing a WSI t-shirt at the game, come up and say hi. It just might be me. :wink:

Was the store Woodman's? We do our shopping there most of the time.

I know darklord23, I think he registered here at WSI because I'd always check this site when I was at his house. The Big Squirt teaches at my old high school, but I never met him. That troll habibaru also went to my school, but thankfully I didn't know him. Or atleast I think. :)

I've met Hangar18, Steff, and Pinwheels at SoxFest, I met TornLabrum at the WCSF booth (and thanks again for the Maggs bobblehead!), and ewokpelts at SoxFest, as well as one of those sports shows in Rosemont. I'm forgetting a few, too.

I have not had the honor of meeting Hangar18, but I have met TDog. And, in a state of total drunkenness, I met whitesoxwilkes in the atrium bar the Saturday night of SoxFest (when we hung out with Ozzie Jr. who was holding court).

Would love to meet everyone else!

I had the privilege of watching a Jackhammers game with Torn, it was a pleasure to watch a game with someone that keeps score.
