Boston not up yet

Even though I am a native Bostonian keep in mind I have seen more MLB games at 35th and Shields than any other ballpark save Fenway. I really hope for a great series and I have no idea how it will play out, if I did I would be wiring the $$$$ to Costa Rica right now :cool:

But for my old friends Bill in Oak Park, Steve in Evanston, Irv in Rogers Park, Jake in Buffalo and all of you at WSI, I wish a great and memorable series.

Funny I am thinking now of 2 guys I met at Comiskey in 1981 when I went to a Good Friday game between the two Sox teams. They invited me back to their neighborhood and I wound up crashing on their couch. I lost their phone number and never saw them again. What I remember was they lived near a bowling alley and a pinball manufacturer (Bally or Midway) But they loved their White Sox and treated this Bostonian like a long lost friend. I hope they are at the Cell today cheering their beloved Sox on.

Enjoy the playoffs.

I can vouch for Fenway. He loves baseball. Always respected the White Sox, was and is gracious even if his number one team is the BoSox. He's a great source for media information and he also had the cajones to call me while the score was 12-2 today. He made no excuses, he just said that the smell of smoke was starting to get to him:D: ! Let's give him a break. We can always rub it in when our Palehose finish the job .
