My brother in 135 saw Gov. Thompson in his usual seats, and Dick Vitale.

Someone was getting personal service down in row 1 section 128. A waitress kept walking beers and food down there. We saw Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives Michael Madigan walking up towards the end of the game, so it may have been him. Don't know if he counts as a celebrity, though.

Not that seeing Mayor Daley at the game is unusual, but I literally ran into him after the game. I was talking to my brother and admiring the atmosphere when I accidently nudged the Mayor when he was walking out of the park.

I saw a bunch of security guards around and thought for sure I was going down. But I apologized and he said excuse me and my brother had a good laugh. I guess I was seen on Fox News walking behind the mayor as well, so that's fun.

Minnie Minoso was sitting right in front of us...but then again, he's at a lot of games.

Madigan, was more than likely with alderman Olivo from teh 13th Ward...who I saw on TV. They share the same office and same season tickets...not that they are studs or anything.

According to the Sun-Times, MJ was there.

Personally, I kind of like the fact that we're not known for what celebs show up at our park. That's something for the North Side. Besides, we have the Major on our side....and that speaks for itself!

Minnie was there signing autographs and in general being a great old timer.

Also I think I saw Frank Thomas :D:

I ran into Bill Daley (Mayor Daley's brother) at Game 1. Outgoing Fire GM Peter Wilt was in Section 102 for Tuesday's game. I spotted Minnie on the concourse tonight. Of course, Da Mare was there again tonight.

Also, during the course of these games, I also ran into...

Must be the Terry Francona connection

Selig was there. Didn't get a chance to ask for an autograph.

Selig was there. Didn't get a chance to ask for an autograph.

A guy in Section 335 was leaning over and jawing at some guy named "Bud" who was in the announcer's booth. I didn't have to think very hard about who he could mean.
