... I tried to do a search but couldn't find anything

With all the celebrating of the Sox distant and recent history, has anyone seen/heard from Bo Jackson?

I know we didn't get his best years but he had some heroic performances in a Sox uniform. It would have been nice to see his face (I think I saw him a little bit in the video they showed today) around!

I also think he starred in one of the best Sox commercials that was ever done -- anybody remember "Shoeless Bo Jackson?" That was Great!

Someone said he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at one of the post season games.

Bo Jackson threw out the first pitch to Robin Ventura on the Sunday Night cold rainfest that featured Paulie's Grand Slam and Scott's Walk Off.

i am sure you don't regret 1 minute of it either .... i was at home for game 2, had tickets for game 1, my mom and aunt came over to watch the game and during it they said to be happy that i had tickets for saturday and not sunday with the rain ... then paulie jacked the grand slam and i said i would of given anything to of been there for that ... and pod's walk off just made it that much sweeter !!!
