i have not run into this vendor yet at us cellular until tonight... not a newbie or bandwagon jumper, i've had the 26 game plan for 3 years running now but i never ran into this vendor before. im sure the reaction to this guy runs from marginally amusing to pretty annoying (of which im the latter, being at my first and only world series game, and this guy keeps walking in front of me!). anyone know who i'm talking about?

he's been there as long as I've been going to games. He also sells beer on the north side of town.

Absolutely. I've seen him a number of times this season. Actually I think he's one of the vendors who knows my face from going so often. He kinda freaks me out.

He has been there for awhile. I think he gargled gravel as a child to get that voice that he does.

He's been a regular at White Sox and Hawks games for decades. I am sure he does Bulls, Bears and Cubs games as well - I just don't attend many (nor the Hawks after we dumped our season tickets of 15 years until Wirtz is no more).

Yep, I've seen him. This guy cracks me up. He often goes up to random people who aren't paying attention to him and offers that he'll go away if they buy a beer. Definitely one of the more entertaining vendors at the park.

Yeah I have encountered Russell many a times. He is dope. I hear him on tv sometimes too. There is also a very loud hot dog guy I hear a lot.

His card says if he can't get there by CTA, he "don't want to go", but then the card lists a bunch of out-of-state places he sells beer at!
:redneck Awesome!

I think I've seen him; he sounds familiar just from the description.

I was wondering if someone would mention that hot dog guy. I've heard him on tv a lot and at games even if he's not close to my section.

I saw a guy ask for his card yesterday at the game! Any vendor that has his own card is ok in my book.

Russel is usually along the 3rd base line. My seats were in 147 this year and I alwyas see him and the "Hot dog lady". They are my favorites.


At one game this year, Russel was selling lemon chill instead of beer. We asked him what was up with that and he said, "I'm being taught a lesson." I've also seen him at Miller Park when the Sox are out of town.

I saw him late in the season in the Upper Deck.

I think Russ' hot dogs sales call is his best.
